Thirumph Chrome


Thirumph rust strikes again. I have an 04 Bonnie engine chromed out with Triumph optional covers. They still look like new. Thialand factorys need to be watched closely or Thriumph will be sorry they ever started using them.

On Wed. they were already rusting again! I am sure that I can find replacements that weigh half as much and look OK but the OEM ones aren't much for (chrome) durability.

On a more fun topic my high beam indicator has been "intermittent" of late. A good incentive to check out the LED "upgrade" as I see it!
