That fits well with what I saw and heard during the factory visit and a conversation I had with a couple of guys who worked at factory 3 that I met on a trip in Thailand. A well written piece without the usual media hype.
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

A good and interesting article, Triumph are just trying to do what most of us want, build good reliable bikes at a reasonable price whilst making enough profit to stay in business and keep the products up to date.

The thing I remember from my factory visit wasn't the bikes but watching the poor sods working working on the production line  :icon_frown: looking at the various info on the walls about each individual and when reading and shaking my head only to turn round and them all smiling at me through gritted teeth I left both appreciating my bike and the job I had.
