Triumph at the Baja Aragon Rally

Triumph Motorcycles has been not-so-secretly working on a pair of dirtbikes in recent years, a motocross and an enduro, even as they’ve produced class-leading adventure motorcycles through the years. We had the chance to ride and review the Tiger 900 Rally back two years ago, and found it a fantastic all-around motorcycle. Now a Tiger 900 has won a prestigious off-road endurance race in Europe, in the capable hands of 5-time Enduro world champ Iván Cervantes, who also happens to be a part of the overall Triumph Enduro project.

DGR 2022 Breaks Records

We’ve long held a special place in our hearts for the annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. This worldwide benefit ride for men’s prostate cancer and mental health strikes close to home for several of us here at Road Dirt who have dealt with cancer and/or various forms of depression, either personally or with a loved one. So after two years of social distancing and solo riding, we were thrilled to see the event returning to its original form of riders across globe gathering together to ride for the cause in their “dapper best” astride vintage, classic and modern classic motorcycles.
