The rain just stopped as I pulled up to the East London Triumph dealership operated by the LIND. I had been eagerly waiting for this day for weeks – a chance to take the new Triumph Tiger 900 out for a spin on some mixed local roads.
After completing the paperwork and going through a quick safety briefing with Peter (Great guy – so helpful), I hopped on the bike and hit the road. The Tiger 900 felt powerful and responsive beneath me, and I couldn’t wait to see what it could do.
My first stop was at the ACE Cafe, a nearby diner in West London, where I grabbed a coffee and met up with the owner and teams from Bike Safe and National Highways to start planning for the big Motorcycle Awareness Day (M.A.D) that will take place at the ACE Cafe on the 4 June – more to follow on this event. The meeting over, I fuelled up and planned out my route back to East London.
As I rode through the city, the Tiger 900 handled every twist and turn with ease. The suspension soaked up bumps and potholes in the road, and the brakes were strong and responsive. I couldn’t help but grin as I clocked up each mile, feeling the bike’s stability and agility.
The light began to fade, so I made my way back to the dealership, feeling tired but exhilarated from my day of adventure. Riding the Triumph Tiger 900 was an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to do it again soon.
