    Triumph
    Ok, I've done 7k miles with my XC now and as all who know me can vouch I'm pretty damned hard on the bike so may incur uncommon faults! The fault I'm highlighting here is a problem with the gear indicator/neutral light. At 1500 miles mine had an issue with the gear indicator which ended with...
