He fought his way through to 15th in the first race but a manoeuvre to avoid an incident in the second race meant he had to pit for debris to be removed and effectively curtailed his race. In race three, the car came alive, and the year-old fought his way up to a respectable tenth position from 18th. This allowed him to stretch his lead in the Jack Sears Trophy to an impressive 88 points with half of the round campaign remaining. Thruxton is a track the team has had a lot of success at ly, and one where its pair of Honda Civic Type Rs run well, with 12 podium finishes — including a trio of victories — for the squad over the past five years enough to bring an air of confidence for the Droitwich-based outfit. The lap times were super close this year and, with the whole grid covered by just over a second, it is difficult to move your way through the pack. One thing that is key this year is that you must qualify well, otherwise your weekend is compromised from the off, so that will be my goal: to qualify well.
I have had my eye on the Triumph Thruxton ever since it was first released.
A major rede in introduced us to upgraded suspension and brakes and the body styling also has a new look. Before you turn the key and you hear the growl of the engine all you have to go off of is looks.
Well, the Thruxton is a looker for sure! It would wink at me from across the room at the local dealerships. The sleek aerodynamic lines and upswept exhaust give the bike an overall more aggressive personality, even a bit cocky one might say.
I think the allure came because I could really visualize myself on the bike just by looking at it. Entire riding fantasies of twisty back ro and deep turns filled my head before I even sat on it.
Quick review: triumph thruxton r – a love story has begun …
Ok ok, enough about the looks. I finally got the opportunity to ride this beast at Babes Ride Out 5!!!
I was a little nervous, like a first date. Maybe because it was actually my first time on a Thruxton all together and the Thruxton name is about as legendary as it gets. Inthe once Royal Air Force base Thruxton Airfield became a civilian airfield and was established to host 6 motorcycle race events as a part of the Festival of Britain.
The Thruxton model started as a souped-up race version of the Bonneville but in May of the first batch rolled off the production line. It was like a blind date where your friend hypes up the dude so much that you have no option but to be semi-disappointed when you meet him.
Well, I was not!
Being a Bonneville rider I was expecting a bit of an adjustment as I got comfortable with the more aggressive race position on the bike. Lower handlebars and rear sets had me positioned in a way that you feel a lot more at one with the bike which I liked instantly.
Turning the key and firing it up, I was impressed to hear a more rich bass exhaust sound that only added to my excitement. I sensed myself going in to the adrenaline fueled head space that comes during a race.
Thruxton drivers eye - what’s it like to drive thruxton?
While I am having this nostalgic and extremely nerdy moment with the Thruxton I realized that I am not racing, I am just cruising down a desert road and I need to chill. Throughout the weekend I was constantly in search of winding ro with great turns and wide open straightaways.
The Thruxton is extremely agile with sharp handling no matter what the road throws at you, even in a little bit of dirt. This is the kind of bike that may or may not kill your romantic relationships because you just would rather hang out with it than anyone else.
All jokes aside, the Thruxton is the kind of bike that pushes you to ride faster and harder than you normally do. I had the most fun on it when I was riding solo and able to ride at whatever pace I felt like.
I am already looking forward to my second date with the Thruxton R. I think we really have something together. Cart 0. Events Anya Violet October 31, supermoto, socal supermoto, womens only, babes ride out.
