C5 Teal in commercial?
« on: June 09, 2011, 03:29:06 AM »
There's been this Allstate Insurance commercial where the
guy is talking about different insurance products and in the background,
it has a guy washing a bike that looks a LOT like a C5 Teal with a bench seat.
the bike is out of focus, but it really looks like one.
Anyone else seen this?

Yeah, I've seen it and wondered the same thing.  But I thought it was a Triumph at first glance.  Maybe just...

Checked youtube. Found bikes without riders crashing. Makes me sick. Saw mayhem on the gold chopper. Got a link?

I found the link to it on YouTube .
it may be a triumph, but who cares, let's just say it's a
C5.
it's looks cool enough to be one.

It's probably a new model Triumph.  It has that little bend up just before the muffler.  The old Triumphs didn't have it and neither does the RE.
