Friend of the blog Sean White (@fast.for.fun) has a penchant for off-road antics on his 2016 Triumph Thruxton R. Last time we saw him, he was doing ice wheelies on a frozen lake near his hometown in New Jersey, his tires studded with ice screws.
Well, things have warmed up a bit since then. Recently, he wanted to do a little woods riding on the weekend, but none of his friends were game:
“No one wanted to ride dirt bikes today, so I just went for a little ride on the street bike 🤷🏼♂️”
Sean decided to try and find the limits of this factory-built cafe — who needs an ADV bike?
