A Triumph will always be cooler than a BMW. Not saying it's better or anything... there's just a bit more 'bad boy' to 'em and that's a good thing!

windscreen question

Hi Kurt

How does that big popemobile windscreen work for you?

Do the extra 'legs' on either side attach at their base as well as at the front four screw locations?

TIA - David

The TKCs and dust MAKE that bike. I wish Triumph sold them that way.

Wink Tiger Envy

Hey all,
I ride a 955 Daytona but am covetous of the Tiger. Hey, if I had one I could be riding now instead of reading threads all day. I've read all about the Vstrom and my brother-in-law has one. U G L Y. I 've rode both and like em both.
Would you Tiger owners sound off about the bikes? I'm looking to buy an adv. bike and thru the magic of depreciation am very interested in the Tiger. I like the price point of the wee-strom but just can't see myself on one.

Things are better in threes I always say.

Don't try and start it with a low battery and always use the choke.

Bull,

The windscreen works well (it's a Cee Bailey); it keeps wind off my shoulders which is a big improvement over the stocker. However, as you pointed out, it's not very attractive. Fortunately changing it back to the stock when I want pose (as if that's possible on a Tiger). The sides don't attach to anything. They just sort of wedge themselves against the fairing. I was a little scepticle (sp?) at first but after 8000 miles I figure it works well enough.

Mudhen,

You provide the bike with TKC's and I promise I find some dust. And I'll throw in some mud, no extra charge.

Kurt

Thanks Kurt

... for the CBailey info - I've often wondered about that wide screen. Might give it a try one day,

Nice thread.
I like Tiggers. I've ridden a few and it would be high on my list if/when I decide to move to another bike.

Hey Scorch,

I don't get you, man. No offence intended, and I appreciate your efforts on this thread, but on another thread you have basically taken a very anti-Tiger stance. Are you some kinda Tiger Troll or something???!!!! Whassup wichu man?

Peace/
