Phil Hodgens’ Triumph Tiger adventure

Phil Hodgens from Motorbikin recently teamed up with Safari Tanks’ Robin Box for the first leg of a 12 month adventure ride around Australia

The plan is to pull a lap around the continent, taking in the best off-road adventure destinations the country has to offer, filming a four-part series for the Motorbikin DVD series, as well as a series of articles for TBAM Magazine.

They’ll be riding Triumph Tiger 800 XCs, which they think are a good bike for the job.

Robin joined Phil on the first leg across the Victorian Alps, from Melbourne to Jindabyne, sharing his knowledge of the area and getting a feel for the Tiger, that will help him design a new long range tank for the model.

The next leg will kick off in January, riding the Great Divide from Jindabyne to Brisbane.
