Triumph Rocket fun with Harley Nightster
On my way to work recently when a kid on a nice looking Harley Nightster (I
think) comes along... Had some fun, I'd just put some new highway pegs on
my Rocket and they weren't 100% secure so didn't want to go too nuts!
This is also my first real go at using Final Cut Pro...not too bad an
effort even if I do say so myself!
The music I found on YouTube, by Downpitched ... sorry for no other audio,
mic wasn't yet setup... hope you enjoy though!

TRIUMPH ROCKET III - Viral Advertising Campaign
I recently stumbled across this fantastic advert for the Triumph Rocket
III. Apparently its a real viral advertisement commissioned by Triumph back
in 2007. I cant believe I had never seen it. Most amusing, in the style of
the old Hitchikers Guide and just, well, Bloody Good:
"Ever since the dawn of time Triumph have been producing large powerful
motorbikes in their Hinckley factory near Leicester. With over 900 years of
motorbike building prowess behind them Triumph have created two wheeled
Including their latest invention the Rocket III. But how is this, the
world's largest motorbike made? Much like its performance, construction of
the Rocket III turns traditional motorbike assembly on its head. Thus the
first part of the bike to be added is its center of gravity. The tiny items
are made by hand in a hermetically sealed chamber where they are then
pressurized; the engine itself is created next door. When creating the most
powerful motorbike known to man the key is to use a motorbike engine not
previously known to man. Engines this large cannot simply be built and
instead are grown from embryo engines germinated in a nutrient rich sludge
medium, injected with steroids and then kept in this bank of cupboards near
the photocopiers to grow.
When they have reached adolescence the frame is attached and over 200 kilos
of power are added. Its a delicate process too little and the bike will
feel sluggish too much and it could explode.
The wheels can now be bolted on and its sent into a special room where all
the complicated bits are put on by men who read magazines about maths
argument juice is added from the argument lobe of the female brain allowing
the finished bike to change direction in an instant, improving handling,
the same technology is used in modern fighter planes fun doesnt get into
the bike by accident in this sound proofed area assembly workers play
compilation tapes and jokes to the bike while it watches classic episodes
of TV comedy shows from the late 70s up to the present day.
Fun is absorbed by osmosis and levels are monitored when full the bike is
painted and baked.
The whole bike is chamoised with Yaks butter and only when the bikes
resident gurning fool can see himself reflected as a thing of beauty is the
bike released for testing.
(Testing is accompanied by banjo music for safety purposes)
the tests themselves look to asses maneuverability and performance in real
Here we see; an emergency stop for someone whos dropped their badger in the
road, practicing control in the advent of hitting a lard spill, and a
safety procedure for getting home if your front wheel falls off.
Occasionally test riders try to slip in a few hooligan antics but these are
generally frowned upon.
All these techniques must be carried out without spilling the riders tea to
ensure the rocket 3s legendary ease of handling and comfort remains intact.
Testing passed; the bikes are finished and are finally equipped with their
riders who come off independent production lines throughout the world. All
keen to enjoy the thrills the rocket 3 has to offer.
... and the satisfied triumph workers head home after another hard day
building the rocket three."
