I ordered whatever they get in Blue. They never asked though I expect that given they placed the order in late December (they called me to say Triumph needed to know what color I wanted) I expect I was on the list for a launch one.

I hope it is, as a few weeks ago the wife said "So how much is the bike again?" and I said probably close to $18k with taxes and stuff and she said "Oh, I thought you said $23k, so that's good". If I had only said $19k there would be an arrow can in my near future; oh well!

Truly! If his wife doesn't have any more periods than that sentence, he had better forget the bike and start buying baby furniture

You have to admit that was a helluva run on sentence. Then again, everyone is a friend around here and Hemingway famously made a fortune from long sentences, so who are they to judge? ;)

Tapatalk just popped up a message that I was banned and I'm thinking that's either a software error or someone took offense to my comments about grammar ;(

Anyway, I am expecting that the Explorer is going to be my next bike.
