Someone recently posted that they don't like buy t-shirts and other apparel that serves as free advertising for someone elses product. I personally don't have a problem with wearing a Triumph T-shirt, but I draw the line at getting their name or logo tatooed on my body. Actually, I draw the line far before that.

Makes me wonder how many backwood rednecks have Ford or Chevy tatooed somewhere on their butt. Oh god, I think I'm gonna be sick. :

If and when Tiger Woods gets a tat, I'll start thinking about it...
Most golfers will do anything (except practice) to "buy" a better game.

Thanks Woody. The picture is [email protected] In person, it's really well done. The edging around the Triumph logo is gold to match my '79 T140D. Been going to the same guy for years. He's done every tattoo I have.

Who is that guy, McQueen? I am sure I revealed my pop culture ignorance with the question. But on tattoos, if I was not as old as I am and previously "inked", I'd consider a nice Triumph tattoo. I just love the logo. Maybe I'll have my wife get one.

Arrow Idea!

Dave C - see the tattoo I was talking about from the girl I dated back in the day! Maybe that would be a good one?
