Return of the Black

6 weeks and 1 day since my argy bargy with a Toyota Hilux and today by BB returned.
Have to say, the guys at Khon Kaen Triumph in Thailand have done a fantastic job. The Bike looks like new and whoever stripped it down for the frame to be re-sprayed and then re-built it has excelled. It rides better than before ( itís only 6 months old). The gear changes are much smoother and the change from the UK to US pipes combined with the Motone X-Pipe had me smiling for the 200Km ride back home. I knew there would be a difference but compared to the UK spec itís amazing. Highly recommend this combination. Deep bass sound and loud. IMHO, suits the bike perfectly.

Additionally the dealership had some new goodies in ( probably been available in UK, EU, and USA for a while but not here.
So, that was another £300 down the swanny. The wife is unimpressed but Iím a happy chap.

Apologies for multiple picture posts but for some reason I can only upload one pic at a time.

Thank you. Iím really pleased with the jacket. Prices here are finally reflecting the strong baht against the £ so was quite reasonably priced for a change.
As much as I like leather itís just not practical here with the high temps. This jacket is pretty lightweight and with the liner removed was comfortable in 38 degrees for the journey home.
What I also noticed was that the sizing seems to have improved (for my size and shape at least).
Previous Triumph jackets Iíve tried have always been to long in the arm but this one is perfect and compared to my general sizing for jackets seems to be a genuine Medium.
Def worth a look if you like Mesh.
