Triumph pulls the cover off new models in Mpls.

What possesses two jamokes from Red Wing to drive to Minneapolis to attend the Triumph Bonneville Back In Black Tour on a Thursday eve? Free beer, prolly. Local dealers unveiled some new models at Modist Brewing in the North Loop of Minneapolis last night. More Bobber versions revealed as well as the sorta redesigned but upgraded Tiger 800 and Explorer 1200 adventure bikes (which, by the way, is now the Tiger 1200.) Here is a look in pictures. As usual a swell time was had by all.

Thruxton Cup. Berry, berry nice.

New Tiger 1200. Me likey in red

Revised Tiger 800 XC with more buttons and stuff on it.

Da Cup, again. Hipsters will buy this.

Tank detail of Tiger 800XC. Nice paint.

Speedmaster makes dramatic entrance. Crappy photo. Sorry.

Mpls artist Linda Clayton was on hand to paint Triumph inspired art.
. Unfortunately, she did not give it to us to hang on the wall. By the way, she rides a Ducati. Cool.
