    I’ve seen that movie. Into the Unknown.
    I think it was on stan.



    I don’t have a high bars for movies.
    Mates on trips riding motorbikes and I’ll watch.
    A longer clip of it is here.

    You be careful out there in the woods, I don’t want to read in the Dayboro Times about a manbun who was out riding his scrambler in the forrest and got his scarf caught in the chain

    A type of hairdo can ride a bike?
    And a scarf?
    Interesting!

    Not a great idea to twist the air sensor leads to take them off and fit them again. Just loosen, remove the header pipe from the engine, and then turn the header to undo it from the sensor. Refit the same way.
    And if he cut the other side of the weld then it would only require one cut and expose the spot weld.

    Not sure why the bike was transported there in a van. Surely with a bike like that you ride there, especially when it is in town! Anyway, the bike looks like a lot of fun.

    I'm very seriously considering buying one. Test rode it before the lockdown and loved it.

    Looks like it isn't registered, one of Triumph's own bikes. Same rider who raced one in the desert race last year for Triumph.

    I have one although I chose an XC rather than an XE. I had a Bonnie T120 and loved the motor but the bike felt small so I'm very happy with the bigger Scrambler.

    Fitted this today, runs smooth on the bitumen so far while scrubbing it in a bit.

    Ernie Vigil is a professional rider (movie stunts and the like) who has made a bit of a name for himself punting the big Triumph's around down in Baja at various races...

    Ernie rode on the ICON Raiden team back in 2015... that competed a pair of race prepped Triumph Tiger 800XC's in the NORRA Mexican 1000... teamed up with Chicago Triumph/Ducati dealer Johnny Scheff and two of my old Baja riding buddies - Mark Vanscourt and Joe Bolton.

    "The Sandlot" video is pretty typical of the hipster targeted marketing of these type of motorcycles over the last few years... if doing stand up slides and skids around state park picnic tables is what sells bikes these days... then getting a movie stuntman to twist the throttle for the camera's is what it takes I s'pose...? :dunno :1drink

    And he looks mighty comfy on it!! Doesn't break the speed limit, just doesn't slow down for corners...
