    Spot the word 'Triumph' competition

    I'm not giving out any prizes here, just interested in hearing from you guys, if you can spot any more than me. :002:

    This all came about today whilst working on my bike, an older gentleman passing by automatically assumed that I were working on a BMW. :233: I still think he left in full disbelief that it were actually a Triumph, next time I'll be pointing to any one of the 22 areas on the bike that actually state it.

    My bike is an SE and it looks like the previous owner ticked all the options, I don't know if he stuck say an extra 'Triumph' sticker on the top box lid for example but at least 20 of them are clearly factory/standard fitment.
    It really is a puzzle, they are obviously not shy so why didn't they put a large 'Triumph' decal on each side of the fairing panels. :187:

    1. on plastic cowling behind the front screen
    2. on the corner of the screen, left hand side
    3. on sat nav mounting stem
    4. left hand brake caliper
    5. right hand brake caliper
    6. within the speedo
    7. within the rev counter
    8. on the clutch reservoir lid
    9. on the front brake reservoir lid
    10. on the fuel cap
    11. on the tank area, between the lower two tank bag mounting holes
    12. fabric label on riders heated seat
    13. fabric label on pillions heated seat
    14. rear mudflap
    15. bottom of rear number plate (dealers name)
    16. on top box rack
    17. on top box lid
    18. on top box lid (transparent rubber type one)
    19. pillion back rest
    20. left hand pannier
    21. right hand pannier
    22. crank case cover, plastic one right hand side

    Here are a couple more:

    Tankbag lid
    Front mud guard extension
    Ignition key

    It is not on the GPS mount if you have a Cirrus/XM antenna (North America).

    The area between the rear tankbag mounting points on the tank cover is slick as a baby's butt. No logo there. Picture?

    Every day is a Saturday when you're retired!

    Ah yes, I do have the tankbag myself but it wasn't on my bike at the time or the ignition key funny enough, don't have the front mud guard extension. Will try to add a picture tomorrow. :002:

    But you see they got the size wrong.

    I says Triumph

    It should say Triumph
    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.

    I'm guessing that this placed sticker isn't standard fitment??

    Middle of the headlight clear lens - just below the side light.  :017:
