As previously reported Jim Bruce traveled from Massachusetts with his friend Pat to join us for a little ride through Florida on the Tran-Florida GS Rally. Jim bought a brand new Triumph Tiger 800XC for this trip and it preceded to eat not one, but two rear wheel bearings. 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!!
The adventure begins when the plan fails....
