Seattle Triumph S3 genius required :)
Hi guys, love the site... it's awesome how helpful and generous you all are
I'm in need of some assistance myself. I'm quite wary about the risks of buying older, second hand motorcycles.
My predicament is this, I'm coming over to Vancouver in March to ride across that great continent of yours. Unfortunately I'm doing it on a budget.
I've managed to track down something that will suit my purposes...
Current Inventory/Pre-Owned Inventory from Ride West BMW Motorcycles
the first item on the page (hopefully) a 1996 Triumph Speed Triple 955i. Carby model
Feast on its classic beauty!
I am asking for help in terms of inspection, purchase, and registration. I'll be arriving on March the 14th. Been in contact with the dealer already and they've sent me a few high-detail photos of it. I'm hoping to have the plates and everything done by the time I arrive state-side. But the most important thing is to ascertain whether the motorcycle is in good shape for the long trip ahead.
If anyone is willing to give me a hand I'd greatly appreciate it... buying a motorcycle overseas is tough.
