I may try to fly up and meet you guys next month. A 1.1 hour flight in a BE36 versus a 3.45 hour ride from near Houston. Curious to know what you guys think of Lone Star HD/Triumph over on the east loop.

Personally, went to get a quote for major service on Tiger 800 and they had no clue. They were looking in the hook to figure out what it is, what service included, what to charge...at $1,300 and counting (looking rather confused) I politely excused myself.

My observation is they are primarily a Harley shop and are pretty much clueless with Triumphs. Invest in a manual and do it yourself or head west to metroplex...

Thanks for the service feedback. I live near south of Houston, so I don't plan on using their service.

I stopped in on my last visit and they had a couple of Triumph leftovers that looked attractive, but their ask was high versus what I see on CycleTrader. Just wondered if from the sales side they seemed interested in moving stuff. From what you both said about service, I am not optimistic.

I looked at his leftover Trophy and he is still at new price for a couple year old bike. A few guys that are met I’ve to this area indicated he has the bike shop as a hobby and the gun shop next door is his primary business.

I recommend you see what Woods Fun Center has in Austin if looking for a deal (other than CycleTrader).

I've missed it for the last months. I had just returned from Illinois on Friday before and with the cooler temps that morning and the long day the day before, I didn't feel like a cool ride for breakfast that day. Hoping for better weather and no conflicting schedules next month.
