Rolling down the highway, grooving to the beat of a parallel twin, the furthest thought from my mind is whether any of my steeds have come down a Thai production line.
The Thai connection has been common knowledge in the Triumph bike world for several years now, which some people seem to have a problem coming to terms with. That's globalization.
As you can see, that factor was no deterrent to my purchases...
Like the rest of the good folk on this thread enjoying their modern classics, you should do the same and forget about the site of production. It's a 100% privately-owned British company - an icon.
