Hap­pi­ness is a new Tri­umph not chain lube!

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week - ANDY CAL­TON

I only went into the shop to get some chain lube. Over an hour and £120 later I emerged with some bar­gain gloves, a bungee net, some clean­ing gear, a tinted vi­sor and info about great deals on half-a-dozen new bikes.

I for­got the chain lube. Trou­ble is, you of­ten don’t re­alise what it is you need un­til you see it. And buy­ing stuff, es­pe­cially at a ‘spe­cial’ price is of­ten just too tempt­ing. If it’s half price you’ve of­fi­cially saved your­self a for­tune.

A clever bloke with glasses and a clip­board – and a stetho­scope, prob­a­bly – worked out that, on av­er­age, hap­pi­ness in­creases by 0.1% for ev­ery pound you spend.

So, you could walk away from the Ca­r­ole Nash MCN Lon­don Mo­tor­cy­cle Show very, very happy! There will be thou­sands of things packed within the walls of EX­CEL that you never re­alised you needed (see the 40-page pull­out guide in­side this is­sue)!

And there will also be a stack of new bikes you never re­alised you could af­ford. But a free, posh cof­fee, from a knowl­edge­able and friendly sales advisor... just proved oth­er­wise.

It’s not about be­ing talked into some­thing you don’t want. It’s about be­ing ex­posed to some­thing you didn’t re­alise you could have – £100 a month for a new Street Triple? Oh, yes please!
