BRO5 | A 3 Day Love Affair With the Triumph Thruxton

I have had my eye on the Triumph Thruxton ever since it was first released. A major redesign in 2016 introduced us to upgraded suspension and brakes and the body styling also has a new look. I’m not going to lie, I am pretty shallow when it comes to motorcycles and am easily dazzled by a good lookin’ bike. 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 roads and deep turns filled my head before I even sat on it. 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.  In 1951, the 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. A 1.9 mile circuit became home to 15 years of legendary racing that afforded Triumph 19 out of 45 podium places over the years. The Thruxton model started as a souped-up race version of the Bonneville but in May of 1965 the first batch rolled off the production line.  The Thruxton name is synonymous with Triumph’s racing success throughout generations and here it was, the latest and greatest sitting in the driveway. 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 took off through Joshua Tree in search of a stretch of uninhabited backroad where I could open it up. That wasn’t hard to find and a with a twist of the throttle I could feel the thrill encompass my whole body. I sensed myself going in to the adrenaline fueled head space that comes during a race. Yes, it is up to the rider to push the bike to its limits during a race but isn’t the bikes job to inspire the rider to push themselves just as hard. 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 roads 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. The bike feels stable and with 1200 cc’s worth of power and 6 gears it left nothing to be desired. 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. It understands you and is there for you no matter what kind of mood you’re in. All jokes aside, the Thruxton is the kind of bike that pushes you to ride faster and harder than you normally do. At least, that’s what it did for me. 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.

Triumph Motorcycles

There are so many reasons why we are thankful to have Triumph Motorcycles as a part of our event. Reason #1 is real simple, they make the best and most versatile motorcycles on the market that are perfect for weekend adventures, commuting, and beyond. They had their new fleet of Bonneville and Street series bikes on display throughout the weekend. Saturdays moto games were not to be missed as the solum and slow races left 1 woman standing! We were lucky enough to get to rip the Street Scrambler and Thruxton R through the desert so stay tuned for the full reviews on those amazing machines. If you liked what you saw at the Triumph booth get down to a dealership near you and test ride your favorite model.

image1.JPG

Where are you from originally?

• I am originally from a small town in Florida!

Where do you live now?

• I’ve lived in San Diego for about 5 years now!

What first got you into art?

• I’ve been making art since I was a kid. I think some major driving factors in my life were,

my grandma, who is an amazing painter. My teachers in school also did an awesome job in encouraging me to take my art further.

How would you describe your style?

• Messy and dark, a little chaotic! Haha

What inspires you? Have any artists in particular been an influence on you?

• Ugh I love this question! I am inspired by so many things around me, nature mostly,women, anatomy, old world things, creatures, bugs....etc.. I love James Jean, he is my most favorite surrealist of this time. Brom, Frazetta, Sin Eater Illustrations, honestly there are so many more..

What is your favorite medium?

• Honestly oil paints are my absolute favorite, but I also equally enjoy pen and ink and watercolor, those are my top 3!

When did you first hear about Babes Ride Out?

• I first heard about Babes Ride Out from my friend Leah, she randomly hit me up one day in 2015 and was like hey want to go moto camping?! I had a Yamaha FZ-07 and had been riding less than a year, of course I said yes! That year I ended up meeting a ton of new friends and the rest is history!

What is your connection to the motorcycle community?

• Well one of my best friends taught me how to ride and I started out just meeting his friends and then I came to babes in 2015 and started expanding my circle of moto friends!

Do you ride? If so, what do you ride?

• I do! I’ve been riding for almost 3 years, I just traded in my first bike for a 2017 883 Sportster this past March! Annnnd I love her. (her name is Xena)

If you were a motorcycle what kind would you be?

• Hahaha hmm, I just consulted my moto group and they are telling me I’m a Ducati scrambler! I do love Ducatis’, and seriously wanted a 796 Monster back in the day.

Have you ever been to Joshua Tree? What was your experience there?

• Yes! Many times, I love it there, the town, the desert, there is something calming and peaceful about the area. I love riding through the park and watching the animals and sur-roundings. I think my most favorite thing about Joshua Tree is absolutely the night sky!

What will you be contributing to this years raffle?

·      I have had the privilege of painting a jacket this year, I’ve wanted to paint a jacket for Babes since I first found about the raffle!

Tell us about what inspired you to create it?

• Well it started much like all my other projects start, with a couple sketches and revisions. I knew I wanted to do something that was me, and I am pretty excited about the finished product. It’s hard to describe really, I just start doodling and things come out! And this is where I landed!

Meet Joy Lewis in the Progressive Darkroom

SponsorsAnya Violet

Have you met Joy Lewis?

We first met Joy in the town of Idylwild with about 150 other female riders. We got to know her when a small group of us did a day ride up Angeles Crest to grab lunch. It didn’t take long to fall victim to her positive energy and beaming smile. We really got to know Joy racing along side her in the dirt…for the record, she’s fast, real fast and ripping neck n neck along side her has been some of the most thrilling racing I have experienced! Not only is she one of the most generally pleasant people to be around, she is someone that is constantly pushing herself as a motorcyclist and as a human being in general.

Joy has been one of our favorite riding buddies for many years now and she will be on site at Babes Ride Out 5 with Progressive MC. Joy has many miles under her belt and knows her way around a flat track better than most. Her garage is packed with an assortment of pristine vintage motos that would make your grandpa want re-live his heyday. She has traveled the globe on two wheels and we can't wait to enjoy the desert with her this week!

Make sure and tag your photos #progressivedarkroom to have them printed and up in the booth when you arrive at BRO5!
