Ex-SAS member. Worldwide head of the Boy Scouts, the only group dedicated to getting Pommie kids off of their asses. Broke his back in a parachute accident, was told he'd never walk again: two years later climbed Everest. Has silly names for his kid, no doubt in the Jonny Cash tradition so that they learn to fight.
Yes, the shows are staged. That might not even be real piss. But he's a damn sight cooler than a footballer whose voice never broke.

When they filmed the Skeleton Coast episode, local tour operators were contracted to bring in "props" from Walvis Bay, the piece of rope, washed up rowboat and so on. The tyre tracks in the sand was raked over. The areas where he started walking at sunup, (which is quite late in the morning at our west coast) and ended up at noon is actually almost a 100km apart. The apparent "heat exhaustion" would have been difficult considering they were 50 meters from the cold Atlantic with the  breeze coming from the west 99% of the year.

There is NO fresh water in that area, except for the riverbed seep pools, so the little puddle he "found" came out the back of a certain light brown Land Cruiser with Swakopmund plates on. They slept in four star luxury after a four course meal at the Cape Cross Lodge, and were flown in and out by helicopter, leased from an oil/gas exploration company. Catering on site was also handled in a fashion far removed from a bit of rotten seal. The chopper pilot I also knew well and his phone was confiscated for taking pics. They had to sign a hou jou bek agreement, but we all know how that works ou

And yet people watch the series, so I would guess it's those same people that Triumph is appealing to, to buy their product.

But wait, Steve McQueen also rode Triumph, so that makes him a dead Twatwaffle by association.  >:D

SAS, unlike certain SEALS nowadays, tend to not go for the publicity. It is a pretty big thing to lie about, though. Witness the "recce" on this forum who was taken to the cleaners. Now put him on global tv.

So just because we don't like his "reality" TV show we are not hard enough.... Erm, OK....  ::)

If he is so "hard" then why doesn't he strap on a GoPro and really go do it, without the help of his entourage.

But my biggest problem with his "Survival show" is his absolute retarded advise. If you really found yourself in a spot of bother and you decided to listen to that twats advise chances are you are going to die a slow and agonising death...

He always chooses the most dangerous route, you know... for the "show". If you jumped off everything he did or make makeshift ropes from leaves you will surely fall, break something and die. And don't get me started on his love for going down abandoned mineshaft and caves.... Why the @#$% would you think that is the best way to survive, "Oh look, a mine shaft! Surely the best way to find civilisation is down there!".

He is a entertainer, he does all his "stunts" for the camera.

Now Les Stroud is much "harder" than Grylls. He actually does seem to survive for a few days alone. It is still a show at the end of the day and I will never believe any of these hosts will ever be in real danger but Les shows how to conserve energy while trying to get food and shelter. Jumping off rocks won't get you saved.... It will get you killed.

Wat ek bly is oor is dat Triumph die fight na BMW toe bring.
Daai 2015 bikes het baie extra stuff in.  

Hulle lyk my volg BMW se marketing en model strategie.

BMW G650GS Sertao  =  
BMW F700GS =  Triumph Tiger 800 roadie
BMW F800GS = Triumph Tiger 800 XC
BMW F800GSA  = Triumph Tiger 800 XCX
BMW 1200GS  =  Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer
BMW 1200GS LC =  

Wonder wat die prys gaan wees op hulle.

None. Because the bear in question will be a man in a suit (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-471510/Latest-TV-fake-scenes-Grizzly-attack-survival-man-fancy-dress-bear-costume.html).

I'm trying to imagine a Bear Grylls TV show if they did everything the way people on this thread suggest it should be done. It would look a lot like some of the other shows where people genuinely do that stuff. And it would be boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring.
If I look at it from a TV producer side, it wouldn't work. Boring boring boring boring. A Ray Mears state of boredom. I don't watch TV to be bored. Let him stay in his fancy hotels. As long as the TV show is entertaining, I'll watch it. His list of off TV accolades should be proof enough that he is capable.

Ex-SAS member. Worldwide head of the Boy Scouts, the only group dedicated to getting Pommie kids off of their asses. Broke his back in a parachute accident, was told he'd never walk again: two years later climbed Everest. Has silly names for his kid, no doubt in the Jonny Cash tradition so that they learn to fight.
Yes, the shows are staged. That might not even be real piss. But he's a damn sight cooler than a footballer whose voice never broke.
PS: I still won't buy a Triumph.

