VERY cool Icon video!

Just watched this 32 minute video - almost think it's a Triumph Trophy test!


Watch it full screen.

Cool video, makes me wonder if my V could take half the beating those triumphs did. Maybe if I buy some knobbys and some Icon gear...

Shot entirely in Oregon. Pretty cool though and did not lessen my desire to add a 800XC to the stable.

There is an article out there somewhere that describes in some detail what it took to keep things going.

I bought one for daily use.

It's pretty cool and definitely gets looks. Mine is the flat black. Looks like an alien fighter pilot helmet.

I'd rather be riding.

When I watched it, and the banner came up saying it was some tropical rain-forest, but looked just like BC to me, I figured it WAS one of the states just south of here!

A Couple of those "wrecks" just HAD to hurt...!
