Goo, I see we have exactly the same taste in Ducatis!

And as far as Thailand goes: I spent a little time there during the late unpleasantness in Southeast Asia, and for myself, I was much impressed with the quality of Thai workmanship and with their work ethic. Not to mention the graciousness of the people.

I don't know if my T100 was assembled there or not, but no worries. I kind of like the idea of my beautiful machine coming from England by way of Thailand.

Just think of it as recreating the Empire On Which The Sun Never Sets.

I too got caught paying "shipping fromEngland" but it seems Triumph UK and US are both happy with that lie.

Nice post Jeff. There are people all over this globe dedicated to their jobs and capable of building quality stuff.
