The APC Rally has fast become an event of great interest to adventure riders. Offering a challenging 14 day course the rally covers over 7,500km passing through some of the best scenery and tracks the country has to offer from the Eastern seaboard mountain ranges to the wide open deserts of outback Australia.

The rally has attracted a range of riders; their artillery ranging from 250cc enduro machines to 1200cc adventure tourers. As a result, a consistent question has arisen 'What is the perfect bike for long and diverse adventure touring?'

For one of Australia's motor-sporting greats, GP Winner and SPEED TV presenter Kevin Magee, the answer is Triumph's Tiger 800 XC.

Magee, a Speed Triple owner, having never completed such an extraordinary rally is keen to get out there and experience Australia in this unique and exclusive event. "I've done my share of both road and off road riding, I've spent minimal time on true adventure touring machines and this rally just screams excitement. I followed the event last year with great interest. I saw from around the traps what people were riding and how the bikes were setup. The Tiger 800 XC spec seemed like just the right mix, great payload for carrying the essential hardware; tools, luggage, fuel, camping gear etc. I've recently ridden the XC and I loved the power on the dirt, the bold excel rims and the thumping 800cc power just does it for me. I can't wait to get out there. We're bringing along the team from SPEED TV and we'll be delivering the highlights into your living room in upcoming episodes."

The team at Triumph Australia have contacted Magee and will be following their progress closely around the circuit. To keep up to date during the rally tune into
