Just my penny's worth, when I rode my Thruxton R out and about (my first ever Triumph) the non-biking men & women in the street, in the parking lots, would look at it through rose-tinted glasses, all misty eyed, and utter something about the 'good old days' or 'I remember when...'. The biking fraternity may, or may not, have been aware where it was made but they still admired it. That says a lot about the current range of vertical twins that Triumph make and the heritage that comes with the Triumph brand. Of course we all know that Norton is and always was superior, but I get less attention from the general public, mostly from inquisitive bikers.
