Annual Service

Service date today.

As I haven't managed to hit 10000 miles yet, I booked the annual service instead. It's cheaper luckily.
It should have been last week but due to the building work at the Triumph shop it was put back a week.

This morning it was freezing. Cars iced over but at least the roads clear enough. By the time I got to Ashford my fingers were frozen at the tips. 

After changing the date when I got to the Triumph shop the workshop looked like it was weeks away from finished. So we schlepped across to the other shop where  they usually have KTM, Ducati and Kawasaki.

Outside was another Rocket fitted with a supercharger. I'd love to hear that running. I took a couple of photos.

Some three hours later I got an sms to say it was finished. We were in Folkestone  walking the dog and watching a ceremony where they were commemorating the centenary of the ending of The Battle of the Somme in 1916. A picture here too.

At least it was dry and cold but not as cold as the morning.

They have adjusted the clutch and that took a bit of getting used to. But otherwise it passed all its electronic tests and felt a bit more responsive.
