About what attachments to get? Given you live in town you probably don't need the ag or oil spill cleaning up stuff.

Did that help?

So far I know:

1) Its motor does the business offroad.

2) It has a steel frame, which you need.

Well said. It will soon become apparent that this bike is the single most important development in human history. Some may point to the wheel, the printing press, sewing machines, sliced bread, salted chips, the internet or even canned beer (ok, we may draw the line there) but the point is, these milestones will pale (or pail) in comparison once the full dimensions and capabilities of the Triumph Tiger 800 DS are fully realised. I heard today from my dealer that NASA has a number of these ordered due to their reusable spacecraft capabilities. Also, the time travel option will be locked out until each owner gains the proper certification.

I heard that only solar powered holographic license plates, marked in Greek letters, are to be fitted on this bike. Special issue from the ministry of universal transportation and NASA. Extra care will be taken to protect against duplication of future space program license plate designations.

What I know, from a reliable source, is that instead of spokes, the tiger 800 uses gravity repulsors in the hub.

And that it has an ejector seat.

Talking Oooops!

Apparently road testing has been halted for minor repairs after the quantum thrust manifolds sucked Shrodingers cat out of a parallell universe and ran over it. Yes it really is dead.

Reading the entire link occasioned some paws for thought on my part. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say "thank you" for your post.

Just in!

Japan is the latest national government to denounce the Tiger 800 DS, stating that the new bike, "Threatened national sovereignty by imitating bikes made by japanese manufacturers in cartoons."

Triumph countered the allegations by stating that due to Bosun particle quantum narrative meta-mechanics the Tiger 800 is not a copy of other motorcycles, but is in a very literal sense all motorcycles at once.

Japan was unwavering however and promised that all Tiger 800s would be attacked by their fleet of giant fighting robots.

Triumph's marketing department notes that the 800 DS can in fact turn into a suit of powered robot armor whose capabilities are more than adequate to dealing with all but the most severe giant robot attacks.

Robot mode is covered in the manual between "Unified Field Theory Explained" and "Onboard Whiskey Distillery"

I was skeptical when they announced the "Roll Chart Necronomicon", but I simply must draw the line at this.

I will continue to look to England for my motorcycles, but (despite their many achievements) the English have never distilled a drinkable whisky.

Ferrous Frame?

The main winding is of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots in the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a nonreversible treme pipe to the differential girdlespring on the 'up' end of the grammeters. Therefore we shouldn't have any trouble running plenty of heated gear, electronics, and accessory lighting.

Undoubtedly, the Tiger Cub's new engine has now reached a very high level of technical development. It has been successfully used for operating nofer trunnions. In addition, whenever a barescent skor motion is required, it may be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocating dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

Somewhere I read there is a steel frame??? What???
