With the world of dual sport riding booming each year, adventure riders are heading out in droves to test their skills both on and off road. As the less experienced riders first start to experiencing the changing terrain, weather conditions, and speeds, the question keeps coming up: “Should I be sitting or standing when I’m off road?” Continue reading

Learning iMovie not so well! I need to take the time to play with this program because I have many video’s of recent trips that I would love to be able to edit one day…here is just a trailer for fun from one of our trips this summer
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.
NICE AND SHORT! Just watch!

There has been a lot of talk recently about what the term ‘Adventure Riding’ really means. Is it blasting down a gravel highway on a fully loaded 1200cc motorcycle? Doing single track on a light enduro style motorcycle with nothing but a backpack? Or is it riding two-up with everything you own, ready to take on the next continent?
