    Triumph certainly have a good marketing team.  I'll bet the 325 in the States go quickly.  I've already sent a note to my brother asking about pricing.

    In France the ACE 2015 Special Edition wil go for  10490 i.e. just 500 above the regular Thruxton

    Thanks for that Didier. You respond faster than my brother.   I think he checks his email about once a year.

    Oh he is getting old and lazy.  Even though he is one of the best mechanics I know he no longer bothers.  He lets his tech service his own bike.  Last time I saw him get his hands dirty was when he helped me with an emergency roadside repair on my ST

    Visited my brothers' shop in Canandaigua New York.  He has one on the showroom floor.  Absolutely beautiful. Wish I had the $$$ for it.
