the hardcore accessories are surprisingly large. In fact the internal volume is magically larger than the exterior dimensions.

quantum reality/magic... you know

A small misconception, but not too far off the mark. The wizards merely assembly the final product.

The Tiger's engines are forged on the anvils of the Iron Mountain Dwarves, far beneath the earth in caverns deep, lit by the light of the fires of the Earth itself. The steady ringing of mighty hammers rythmically echo as the sparks fly as glowing metal is pounded into shape, steam surges forth as the hot metal is cooled in water. A keen eye appraises each shape, each curve of the metal, and brings it to life with powerful blows of the hammer as it is created on the anvils of the Dwarves, each piece endowed with the artistry and magic of these denizens of the Earths depths.


Or it could be a factory in England somewhere, but who would believe that?

Rumor has it that years ago a Triumph engineer found a medium sized handbag in a field during a test ride of a motorcycle. The bag was completely empty and the only identification on it were the initials "M. P." embroidered in the space between one of the handles. Intending to bring it home as a gift for his wife, he strapped it to the bike. Unfortunately, British roads being what they are, the bag fell from the bike, and a hatrack, floor lamp, small tree, and several spoonfuls of sugar spilt from the bag. The confused engineer took the bag straight to the Triumph R&D facilities. The bag has never been seen since.

Looks like they've done some reverse engineering and put the magical capabilities of that bag into the Tiger's hard cases.

No. No there isn't. Nor will there be. Ever. There can never be any recorded true images of the Tiger 800.

Religious sects across the globe have gone millennia without ever seeing a photo of their god, heaven, or angels, and yet you don't see them complaining!


Pictures? HAH! Who needs pictures?

Anybody know how to get hold of Leonardo?
Maybe he could do up another shroud. His last one has been in the headlines regularly for the last 400 or 500 years. I bet Triumph would be wrapt at the publicity when the mystical Shroud of Tiger Cub was revealed.

I could have sworn I saw one on the road yesterday. I just caught the blur out of the corner of my eye.

So I hopped on my bike and hoped I could catch up. I got lucky because I hit all green lights and the target got stopped at a red light. It was strange the way the lights changed. But I just figured the freak meteor shower combining with the rare occurrence of the Aurora Borealis being visible in Virginia created some strange electrical effect to trigger the lights. But I digress.

Anyway, it turned out it wasn't the new Tiger at all. It was simply a Leprechaun riding a Unicorn. I guess my speeding into the area must have caused some commotion because the car next to me at the light (a Shelby Cobra occupied by Megan Fox and Jennifer Love Hewitt) asked if I needed anything and then kept blathering on and on about having a threesome.

I could barely drive back home through the tears in my eyes.

What a disappointing day.

Oh no! It's as I've predicted! The prophecy is coming true: those unable to wait to bask in glory that is the Tiger, will buy a lessor bike instead, and forever live in dispair and disappointment.

Repent now, for the end is nigh!!
