I haven't been but to two High School reunions in 48 years because of a 1956 750 Royal Interceptor (badged Indian) riding up the steps, burning rubber through the halls and out the back door the day before graduation.

HAP, that is pretty cool. You old guys could get away with that kind of stuff in your youth. If my generation did those kind of things, we would have been prosecuted like murderers.

So when the elevator car stops, the doors open, and there are three motorcycles, 6 riders, 4 bags of jewelry, and an axe...do you wait for the next one or just take take the stairs?

It would be frickin' awesome..it would be so awesome that the word "awesome" itself fails miserably in describing just how awesome it would actually be.

'Course, my smash & grab activities would probably be confined to the mall's food court, but that's just me...

Let's just say that those who held the doors open and the rider didn't get caps and gowns. Mail two weeks latter delivered diploma.

Jail time was close when the principle's VW ended up on the schools roof.

Looks like the white bike in the background is a Daytona 675R as well. Perhaps a Triumphs only biker gang?

Maybe Triumphs are just easier to steal.

They are ridiculously easy to steal. Ten seconds with a slide hammer will yank the ignition barrel and you`re away. I see that the new Street Triple has an immobiliser fitted, bout time, I say!


If you`re wondering how they got onto the second floor, you can access it through the second level of the car park, just ride through the doors.
