The Robs' Head to Portugal for Triumph Launch
Rob Murphy (Manchester Showroom Manager)
The bikes we are going to be learning about are the new Explorer, Speed Triple, T120 and Thruxton's. I have been on one of these events before in Spain, when the Tiger 800 first came out and the routes that they take you on were very picturesque.
I’m really excited about having a go on the new T120. I first saw it at Triumph's spring conference where they had one on the stage, I sneaked on stage when it had finished so I could have a proper look. I was blown away with the quality of it and it has really moved things on in a big way. I am also looking forward to riding the new Explorer with the new active suspension and want to know how this feels in real riding.
Just a bit of an outline of what we are doing
I'm picking Rob up at 6.45am (Robs not an early morning person)
We are flying to Lisbon Portugal from Manchester where we will be met by the Triumph staff and put on a coach to our hotel.
The first day usually is very low key, there may be some informal information on the bikes then an evening dinner and early to bed as tomorrow is an 8 hour riding event.
All day ride out in Lisbon with a break for lunch. (This is what we have come for and I can't wait!!!!!)
In the classroom learning all the new features in the morning, then its back on the plane in the afternoon and back home.
We will be sending a few pictures and keeping you updated with what we are up to while we are there.
Anyone with any questions please come in to our showrooms when we are back and hopefully we can answer.
