Steve McQueen has the Midas touch when it comes to things for guys. Persol sunglasses, Rolex watches, t-shirts, Ford Bullitt mustangs and Triumph motorcycles are just a few of the things guys everywhere lust after due (in no small part) to McQueen. He obviously loved all of that stuff, but he had a special place in his heart for Triumph motorcycles. Triumph is returning the favor by producing a special edition Steve McQueen motorcycle for 2012. based off the Bonneville T100
Steve McQueen in The Great Escape. They dressed up a Triumph to look like a German bike. One of the coolest motorcycle chase scenes put to film LOVED reading the Gardner files- which Jim Garner was in this movie too
