in late 2013. Triumph will be coming out with an updated Tiger 1050. Single-sided swing arm. New headlights. More power, Ohlin suspension, ride by wire, etc.

Do not go KTM. You will be so much happier riding, rather than fixing, your bike...

Just my $0.02.

New suspension is good.
Probably my only real complaint on this bike.
Other than learning the hard way to sport a juicier battery &
better lights would be a def improvement.
Still a kick ass bike. IMHO.

Hello, i'm a jar of banana jam, not many people know about me, some say i'm an acquired taste.
Anyhow today i was busy checking my chain tension and decided to show my appreciation of this thread. The strawberry jam took the picture.
My only criticism would be there isn't enough fruit 'ere.

If you know someone who is with out bike because of financial need (ie a crash and cant replace) and shares the same passion as we all do here, PLEASE PM ME, (NOT PUT IT IN THE THREAD) with the qualifying info.

Thanks

Been awhile lady. Doesn't mean I've not been keeping up on you though. It seems to me you're avoiding the question, so I'm gonna' re-state it in a more formal way:

1. Why are you giving away your trusted steed?

2. Are you going to be purchasing another bike?

3. If yes, what?

4. If no, see # 1

A Peach without a bike is just wrong. the foundations of the earth might just crumble. You wouldn't want that now would you?

At this point in time,
my best and only answer,
other than what I have already stated,
is : I'm not sure.

Did you give it away or keep it?

Don't matter I reckon

Whatever you choose you're still gonna be the Darth Peach bringing us the pics and stories that have made you famous. (at least to us)

It ain't what ya ride, it's why ya ride that counts.

I anxiously await further details to this latest saga...
