Kovert Bikes, Custom Triumph scrambler.
This thing sounds amazing and when I give up the racing I’m selling my race bikes and getting something like this.

1964 Steve McQueen ISDT replica.
My very good friend Tony got married at the weekend. I was best man and months ago when he asked me he also mentioned that he would like to turn up to the venue on his Norton 961SE.
Unfortunately that bike has been in storage and as he lives abroad it wasn’t going to be possible to get the bike ready for the day.
I decided that I was going to make things happen. Firstly I bought him this as his wedding gift. I then set about sourcing a Triumph for him to ride. I planned on riding my Ducati as his wingman.
The Triumph I managed to borrow for the day is part of a project that was completed by another friend who I ride dirtbikes with. A customised Triumph Scrambler with the most sublime, yet loud, one off titanium exhausts.
We rolled up the the venue on the bikes in our wedding suits, ditched our helmets and he went about marrying his beautiful wife. It felt great to turn up in such a way and I wasn’t even the one getting married.
Once I get the official shots of the day I’ll post a couple up but for now it’ll just be shots I’ve taken of the Triumph and his helmet.
Love it, I wanted to do this years ago but couldn’t afford to have custom made leathers. I’ve even thought about having some flesh coloured ones made so it looks like you are racing naked.
