Ted Simon's Triumph Tiger 100

Name: Tiger 100 (Ted Simon)
Make: Triumph
Year: 1973

The ‘Transworld Trumpet’ is one of the most celebrated motorcycles in existence. In 1973 Ted Simon embarked on an epic ‘round the world’ journey, covering 50,000 miles in four years. He has since written two superb books on his fascinating adventures ‘Jupiter’s Travels’ and its sequel ‘Riding High’.

This machine has been retained in the condition that it was in when it finally returned to England in 1978 -  the pannier on the off-side of the motorcycle still carries the map showing the route taken.

Ted Simon personally rode this machine to the Museum soon after returning from his travels and very generously donated it to the collection.
