I see you've bought the same bike as me.
Yes it's the standard screen. The spoiler is one of these http://www.touratech.com/shops/008/p...oducts_id=5174 that I bought years ago to try to solve the Tiger955 windscreen turbulence.
I was getting terrible wind roar in the chin vent on my C3 helmet. This spoiler takes the wind above that so it's now quite quiet. I do think now that maybe I need to try the bigger screen.

Some pictures of my recent trip to England

Went up North
Always good to have an Angel on your shoulder since all these folks ride on the wrong side of the road


Then to the Lake district
Hornister pass


Kitkstone Pass


and of course some lake


Yorkshire Dales




It was a bit dissapointing that the campsites were completely overcrowded


After Yorkshire Dales it was going south to take the tunnel back to Holland


....and I am going to fit a hugger on this thing


All in all a really nice trip

I've never been convinced by huggers because you still get a lot of crap going over the top and it still gets onto the shock. Not directly granted but it still gets there.
What about a "shock sock". Mine is by R&G.

Sweet

BRG is my favorite color. Period. I wish they would have kept it. I wish the new Tiger 800s came in that color option. I wish mine (which is black - so it's ok) was BRG.

Thank you G

Agreed the new Tiger in BRG would be sweet. Especially if they tied in the Trophy color scheme of BRG and gold accents/badges...... I mean mega drool !!!!!!

What seat is that?

Uhhh. I just noticed. Some of you have rubber covers over your swingarm bolt ends. Somebody asked me where mine were the other day and I said, "It doesn't come with 'em". Looks like I misspoke. I bought mine new.

Triumph "Gel Seat" at least thats what I was told. Came with the bike, has a Triumph "Tag" on it so I guess thats it, however I haven't seen any others with it...........
