Video: Triumph Thunderbird LT group test

MCN, 09 April 2014 09:37

With the arrival of Triumph’s new ‘LT’ bagger version of its Thunderbird cruiser, never before have there been so many, truly credible alternatives to the all-dominant Harley-Davidson Road King. Moto Guzzi unveiled its hugely-impressive, all-new California 1400T in 2012, while the biggest threat of all to Harley, Indian, returned in the middle of last year with its own impressive offerings. ...

First Ride: Triumph 2014 Thunderbird Cruisers

Phil West, 10 February 2014 09:23

Triumph’s two new 2014 Thunderbird-based cruisers, the ‘Road King’ style LT bagger and the fat, reto-styled Commander, are currently being put through their paces for the first time by MCN Executive Editor Phil West in the USA. The LT is possibly the more significant of the two bikes being aimed directly at one of Harley’s best sellers in America’s biggest ...

Staff Blog: In search of confidence

Tony Hoare, 24 June 2013 17:56

I’ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R’s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I’m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I’ve never ridden ...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Tony Hoare, 11 June 2013 11:43

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I’ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there’s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just ...

Staff Blog: Passports at the ready

Tony Hoare, 07 June 2013 18:14

There’s always a tingle that comes with the thought of riding abroad. And, now the working day is coming to a close, I’m feeling the tingle. The sun’s shining, the TT commentary is piping out of the computer and I’m headed for Belgium on the Street Triple R. It’s not designed for touring, but you can go anywhere on anything ...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

Tony Hoare, 24 May 2013 15:20

This year I’ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it’s not me, it’s the bike  - I don’t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn’t like the wet. The handling doesn’t inspire me to commute the long way ...

Staff Blog: The long way home

Tony Hoare, 25 April 2013 14:52

“The ride to work is going to be a blast on the nimble triple – and the ride home again is going to be even better. Dear A1, you’ll not be seeing much of me.” The grey and red Triumph Street Triple R in the shed outside work has my name on it. Figuratively, not literally of course. I’ve got ...

Video: Triumph Daytona 675R first ride

MCN, 20 December 2012 13:24

Triumph took the biking world by storm in 2006 with the Daytona 675, which stuck two fingers up to the Japanese. It was a winner on the road, and the track with one of the best-loved motorcycle engines ever. Seven years on, the 600 market has dwindled, but will the new Daytona 675R seduce us again? We travel to its ...
