Tiger Trails

This past week was spent in the company of Triumph and its motorcycles. First, we wrestled Tiger 800s on slick and slippery trails in Aamby Valley, Maharashtra, under the watchful eye and cutting tongue of Vijay Parmar, rider extraordinaire and chief trainer, Tiger Training Academy.  Later, we got a little seat time on the much-anticipated Triumph Street Scrambler as seen in the previous post.


Tiger Trails is a structured training program that is designed to instill the basic techniques of off road riding and confidence hand in hand. Large adventure motorcycles can be difficult to manage in the dirt because of their weight and bulk. You can get away with a lack of dirt riding skills on small bikes, but an adventure bike can hurt you if you don’t know what you are doing.

By the end of the session, we were humbler, safer and far more confident riders in the dirt…

Vijay Parmar can't believe how bad journos are off-road...
