ROAD TEST: BMW R1200R – 27 With its new DOHC radial four-valve head engine BMW’s R1200R is more than just a bare bones roadster as ex Ed Jonathan Bentman has just found out. ROAD TEST.: TRIUMPH SCRAMBLER – 33 To understand why we slipped on a set of Mitas knobbies before we ‘tested’ Triumph’s latest Scrambler you have to go back aways. RIDDEN: H-D XL1200C – 39 In which a major change to one of Harley-Davidson’s iconic Sporty models receives the thumbs up from Racing Dave. ROAD FEATURE: FINDING 40 Turning 40 gave Grant Morris just the excuse he needed to load up his Buell Ulysses and complete a longpromised lap of the South Island. ROAD FEATURE.: COLD DUCK RALLY – 51 This year’s Cold Duck Rally in the Hawke’s Bay was another beauty. Rally man Nash ponders the reason why. INSIDE SWC: ALSTARE SUZUKI – 68 For a motorcycle said to be at the end of its life, Suzuki’s GSX-R1000K9 is still a very competent package – even at the highest level, the Superbike World Championship. Michael Esdaile has the story.

That’s the message from KR tester Brenton May who has done plenty of hard dirt kms on Honda’s quarter litre enduro over the years. DIRT COMP: ENDURO CHAMPS.– 109 Yamaha rider Rory Mead sealed his second New Zealand Enduro title with a winning ride at the Taupo final last month. Andy McGechan has the story.

Introducing the James Dean Legends clothing collection James Dean joins Steve McQueen and Marlon Brando, three legends of the silver screen, whose passion for Triumph and riding motorcycles have been sympathetically celebrated within our clothing range.

Hot products ROAD

TRIUMPH JAMES DEAN LEGENDS

Born on February 8th 1931, in Marion, Indiana, USA, James Dean’s rise to fame was epitomised with the film ‘Rebel Without a Cause’. However, Dean will also be remembered with the way he has continued to capture the world with his casual style, unflinching look and rebel attitude. James Dean has defined the essence of cool and rebellious attitude for generations. His passion for Triumph was a personal pleasure and not a prop for any films, making him an authentic Triumph riding legend like McQueen and Brando. Dean was heavily influenced by Brando and his part in ‘The Wild One’ which led him to purchase a Triumph of his own. He actually owned two Triumphs, a 1955 Tiger 110 followed by his most famous bike, a 1955 Trophy TR5, purchased from Ted Evans Motorcycles of Culver City. In shell blue, James Dean heavily customised the bike, including a back to front pillion seat, high bars and custom fenders, mimicking Brando’s own bike that he rode during the famous biker movie The James Dean Special Edition Jacket (RRP $849) is inspired by the type of jackets he wore when riding his Triumph. This aviator style jacket is constructed from 1.2mm high grade darkbrown cowhide. The removable fur collar again signals back to Dean’s personal style while the jacket also includes CE protectors to elbow and shoulder, a removable thermal lining, side adjustment zippers, double impact seam stitching and waist connection zippers for jeans. The finishing touches include a leather arm patch with James Dean’s signature and an internal story-board to the lining detailing Dean’s passion for Triumph. Two t-shirts complete the series. James Dean #1 (RRP $69) has a movie poster theme depicting his shell blue TR5 while James Dean #2 (RRP $69) shows the Ted Evans decal that was on his bike. Both include the vintage Triumph logo and James Dean signature prints. This series of products is officially

licensed by James Dean’s estate and is available now from Triumph’s authorised dealer network. Marcus Winslow, the administrator of the James Dean’s estate, said: “I am very excited to work with Triumph and uphold my cousin’s legacy.” Dean’s estate is marketed and managed by CMG, the leader in marketing and managing the most famous names of the 20th century. Included among these are the estates of Amelia Earhart, Ella Fitzgerald and Bettie Page, as well as celebrities such as Pamela Anderson, Bill Elliott, Neil Armstrong and Chuck Berry. KIWI RIDER 79
