Get Your Yellow Tigers Now

Rumor, strong rumor, has it that entire production of yellow Tigers is sold out from Triumph and the distributors.

If you have it in your head to get a yellow Tiger, time to act is now.

Yellow is the color,
Of the Tiger which
Is not mellow.

Hurry. Don't say I didn't warn you if you have to settle for a blue.

Thumbs down paper tiger

all 1050 tigers come standard with

soft springs
oil leaks
water leaks
bad starter relays
out of round wheels
bad gear box lash
chain lash
poor headlights
poor shift action
weak clutch
bad gas gauge
no dealer support-and more engine failers than all brands combined!

He's talking 'bout Yellow, I thought Orange and Red were the colors of flame?

Just to clarify something. You went and said "all". Funny how we don't have a bunch of 1050 Tiger owners screaming "foul"

don't blame the collective. triumphs are ok with us. i actually looked at one. as a group we have nothing against other bikes, we just prefer our stroms. actually i'd love to have a subscription where i could switch bikes every month. but i'd still likely keep my wee.

carry on with your bickering....
