Thanks, 'Tires'.

I visited the Triumph factory back in July and learnt that they have to keep spares for bikes for 7 years. Not sure if that is a Triumph culture or a European manufacturing protocol. But I accept your point. Funny thing is though, if I kept spare fairings for all my bikes, I'd have 10 sets in the loft (attic).

However, I would like a USA set of fairings which we cannot get here because Triumph, albeit pompously, will only supply parts to a specified VIN. Your USA/Canada model has nice red accents on the fairing (see pic) which I tried my hardest to get here, but Triumph wouldn't have a bar of it.

Thanks Chris. It's worse now I know the bike is in the dealer's. Have to wait for pre-delivery etc. Will probably be able to collect on Friday - pending weather. Will certainly provide a review, but with my mileages shared between rides, it won't be run in until 2024 .

And thanks to you also. I have been 'fine-tuning' the collection for a while now. Of course, no enthusiast is ever 'completely' happy, but must now show some restraint. The problem with restraint though, as my friend @anothermvfanatic will attest, is that it wanes very quickly when another bargain hits eBay!!

So true. It falls like an algebraic equation. The bikes a man wants to possess is always n+1. Where n is the number he already has. You have the CBR1000RR-R which will be stellar. I have been looking into getting that.

Don't have it yet. It's on order. UK delivery is suggested March/April, but I hear from US Honda forums that you guys must wait until June, AND you get only the SP version. Seems that USA has a massive backlog of 2018-19 CBR1000RR (both base and SP models) so you get the RR-R SP with Honda hoping that those who won't spend as much will opt for the 2019 bikes. Doesn't make sense to me. I'd rather buy a 2020 R1 than have to buy a 2019 Blade!

Thanks, Rob.

So what's happened to you? Very silent on the purchasing front of late?

Ah yes. It must be those feminine stares and glares each time you look at eBay or motorcycle shops!!

Have you kept the yellow R1? (I see it's still in your signature)
