Factory Visitors Experience

Last Thursday, 28th Dec. 2017, I went to the Triumph Factory Visitors Experience thing in Hinckley.
I was in UK visiting friends and family during the festive season.

All I can say is; I recommend this to anyone who is passing through the UK midlands, as it represents a lot of Englands most important & proud motorcycle heritage. I had a great time there; accompanied by my best mate. An unforgettable day indeed.

I took about 85 pics or so, so I'll be sorting out the pick of the crop in the coming days; and then post them here in this thread, for those of you who may live too far away to go there.

So, I'll be back...

WOW! WOW! Can't wait to see the pics! Good on you, mate. Wish I could make it there but not likely.

Bring it on...

I'm planning on going in the Spring so I'll look forward to seein your pics.


One thing I didn't consider until talking to my bike dealer about it, is that it's better to go on a weekday rather than a weekend so you can actually see the production line running. Apparently it's just video screens at the weekend.

There seems to be a problem dragging and dropping pictures in the upload box below.
They're smaller than 2MB... anyone know if there's an issue?

cheers

Well it seems I can't upload my pictures here anymore.
I reduced the size; to even under 1MB but the drag & drop box won't have them.
Sorry about this!

Thanks mate, for some reason, I had to crop them a tiny bit and then reduce the size!

Cheers!
