8 Ball Custom Paint
Welcome to the latest edition of Spirit…
The Rocket is a personal favourite of mine and still the most powerful production bike ever made, so when we were asked to do the paintwork on the 10th anniversary Limited Edition, it was a fantastic honour.
The guys at Triumph were quite clear about what they wanted. Nothing too elaborate, something subtle, stylish and different.. take a look elsewhere in this edition for a glimpse of the work that goes into getting that 8 Ball grind!
I’ve always loved Triumph for its heritage and style, and the fact that it’s a marque that never stands still, as the new Tiger range demonstrates to stunning effect, if the praise of the world’s media is anything to go by.
There’s a full breakdown of the new XC, XR, XCx and XRx and the amazing press reaction to them in this edition, as well as a chat with Chassis Development Engineer David Lopez on why the time was right for an upgrade.
Plus… join a harrowing Scrambler trek through the desert to see if YOU could tame the fesh fesh, share the passion of the Hinckley Bobber and Scrambler build off teams and discover why the world’s greatest survivalist wouldn’t be without a Triumph.
Read on and ride on.
