Triumph Motorcycle Makes A Movie Appearance

Last weekend I rented a new movie called "Peaceful Warrior" starring Nick Nolte. The movie is based on the book written by Dan Millman about when he was a somewhat reckless Triumph motorcycle riding college athlete.

At the time he thought he had everything going for him until he met a grizzled old gas station attendant (Nick Nolte). The old man had a thing or two to teach him about life. He also learned how not to ride his Triumph.

The movie's message on finding peace and happiness is delivered in a thought provoking and entertaining way. I won't go into any more detail, I don't want to spoil it for you.

I saw the movie and liked it alot. I think the Triumph is a Bonneville or Speedmaster.

Yep, I think your right about it being a Bonneville. Looks like a newer one though. The actual story takes place beginning in 1966. The setting of the movie however appears to be modern times.
