finally added another bike to the stable

so i have had two klr650s and two xr600r dual sported motorbikes liked them but sold them and wanted to replace them with something .. well today i got something else i have always wanted

ok so ever since i laid eyes on a triumph tiger i have alwayse wanted one .. and not the 1050 version .. now the new ones are sexy but there is something aobut the olderones that makes me giddy.. so i was checking out the clasifieds on craigslist and i saw one .. cheap .. salvage title .. and in great condition .. no scratches on anything except the exhaust muffler and the crash bars .. whoot only 36000 miles
so i said woah and my wife said "what" i showed her and she said " if you want it ill make it happen " so now i have a second triumph to add to the stable

lol .. and here i was thinking i should add them .. but then my wife who said i could buy it ( she is my banker and $$$ handler) said it looks sexy as it is lol ... as far color .. and looks .

me i was almost thinking i could paint it the same red as my other triumph but then i re look at these pics and go naaaa lol...

now to sort out the tripple tree situation ( its a little off (salvage title)) and then skid plate and adjust the clutch as it is slipping a smidge when i go braaaapppp

well i tore into the bike today .. got the front end aligned just right .. but i found a leaking fork seal ... when disassembling the forks i found a compression crack on the fork body and its a bad one .. but rather than rebuild them and hope that the crack holds back everything and doesn't blow out .. for the same price as rebuilding i bought a newer set that has already been rebuilt and is in perfect condition .. so once they arrive they will get put in and i should be back on the road again
