I didn't realize though, that the 1050 only burns one headlight at a time. One more reason to be happy with the '06 and it's glass lenses.
One, two...they're both what one might technically refer to as "not so great"...or "horrible"...or "crap" eeeven.

My buddy from PA and me from AZ met in Amarillo TX at a friends house.
Here's our Tiger's at the Pala Duro Canyon South of Amarillo.



The blue one's mine. I did 837 miles in 13.2 hours the first day out.

You can get a Twinlight Driver to fix that.

I have one...works like a champ...no issues...at all. Simple, effective, 15 min install and improves the stock lights. Of course I have driving lights as well.

Well worth the money AND the first farkle I did. The stock lights on the Tiger just flat suck!!!!!!!!!! This coming from a guy that just flat LOVES my Tiger. So there ya go.

If anybody in the Phoenix metro gets a twinlight driver...yell...I'll help with the install and you won't even need to buy me a beer.

Picked it up a few days ago. As a recovering strom owner, I love this bike! It is replacing my FJR which was nice but I found it heavy and kinda hot (not in a good way).

Triples rock!

You mean like this?



Or maybe you meant like this?



Oh, I know, like this.



Yeah, Colorado scenery really sucks. You don't want to ride here.

Well only if you don't want to drop about 2,000 feet over the side, otherwise you can ignore them if you like.

I had a stock bulb bust somehow on the left side so I stuck in a 90/100W bulb I had sitting around. Brights plus the $20 Hellas from rallylights.com work a charm.

Blurry but you get the idea.

Just got back from working the BMW MOA rally in Johnson City, TN. Convinced my wife we should take the long way home yesterday... 350 miles and 12 hours later we got back home. Ran the Blue Ridge Pkwy between Boone, NC and Asheville, NC 'on the way'.

The Holiday Inn in Johnson City... "One of these things just doesn't belong here, one of these things just isn't the same..."



Birds of a feather...



Always wanted to, but never have, take my bike's pic at the Post Office in Tiger, GA so I finally did on the way home.
