ADVENTURE

The spirit of discovery

If it’s there, we should conquer it.

The spirit of discovery burns in every Triumph rider. The epic adventure and the thrill of seeing what’s round the next bend because it might just be that unforgettable image that will etch itself in your memory forever

There are some who lead the way; men and women for whom going one kilometre further than the rider before is their reason for getting up each day.  

Every great explorer craves the unknown, the inner joy of being the first to go the furthest, to go where no one else has gone before. Higher, further and deeper into the unknown, to emerge triumphant… a pioneer.

It might mean fitting screws to your tyres to beat snow and ice, ignoring the eternal mountain-edge drop to your side, powering up mudslides with only a hint of gravel for purchase. The greater the challenge, the better the buzz.

THE GODFATHER OF ADVENTURE

TED’S bullet proof tiGER

Just as the Bonneville land speed record is synonymous with the bike of the same name, Ted Simon’s Triumph has a special place in history. The Tiger he made famous has a DNA that has evolved to its current high-spec, rider-friendly self over 80 years… making it the world’s longest-running adventure story, even longer than the iconic Triumph Bonneville. Simon’s ‘Transworld Trumpet’ is arguably the most celebrated adventure bike in existence, with the distinctive pannier still carrying his route map.

Pan Africa RALLY

Triumph’s search for adventure and discovery continues to the present day. The Tiger Tramontana, a prototype of the range-topping new Tiger 800 XCA, carries this epic bloodline into the next generation. Competing for the first time in the gruelling PanAfrica Rally in 2017, it took a hard fought second place in the ultra-competitive Maxi class to set the stage for the Tiger Rally adventures to follow.

It was brothers Felipe and David Lopez, Triumph’s test riders, who spearheaded the assault on the Moroccan desert endurance race on the Tramontana, a Tiger 800 XCA development bike carrying the new-generation Tiger Triple engine. The bike – and its rider – took on seasoned Dakar Rally regulars to take the Tiger’s first podium finish, and once again demonstrate its leading off-road capability.



RHYS LAWREY

Back in 2014 and in-between jobs, Rhys Lawrey was looking for a challenge. So the 22-year-old jumped on Tigger, his Tiger 800 XC, to begin a 14-month odyssey that would span 90,000km and 71 nations.

Riding from the Ace Cafe in London he crossed Europe and Asia before swinging down into Australia and then back across to the Americas. He returned older and wiser with two World Records under his belt: the youngest person to circumnavigate the world and the most consecutive capital cities visited on a motorcycle.

He ploughed through deserts, mountains and jungle, celebrating two birthdays along the way, with Tigger needing only standard service items during his journey.

Lea Rieck

In May 2016, Lea Rieck decided enough was enough when she found herself debating which tin of meat to buy in her local supermarket. Within weeks she’d quit her job and was beginning a world tour on Cleo, her Tiger 800 XCA

Her trip included riding overland from Germany to Russia, numerous ‘Stans’, China and South Asia, then on to Australia and up through South America via the USA and across Canada. The German returned in late 2017 and said she was surprised to find she’d become a softer person as a result of her experiences during the ride west