+1  
Funny to see the real hardmen making the comments here. :snorting:


So just because we don't like his "reality" TV show we are not hard enough.... Erm, OK....  ::)

If he is so "hard" then why doesn't he strap on a GoPro and really go do it, without the help of his entourage.

But my biggest problem with his "Survival show" is his absolute retarded advise. If you really found yourself in a spot of bother and you decided to listen to that twats advise chances are you are going to die a slow and agonising death...

He always chooses the most dangerous route, you know... for the "show". If you jumped off everything he did or make makeshift ropes from leaves you will surely fall, break something and die. And don't get me started on his love for going down abandoned mineshaft and caves.... Why the @#$% would you think that is the best way to survive, "Oh look, a mine shaft! Surely the best way to find civilisation is down there!".

He is a entertainer, he does all his "stunts" for the camera.

Now Les Stroud is much "harder" than Grylls. He actually does seem to survive for a few days alone. It is still a show at the end of the day and I will never believe any of these hosts will ever be in real danger but Les shows how to conserve energy while trying to get food and shelter. Jumping off rocks won't get you saved.... It will get you killed.

Isnt that a good thing? His shows is meant for Mericans isn´t it? ;D

I have to think that he taking the piss (rather than drinking it), for a good laugh, because it has a mad following.

I dont have a tv so I haven´t watched any of his shows, except snippets in hotel lobbies that kind of thing. Jumping down mine shafts sounds really intelligent. :imaposer:

Do they have a warning at the beginning or the end not to try this at home? Maybe someone will get hurt... :eek: :peepwall:  


Still got to wonder about all the those getting pissed off because its not genuine enough or has teddy bears masquerading as real ones. Sounds like a lark. Bear Grylls must be loving it. And he gets paid for it. What a hoot.

BTW I never said anyone wasnt hard enough, but if the shoe fits ..... ;)

Always loved his show when I had access to tv and the program.
A lot to be learned on his program and a lot that he shared was indeed inline with former boys scout training as well as military reference
The fact that 'its not real' because he was sleeping in a hotel makes some people feel betrayed or jealous  ???
If he was not in the SAS he would have featured on the 'wall of shame'....and no, his name is not on the very wall.

Now I got a question for the judges on the thread; 'If you were in such a good level of fitness and shape, and got offered a role to share surviving techniques in a program that will be broadcast over the world, got to see places and have a blast of life while getting paid top dollar......what would you do?"

My humble answer: 'Yes thank you' but unfortunately I am not in the shape and condition as this blessed fella that is now contracted to make even more money by putting his face next to one of the best adventure bikes of modern times.

Well done Triumph!  :thumleft:

Ja look I have no opinion about Triumph, but I enjoy BG's TV show, the few times I've seen it.  

And I enjoy him as a person - he's obviously got a sense of humour and can actually do what he suggests - even if its high risk and perhaps stupid.

But I was equally disconcerted when it became known the show was staged.

But at the end of the day, I still enjoy his shows - actually its better now knowing that its staged because I can put some of his obvious high risk stunts into context.

For the guys calling him a wanker - why don't you try and do what he does?  Parachute out of a helicopter, jump off a cliff into a tree, eat some gross worm, jump into a freezing river and then make a fire with hands that wont work, etc etc.

Not only that, I mean why don't you try make yourself into a famous brand after breaking your back in a skydiving accident, by doing risky stuff on TV.  I'm sure its dead easy? Anyone of you could do it - naturally?

And while I'm told the Ray Meares is better advice - if I ever get into a survival situation, BG will be first on my mind (maybe as much for how not to do it, as how to  :biggrin:)

Any news on the launch or are they just going to continue as is by just putting the upgrade models on the floor?

I would like to read a full review on the upgraded models; things like heat on the legs compared to the old one (also an upgrade I think we will se at some stage on the 1190) as well as the new suspension although I just can't fault the old one to be honest. The only concern I have as they do not mention anything about it is the stepper motor....other than that the better fuel consumption alone will convince me to buy another one as the outgoing model was really thirsty!

Please post any links if or when you find it on the reviews  :thumleft:

Well said, sir. Although this thread should have been titled "Does Triumph need celebrity endorsements to sell their bikes?" , in order for a frank discussion. Is the leg heat such an issue? I thought it was more an F800 thing, given that the engine sits higher in the Beemer, with the fuel tank under the seat.

