The arrow has a very nice deep resonance and barks and burbles under deceleration. That bike moves like a scalded cat when you ask it to...

Nice bike...probably the eventual replacement for my 955.

Mark and Brad really do an exceptional job running that place. I bought my 05 Tiger from them and they are some of the best i've ever dealt with.

Please tell them Constantinos sends his regards when you go by.

Best line in the BIKE magazine article: "...and a final drive that actually works..." Zing!

Big Triumph fan, I'm glad to see this machine hit the street.

Neat looking bike, for sure. I'm excited by the idea of it.

Test ride on Saturday morning and then a decision will be made.

Rep best have a Speed Triple R and know how to ride it given that he kept me waiting this long

If your guys have trained their mechanics it should be soon. My guy trained his last week (towards the end of the week) and the bike shipped almost immediately.

I would send my dealer emails every week, mostly to make him laugh but also so he didn't forget I was itching to spend $18k with him. He said he liked getting the emails

Keeping my fingers crossed for you mate (at least until Saturday when I may need to uncross them to deal with the RBW throttle I hear so much about).
