Happy Valentines Day!
From the look of your recent pictures, you've certainly had better weather for riding than we do here!! Oh well, some of my riding gear is in for repairs, so at least the pouring rain keeps me from riding non-ATGATT...
Cheers.

You are right, Tiger is one of the best bikes that I ever rode. I love my Tiger.
Thanks for great pictures and reports.

It's a bit of a ballet dance with the clutch and the throttle in some of the deeper turns to work with the mushy stock suspension at times, but it's what keeps this bike so dear to me.. TOTALLY predictable.
So much fun to ride!

Yep you said it DP, The Tiger 1050 is like a reliable friend....Always there for ya. I love my Tiger1050. I just put gas in it and change the oil....Also, I put in the Ohlin rear suspension that Triumph now sells and its like a totally new bike. The soft mushy ride (good for long distance cruising) is gone. Its a total canyon ripper now!

I just lurrrv dat BIKE!

You have to say that you actually like riding that tricycle.

that would be my guess as well (wouldn't be like riding the Tiger.......)

and btw - Ohlins has a "cheap" shock for our kitty cats now....one on ebay for between $6-700 - no preload adjustment iirc
