Touratech has the front fender riser. They have picture of the Tiger with tons of stuff on it, but not much for sale yet. I am sure its coming.

Did you read the comments? Someone said they would like to see the road version have a belt drive instead of the chain. For a bike that will seldom, if ever, see any har core off-road use, that would be a great idea!

I wouldn't look for s belt any time soon, at least not on any Tiger. Heck, their 100% road bikes don't even get s belt, save for the "need to compete against Harley" Thunderbird.

what about a shaft for the Street? But to be honest we have the BMWF650GS and with a little mods have made this a very decent off road bike...the BMW1200GS has a shaft and yeah it adds cost and weight but would be interesting to see this added to some of the smaller CC ADV bikes...

Well guys, I can report that the ABS on the new Tiger works flawlessly.

It paid for itself yesterday when a big box truck suddenly pulled out directly in front of me, blocking all four lanes of traffic. The resulting hard braking made the ABS kick in, and it did so seamlessly.

I'm glad I waited for it!

Now I need to get a louder horn. Stebel Nautilus time...

Now that would make me VERY HAPPY!

Shaft drive will come in 2013 with the R12GS clone, shortly after the shaft drive sport tourer to be unvailed later this year.

I plan to order an XC crossover brake line for my standard 800 so that I can space the fender up for TKC-80's. On the road biased tiger there is no extra clearance between the fender and the cross over line.

I just got off the phone with the ST Louis dealer looking for a KTM 990 Adventure and tried to sell me a white XC that either just got in or is about to come in and sounded as though it was unspoken for at this time for those you still looking for a tiger.

Of course, it won't be backordered because TouraTrinket never does that. Better get your order in ASAP.

Av Mech,

When are you coming back to Boise? I am dying to see one of these things in the flesh. Have fun with it.

I called Moto Tech and they said they're in discussions with Triumph, but couldn't say if they were becoming a dealer.
