And simply Awesome!

I hope the suspension isn't shit and it isn't too heavy... typical usual Triumph faults. It'd be great if it wasn't sized for a munchkin too.

I can't wait to smoke a GS. Good thing I couldn't spend my money on a KTM Adventure 690 this year. This bike is going to kick all ass.

New spy shots are now available! It seems the Tiger 800's appearance is as advanced as its engine. The new bike's appearance is relativisticly expectationally subjectivized via new techniques developed in the Lucas laboratories. Thus the new tiger will appear exactly as you expect it to on a subconscious level. Using self-bit-rewriting coding we're able to bring you the following picture which will adapt itself to approximate your own relativistic subjective view of the Tiger 800.



My god... it's all I've ever dreamed of and it has a note from Daddy saying that I wasn't a disappointment after all! This bike has filled the empty holes in my soul!

Even though I am old and jaded, I never cease to be amazed at the stuff I learn on this site. Thank you.

One thing i have notice, i haven't read all the threads so it may have been said, but that side stand If it's the same as the 1050 it's like a tooth pick just waiting to sink in.

Thumb Could this be "the bike" ?

I've been lurking around the V-Strom picture thread for eons, thinking that the Suzuki 650 was the best overall bike for my wants and needs ... but I've got friends who have Tigers and they (the Tigers) just look so darn good! I had a 1969 Triumph Trophy 250 a long time ago, and if this new bike is any more reliable, then it could be "the bike" for me! How to make such a decision? Wait and see... and test ride, I suppose.

wait, no remote pre-load adjuster? Isn't that a given on adventure bikes?
