Trip posts

As an adventure motorcycle, the Triumph Tiger XC 800 is a middle of the road in terms of capability and suitability. It is too big, heavy and poorly-adapted for off-road use to be regarded as exceptional. And, like most modern bikes, it is very complex and pretty much impossible to troubleshoot or maintain on the road (e.g. electronic fuel injection).

However, we are travelling “two-up” (rider and pillion), and the Tiger is quite good for that role. The route has been planned to work around the bike’s limitations, but will still take in some locations that are not on the average tourist itinerary.24122011196
