Just a quick post after receiving many private messages and emails asking if we would have taken our 2010 BMW F650GS bikes on the same trip we did on the Triumph Tiger 800’s last summer. Our answer is YES…totally. Our Beemers would have easily made the trip through BC, the Yukon and Alaska. We would have never have thought twice about riding up there with our own bikes. I was asked then ‘why didn’t you ride your own bikes?” Hmmmmmmmmmmm…..the answer is simple…Triumph gave us two new adventure bikes to ride on a very long demo…why would we NOT ride Triumph’s bikes, put the mileage on them and get to test ride another model? Not sure why I was asked that question but if any other company came to us and said “hey, you want to take our bikes for a ride?” I would answer yes yet again.
The Triumph Tiger 800XC with the Triumph gel seat no doubt is more comfortable on the street and more comfortable in general riding long distances in the saddle. Having said that anyone who might be looking to buy either the F650GS, F800GS or the Triumph 800….you will love any of these bikes and they will take you as far as your imagination can go….so enjoy ADV riding…it’s the best way to LIVE!
(I will fix screen shots of the specific country lists when I get home from work tonight.)
Sometime over night we hit 250,000 on our BLOG. Such an awesome response to something that started out so spontaneous because of our partnership with Triumph last summer. Over the 9 months we have learned so much from all the comments, the maps we keep to see where you are all from and much about social media and blogging. Still have so much to learn but I tell you it’s been so much fun researching and posting what we hope are interesting and at times different topics.
We have to be honest some of the countries visiting this site we have never heard of but thanks to the next few pics I will be posting we are also getting a great lesson in geography. Is your country listed?
Once again Cheryl and I would really like to thank all of you in help making this little blog such a success and we will continue to try to keep it real and fresh! Hope everyone comes back, comments once in a while and as always feedback is welcomed! Take a look at the world below as we see it! Continue reading “250,000 HITS! Another Big Thank You!”
