Okay this has the distinct feeling of turning into handbags at five paces here... And Ladies it's seriously not worth it. I have a Twat Suit and although I don't wear it much I get the joke and can laugh at myself. If we can't poke a little fun at each other without people getting pissy then what is the point of any of this anyhow? Laugh at the joke or ignore it then move on.

The biggest question is whether it's still a "Twat Suit" if I wear it on my WR250 when riding through the desert or only on the GS in front of Starbucks ...

And the other thing is: I like Starbucks on trips. They normally have cleaner restrooms and better coffee than gas stations.

I'd say it's a Twat Suit if you wear it more as a fashion accessory then a necessity. Definitely a Twat Suit if it's like 90% of the GS's that never have actually seen dirt or been drop in 6 inch deep mud or sand.

Question is, do your shoes match your tank bag?

THANK YOU SIR!!

Jesus H Christ guys ... sorry I ever brought it up! LETS MOVE ON!

(BTW, the suits in question were usually the fancy BMW suits only. Aerostich never came into it as it's only more recently anyone in the UK has even ever heard of an Aerostich suit (which is WAY better than any BMW suit ever made).

If you guys ever get out of your cubicles and actually read the Brit mags ... you'd pick up a lot of "off color" slang. (some writing is quite funny)

In Brit mags terms such as twat, cunt and bollocks are commonly used ... and not edited out. Some even slip in a "fuck" now and then. (Fast Bikes). MS&L are more "pipe and slippers" (another Brit term referring to BMW riders or older riders), BIKE, not unless Dan Walsh is doing a piece.

Who wants to do some research?? Come on, it'll be fun! The project is to find out how much damage the Triumph factories got from the recent floods. If you speak/read Thai, this would help. A very good report I heard while in Mexico recently claimed over 50 large international manfacturers are located in the flooded areas. Funny, not of word of this sort of international news on US TV anywhere I've found. Online will have to do. Companies like Honda and Toyota are serious invested in Thailand .... as is Triumph with two plants.

So whats the story? Early reports claimed many factories were six feet under water. So, was Triumph hit? Anyone?

twat suits, slippers, floods what else.....

The only thing I know when I inquired for a testride next year my dealer told me they already have several customer orders for the 1200 so the first couple of bikes will not be demo's as they are all sold.

Right On! MUCH better Coffee ... I like them too. Last Winter I stopped in a Starbuck's coming down out of the Sierra after riding snowy roads and hairball conditions. I was beat. Took a nice nap, cleaned up and stripped off clothes in the CLEAN restroom ... and enjoyed a nice Vente Mocha. From there rode the final 220 home without a break! Thank you Starbucks!

We have seen a bot of this in Oz but nothing specific about what factories were hit.
Just night after night of the evolving disaster. Probably because the news people think we can relate due to parts of Oz the size of France being underwater recently and more coming by the look of it.

Grifter, you must not be in the computer biz. Lots of hard drive manufactures were in the flood zone, people were hoarding drives for a while there. Lots of coverage here in the US on that aspect at least.



Triumph uses the Amata Nakorn Industrial Estate (source: http://www.bccthai.com/BCCT/asp/corp....asp?CorpID=46)

Amata Nakorn has not been hit by flooding (Source: http://www.bangkokpost.com/business/...-flood-lessons)

Workers are moving to Amata Nakorn from other flooded areas (Source: http://www.bangkokpost.com/learning/...stern-seaboard)

So not flooded, but could give new meaning to the bike made on hangover Monday...

Excellent info Steve, thanks! You're correct ... I can barely operate a computer ... but I did learn to type in 7th grade!

This is great news for Triumph! Means production will likely be (more or less) on time for the new Tiger Explorer.

I was amazed the Fukushima nuclear disaster did not take out more MC parts suppliers Triumph are dependent on but looks like all Triumphs are in the show rooms world wide.

So, how would one appropriately dress while riding the Tiger 1200?

Seems the twat suit is out - this high-point of fashion having been taken over by the "high rent district" BMW folks.

Perhaps a Mackintosh with a mangina flap? Covered by a waterproof YKK zipper, of course...
