Nice ....

I have to say, I thought I wasn't partial to the black frame over the silver mat frame, but I have to now say, I like the black frame better ......

Excellent pictures. I hope I can find somewhere as photogenic when I get my Tiger.

Lots of new, here's a little old. Anyone have a steamer side stand they wouldn't mind parting with? I'm looking for one to experiment with for lengthening.

Wow...there's a name I haven't seen for a long time. Not since I had just gotten my '96 and was bugging you everyday for info.

Nice to see you still have the Steamer - looks gorgeous!!

Dude ..... that bike is fuggin sweet. As I've posted before, BRG is my favorite color. I had a 98 (in black) that unfortunately was too top heavy for me. I'm 5'10, 160 lbs ....... and depending on how I stopped (off road) I had to make sure I could get her back upright if the side stand went in too much.

Having an empty, flattened beer can, came in very useful numerous times......... Not to mention carrying around a wood block (cut off 2 x 4) that I attached a small metal D-Ring to, and a "leash". I always had "Mr. Woodblock" with me in my tank bag.

My girlie feels / seems so much more lighter than my steamer .......

Again, sweet bike!
G.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Don't mind saying myself that I think the Steamer was/is one of the best looking bikes ever made. Late 1997 I wanted to buy a black one, but when I saw the 1998 brochure with the full page pic of the BRG Tiger, I knew in an instant that had to be it. It's a bike that still turns heads 13+ years later, and it has (for me) an undefinable character that no other bike I've ever owned can match.

I'm not tall by any sense - 5'7" with 31" inseam, and the steamer is very top heavy. Guess I've learned to deal with tall seats since there aren't too many dirtbikes that come with a 31" inseam-friendly seat height. But, I don't take my Tiger through anything too hairy; washed-out dirt roads is typically the worst. My hat is off to Mudhen for riding his steamer through the stuff he does - that takes balls!! I will say though that those Karoo Travellers give the Tiger stability on dirt and pavement that it never had with other tires. The rear is 140/80-17 and is absolutely huge - externally as big as the 150/70-18 Scorpion AT on my KTM 950.
