Triumph X-75 Hurricane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



The only thing I could find worth passing along that came from a Google search of "motorcycle AND hurricane".

The office is closed. Schools are closed. It's raining. What else is there to do?

Income Down, York Revamp Affects Harley 3Q - Motorcycle USA:

I copied the link to a New York Times article back in early 2010 (the link is dead now) that claimed Harley had suffered its first loss in 16 years. I titled that one as the beginning of the apocalypse.

Interesting Motorcycle Facts

Interesting Motorcycle Facts:

"The Fonz (aka Henry Winkler) couldn't actually ride a motorcycle. Steve McQueen's motorcycle from the scene at the end of the movie "The Great Escape" (1963), was the same motorcycle that The Fonz rode on in "Happy Days" (1974). When he "rode" the motorcycle in the show, it was actually mounted on a piece of wood on wheels. For the action shots during the show, they would simply wheel the motorcycle to give the effect that he was riding it. The reason Henry Winkler wasn't able to ride the notorious Harley Davidson in the show was because of poor co-ordination which is a symptom from his dyslexia."

Anybody going? I went once in October about 10 years ago. Much more sedate (in a good way) than the spring get together. Still lots of fun.
