Guest Editor - Ernie Vigil
Ride Icon drifter
Hi there and thanks for coming,
It’s a bike that’s remained agile, edgy and raw since its birth 21 years ago, so much so that I’ve ditched my old Japanese bikes to give my shows that extra grunt.
I’m honoured to be guest editor of this edition of Spirit, which features two young Triumph riders riding their way into the record books. Their physical and emotional journeys show vividly how riding can shape you as a person.
We’ve had adrenalin–fuelled Big Trips in previous issues, so this time the guys have slowed the pace to show even the most laid back riders that there’s nothing stopping them finding magic out there.
Elsewhere in this issue, our friends at Bike Shed reveal exciting plans for a permanent venue, new website and more, and there’s your usual letters and the Big Picture competition winner.
So drift your way through the mag and keep sending in your stuff.
