    Triumph is not on the ticket for the Progressive show in Cleveland, however one local dealer plans a Triumph booth of their own, IF they have sufficient new product by then.
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    Yes I can confirm Triumph isn't exhibiting.  Everyone else is there.  Should we be worried about their financial viability?   :187:

    I don't think so. Triumph has never attended all the shows, so its not unusual to not see them from time to time. I think that's one of the main problems with the TTSE's lack of notoriety.

    When I asked the owner of the dealer that displayed Triumph at the Long Beach show, he said that Triumph puts on local events across the country, and they figure that they get more bang for the buck doing that instead of the big shows.  Maybe they do, maybe they don't, who knows?

    The lack of press for the TTSE is sad.  I have had my bike since March and bike people still ask me "What is that?  I have never heard of it." all the time. *sigh*
