Babes Ride Out

Meet Brianna and Her 2017 Triumph Street Twin | BRO5 WIll Be Her First Event on Her New Moto

PeopleAshmore Ellis

Brianna will be attending her first Babes Ride Out this year! We are thrilled to have her and wanted to pick her brain about her recent purchase of her first motorcycle. As a new rider, she wanted something newer, more reliable, but also had the option to customize later when she was ready. Brianna went with the 2017 Triumph Street Twin.  And even though she's been riding for less than a year, she has been putting in the work and laying down the miles to get BRO ready. Please welcome this new rider and see why she picked the Street Twin as her first bike. 

The Bike: The Street Twin is one of the most contemporary, fun, and accessible Bonnevilles Triumph has to offer. The Street Twin combines a low seat height, accessible riding position, and an exciting, responsive engine with a stripped back look for maximum fun and rideability every day. This moto was designed with the spirit of individualism and customisation in mind and is a great starting point to build your own custom bike.

How long have you been riding motorcycles?
Since December 2016

Why do you ride motorcycles? 
I’ve never felt more alive!

Run us through the list of bikes you have had in your past.
My 2017 Triumph Street Twin is my 1st bike.

What first attracted you to the new Triumph?
I like Triumph’s reputation.  I’ve always been drawn to a café racer style bike.  The look and feel of the Street Twin was definitely what I was interested in.

How did you know it was the bike for you?
The first time I sat on it, I knew.  Just fit my personality, style and it felt right.

Tell us what it is like to ride?
FREEDOM!  When I’m on my bike, I feel close to the road and the world around me.  I can shut out all the other stuff, stress, etc… going on in my life and just enjoy the ride.

What made you choose your model over the other Triumph Models?
I tried out a few other Triumphs the Long Beach Trade Show.  There were several I liked but the size, style and git of the new Street Twin was exactly what I was looking for.

What has been you favorite adventure you have taken on your new bike?
I’ve only had a few rides so far since I’m still so new but I did a ride for my birthday back in April that’s been my favorite so far.  We started in Newport Beach.  Made our way to San Clemente then San Juan Capistrano, up to Costa Mesa and finished in Huntington Beach.

Do you have any fun road trips planned?
Babes Ride Out – Joshua Tree this October!  Can’t wait. This will be my 1st experience with BRO but I’m looking forward to many more.
