Even though theres snow on the ground the showrooms are still quite busy possibly this has been caused by the launch of the Speed Triple and the anticipation for the long awaited Tiger 800. The launch nights we held for the Speed were excellent with huge intrest at both Blackburn and Manchester. Have looked at the video and a couple of the people who were sitting on the bike on the launch night have had a demo and now placed a deposit and are awaiting iminenet delivery ready for next season. We have had notification from Triumph that the deposit list for the Tiger 800 stretches right through to March of next year. So anyone who is serious please please get that all important deposit down and secure one of these fantastic machines. We will happily put it in writing that the deposit is fully refundable should you ride our demo and not be completely satisfied. Triumph debit our account by £300 for every order taken so your deposit is secure and also your delivery is going to come at a time when you will have the best part of the season. Robert Murphy and Peter Hill went to Barcelona with Triumph to test the new Tiger and the feedback was of an excellent machine that just did everything as it should and more besides. Rob relly enjoyed it and sounds as though he pushed it as far as he dare.
The fat man in the red coat and white beard will soon be coming down the chimney. The turkey will be eaten the presents given and the days will soon start getting longer. That just after christmas lull is sometimes excellent for us motorcyclists and a real pleasure to ride in. I have to say that unusually I havent done much riding this winter must be getting soft. But have rather a lot on and seem to be pushing forward on several different fronts. The new build is out of the ground and should have some more up to date photos on the webb re that soon. Am having to do all sorts of tosh around the build there seems to be a huge amount of red tape nowadays.Dont remember doing this much when we built Blackburn.
Visited the bike show I thought it had re gained its sparkle and was a good event. Took my dad and Dave and we all had a really good day we made good time on the journey there and back and came a way all enthusiastic about next year. The Triumph stand was excellent and it was good to see Piaggio Group there as well. If the upbeat atmosphere transfers into the market then 2011 should be a cracker. Its got to be a good summer surely bring on that global warming.
