Triumph Open Day - Results and Pictures

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone that turned up at both showrooms today. It was a fantastic display of bikes and we really appreciate people making the effort to bring their prized Triumphs along. We used external judges as we know how everyone is passionate about their machine and if it were down to me. you would all be winners. I wish all the winners luck and we have tried our best to ensure there are some YOULES winners invited to what for any Triumph enthusiast must be the trip of a lifetime.

Fantastic day good weather and a really good atmosphere at both stores
