A Street Triple in the sand

“A couple months ago we tasked our rider Julien Welsch to create the most intense freestyle film he could,” writes Icon. “A couple days in the Moroccan desert and a thoroughly used Street Triple later, he came back to us with ‘Sportbike Desert Ride.’ The video has everything from dune jumping, to getting pummeled by a wave, to a Frenchman in his underwear. It’s the internet and motorcycles in a 5 minute capsule, and really highlights the new ICON Hooligan Street Jersey.”

      Scott, you didn’t need to buy that XR600, just some knobs for the Street Tripple ;)

    So he’s ridden a Striple on ice, in the woods, and now in the desert.

    He’s really making me rethink my belief that the Scrambler is universal Brit bike of choice out of the Triumph line.

    Anyone else catch the “hexadrone” at the 5 min mark. I want one. Imagine taking track videos to the next level.

    The Street is such a versatile bike. I’ve taken mine off road as well as the semi tracks we call Green Lanes here in England. Never done the dunes though. So Camber Sands (near Hastings/Rye/Dungeness) here I come.
