Hey Mr J ... you made it back alive ... :-)

I can feel a V2 coming on :-)

Sunny Fri Niters sound good too!

You're too shy to consider this one? ... http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=384114

Congrats on making it back alive, Mr. J. I wondered what the weather was going to be like for you!

Sadly, while you were away, a member of Pink Floyd carked it...

As we were saying today Dan , would Andreas fit on one of those?

Foot pegs look very close to the seat in that pic.

This one is more Andreas style , with lots of leg room with those forward controls.

Seriously tho.... I feel you would hard pushed to find a more reliable bike than the mighty GS500. Didn't Kerry ride hers to Darwin and back with no trouble and the BM blew up getting off the ferry on the way home. As the others have said. I think you need a bike with plenty of leg room, instead of a praying mantis on the DR. Have you ridden Mr J KLR for size?

Oh....no..... Say it isn't so. Sell the Vstrom. Mr J and I sold our Triumphs to buy Vstroms. My new Sprint was a horror show. Would not start. chew through plugs every 1000 km ,and would try to kill you with every corner. Did look perdy tho... When it ran

well I had to go look on my own as the promises for information on a couple of bikes through this thread never happened, so off I went to test ride other bikes
its an 08 Sprint and I loved it!!
it has 20mm bar rises on it as standard and ohhh so much better than anything else I have riden, not so hunched over.
Tried to kill you on corners??? what do you mean by that, in the words of that famous redhead, Please Explain. Oh and what year was yours ??

I looked at the Daytona also but they are soooo tiny, my big butt hanging off it might cause accidents in traffic from scaring people .

It comes with the Panniers standard and only had 1000km's on it, he is only selling it as he is getting the new 09 one to ride around on (Larry from Motorworks).

Mine was a lemon in colour and by nature. I bought it new off Larry in 04'. It was the first Triumph Motorworks had sold. Kept it for 2 long years trying to sort out the problems with it. Triumph UK & Aus knew me on a first name basis. I have forgot how many fuel maps where put on it from all different models to try and make start when cold. Would not run on any fuel that was sold in Tassie. I had to add octane booster every time I filled up. Ended up a Tiger fuel map in the end.

Had the whole bike apart trying to fix the woeful handling. I had never owned a bike that wanted to kill me every time I rode it. Found out in the end. It was a new bike I was sold, but not recently made. I was not told my Sprint had been siting around for over a year. With the Suspension fully compressed and the tires flat spotted in a crate somewhere. I pulled the front end apart so many times trying to get the forks to work. I would always end up on the wrong side of the road on exiting corners.
