Edelweiss Triumph Adventure Touring 2011

Tuesday, February 22, 2011
Triumph Tiger 800XC
Join Edelweiss Bike Travel on four different tours of unique European landscapes on the Triumph 800XC.
Triumph Motorcycles is introducing a worldwide adventure tour program in 2011, utilising its critically acclaimed new Tiger 800XC. A range of five adventure tours, ranging from 11 to 16 days, are being offered from June 2011 and will be run in cooperation with Edelweiss Bike Travel, the world’s largest and most respected motorcycle tour company. Triumph has plans to extend the program with an even wider range of itineraries available from 2012.

Three of the tours will start with a look around Triumph’s state-of-the-art factory in Hinckley, in the British Midlands, before taking riders to the iconic Isle of Man, the beautiful Scottish Highlands or on a European tour to Austria for the annual party that is Triumph’s Tridays festival. Adventurers
looking for a Sahara experience can take on the north African Triumph Adventure Tour, while an Asian trip around stunning Thailand is scheduled to take place in December.

With the exception of June’s Tridays tour, which is conducted using the participant’s own motorcycle, Triumph Adventure Tours include use of the Tiger 800XC for the duration of the event. All tours are lead by Edelweiss’ extremely knowledgeable and experienced tour guides and include all accommodation and a fully equipped support van.

“Following the introduction of the new, go everywhere, Tiger 800XC, the obvious next step was the introduction of Triumph Adventure Tours, allowing customers to experience the motorcycle in it’s natural environment, without having to go through the long and difficult process of researching and planning their own trips,” said Paul Stroud, Triumph’s Director of Sales and Marketing.

“We have chosen to partner with Edelweiss as they are the best in the business, having run over 1600 motorcycle tours in over 180 destinations over the past 30 years. Their expertise and local knowledge gives customers the reassurance that the events will be well run with good hotels, exciting roads and a high level of backup. Each tour will be led by an Edelweiss tour guide, with another guide following in a support van. It means that participants can get on with what we all love to do on a motorcycle touring holiday – enjoying the ride and the great destinations with a bunch of
like-minded people.”
