  1. Welcome Lenny, did you get your minor problem solved then

    New ride....

    Don't ever be sorry for owning a Triumph. Great looking bike bud. I've got its granda, a 1959 Speed Twin Yea, cmon bipps, you know it makes sense
  3. Welcome to the madhouse mate
  4. I rode an XS1100 for about 8 years and if there was a difference, I never noticed. I happily jumped from that to my Bonnie (chain driven) with no alteration of riding (chain v shaft wise anyway)
  5. Probably better not asking the same question in different sections bud
  6. To counter that, I sent a letter to Yamaha UK with a Q plate XS1100 I bought. They sent me a letter informing me it was a 1979 model manufactured for sale in Europe. This was enough to get me a T plate registration for it. This was about 1991/2 so most likely things have moved on since then

    I looked at that one, £12000 phew, and the Street Scrambler (no price on it). Both looked good

    Following on from our wee chat about Triumph leaking straight from the factory I ordered a new cam cover gasket, 4 new stretch bolts and 4 seals and got a call today to collect them. Up to Glasgow I went and the guy tells me £76, "whit for a gasket and 4 bolts" "Oh wait" says the guy, "they have sent up 4 gaskets and 1 bolt" They must know it's a leaky bike Anyway a nice wee run over the moors on the way home
  11. As above mate. My thoughts and prayers are with you both Positive Attitude seems to be a good thing for some sufferers
  12. Uh uh mister In saying that my new(ish) Bonnie leaks but none of my auld yins did
