I'm so torn about the de-badge option... I love the clean, no BS look.

Heck, I don't even wear t-shirts with logos cuz I hate badges ...

BUT I also love the comments from old timers when they see that Triumph name on my ride, and their eyes light up and they just have say something.

Almost every day I get elderly gents come up to me in parking lots with stories about a Triumph they had as a kid, or in the war, and they are just in awe at the Thunderbird.

I'd hate to remove a logo and rob them of that joy ... and miss sharing it with them.

And to tell the truth, it kinda makes me proud to ride that kind of history.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?
