Thanks,

I am not going to get a top box at this time. I have had may heart set on the Holan Panniers but could not pass up this bike with the Triumph panniers. I will give them a try and either keep them or sell them so if anyone is interested, let me know. I am also thinking of selling the Triumph Crash bars as I was thinking of a set of Holans which protect the Radiator more.

I plan to buy a Dry bag for the camping gear, either Wolfman, Ortlieb or Twsted Throttle Dry Spec but am not sure which one is best. Opinions welcomed!

Accessories it came with: Arrow Exhaust & tune, sump guard,protection bars, hard bags, center stand, small tank bag, paint protection kit, Headlight Protector.

Accessories to buy: Heated Grips, Aux Light Kit, Aux Socket, Tall adjustable windshield, fender raise kit.

The fun begins now


Here are a couple of pics:
Very Nice !!

Could you tell me what that includes, their website is confusing as to what you are getting or I'm just a dense old fart, ya that's probabley it.
I'm looking for side racks that I can mount soft bags to.

Possible. I don't have a Tiger, therefore no real comparison of what's possible with regard to tilting the screen ...

These will work with hard or soft bags.

No it doesn't. Nothing like it. The stock screen come down the side of the lights. Have you never looked at yours?
Looks to me like either the Speed triple fly screen or as cug suggests the Street Triple one with the extra screen on top.

Just did my 6,000 mile maintenance and installed the Amsoil juice in the Tiger. Best mod so far in my opinion.

Today Ride

I took the Tiger out today for a little journey in the Bradshaw Mountains north of Phoenix and it was quite a ride to say the least. I was really able to put this bike to the test and it did not dissapoint. Here are a few photos from the day.

After heading down a nasty, deep sand and rocky wash, we stopped for a break and to enjoy the scenery.

This was the direction we were headed


The we came to this rocky little climb that I was not ready for but gassed it, and then stopped for the photo op


Close up


another climb to go up


another close up


and this is the hill that we came down, it was really steep in areas and very nasty. I was glad that we were not going to go back up the same way.

This ride today was about 130 miles door to door with about 75 miles on the trail with a few miles of dirt roads thrown in. I installed 20mm worth of bar risers but need to roll the handle bars forward a little and I think it will be perfect for me. The foot pegs on this machine SUCK, and I will continue to find something else to swap them out with. The one huge factor that would have helped me today is to go down a tooth on the counter shaft sprocket. There were a few times that I was really slipping the clutch. Other then these few small items the bike performed very well.
