Also, I'm thinking that at the time of purchase I will add a center stand and the additional front lights. Are there any aftermarket options to consider for those two items or should I stick with ones made by Triumph? Are there any additional accessories that you would suggest? Any other issues or concerns I should be thinking about for day of delivery? Many thanks! Will keep you posted.
There is no difference between the 2012's and the 2013's, sans the matte green color replacing orange....

Need a recommendation for an online USA source for Triumph Tiger 800 parts. Would like to have parts diagrams, accessories, prices, and online ordering capability.

Anyone?

My XC does the same thing on washboard rd. FWIW, I read a few forums on Triumph Rat Net where some folks have isolated and attributed it to "chain slap" on the protector in the low RPM range when the tension is lower. Buggers the hell out of me.

Good write up, I went into BMW with the intention of buying the 800gs but eventually bit on the XC after multiple test rides...not disappointed at in the bike. Just wish there was more a community like BMW has.

Congrats on your purchase.
Centre stand.....some people like the SWmotech one. I, however, have the Triumph one and it works OK. http://shop.sw-motech.com/lshop,show...nterstand,.htm Just beware that the 800 & 800XC are different.

Extra lights.......the Triumph ones have been prone to moisture ingress and intermittent failures. They replace them under the warranty. Some have fitted Denali or similar instead. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/denal...-and-m10-mount or http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/co...typid=87077378

Also, if you intend to use it on dirt roads, a decent bash plate is a must. I'd recommened the SWmotech one as it comes up high enough to protect the oil filter. And, there's enough room to change that filter without removing it. http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/co...typid=87077272

Decent hand guards.......don't buy the T800XC ones as they're crap. If you're buying an XC just change them ASAP. These are rebadged BarkBusters......http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/co...typid=87074797

Of course, most of that you'll have to fit yourself but, apart from the lights, its' all quite simple. And now that I've emptied your wallet, I'm off to make a coffee.

Is anyone using the new Moose skid plate? I would love to see some better pics of it. It seems to have very good coverage for the suspension knuckle in the rear and looks reasonably strong overall. Great price too.

In addition to the other suggestions, the Happy Trails crash bars are the best I've seen. Tyson sure has given them a workout.

That's good to know.

ALT Rider offers a pretty serious piece.

Congratulations!!!

That is a beautiful bike!

Better than the FJR? That's difficult to believe, but I'll take your word for it. That Triumph must be a fantastic bike! In a year or two, I'll be looking at one.

Well, that picture is not a Tigger (800GS I think) so it's hard to say how good the Tigger version is. I will say the SW Motech skid plate has a similar setup at the rear to protect the knuckle.

FJR has a smooth engine, but feels like riding a dinosaur now.
