Conquering Fears // Tamara Raye's Triumph Scramblers

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Triumph Scramblers?
I have several bikes in the stable these days, but I choose them for their versatility. I am particularly partial to
Triumph Scramblers, either air-cooled 900's, the Street Scrambler, or the more robust Triumph 1200XC. I adore adventure riding on a modern classic and have found that venturing farther into the unknown on a big bike has pushed me to face my fears on and off-road, ultimately becoming a much more well-rounded and self-sufficient rider.

Therapeutic Value in Riding // Matt Kinley's Triumph Scrambler 1200

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Triumph Scrambler 1200?
I have a real soft spot for the
Triumph brand, it’s heritage, it’s styling and what it means in motorcycle culture. Growing up in the Norfolk countryside meant I started out on enduro bikes, Hyosung XRX, Yamaha WR etc, they were perfect for bombing about back lanes and traversing fields. I wanted a ‘do it all’ machine, and the Triumph Scrambler 1200 ticked all those boxes, after spending a full day on one giving it a test ride, I was instantly sold. I turned it into my own little weapon, and I absolutely love it.

Proper Freedom Machines // Freddie Dobbs’ Triumph Bonneville

by Kelly Kawasaki

Motorcycles are proper freedom machines. I love the feeling of freedom as much as I love my bike. It doesn’t matter what bike you ride.
