Triumph Tiger 800 XC

It’s an awesome bike. One of the best I’ve ridden. It eats up the long motorway miles and makes light work of offroad tracks and trails so is definitely the right too for the job. Plus it’s British! Made in Britain by a British company with British owners. A rarity.

My bike is pretty much standard but I’ve added most of the extras for this trip including

  • Bash plate
  • Crash bars
  • Panniers and top box
  • Tail bag
  • Fog lights (mainly for extra light for night riding)
  • Headlight protectors
  • Taller screen
  • Heated grips

I’m quite tall so will also be adding bar risers to make trail riding easier.

I’ll post some pictures shortly.
