Up bright and early with a bit of trepidation as I put my name down for the advanced group. Not really sure of my riding abilities. Yea I can ride a bike and do, a lot. But never raced never won anything. So will I be ok.
After a day in the saddle the two Robs have done a little report on todays riding. These are the words of normal riders that ride nearly every day.
Today we got to Manchester airport about 8am checked in then had the worlds most expensive fry up at terminal 1.
Rob and Rob are in the sky as we speak travelling to the Triumph Immersion event in Portugal. Triumph hold the press launch in sunnier climes than Blighty but to be fair I don't recon they would have been disappointed with the weather here today. But then hopefully it will be that bit warmer for the lads in Portugal.
Well, I can't wait! Philip has asked Rob Mercer and myself to go to Portugal with Triumph next week to learn about some of the models coming out. We will be out there for 3 days with one of the days all day riding.
We recently supplied the Triumph Thunderbird for this photo shoot for Drenched
I arrived early at Manchester as I had my pickup to unload and a needed to dig deep into the showroom to extract a Bonneville as me steed for the morning. Even at 9:30 am there was a rather dapper gentleman stood by his bike, waiting for me to arrive. Wow I knew it was going to be a busy day! After that the car park just kept filling up, I recon we easily had the 138 plus that have registered for the ride.
On Friday 17th July, 2moroRider Rhys Lawrey, completed his epic journey across the globe on a Tiger 800XC. Covering 56,700 miles, 71 countries and six continents, Rhys has brought home not one but two world records.
We are delighted to confirm that Triumph will be aiming to break the motorcycle land speed record at the salt flats of Bonneville, USA, in August 2015. Piloting the purpose built, 1,000 bhp Triumph Rocket Streamliner will be Isle of Man TT racer, truck mechanic and TV presenter Guy Martin. Well known for his love of speed, Guy is relishing the prospect of bringing the land speed record back to Triumph – and the UK - after an absence of 45 years.
