The most important thing to say to a prospective owner is "Know what you want!"
This is very easy to ride and very torquey in just the same way as my old T tiger is Its very true to its heritage and feels like an old Trumpet in spite of if its 3 cylinder water cooled lump.
Mine is slightly degeared to increase the torque at the sacrifice of a lower top speed, but this is not a bad price to pay for me as i love blatting aroundcountry lanes.
The bike itself is well engineered in terms of... (read more)

The best reliable motorcycle. I had several bikes and I am a rider since 43 years, but this is the bike to dance on. Just like horseriding. (read more)

I bought my first Triumph Legend TT in 1999, I was after a 400 or 500 cc engined bike to do the commute from Kent into London. I walked into Metropolis Motorcycles in Vauxhall and they had the Legend mounted on the wall - it was love at first sight even at double the engine capacity (and fuel consumption). Sadly I wrote that bike off after three months in an accident. I replaced it and I can honestly say I have not looked back. Together we have 27,000 miles of hardcore commute on the clock...

I bought a Triumph Legend TT from ebay 3 years ago. it was crashed, clocked and bodged back together by some mullet near brighton. got it for a steal though and thought i could fix it up myself so i went ahead... shame on me...
seemed like it was nothing major to fix, fork seals, tires, chain and sprockets, ignitor coils and a few other bits and bobs... all minor and easy as pie..
stupid silly me.....
turns out that triumph will milk their customers to the bone when it comes to spares, i paid... (read more)

I loved this bike from the first time I saw it, riding it is just so much fun, you can cruise along at a nice pace or you can kick it down a gear, get the revs up and just have a blast on curvey roads keeping up with much faster sport bikes. The fact that I would have to get rid of the legend TT if I want to buy a new motorcycle is the only reason I haven 't bought anything new yet! (read more)

The best bike I have ever ridden. Comfortable, fast, reliable, and smart.
Fuel is good for a large engine tank is a descent size so you can cruse for large distances between refills. If you are after a curser rather than a sports bike you can't go wrong
A really good bike for the price. (read more)

Buy one if you are a commuter or tourer but not if you are after a bike for blasting about at high speeds. I bought my Legend 2nd hand from a fairly weathered bloke who did only about 20 miles a year on it. I was a speed thirsty hooligan who needed to adjust to a more relaxed sit up and beg riding position. I looked around and considered harleys and bmws but I was drawn to a TT from pictures on the internet.
It looks better than it is. I would give it 10 for retro success but it isnt as solid... (read more)

I bought this bike from a local dealer in 2004 with 4,000 on the clock, it has now done 40,000 all weather miles. Reliability has been very good, the only times the bike has let me down was when the side stand switch got drowned when overtaking a truck in torrential rain, this made the engine quit whenever it was in gear, but ten minutes with the engine running at the side of the road sorted it, and it has a tendency to flood very easily on icy mornings but I think I've got the nack sorted....

Nice looking in a traditionally Triumph way, this Legend TT is a bike that is easy to ride and does everything adequately, rather than exceptionally well in any area. I bought mine with 4000 miles on the clock from a dealer, without having ridden it or even heard it run beforehand. Big mistake, don't ever do it. The three cylinder engine won't pull your arms off when accelerating (the wind will if you go much over 70mph though) but performs spiritedly enough. I changed the front sprocket to... (read more)

If you are looking for an easy going bike that will turn a few heads and is swift enough away from the lights to be respectable then the Triumph Legend TT is for you. If however you like to travel above 60mph and impress at track days look somewhere else. OK, you can't get them new any more, replaced by the fake Bonneville, but as a good second hand buy which will provide reliable swift around town and country road transport it is a good buy.
I bought mine after a few years off bikes and it... (read more)
