An idiot goes green-laning on a Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE
Warning: don't do this
Over the next few weeks I'm living with the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE – it's a roadgoing retro-style, uh, scrambler motorcycle designed for a mix of pottering and hooning about sodden back lanes while feeling good about life.
Sadly for Triumph, I've heard the XE version is designed to handle off-road shenanigans. So before I took the big Scrambler on a proper road ride for a review (coming next week), I thought it'd be fun to head onto a local trail after a week of the worst rain in living memory. Bear in mind I have basically zero off-road experience, and this was steeper than it looked. Enjoy the heavy breathing.
