so when is this new Triumph supposed to be available? I heard a rumor that BMW may bring in a limited number of F800R's and I wondered how they would compare with the street version of the Triumph 800.

I am guessing the Triumph would have a lower price and greater luggage capacity, but the BMW has ABS, and it looks like a lot of fun to ride.

If I were one of the design gods that received the revelation of the tiger and had been tasked with bringing it to the world... would I rather have a group of pre-proselytes that quibbled about hydraulic clutches and whether the strom was a good off road bike or would I appreciate the genius of those who have caught the vision and spirit of the true bike of all bikes?

Argumentative pocket protector/calculator/coke bottle glassess/dandruff imbued ne'er-do-wells or witty, literary, imaginative, well read chick magnets with big vocabularies and big hearts?


just sayin'

Ya know it's funny, I hate the itching, but I don't mind the swelling.

..ahem... The Book of The Tiger, Chapter 8, Verse 21 thru 22:

"And The Tiger's form shall be infinite and all encompassing, and all that ever was and all that is or ever will be shall be cast down and trodden underneath the wheels of The Tiger and assimilated. Resistance is futile."
Pardon my lack of technical knowledge, but what kind of lubrication will this require?
How often will it need to be changed?
Will there be a level window?

How often will it need to be changed? See above.

Will there be a level window? See above.

The Tiger is within us; The Tiger surrounds us.
Part of it may be sensed, and is called manifestation.
Part of it is unseen,
And is called void.

To be with The Tiger is harmony.
To separate from The Tiger is disaster.
To act with The Tiger, observe and follow.
To know The Tiger, be still and look within.

Prey passes The Tiger which
Sometimes merely looks,
Sometimes pounces without hesitation,
But never fails to act.

The Tiger will make the crooked straight,
Make the straight to flow.
It will gather water, fire and light.
It will bring the world to a single point.

The Tiger is the road up your spine.
The Tiger is the road of your life.
The Tiger is the road of the cosmos.

As long as the sun rises,
And your heart beats,
The Tiger is at hand.

What actually happens is, when the bike tips over, the Earth moves the hell out of the way, thus creating the illusion that the bike is equipped with some sort of gyro stabilization device.
Ahhh, so this explains that old Chinese proverb "He who rides a Tiger is afraid to dismount."

Folks, I am writng to say that as of today, September 30, 2010 at 5:31 pm PDST, the Hardcore thread has officially jumped the shark. It's been coming for a couple of days now - the rancor, the infighting, the intercine rivalries, et cetera - and today marked the end.

Friends, I am not writing because of their demise. No, that came as no surprise and brought me no joy. Rather, I am writing to thank you, one and all, for keeping a positive attitude; one that flowed like a sparking stream of inspiration and faith through a forest of uncertainty. One that proved we can all hold our head high knowing we took the high road.

Thank you. Thank you, indeed.

And now, back to discussing the marvelous, the fabulous, the best motorcycle ever: the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS!
