I wasn’t aware there was logo hate. I guess the grass is always greener...
It's been mentioned a few times when the new model was revealed, including whether or not it was removable (it isn't):

Yup! I was one of the haters.
I never found it as classy as most Triumphs always were (bragging about the size of your engine sounds a bit like a pee contest to me ;-).

At least they restored the good old Triumph logo!

The problem could be the higher concentration of salt in the air where you live.      I bought a used bike that I discovered had come from one of the Carolina states.    That bike looked pristine from a distance, but up close there were small pits in the metal and rust here & there.

I live 1 kilometre from the sea and only clean the bike never put waxes or winter protection on and ride all year due to not having salt thrown over the roads and I have no rust at all. The only time the sea is going to rust your bike is if you try to use it as a jet ski!  :038:

Climates vary a great deal from one place to another. Here in greater Vancouver, I am unaware of any corrosion issues. However, my friend who lives an hour and a ferry ride up the coast tells me that aluminum rain gutters on houses in his neighborhood rot out in about 10 years because of the salt that blows ashore during winter storms.
