The second failure destroyed the the wheel hub and swing arm, making his bike unrideable. Two wheel bearing failures in less than 400 miles????

Update: Triumph promised him a new bike. Last week Triumph came through and replaced his broken bike with a brand new 2013 Tiger 800XC, plus some accessories to make up for the ruined vacation. I love a happy ending!!
That's SWEET!! Good on ya Triumph
