thought about posting on triples online but I'm brand new there and that *would* set off alarm bells.
Don't see why - if anyone did query, several regulars both here and on TriumphRat who 'know' you online; certainly I'd be more than happy to 'speak up' ('post up'?) or simply link to here or TR? If you see a bike on, say, Fleabay, by definition the seller must expect complete strangers wanting to see the bike?
was thinking of possible flying over and renting a car etc. Might be better in the summer and ride it straight back, the best way to get to know a bike is to take it on a 700 mile ride, right?........... ;-)
Mmmm ... I believe 'one way rentals' - e.g. pick up at airport, drop off in, say, Norwich - are more expensive in GB than the US or Canada? Aiui, UK vehicle rental companies don't like 'em and price accordingly?
Also, I rode my allegedly fully-rebuilt T150 for 500 miles before connecting an o.p. gauge and discovering all wasn't as it should be ...
the land around Norwich is somewhat flatter than the land around Geneva ...?
