Was there ever any 'official' word on where all the SMQ bikes went throughout the world?
Pat, why are you trolling? I notice you've got your ride listed as a Thai Triumph and you've been bitching about it in other threads. Why come here and troll the SMcQ owners? You seem to have a chip on your shoulder about the fact that Triumph build bikes in the Far East. If it bothers you that much, flog your T100 and buy something else. Maybe a nice all-American Harley would suit you
P.S. Your sig is bollocks - your bike was assembled in Chonburi. Nowhere does it say Made in Hinckley.
Here is your warning - This is a global community not an American or British Community. Where the Bonneville is assembled is completely irrelevant and you do not speak on behalf of a long dead actor or his estate.
If you don't like the McQueen edition Bonneville you are free to say so. If it bugs you as much as it seems you are free to contact the McQueen Estate who authorized Triumph to build it, otherwise can it or I'll ban it.
Where are Triumph’s factories based?
Triumph has five world class factories around the world, all 100% owned by our company. Two of these factories are based in Hinckley in the UK, the other three are in Chonburi, Thailand.
The bike Never saw the UK, nor did the parts - my bitch is that they are sold in the US under false pretenses. I even paid "Shipping from England" according to the dealer. All the publicity material says "Hinckley" as does the label off the bike and the manual. The ads just have a Union Jack with "since 1902". I have met many riders now and all but one thought their bike had come from England - just need a little honesty and ethics. Sorry if that is out of fashion. My underpants say "Made in China" - the label on the bike should say "Made in Thailand". As the CEO of Triumph USA told me on the phone - he has no legal obligation to disclose the country of manufacture. Another way of saying "I have a loophole and I am going to exploit it"
Bike is great - love it - the dealer is **** with no ethics, Colorado Euro, as is the importer and the UK company as they will not trade honestly - factory No4 coming online in Chonburi as we speak. Why do they hide it? They must feel guilty about it.
Royal Enfield - proudly made in India!
