Which bikes do not belong? ;-) Anyone know where this is and who’s the gang we were trying to blend in? Hint: it’s a tour…
Where in the world were we when these pictures were taken?
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.
Starts at $19,999

Whittier, Alaska, driving the longest combined vehicle-railroad tunnel in North America!
Love this picture of Cheryl on the McCarthy – Kennicott Pedestrian bridge where bikes are allowed to ride over….very hippy dippy area in Alaska!
We took the BMW R1200GS, Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere, Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 and KTM 990 Adventure on an off-road adventure and to really test their abilities, we enlisted Stan Watt, who finished 34th in this year’s Dakar Rally.

Once again a rider has really been able to capture via his video just what ADV riding is all about. I am not sure we would ever be able to just ride pavement ever…well, we might have to when we get older…
Everyday I see the majority of bikes being cruisers on the road. When we both see an ADV bike there is an instantaneous instinct to want to wave and if they are loaded, Leslie wants to catch up with them and find out where they are going and where they have been. That is the ADV way for us. Just seems that ADV riders have more stories about the elements, the terrain, where their GPS took them only to find a gate closed on a dirt road. We love camping stories and where other riders found the “best” spot. We like to see at times how long we can go before we see people….finding that route that takes you where you can see things that a cruiser or car won’t let you is how we see it.
Have a peek…you will love this video too.
