Hmmmm...

Yep, my ST has the gear selector problem. AJ's said "Triumph don't recognise it as a problem" we can fix it for $150. It's better than it was, but not fixed properly. Otherwise I like this bike, easily the best engine of all the bikes Ive owned.  But, my next motorcycle will be a YAMAHA :upyours:

Kwaka?

I looked at all theJap brands and what is available in mid size touring. Kawasaki have the Versys 650 twin (engine too small) and the Versys 1000 four (too big) Yamaha have the TDM 900 twin. Ive test ridden one and found it to be perfect all round motorcycle and most suitable for touring. Oh and BTW Kate.... thanks for the little dig about seniors. Did you know your new motorcycle is LAMS approved???? :tease: :tease:

2 motorcycles now

Becareful Kate, when you have more than 1 motorcyle in the shed they start to multiply. Soon there will be 6 LOL. Prolly a good idea to keep the Sprint, when you buy the 650. Only trouble is a RWC to change to SA reg. Too far from Turn One :cry:

No problems changing the rego

No problems changing the rego over to SA. No RWC needed if its registered interstate. My car has now a SA plate. My license is now SA, and when I get back from Darwin I'll change the bike over. Did I mention we are going to Darwin on Friday for a couple of weeks . :yahoo:
