Kildareman - Great idea! Any pics of your re-route ? ScrambDaddy - perhaps you're correct - more will be revealed. But the 800 - 1200 class is getting pretty saturated for this economy. I'm not sure how much demand there will be for 1050's with all the other 'bling' out there. However - if they do discontinue Roadie - (this is the silver lining) should be some GREAT clearance deals on a very capable adventure machine.

Unbolt from stand bracket. Feed back under the engine and out from the wire guide. Then feed up the lhs to photo location. Zip tie to wiring loom behind it.

I hope you are correct Walter! I love my 1050 ... be nice to see a new, upgraded version.

I don't think so either because the Roadie is just that. i.e. a road bike. The new 1200 is a slightly different beast for a slightly different job. A case of keeping all bases covered. Also I read somewhere that the 1050 was THE best selling Tiger of the lot so they're hardly going to stop that unless the sales plummet.

Pic of foot peg please!!!

I need some help. I'm having some fitment issues with my happy trails SU racks. I need some pics of someones rear/pillion foot peg on the exhaust side. I need multiple views if possible. One pointing straight forward with the camera pretty close to the pipe, one from the top, and one from the side facing to the rear. I think mine might be bent. I don't see any stress cracks on any welds and it doesn't seem like the paint is cracking any where. While I was camping this last weekend my bike fell over in the middle of the night. I don't think it would have bent the peg but something just isn't right. Here is what I'm talking about. See how its slightly bulged out on the par of the peg closest to the pipe? It seems like it should be more straight.
Edit: after looking through several other pics I think its normal... hopefully someone can help me confirm.

Was that a real advertising slogan or something used by Triumph? Awesome!

Hope these show the view you are after--





Let me know if you any other angles.

Jerry - you're a good guy! fbj913 - what kind of fitment issues ? I mounted my SU / HT racks last week. Only issue I had was, on exhaust side, where the 2 bolts / nuts that go through the clamps that attatch to stanchion. One bolt (closest to the front of bike) is making slight contact with exhaust pipe. Will need to watch & remedy if any wear spot occurs. I might be able to bend rack frame slightly downward (1/16") to make a space - but didnt want to go "hacking" on anything just quite yet. I learned to "mull" a bit before I 'modify' things - sometimes there is a simpler answer to problems, than my first impulse at correction. Can send you pic from iphone if you provide email address.

Yep same problem I had. Exhaust side bolts dont fit. I talked to happy trails today and they are going to send me some different U brackets that are slightly thinner. They said 2 bikes that they have heard of so far have this issue. They think its a difference in vin numbers and where the frames were manufactured. true or not i dont know...
