    The factory tours are only available during the week so most people will have to take a day off. I believe that the dealers get first dibs on dates available throughout the year. I for one would be very interested...

    I did the tour and it's a good experience overall and chance would have it that they were building 675’s during my visit but I understand this isn’t always the case.

    Tour was quite interesting and wasn’t rushed or too long with it finishing in a ‘mock showroom’ displaying various Triumph goods.
    I actually picked something to purchase but was told to order it from my dealer as they didn’t want to take customers from them.
    I'm not sure if this is still the case but a few of us mentioned that an opportunity was being missed to take some coin from us…

    I PM'd Scarlet - she works at the factory - and this is from her reply:

    'They are not currently being run.

    But I think we are looking to start them again, sometime next year.

    I'll keep a listen out & let you know (alternatively, i'd suggest asking your local dealer). They'll probably give you the same answer, but may start a list of people who want to visit.'

    So don't expect anything too soon.
