Its got to be the motorcycle, what else could it be?

Someone need to tell him to stop huffing the cologne, and next time use a Scrambler not a Bonnie.

Maybe he whips the cologne out, takes a swig, heroically shoves the Bonnie over the last 10 boulders, and continues on his way through the trackless jungle with knife in teeth etc.

Honestly though, I like Ewan. He goes out into the world and does real things, like ride motorcycles. He is not like the F'd up movie stars we have here in the states...
Aw c'mon, what about Tom Cruise in Top Gun.

Tom's not cuckoo at all.......
I dont mind Ewen either, he seems fairly down to earth,
If someone offered me a Triumph and a trip to Brazil, and said "say this stuff smells good" I'd be there right away.

You all would too.

How about this one? It's from a this page. I remember seeing him chasing some tricycle-riding German talk show host around on a Scram a while back (don't ask).

I have nothing against Ewan or Charlie either, I like their no bullshit approach to motorcycling, they do it rather than just talk about it.

Tom Cruise is a different story.

Lascarcapac.... can we have some moving images next please!

Word. This is my current background on my work computer AND my home computer. I love this shot. Thanks for saving me...seeing Tom Cruise on the Scrambler was making me second guess my decision to buy one.

I'm all right in the head now.

Scrambler Baffelectomy?

I have read a lot of posts on doing a baffelectomy on bikes with low pipes, but was wondering if anyone ever did one on a Scrambler? I checked in the Triumph Rat site, but couldn't locate anything.

Any info would be appreciated - thanks!

Great pic..

How and why did you get a green sticker for the Scrambler?

I thought California would not issue them for plated bikes, as the plate voided the need for a green sticker???

Bafflectomy experimental surgery

Mista Vern, I can't help you with your technical issue. However, if and when you do experiment, I will back you up with my OEM pipes. They are getting dusty in my garage, because I have the TORS. So, be brave and start surgery. You can have mine for the cost of shipping if you kill the patient.

Cheers to you, cheapskate.

By doG, that is the friendliest gesture yet! I bow to the good gentleman from the Tar Heel state. May your chain never slacken and your tires never wear.

I will PM you when I take this project on - thanks again!

I did a search on the RAT forum with "Scrambler Bafflectomy" and got a few hits. I didn't read through them all, but there should be some info. there. Some of it is older, with big red X's where there are supposed to be pics. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
