Hello together,
here, the picture of a near to original 1981 Triumph Tiger Trail should appear. But I'm a bit suspicious about that appearance ...
Why I rate it better than Grizzly Bear's Scrambler (without talking his bike down in any aspect, I'm a dedicated follower of the Scrambler's thread in this forum!): the old yellow bike looks very good, it's got less than 180 kgs with a full petrol tank and all oil on board and so 42 bhp is enough! It's drawbacks? You have to limit your cruising-speed to 100 km/h or you start loosing bits and pieces of the bike ...
In case, that the picture's not appearing - what I fear, will happen - I ask anybody with a pic of this bike on her's/his computer to mend my failure.
Thanks a lot and kind regards, Bambi
PS: As I feared: no picture. A bit more of the story: I own one of these from new in 1981 and I fell in love with it much faster than with my wife (she accepts this term and laughs about it).
