Extreme off-road riding with Triumph’s Tiger 800XC


Watch two wicked tricked out Triumph Tiger 800XC bikes do crazy stuff….ICON video!  Like a little movie!  Pretty good! You need to make time and sit through this whole video…seriously, a little corny at the beginning but there are amazing shots of this bike and the riders doing incredible things with a large ADV bike!

ICON Motosport challenged Triumph’s Tiger 800XC and riders Nick Brocha and Ernie Vigil with its grueling “Portland to Dakar” challenge.  Beginning in the urban confines of Portland’s city limits, the Tiger 800XCs took both riders and their gear to the very limits of endurance with miles of asphalt, vertical faces of rock, endless stretches of soft sand and deep snow, plus more water landings than a Pacific campaign. The term dual-sport failed to even remotely describe their journey.

    Wicked stuff! Posted it on my wall. Enjoyed it big screen at 1080p HD.
    Although some sections seem a bit steep for me, I would enjoy the ride (except the snow part) on my R100 GS. There seems to be ample room for detours!
