The Triumph Tiger 800XC is a pretty capable off-roader, but the magicians at Portland, Oregon custom shop Icon 1000 imagined one living a harder life in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Modeling their battle-ready revisions after that hardy desert denizen, the camel, they created the Dromedarii.

Stripped of its factory plastic bodywork, the Dromedarii wears full body armor, in the form of steel cages and plates to protect the vulnerable engine and drivetrain components from damage. 

Like everyone's favorite humped beast of burden, the Dromedarii carries fluids along with it, using a custom large-capacity fuel tank and a pair of auxiliary Rotopax racing-style fuel cells to ferry extra gas in explosion-resistant tanks. The ridiculously rugged bike is finished with load-bearing racks for carrying extra provisions.

Naturally, the suspension is upgraded to withstand such harsh duty, so stiffened Ohlins forks and stock forks, with a raised rear subframe for long rear suspension travel. Continental TKC80 tires are built to take plenty of abuse, and the PIAA xenon lights should help highlight tire-threatening road hazards in the badlands.
