Triumph Launches ATLAK Tour to Promote New Tigers
The British marque rolls out American tour with more than a dozen stops between Atlanta and Alaska
Last year Triumph Motorcycles released its Bonneville Bobber Black with the "Back in Black" tour. That event visited dozens of cities, throwing parties to celebrate the new model while also providing local motorcycling communities with a fun night out with like-minded folk. Now, after the Bonnie Bobber shattered company sales records, it appears the higher-ups at Triumph have set out to repeat a successful formula. This time the UK’s biggest moto OEM has shifted its attention to its ADV segment, more specifically its Tiger 800 and 1200 models.

Dubbed the “ATLAK” (or ATLanta to AlasKa) Tour, the new roving Triumph party will make stops at 16 different North American cities along the way. Each includes food, drinks, live entertainment, and other party activities as well as an up-close look at Triumph’s new Tiger range. There will also be what the company is calling “campfire discussions” in which various ADV riding topics will be covered such as trip destinations, riding gear, riding techniques, parts and accessories, etc. Triumph does clearly state that many if not all of these events will be held outdoors, so dress accordingly.
