Next year Triumph is going to improve greatly on its water-based paint, required on that side of the pond. They are going to use finger paints, so everyone can do their own custom improvements. Actually, the paint on the SE is pretty good. Regulations on VOCs are really crimping the paint jobs from the factory. I have seen blemishes in paint in new bikes and it spoils otherwise what is a very good motorcycle. The word disheartening comes to mind. Hope Triumph figures out a way to improve on their paint jobs.
