    Clearly(like I'm some kinda expert) Triumph is using the MI movies to market product. I guess Triumph feels more brand recognition and sales will be generated by the Scrambler than he Rocket. However if Cruise's feet don't touch the ground on a Rocket or maybe he's really a wuss(this is a stretch), the Scramble would be a safer choice. Rockets been out for a while but the Scrambler is new so MI3 would give it a big boost.

    :)

    I'm signing up to win the Scrambler.......thanks for the link Pig9r

    I think one of us should win it :D .... why not???

    I wonder if Mr. Cruise has to jump a wall ala Steve McQueen? Rocket III's are great bikes, but not very good at Evil knievel style launches. I guess when the movie comes out we will know more.

    I read Triumph actively gets their motorcycles into movies. Since Mi2 I've seen Hinckleys in several, even a couple of romantic comedy chick-flicks the wife brings home. That is could be very clever marketing if ya think about it :cool:

    LOL You have a sensitive side we are discovering for the first time.....how precious.....:D

    I just can't watch chick flicks as they give me the urge to vomit....:eek: So I guess I'll miss the Triumphs features in that type of movie.:)

    Luckily my wife understands completely!;)

    I wish he would jump off a wall [like a cliff wall] and take his cult of scientology with him.:D

    Totally agree, Wilbur. Lucrative dogmatism and charlatanism at their worse. Said (alerted ?) so on the RatNet forum a year ago or so:( :cool: .

    I do like the MI3 version of the Scramble with hi-pipe, one on each side and the more practical(after all it is a scrambler) knobbies. If I lit cigars with 10 dollar bills, I could justify a Scrambler, with some off-road mods for tootling around the farm, with our network of gravel roads and deer trails being the featured routes.

    The new Scrambler is booked as a "go anywhere, do anything" bike.........riiiiiiiiight.....with stock tires I'd be hurtin' for certain the first few inches on wet grass. It well be interesting though if anyone turns it into a "trail bike"......:cool: Funny how they removed the rock guard on the MI3 version......
