As a long time friend of Mickey Cohen, National Service Manager for Triumph, i put break in miles on press bikes. For over 10 years now I have been riding for him, and have ridden over 20 new bikes this year@ 500-1500 miles each. I put over 500 miles on Rider cover bike of Street Twin, and can tell if the editors really ride the bikes because I have. Triumph quality is very high, I ride them hard, and currently have a 2017 T100 Black in my garage after putting 750 miles on a Speed Triple R last week. I have done break in miles for celebrity bikes, and in the movie SALT! although Angelina rides,you are hearing me. Made over 100 passes at over 100 mph for that one! Last year i put 350 miles in a week on a Rocket 3 with a Carpenter head, 220 natural aspirated horsepower on the dyno. Stupid fast is what one magazine called it! Contact me for honest opinion on Triumphs, I ride them all, and have owned over 18 myself. Current touring bike is a 2015 Tiger 800 with Explorer bags. My old 2006 Tiger 955 is still ridden with over 110k. Ride safe and Merry Christmas!
