Get a Trophy, Walk with Zombies, Racing and More

 

Get a Trophy, Walk with Zombies, Racing and More. The Trophy gets love from RoadRunner magazine, Norman Reedus is a Triumph fan, the Explorer continues to impress, and more all to read here. Thank you for stopping by, we hope you enjoy these articles.

 


“The Triumph Trophy ticks all the right boxes for a stellar sport-touring machine. It has a fantastic engine, good suspension and handling, plenty of practical storage, great load capacity, and is all-day comfortable,” proclaims RoadRUNNER magazine in a stellar new review of Triumph’s luxury tourer. Among a long list of creature comforts and high-end amenities, they point to the Trophy’s incredible three-cylinder power plant and sporting performance that really set it apart in the highly competitive sport-touring class.

What’s more anticipated than the next season of The Walking Dead? For motorcyclists, it might be Norman Reedus’ new series Ride with Norman Reedus. Entertainment Weekly and USA Today report the show, which premieres June 12, will follow The Walking Dead star “around the country as he digs into biker culture at custom bike shops, tattoo parlors, and smokehouses while hanging out with collectors and mechanics.” Reedus is a well-known Triumph fan who owns a Bonneville and a Tiger 800. Word is the new series will feature several different Triumph motorcycles. We can’t wait!

Norman Reedus likes Triumph

The Triumph Explorer XCA is put to the test in the May issue of Motorcycle Mojo in an effort to see how the new flagship Tiger stacks up to the competition. They love the triple’s “broad, flat power band and splendid sound,” the advanced tech, and admit that “Triumph have really nailed the rider interface.” But it’s the TSAS adjust-on-the-fly suspension that steals the show. “It’s this adjustable suspension that really transforms the bike, allowing you to conveniently cover a variety of terrain…the folks at Triumph HQ have really done their homework.”

Tiger Explorer Impresses

Turkey-based Bunker Custom Cycles has gained a world-wide reputation for their ultra-clean Triumph custom builds. This beautiful bobber based on a 1961 Triumph Speed Twin 5TA is no exception. Losing the “bathtub” rear fairing and headlamp nacelle was job one. The simplified hardtail look is more reminiscent of the original Edward Turner designed rigid-frame Speed Twin, but closer inspection reveals a set of nicely integrated Burly Brand shocks. Donor forks, front brake and headlamp clean up the front end while assorted brass bits complement the rich gloss-black paint. Check out BikeEXIF for more details.

The announcement of Triumph Motorcycles as the presenting sponsor of this year’s Ramspur Winery Santa Rosa Mile – the season finale of the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track schedule – was covered by National Speed Sport News, AMA Pro Racing and Motor Sports Newswire. “Once again, we are honored to have Triumph Motorcycles as our presenting sponsor,” said promoter Terry Otton. “With their rich heritage in professional Flat Track racing and a strong Triumph Brand following in Northern California we welcome and thank Triumph Motorcycles for their support.” This year’s race will be held on September 25. Tickets are available on the AMA Pro Racing website.

The Drive’s recently published list of “The 7 Best Customized Celebrity Vehicles” was definitely compiled by a car guy. Among a list of several modern and classic muscle cars is just one lone motorcycle – Ryan Reynolds’ now famous custom Triumph Thruxton. At least they picked a good one! As they sum it up: “It seems Deadpool is a bit of a bike fanatic, which explains why he tapped master bike builder Dustin Kott to help transform a Triumph Thruxton into a properly beautiful café racer.”
