I didn't get it either.

BTW, for those of you purchasing genuine Triumph accessories based upon price alone, www.madss.com usually offers a substantial discount and free shipping over $40. They offer that same sump guard for $169.99

Well, I made the trip back to AZ from Denver. 851 miles and I didn't go over Engineers Pass this time, but when I was heading to South Fork and seen the Lake City turn off it was on my mind. The bike ran like a dream, no issues and the Wolfman Luggage system was awesome. I will get a RR together over the next few days and post a couple of photos

What a fun ride it was.....

My dealer has 0 Tiger 800 accessories. I am sure they could get them. Wish I would have seen the madss site sooner.

Hey folks check your handguard / bar end weight bolts! I got home from a long highway ride in the evening, and the left side one fell out, taking the weight and washer with it.

Triumph warranty covered it.

who has ADVd the T800 (not the XC) and how does it do off-road? i'm comparing the 2012 strom to the T800.

i understand it's lower, but how do the cast wheels hold up to off-road terrain? seems most all of the XC protection plates/bars will fit the 800 too.
wheels are tubeless correct? what about fitting a 110-19" ADV tire up front vrs the stock 100-19"? is there a fender clearance issue?

Yes, it is indeed a roadie with the beak - to my eyes looked a little unfinished otherwise.

The small placard down by the rear wheel is a registration label, a temporary one in this case - Oz equivalent of a tax disc as someone rightly pointed out.

Cheers,
Hugh

My bad. I thought that was an 800XC with the mag wheels.

Forgive me, I wear tri-focals and have a small monitor on my computer

Great little video. Of interest to me as I've been to the factory ... but years ago. Interested that the guy said some motor parts now being produced in Thailand. Also ... when they talked about motor parts coming in from "outside sources" they never mentioned Japan. When I was there they said all engine internals come from ART of Japan. But perhaps now other items being made in Thailand.

I had stated before that Paint and injection molding plastic was to be moved to Thailand. This is what Triumph folks told me at the time. But the video showed painting still being done in UK. Not sure about ABS plastic moulding. It's very polluting ... and that was the reason stated as to why BOTH would be taken to Thailand.

The video shows things to be about 10 times busier with lots more bikes on the line from when I was there in 2003. Another world now. The other good news is NO jobs lost at Triumph due to running production in Thailand. In fact, last I heard Triumph were hiring. All good.

Long-time lurker here. Noobie poster though.

My question pertains to the 800 XC's possible luggage. I'd like to buy side carriers and a topcase STAT. I'd like to keep the cost under $1300. Me and my girl are preparing for a Halloween trip to Amsterdam and we need to haul some luggage. I prefer hard, waterproof cases vs. soft cases. I don't know if side-loading carriers or top-loading carriers are best. Any recommendations? I'd prefer if my XL Shoei helmet will fit in one of the three cases.

I live in Germany and the only luggage I've been able to see firsthand is the Givi stuff. I have a brochure for SW-Motech. I've never seen the official Triumph cases. Does Hepco & Becker make some? Touratech? Pelican?

Is their a front-runner for this? I'm hoping to place an order on Monday and have them installed on Thursday Any recommendations or advice you guys offer will be greatly appreciated.

I was just looking at an XC a few days ago and asking about luggage. The dealer said he wouldn't recommend the Triumph bags simply because they have had to warranty several bags already from the tabs breaking on simple tip overs.

Thanks for the tip. I remember reading that a couple months ago about the Triumph bags.

It depends on what you value. If you want cheap and extremely rugged, get the Caribou cases. http://cariboucases.com/store/?name=Home

With your timeframe being so short - I think you are going to have to get whatever is in stock at the local shops, though.

H&P and Touratech both make boxes for the Tiger since your in Germany i would look at Touratech first. They have local dealers might visit those first.
