It is a British bike afterall. Beautiful if only a bit quirky. Good luck, but I know you will find whatever is ailing it soon enough.Wonderfully cool, clear and slightly windy day....VFR weather. Did a couple hours on an abbreviated North Shore run. As its a normal workday...traffic was sparse. Yeah, this retirement gig thing is workin' out.
Back to the Triumph 675 electrical mess later this afternoon.
There is extremely little that is British about modern Triumphs. Just about the name and the Headquarters. All of the parts are sourced globally, probably a good thing.It is a British bike afterall.

after errands this morning, my usual short run ....encountered HIGH tide. Where'd all that sandy beach go?
If I may ask...what grades and subjects do you teach?
I might indulge upon a dinner time North Shore run tonight....different on a couple of levels, what with the 650R being the antithesis of the 900SS and all. Yup, @Devilsfan....I got it!
Way too early to offer any fair observations other than it DOES easily accept being "thrown around" a bit...and Honda I-4 smooth, so smooth. Clutch pull effortless.
Obviously, I'm breaking in tires and engine, even scuffing in brake pads. Overall taking it easy...I'll become less kind as some miles get on...will offer fair feedback based on gradual, moderately aggressive inputs, when appropriate.
SOP....will personalize (adjust) both hand and shift controls before leaving tonight.
And the long tail must go *soon* ....options exist.
That looks like a beautiful spot. Thanks for sharing the pic.after errands this morning, my usual short run ....encountered HIGH tide. Where'd all that sandy beach go? Walked a couple of laps around the perimeter for usual exercise, too.
