I think you will find that they get more expensive! Most parts will be imported. And now with a delightfull tarriff attached and a weak pound! All hail king Farrage!
If you choose not to decide, then you have still made a decision!

But it will happen in a few years. Till then...  :082: And, even then, Triumph will have to move to an EU country, at least the parts store, if they want to be competitive in the EU market. Otherwise, its prices will be unable to fight against other EU bike manufacturers...

Hey Lopez! Forgot to ask, have you got a spare room! Looking for somewhere to stay for the next 20 years. I'm sure if I grow a beard that I will get through border control with my dogs pet passport and I can pay you in Scottish pound notes (As rare as hens teeth). Go on!

Mmmmm...  :084: Let me think... I know Scotland very well. In fact, even my first marriage's honey moon was there. So... I think I know how scottish are. Mmmmm.  :062: What about forgetting those pounds and talk about whiskey?

It looks like leaving the EU is already likely to create jobs in the construction industry. It sounds as if Hadrians Wall is going to have to be rebuilt.  :015:

My son in law has been arguing vehemently that we should leave the EU. Well to be fair, not arguing because he didn't actually know the arguments.

Today he's moaning that his holiday in Crete is going to cost him a whole packet more because of the exchange rate, plus he may end up having to pay a surcharge.

Serves him right for reading the Daily Mail.

Well... Google says that this morning, searches like "What happen if we leave the EU?" from UK users are increased by 250%.

To me, that seems that not everybody was thinking properly before voting...

Those would be searches  by those who voted to remain in the EU.
Don't worry about things you can't change.
