I just rang the dealer to see if they have any news as to when the Sprint GT will be ready for me.
It turns out it arrived in from Triumph today! Still crated up and needs to be PDI’d but we’re more or less there: the vanity plate will need to go on as well, but we’re there or thereabouts.
And there’s a nub of an idea forming about running it in with a couple of big trips: one for the initial running-in period to the free service at 500 miles and then a longer trip to get to know the bike properly.
Now all I need to do is work out where to go: I’m thinking a couple of long weekend rides for the former and somewhere in Europe for the latter…
