I like it too. Very 'British' looking.

Matt finish paint is all fine as long as you don't have to patch it, polish it, or touch it up. The sheen is impossible to match. But it has a nice look to it. For the little bit of painted finish on these bikes it's just easier to keep up a gloss finish.

I'm still toying with trying to match the 'venom yellow' that comes on the '12 roadie. Colorite doesn't list it so Triumph must not have licensed it or authorized them to match it. Could probably get a custom mix really close, but would need a swatch/sample to give to the mixer.
