Learning from past experiences is how we grow as individuals. So, “How?” you may ask, did I end up with yet another Triumph Spitfire? Well, let’s just say that this time around, I wasn’t looking to explore the values of classic British car ownership. This time I was hunting for a profit.
I went to The One Motorcycle Show in Portland over this past weekend so you didn’t have to. Actually, you should have, because it was awesome. More than 120 bikes on were on display, ranging from the pristine to bizarre. Plus, lots of beer and food, live music and more stickers than you could possibly use.
Let’s be honest, the Tokyo Auto Salon isn’t exactly known for its high number of classic vehicles. Instead it’s known for all the utter insanity of its modification. When a classic shows up, it sticks out. And the WWork rich blue Triumph TR3A is a Rembrandt at a hipster modern art gallery.
A turbocharged street bike is pretty cool. Two of them is cooler. Two of them drifting at full-noise within a few inches of each other and concrete walls? Ice cold.
Episode six of the latest season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee features the hilariously grounding John Oliver, and he just might be the first person Jerry seems to genuinely get along with.
Back on Memorial Day weekend, the Lonestar Region of the SCCA had their final race at Texas World Speedway, or TWS as it’s more commonly known. This was supposed to be the last actual race at the venue, which would be the 2nd, or 3rd maybe “final” weekend. As this goes to press, now it sounds like the track will be…
Isn’t it amazing how the elections bring out the best in our culture? This unidentified man claims on Facebook that he was just trying to walk into a Walmart when he was attacked for wearing a Triumph shirt. Too close to “Trump” for some people, he said. I’ve been unable to find out whether it’s real or fake, but it’s…
Triumph just held their international launch for the all-new Triumph Thruxton, where journalists from around the world got to test it out and get the full run down on the bike. Initial reports are good but, with a such a lofty price tag, it’s a tough pill to swallow. Would you buy one?
Ernie Vigil and Nick Apex are two of the most talented stunt riders around. In their latest attempt to one-up their last video, the boys head to Lima, Peru to drift their way around the city.
This 1980 car has just 853 miles on the clock, a wooden shift knob, tartan seats and pop up headlights, naturally. You got three days to get involved, so get cracking on this Triumph!
The point of competition has changed once again in the Adventure segment. First it was farkles like extra lights or moveable windscreens. Then it was the power. Now, top tier ADV bikes must have a slew of electronic aids to keep Ewan “I only ride with a full support crew” McGregor and every other goofball upright…
BMW teased a R nineT scrambler earlier this year when they let Roland Sands put a surfboard and some higher bars on the Path 22 concept. This video shows the bike in production form, set for release next week.
Triumph have taken the wraps off their new super naked, the 2016 Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R. With some modest engine and bodywork changes, a great bike just got a little better.
The 2016 Triumph Thruxton and Thruxton R made the biggest splash when news of Triumph’s new classic range of motorcycle broke. Triumph have yet to release the full specs, but the ones they have shared are looking pretttttty spectacular.
Last week, we brought you news of a bunch of new additions to Triumph’s Retro line, brought to you by a bunch of people posting on Instagram when they probably weren’t supposed to be. Well, I finished a long week of traveling, so let’s dive in and see what separates these machines and look at the T120 and T120 Black.
The parade of updates to Triumph’s Retro line continues, and last but not least, let’s look at the updated Street Twin. (Tired of these yet? Neither am I.)
While Triumph might be best known for its retro-styled “classics” lineup, they also propagate a weirdly half-naked modern looking sportbike called the Speed Triple. The 2016 version has been spotted for the first time, and reports are saying it’s getting up to 140 horsepower.
The Triumph Castrol Rocket is a “motorcycle” that really looks more like a spaceship. The team’s out in Bonneville chasing speed records, and the most incredible thing about this run is how calm the bike seems at 233 MPH.
