Having never been to the UK or Australia or New Zealand (places where I wouldn't mind going), the U.S. Marine Corps sent me to Vietnam, Bangledesh, Okinawa, and Korea for cultural awareness. Some US folks haven't been travelled out of the US.
Yet notwithstanding the strange views that we've drawn from the media, I can tell you that I've never met a Triumph rider that doesn't feel a kindship to your country. And, my T-100 serves daily as your best ambassador, being the most solid piece of design, engineering, handling, and pleasure that a country could want.
