Thanks for all the responses everyone. I'm awaiting a call from my local Triumph dealer on an 800xc OTD price. My goals for this bike is simple, everyday commuter and fun bike. Ill keep the 4runner for the crap days and hauling my dogs. BTW the mpg on my 4runner is 19 .

I like that point!
I just got an OTD price which I think is very fair. Looks like there is a Tiger on my near future!

That's not bad as I have an 800XC and my second is a built Jeep Wrangler getting 13mpg.... I use the bike whenever I can in IL.

Just wondering if anyone else notices this in colder temps.
Both, my Daytona 675 and Tiger 1050 made/make that noise. Valves were/are all in spec. I ran/run the specified viscosity oil. The Daytona had nearly 3500 track miles on it and was ridden nearly year-'round. I ride the Tiger, year-'round. I wouldn't worry about a little valve clatter, upon start up. Once things get warmed up a bit, valve tolerances tighten.

For what it's worth, mine started making that startup clatter at about 6,000 miles. It irritated me, so I followed the procedure in the manual for removing the tensioner. Looking at it, I saw that the resister ring (the piece tht holds the plunger in place in absence of oil pressure) was out of position. I reset the ring and reinstalled the tensioner and no more noise.

That's not the new format, it's the old format. An admin probably accidentally changed the default.

Some features aren't available in some of the layouts. I use "Fresh" as I can't stand switching between black background + bright text and bright background + black text in other apps.

For example you can't add people to the "ignore list" in Fresh.
