Excellent, good to know as there is no Triumph dealer within 80 miles of me.  Thank you!  :031:

Congratulations. The receipts and one ownership make it even more of a bargain.

 :405:  Enjoy the new ride.

It is a reference to Jim Hamlin. He owns Hamlin Cycles in Bethel Connecticut, about three hours from you in Binghamton NY. It's an Aprilia/Moto Guzzi dealership but Jim was a Triumph mechanic for years and owned several Tigers, Speed triples, and Sprints so he knows his way around the 1050 bikes, especially the Tiger. Still works on many Triumphs at his shop and has all the factory special tools and diagnostics software.

Hey itsbconnor,

You're like a brother from another mother. I have a 2012SE, used to live in upstate NY (Ithaca/Corning) and my trail bike is a DR350. Welcome to the forum!

Binghamton is a hike from CT. That being said, Hamlin really knows his way around one of these bikes.

I do have suspension on my bike done by Hamlin, and it's superb, so if you're looking to upgrade your ride for bumpy NE, you can't go wrong having him do the forks with Racetech and the rear with whatever you prefer (Ohlins on mine).

Good luck!

Thank you for the new welcomes!  My niece goes to Ithaca College, actually picked up this bike from McGraw, and my good friend went to New Paltz although she rode a Vespa there, lol.  I just tried to post pics but not working from phone, promise I will get you some soon.  Picked her up Saturday, fresh snow so had to trailer home, itching to take her for a walk!
