The only hesitation I have is I'm hoping for a Tiger Cub with that drivetrain.....

Don't hold out for it. Although Triumph are working on a Cub there isn't a release planned yet. Let's just say that 2009 builds don't have it listed.

No place to mount them on the Duc.

Nice Site

Nice site, I too have an affinity for Triumphs.

I got hooked on Avrider in my quest to find an all-around bike (and a bicycle rack for a motorcycle). I was looking into a KLR or DR650. Then I figured I had one in the garage. Bought a set of racks for a spring tour like these:



and replaced the clip-ons for a little more comfort on long days:




Still want to get back to a cafe look so still would like a second bike. If Triumph doesn't come out with a Tiger Cub (based on the 675) then there are a few choices; BMW 800GS, DR650 or... a KTM 650/690 Adventure...

Nice!

Gatling, nice “fascination with the greatest motorcycles in the world”.

Your page is very informative and enjoyable.
Nice job with pics and descriptions.

I share your love for the Tiger 955i. I own a black 2006. I’m hooked!

“…another great trip. Great roads, great weather, great bikes, great food, and great traveling companions. The roads are easily the most impressive set of twisties I've ever encountered".

What else can we ask for?

Thank you and everyone else who responded. I'm glad you enjoyed the page.

I have another much shorter one coming up that's an e-mail exchange between me and a friend on our reaction to the Suzuki B-King.

Quoted from your site:

"I'm convinced that Triumph makes the best modern bikes in the world, with performance, panache, and personality."


Couldn't agree more. Beautiful bikes.

I'll take a Speed Triple, a Tiger and a Street Triple to go with my Bonneville please.

Nicely done.

Thanks again for your kind words. You've probably already seen the photos I posted over on a thread I started about the Bud Ekins memorial service, but here they are again. This is a new model of the Scrambler coming out in 2009, the Bud Ekins model....




And this is the 1962 Tiger that Bud Ekins used for the jump scene in "The Great Escape..."


Triumph has a lot of momentum right now, which I think is a good thing. And here's a shameless plug for the folks who have taken good care of me.. over at www.douglasmotorcycles.com in San Bernardino. When you are out this way you gotta stop in and see these guys.

That is just awesome. Great color scheme; tank is just like the '66. Didn't know anyone was doing this. Saw some neat custom Triumphs at the Long Beach show this weekend; I'll post some photos later.

Thanks for telling us about this place.

No problem. I always enjoy seeing the bike scene on your side of the water. Nice to be able to pass something on for a change.

Windy corner had a Scrambler in the workshop last time I was in. They are giving it the 60s retro look. It looks great and should appear on their website before long.

Some lovely bikes there. The Triumph roadsters are not my thing, but I can see why people like them.
