That bike will do the Kessel Run in like 11 parsecs. It ain't like dustin' crops, boy.

Au contaire, my friend. Kessler's blended whisky is as smooth as the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS sweeping through a banked corner at Nurburgring.

I was reading some literature from the dealer today about the new tiger 800 that said that one goal of the design team was to provide relief for local farms by providing a do-all kind of machine that farmers could use. With that in mind, some of the accessories available will be seeding and tillage attachments as well as combine, various harvesters and even a revolutionary new "cotton gin in a pannier" for small textile operations.

Those lovely brits thought of everything!!! This is sublimely cathartic/orgasmic for me. I can hardly wait!!!!!

I'm drawing the line here.

The Triumph Tiger 800 DS is not Hitler's GS.

Don't listen to the haters, ganze! People were suspicious of electricity, indoor plumbing, gas heat, and automibiles when they came out too.

no one can deter my single minded focus to partake in the joy of the single most important event to that will have happened in human history: the release of this very existence altering motorcycle.

That it can help in the garden is just a bonus, that's all.

You sir, are a trouper for sure. If you ever filled out your profile, I'd know where to meet you so I could buy you a beer!

BTW, too late to help now, but the bike also comes with attachments that clean up oil spills without harming sea birds and baby turtles.

Yup, they are working at it right now - another rig blew up today.

For a beer, I may fill out my profile.

Thanks to you for keeping this, the only truly informative, tiger thread going.

As long as by "sweeping" you mean "cartwheeling", I agree.

Come on Triumph, you are giving the entire world blueballs already!

The same type of thing happens with the Triumph Tiger 800 DS. Its speed is such that we can only pick up fragments of the entire bike, depending on whetehr the wavelengths are decoded by our eyes and brain. I reckon the only folks that will be able to accurately see the bike sweeping through a turn are those that have high speed cameras capable of viewing, say, a 22-250 bullet in flight.

Let me know if you need any more help with this.
