For anyone that's interested Frontline Motorsports in Christiansburg Virginia has a white 2012 (dark frame) Tiger 800 on the showroom floor with nobody's name on it.


I had to take my ancient, out of date, 2011 model in for it's break in service today and saw it there.


However if you can stand the wait I'm sure in a couple more weeks they'll have newer 2013 models available.

Sorry, I forgot to ask if it has ABS.

I can see abs rings so yes it does

I can't, not even after blowing the picture up. All I can see is the black centre of the disc. Just been out to look at mine and compared it to the photo. The picture is not really high enough definition to be certain though.

rode one today, and wanted to love it. motor is an absolute peach. ergonics are really weird for me. long reach to the bars and when stnding it feels like your hunched over the front....... Im sure bar risers would help , but the bars need to be back more than anything.

my ktm felt like a big 525 from the word go.......it was great.
this bike kinda felt like a awkward street bike with dual sport intentions.

did I mention the motor was fantasic.....leave a stoplight and throw it in 4th,,,, hell 6th if you want and it will pull smoothly throught the powerband.
and it has plenty of power, torques through the mid and has zap on top.

still not sure how well itd do on the dirt.....that combined with the ergononics killed most of the want I had for the bike.

I picked up my first new bike last night, 2011 white TIGER 800 XC. Got her out this morning to get a feel of her and LUV it! I imagine this bike will be hard to beat, being it's my first bike that I can call my own. The motor is plain insane, so much power with a flick of the wrist delivered so smoothly. I couldn't be more happier with my choice and purchase. Aall I need to do now is figure out my luggage assortment.......hmmm.

Picked up my black ABS Roadie today. About 110 miles ride home in the sunshine over the Snake pass. I am so happy with it. The bike is just so light and responsive compared to my previous ones (S3 and Scram) Engine just wants to rev and it was quite hard to hold back to the 5k for 300 miles limit.

oh and its an almost perfect fit for me (6 ft 32" inseam) with the seat in high position.

If you want a gripe? the hand guards are odd, only cover the lower part of my hand, nothing like the 1050 tiger ones I put on the Scram.I am so impressed I am wondering I will keep the scram as I had intended.

Now what???

Picked up the white ABS roadie yesterday. Already love the engine, it's my fourth Triumph triple. My burning question today is what to do about luggage for an upcoming trip. Don't really like any of the hard case options so far, but the exhaust can is high, fat and contacts both my sets of soft luggage.

Has anyone else found a set of soft luggage that works with the current exhaust?

My thoughts are to either change the route of the exhaust and run the can lower, or the Remus dealer says their Carbon Hexacone would stay cool enough that it wouldn't melt soft bags. The additional benefit is that it might sound really great.

What else have people tried so far?

Paul

I m going to go with the Expedition Dry bags and rack from Wolfman on my XC - but that may be too adventurous for the roadie ...
