Kindly Euro cousins really went the extra mile
Guy: right to retire?
Having just returned from a 2600-mile trip to Europe on my 1997 Triumph Thunderbird 900, I was interested to read the piece about the fellowship of bikers in last week’s MCN.
The bike developed an electrical fault in Germany which caused the engine to cut out. Two people stopped to help, the first on a scooter and the second in a car. One of them took me back to his house, made sure I got a drink (it was 30°C), phoned a few friends and discovered there was a Triumph dealer about 20 miles away.
The mechanic at SBF Triumph in Eningen kept the shop open until I got there, found a replacement sensor and had me back on the road the next morning. He even offered me a lift to a hotel, though the bike got me there. Now that’s service! Dave King
