Metric Pirates or Enthusiasts ?

You know, I found myself making a great deal of fun of HD owners because the HD apparel spreads like a rash. Clothes, underware, boots, glasses, do rag, stickers on personal cages... you know the epidemic.

SOB if it isn't happening to me with Triumph apparel. First it was a baseball cap and t-shirt from my buddy for Christmas. I thought, ya OK, I'll keep this low-key.

Wife just bought me some gloves with the Triumph logo for my b-day. I do admit they work very well.

Someone just posted about a Lucky Brands discount and ABD if I just didn't order another Triumph hat.

How many other guys and gals find their Triumph apparel collection expanding?

LOL, yeah. So far just two t-shirts, but found myself looking at more stuff on-line over the weekend...

No Triumph logo branded stuff yet, but it's harder and harder to avoid.

At least I finally removed all of the patches from my Ducati "historical" jacket so that I could blend in a little more on the Bonneville!

Oops! Two LucyBrand t-shirts, one LuckyBrand long-sleeved shirt, and one ball cap. Doesn't make me a bad person, though.

I also have a couple of Suzuki shirts as well.

I confess, three tee shirts and a ball cap. I've been looking for a Triumph branded leather jacket, but subdued, subtle.

The wife has a beautiful Triumph leather jacket, and she rides a Honda Shadow. She just loves the jacket and I can't say I blame here.

I've got a Triumph wall clock. It's pretty cool. That's about it. I don't have any Triumph brand clothing.

Before he did it, I'd have said it couldn't be done.

I got a Triumph tee that my wife got me. I rarely wear it. It's a tad to tight. I bought my dog a Harley dog collar.
