Not Just the Bike
I suppose this is a question to all the veteran/experienced travellers. Based on your misshaps out there which manufacturer gives the best parts back up.
I am asking as I am in Montenegro and had a small spill on my bike. Parts to get it back on the road have so far taken 3 weeks which has taken me by surprise a bit as I suppose I think of Montenegro as still in Europe.
Next year or early 2009 I plan to travel further afield and my thought are which bike has the best supplier reputation for supplying spares. I apprectiate the trick is not to have an accident but with the best will in the world these things happen.
I have noticed that in my travels around Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania there are BMW dealers. Yes they are selling cars but still a point of contact. Is this the reason most of the bikes I have seen down here are 1150 and 1200gs.
I forgot to mention the bike I have is a Triumph Sprint ST.
