    I love those WW2 German Bikes ( clearly Triumph liberated the swinging arm tele fork alternator as reparations)

    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    Yes, yes I know it's Wikipedia and it's probably bollocks written by some rando' Ducatista but I have heard similar things before



    It happened when Ducati was owned by Cagiva and the Castiglioni family. It would also explain my MV Augusta built 300ish F4 1000 Senna's

    Love that front guard 1959 to 196?. Gotta admit though, I didn't notice that when I was watching the movie...

    Putting my Triumph anorak on, head looks like a 60's one, front guard is off some tourer,pre 57 front brake and the twin down tubes are 60 onwards.

    I think he was not trying to escape to Switzerland but a portal to 1954 Meriden as thats when the swinging arm came out.

    Watch Steve being beaten by a VW Beetle in Bullit.

    It's because Ducatis are so sexy that people want their name on them.
    Maybe I could arrange a special limited edition NZ version of the Scrambler - the Jacinda model. It will be red of course and have a really large gleaming headlight. It will also claim to be able to 'self fix' any issues it has during ownership - after a working group has assessed it for six months.

    TBF there was a German Triumph motorbike company

    plus the BSA bantam was a copy of a prewar DKW


    From memory all the guards spoke english in the movie as well

    Although we can not claim to being the biggest and brightest motorcycle shop in New Zealand...
    I believe the bit about not being the brightest. Is a bike capable of self-harming? We need an intervention.
    The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight underpants.
