Motorcycles of Hollywood
The motorcycle’s celluloid history dates back to the silent era. From Edgar Dearing’s familiar role as a motorcycle cop/foil in Laurel and Hardy shorts to Gael Garcia Bernal as a road-tripping Che Guevara in The Motorcycle Dairies and beyond, screen bikes are as iconic as the characters who ride them.
2010 Parallel Twin
The 2010 Triumph Thunderbird’s wings have shape shifted into a massive parallel twin motor. Triumph’s Thunderbird is Harley-Davidson’s worst nightmare come true. If there is such a thing as a slayer of giants or, in this case, a Harley killer, then the 2010 Triumph Thunderbird is the spearhead and the first that really could matter.

Parallel Twin Cruiser
Triumph’s Thunderbird first landed on North American shores in 1946 and received rave reviews from motorcyclists for its styling, agility and speed. The Thunderbird quickly found its way into homes and movies as motorcyclists enthusiastically flocked to the roadways and the machine appeared in major motion pictures including "The Wild One" with Marlon Brando.
