Well, while I seriously doubt they'll be of much help, you might want to at least check with the Triumph dealer in Moscow, you never know. Here is their website:

Very impressive that you're trying to get the bike back on the road, best of luck to you.
Adventure is just another word for poor planning.

that frame crack is at the point of heat concentration-weakest point.

here is the FAA publication for repairs, the welding of steel tube ,paragraph 4-62 and on will give you all the details.

as far as the other repairs to your plastics it is there.

anyone else needing any type of pre-engineeered repair can look at this document for info.

I'll not repeat (hopefully) what everyone else has already said guys.

My opinion of you two is that you are selfish as hell because you have made the rest of the World see how adventurous they aren't!!

You have made the bond between the both of you even stronger for your future lives together, & one day when you're both settled down in a 'burb outside Brisbane (or Sydney or Perth or.....) with sensible jobs & 2.3 children & a mortgage & ..........................

Hopefully that will be in years to come, so you two enjoy your lifelong adventures together & just keep making the rest of us jealous!

+10 to all the comments of support and best wishes. If you guys could bottle and sell your fantastic attitude to life you would be millionaires. Scratch that - you already are millionaires if we count what is really important !!

Thanks Guys x

Thank you all so much for the comments of support, It's been a journey that we will never forget the fun times, the amazing scenery, the great people you meet along the way and the hard times are all part of this big adventure. We want to continue our trip on the Motor, it's just a great way to see the world.

That pipe is called a "PIPE, BREATHER DRAIN" per the parts diagram at . Sells for $9 from them.

Blimey, glad you two are OK. That's one tough old lump on your Tiger. Hopefully Triumph pulls through for you with parts and assistance. I like your chin up, chest out, can do attitude. Hang in there and good luck mates.

When the bike gets back on the road, you guys will have created a new sub-adventure bike class.
"The all new adventure surviver rat bike". The ticket into this exclusive class is the rider & pillion must have been thrown off a cliff and the bike must have done cartwheel after them, with the bike being rebuilt on a third word country with basic Stone Age tools.
Once you have made this club, all other 'Adventure' riders must give way, surrender cafe seat, offer last biscuit in the pack to you.

Love your work guys.
I've often thought that

just wondering if you kept the "cockpit" i mean the tach/speedo/ computer thingy with all the data lights on it. i know it was smashed... but.

i have a daytona 675 which i converted into a fighter. the bike would not run without that gauge cluster, it talks to the ECU.

im sure your mechanic can fix the hard parts. i wouldnt worry about that. i would worry about the computer crap.

if all else fails just ditch it and buy a local bike.
