Motorcycle Touring in the Mojave Desert
Desert ghost towns tend to occupy one of two dispiriting categories.
2011 Tiger 800 (XC)
We have had an opportunity to ride the new 2011 Triumph Tiger 800 and 800 XC in Spain’s Pyrenees mountains, both on- and off-road.
Triumph has positioned the standard Tiger 800 to be an easy-to-ride motorcycle intended to compete with the Suzuki V-Strom 650, while the Tiger 800 XC goes head to head against the BMW F 800 GS.
2012 Super Ténéré
Ultimate MotorCycling has gotten a first-ride on the 2012 (yes, 2012) Yamaha Super Ténéré, a motorcycle fresh from Europe and ready to take on the American backcountry. The most important thing to understand about this adventure motorcycle is where it falls on the open class adventure motorcycle spectrum.
