Is This The Funniest Motorcycle’ Film Ever?by Harry Fisher, on
Motorcycle companies tend to take themselves very seriously and don’t let frivolity get in the way of the important business of making and selling bikes. This particular video is a few years old so you’ve probably already seen it, but it’s too good not to watch again.
How The Triumph Rocket 3 Is Made
Sometimes the world is just too serious: we all need a good laugh every now and then. Normally, the last place we expect to come across it is from a motorcycle manufacturer but, back in 2009, Triumph in the UK bucked this trend and brought us an educational video telling us how the Rocket 3 motorcycle was built.
Everything about it is ridiculous, from the statement that Triumph has been building bikes for over 900 years or growing the engines from an embryo to wiring the chassis to a woman’s brain so that it will change direction in an instant.
It’s a film worthy of Monty Python and, no doubt, a lot of episodes of that show were watched before they made this one!
It’s short but then the best things often are and don’t let any woman tell you different!
