The Hipster Invasion

Motorcycling in recent times has had in influx of hipsters with their chic fashion beards and goatees, stupid little caps for hats and their ultra hip cafe racer old style shitboxes that they pay through the nose for.

Hey wait I think I've just spied one here in Sydney, where you might ask but hipster central Newtown/Camperdown at the Dues store. This joker was spotted drooling over this trumpy........

  1. I can understand the drool, that is a nice looking Triumph.

    And here when you said Hipster I thought you were talking Ducati Scrambler......

    1. Brandy, you weren't the only one thinking of Ducati Scrambler with regards to the hipster reference. Love The Triumph, not hipster but cool ;-)

    2. It might not be hipster but it carries a hipster price - $13K

  2. Oi Steve,

    You leave your brother alone - he's a man of impeccable taste :-). I quite like the flat tracker look but it's got to have a decent motor, not that detuned version of the Ducati Scrambler for posers in the major cities of Europe!

  4. I was framed! He just said "stand near that bike" so I obliged. They had some nice clothes but stupidly priced rat bikes. Makes me want to get the T250 post classic racer out for a tart up and stick a silly price tag on it.

  5. Hey Steve,
    Your photo triggered a belated memory from 2011 on my blog - check this out: http://geoffjames.blogspot.co.nz/2011/07/deus-ex-machina.html . It was at Deus in Auckland - reckon it's the same bike just with a number added. They probably ship them back and forth across the Ditch!

  6. That's harsh Steve! I agree about the shit boxes though. Check out some hipsters' bikes spotted in Yea late last year