Yes it was quite an issue on warm summer days, I was touring in Mpumulanga when I really got aware of this. Triumph also listened to the owners and decided to do something about it. It must have been an issue in Europe as well since the XC800 is selling like hot cakes over there and I have read that they are even outselling the competition in some areas. I have recently also read an article in the Superbike magazine (love that mag) where they have tested a couple of DS bikes in the Alps. The 1190 came out as one of the favorites and only complain was also the heat.
So glad to see that the problem was addressed and would also like to see what the upgraded 1200 will be like as there were hardly any complaint on that bike other than too stiff suspension. I just could not get the setup right on the 1200 Explorer, not even with pillion and luggage although she was quite comfy.

So I was showing someone the new Tiger and then showed him that video.
I paused at the end where all the text is.....

"Triumph motorcycles are street machines. Triumph motorcycles are not for off-road use.
Triumph does not endorse or encourage the use of Triumph motorcycles off road."

If that's true I guess KTM and BMW doesn't have anything to worry about...

WTH kind of marketing is that? Bear Grylls riding the bike offroad thyen saying that?

Define the word 'off road'
is it a) off-tar
      b) off-any road surface (goat trails and off-road [enduro style] trails)

I am sure the real meaning is 'b' as they have launched the 800xc on gravel roads

Well here close to home is literally tar...then sand and dirt tracks. If I go off the road which I often try and do... it's right in there. So not sure TVB. I guess that definition would be up to Triumph's interpretation.  :patch:

Hmm.....their definition surely must be 'off road' as for in goat trails because their launch was on gravel and their official launch video was gravel all the way.

I used mine on gravel and goat trails and it performed flawless.

But who knows....maybe it is based on a European liability thing (end of the vid diclamer......)

Agree, don't makes sense though

I would rate that video to be a worldwide marketing push though.

A gravel road is still a road, just the surface material differs. Off road is just that, not on a road that was built.

Surely I can then argue a "2 spoor" is also still a road.
Maybe if it doesnt show on a GPS then it's not a road in their opinion?

But this bit then throws a spanner.
"Triumph motorcycles are street machines."

Street = Tar

False advertising with a disclaimer imho.
At the very least - kak advertising then.

I agree mate, k@k advertising.
However, you got to agree with me also; 'the XC is one hell of an off road machine and by off road I mean dirt as well as goat trails!
Just like it's German sister it has shamelessly copied it is a great bike to own and I would now seriously consider one again if I had the money!

100% agreed - I loved the Tiger when I took it for a test ride.
The guy whom I wanted to buy from even told me I could take it for a spin on gravel, I only took it on the side road gravel bit - I didn't want to fall and then have to buy it. it's a great bike but I really felt - in my inexperience admittedly - that the F800GS is more suited to go off the blacktop than the Tiger, even though the Tiger didn't feel bad at all and I don't think there is too much in it.
I just felt instantly more comfortable on the F800. It also feels a lot lighter than it is.  
It feels like a big pig of a dirtbike, whereas the Tiger feels like a big roadbike with longer suspension.  Don't know if that makes sense but thats how I felt comparing the test rides.

The Tiger to me felt better on road without a doubt (That engine is a gem and I loved the sound) and it had a better seat. But I wanted something while still being abe to do commuting, long highway stretches, pillion with luggage, but would be as much leaning towards offroad as I could find. My first choice was actually the KTM 690 Enduro R but, while it's obviously fantastic off-road it lacked in the pillion / touring department.
I'm glad to see Triumph claims to have done something with the fuel consumption because on my test ride I returned pretty bad figures

Sometimes when I ride long stretches on the highway I wonder if I shouldn't rather have gone for the Tiger...then when I get to the dirt or the commute all those thoughts disappear.

I agree with you that the Triumph and the F800GS is squarely pegged at the same buyer.
I still think...and this Video/Ad somehow drives the nail home for me even more for me, probably counter to what Triumph tries to convey -  that the buyer who is slightly more offroad bias will take the GS and the rider who is slightly more road bias will choose the Tiger.

I've seen that video where those riders take the Triumphs hardcore offroad and it's more than I'll ever be able to do
Both I reckon both bikes covers each area but they hit different sided of the bullseye.
