Tiger 800 ...Yeah, it's that good

By Nick Napoda
on March 22, 2011

Back in 2008 Zach and I were at the Triumph international dealer meeting when we were told they would introduce 12 completely new motorcycles by 2012. They boasted of new categories, revamped currents and things we wouldn’t even dream of. Naturally we were hungover skeptical, but Triumph has been delivering on their promise. We’ve seen the Street Triple, Street Triple R, fuel injected modern classics, Rocket III Touring, Thunderbird, Thunderbird Storm, significant updates to the America, Speedmaster, Speed Triple and Sprint, but honestly the biggest game changer is the new Tiger 800. About a month ago, my brother and I test drove this new bike in the desert of Arizona and 2 weeks ago one of our “geniuses” (aka: technicians), Jared Morris, went out to look under its skirt.

By Nick Napoda
on March 11, 2011

Our Master Tech Guy Hayes attended Ohlins suspenion training last month on his way to being Level 3 Ducati Certified. TTRNO now offers full Ohlins suspenion service. Here is some feed back from Guy on his training.... It is not increased HP, lightweight components or digital whiz-bang electronics that defies the motorcycle riding experience. It is suspension. Ohlins suspension specializes in increasing confidence and enjoyment of every rider at any skill level.

Triumph invited a select number of dealers to test the new Tiger XC on a 90 mile, on/off road adventure through the dessert in Arizona during our annual Dealer Conference at the end of January. Being that I had never spent anytime off-road before I was a little nervous, but I jumped at the opportunity.

My Sunday with the Triumph Sprint GT

By Nick Napoda
on February 18, 2011

As we set out early Sunday morning, the temperature is lower than expected; 31* says my iPhone. The big Sprint is instantly comfortable for the first 75 mile stretch. The frigid weather however, is only amplified by the three or so inch too short windscreen that comes standard on the Sprint GT. The big Triumph’s ergonomics are what I consider a perfect blend between sporty and comfortable for long distances. Blasting down LA18 the bike was amazingly confidence inspiring even given the horrible century old pavement. The telescopic forks may not be high tech, but they are certainly sprung and damped very well and do an excellent job of disguising the 550 plus pounders’ weight. Same goes for the new GT’s brakes. ABS gives you a great mental safety net, but considering their axial mounting I was truly stunned by their power and feel. The levers for both clutch and brake are 4 point adjustable, and even with my XXL hands, they had to be adjusted to their closest position for my fingers to even reach. While the rearsets are in great position for athletic, yet relaxed riding, the passenger pegs seemed to want the same real estate my heels did.
