Tuareg Rallye -2016
« on: March 07, 2016, 10:24:48 am »
Hi,

I have a friend, John Young, who is all things Triumph Triple.  He owns Slippery Sam and some other classic Triumph Triples.  He has constructed a 1960's engine Triple in a Wasp frame to compete in the Tuareg Rallye, here is a video at Scrutineering:

He is a Classic British Eccentric!

Enjoy.
Love, light, and kindness,

Dave

Yeah, go John Young !

I know him slightly and have been following his "progress" (or not) with interest...

He's doing the Tuareg on a 50 year old Trident/Wasp outfit - if that rings any bells

He's a real legend when it comes to three cylinder Triumphs.
A couple of years ago he took his Explorer to the Himalayas, just to see how high he could ride it and how it coped with the altitude and extreme cold

John did not appear on Day 2 report but he's still in it but looking to gain experience for next time. Should we enter a Trophy next year?
