That’s why the day after the first Triumph Trophy press bike in America appeared in our shop, we were already routing electric vest leads, uploading GPS maps, and jamming Clif Bars and thick socks into saddlebags. There’s only one way to properly test touring bikes, and that’s to actually tour on them! And we’re not whiffing it with a quick day trip through the Santa Monica Mountains, or even a Bay Area overnight. No, big questions like these require big, Iron Butt-style miles. Next stop, Albuquerque!
