E10
MCN are reporting that Triumph have stated that all bikes made after 1990 are safe for use with the forthcoming E10 petrol. Is that true?

Aside from the vinyl on the tank bubbling and the fuel system gumming up if left for a couple of months, that's correct. As far as running the bike goes E10 shouldn't affect them, although I use super unleaded anyway.
No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

So partially true. Or sort of.
What about lines and connections etc. Will the ethanol eat them?
