Thank you Mr Bloor

For saving our favourite British motorcycle marque from oblivion.
For being the sole survivor of the once thriving British Bike industry.
For 20 years of magnificent machines, more than worthy of the great name they carry on their tanks.
Here's to 20 years more (at least)
Long may you continue.
Triumphs Forever!

Yes, thank you for building a bike for me to tour on.
I could of been doing this on a Honda, or worse, a Hog, it would be terrible, I would of had to wear chaps.
Even worse, I could of done it on a vintage Trumpet, and spent this year riding from mechanic to mechanic around the states, 50k miles, that is 2 engine rebuilds...

It's hard to imagine the gap in the modern motorcycle market if Triumph wasn't filling the Brit Bike niche. We'd all have to buy Royal Enfields!

Funny scratch, I was thinking just the other day about where we'd all be right now if not for Mr Bloor and his insight (and abundant $).

I probably would have continued to look for an older Ducati and been happy with the outcome but I can say that the Triumph marque has changed my life in a very positive way <- not wanting to sound trite.

Cheers, Mr. Bloor. If not for the new Triumphs, I'd probably have a Ducati that ran or more Guzzis.

Good job Bloor, keep up the good work. Triumph has a great lineup of bikes and I'll probably always have one in the garage. Was talking to a diehard BMW guy last night that just bought an Explorer, he seems real happy with his new triple. I warned him it's gonna get in his blood. Hopefully we won't have too many BM guys joining the ranks, ruining the Rat Raids babbling on about Starbucks while smoking pipes and wearing elbow patched blazers.

Thank you Mr Bloor, for stumping up the millions and millions of pounds for R&D of the New Bonneville. So that when I got my hands on It, I could rip it to pieces and put all the bits i wanted to put on it.
