Vintage Triumph Hot Rod Motorcycle! On Two Wheels Ep. 42
On this episode of On Two Wheels, we get a behind the scenes look at
Champions Moto, a custom motorcycle, parts, and apparel company started by
Richard Varner in partnership with Terry Karges. Champions Moto teams up
with the legendary So-Cal Speed Shop to create a Hot Rod interpretation of
a street-able flat track race bike.
We take a look at the build process from design to fabrication to
completion and get to see first hand, one of the most beautiful
hand-crafted bikes we have ever come across.
On Two Wheels appears every other Wednesday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Arrow Exhaust Sound Comparison Triumph Speed Triple 1050
A sound comparison of Triumph stock cans and Arrow slip ons with baffles in
and out on the Triumph Speed Triple 1050 (2008). On another vid I recieved
34000 views but had the vid deleted due to the music I placed on the intro
- so thought I would do again as the vid was of interest to a few people.
Triumph Speed Triple R Test
So what does the 'R' mean and is it worth the extra money? We take a closer
look at Triumph's naked triple at Red Star Raceway...

2014 Triumph Bonneville | Bonneville T100 bike review
The Triumph Bonneville is one of the most iconic names in motorcycle
history and remains as popular today as it was in its Cafe Racer
beginnings. The modern day Bonneville may now feature disc brakes, electric
start and a more user friendly mindset, but that has only extended appeal
to a new legion of riders, whether you are new to riding, coming back to
riding or simply fancy a second bike to covet on those (rare) sunny days.

Keswick, England, for their warm hospitality and letting us film our intro
sequence during a busy morning's service.

Meet Stephanie Gage Of Austin, TX - Winner Of The 2013 Triumph Bonneville
While it's rewarding to see someone get so lucky, my opinion of Stephanie
Gage, found solid ground for a different reason. When asked about her
favorite aspect of the contest besides the bike, the quiet-natured Texan
responded without flinching, "That more than one person won." She's
referring, of course, to the fact that when we set this up, we made a call
to our friend Neale Bayly, moto journalist and humanitarian, and asked him
to get involved, tying in the ability to help his foundation, Wellspring
International Outreach, with an optional donation upon entry. Thousands
stepped up, contributing over $50,000 to help the children of Peru. It
makes the miles she'll be putting on her new ride all the sweeter.
Special thanks to everyone involved in this fantastic project.

Stephanie! You won!
(speechless. still.) I still can't believe it.
Tell us about yourself.
I am a mother of two boys, 8 & 7. I live in Austin, TX and spend most of my
time riding, camping & practicing photography.
How did you hear about Iron & Air for the first time?
Oh man, can't remember. I think maybe I was looking for different kinds of
motorcycle magazines - something different. Actually, yeah, I came across
it online somehow. I was thrilled when I ran into it. I was immediately
taken by how it was geared towards culture rather than just bike specs.
Thrilled. Hooked immediately.
Thank you for that! How did you hear about the contest?
I was on the Iron & Air web site doing some shopping, looking for t-shirts.
And then boom, enter to win a Triumph. Hello.
Our aim was to help out a friend and a cause with this effort, the addition
of Wellspring International Outreach, led by humanitarian and journalist
Neale Bayly - how did you feel about the tie-in & contributing?
I mean, how great that more than one person has won in this. I know I will
enjoy the bike that much more. Other people benefitted from it. I also
liked the fact that donating was optional and the amount was up to me.
Tell us about what the experience was like when you were notified?
Ha! I was actually annoyed! Let me explain: I was hanging out online
watching a moto video and kept hearing pings and dings from my phone - you
know text message notifications, emails arriving, Twitter, Facebook,
Instagram pings. I was like "What the hell, let me watch this video!"
So you were flown in from Austin, to be presented the bike and key, what
was that experience like?
A whirlwind, surreal, crazy experience. When I actually saw the bike, it
sunk in. This is real, it's right in front of me! Certainly like being in a
dream state up until then.
Other than winning the bike, what has been most memorable about this?
The people I met on the trip. Excited to be around everyone. Great vibe,
great crowd. Everyone was good to one another and I always felt very
Where are you riding first?
I was super excited to ride it the first night I was awarded it, in
downtown Ste. Pete and then the following day with a large group across
Florida to Orlando for a vintage festival. When it arrives here in Austin,
I'll be riding it home from dealer with some backroads riding around Austin
no doubt - into New Braunfels and San Marcos. The area surrounding Austin
are much better for riding than in Austin.
If we come visit, can we borrow the bike?
We'll see. ;)
