After a jolly 2k+ jaunt into France, Germany and erm Switzerland by mistake - i've returned to find the panniers have rubbed paintwork on the rear unit down to the white base Has anyone tried the touch up pens available from Triumph? Or should i just keep an eye out on Fleabay? BTW how good are the French at at moving over?! They almost drive into the fields, winding down windows egging you on...it'd be rude not to :twisted: Fwarp! The South German roads were fantastic! I dropped in after meeting a biker couple who passed on 'biker road maps' to me. Fella was on an MV Agusta F4 single seat - his partner was on a VFR fully loaded with All the luggage!
