We had two BMW's, my wife's R1200R, and my S1000R. I traded-in my S1000R on the Triumph.

With 60 miles on the Thruxton, it's leaking engine oil. I'm trailering it in to the dealership tomorrow morning, hopefully it's a simple warranty fix and the bike won't be unrideable for weeks.

Oh no!  I guess it really is a retro bike.  Wish you luck that it's a quick and simple fix.

I didn't even realize you had an S1000R... hard to keep up with you!  :D

I learned (from a Triumph forum) that the leak was not uncommon on new T120 Triumph Bonneville engines, but all it is was a poorly thread-sealed, hex-head oil plug on the lower part of the engine case, both sides. The no-cost remedy was for the mechanic to pull the two oil plugs and do a better job of thread-sealing them than the factory did, then screw them back in, probably took them all of thirty minutes.

So, it's back on the road again, baby-ing in those all-important early break-in miles.
