Well I've not thrown anything in this thread for awhile, so heres a few.

My 06 (bought new), she is still running strong...





So, I was wondering, we have Steamers and Girlies, I can't remember what the 1050's nickname is but what is the new buzz for the 800??

The 1050 is a Roadie, The 800 has been designated as "The Beaker".

I see you're running H.B. crash bars on your Tiger. I'm thinking about getting the same ones, as they are 115.00 USD cheaper than the Touratech crash bars.

My question is this ...... Is that a touratech bash plate you have and modded to fit with the H.B. crash bars, or is it a DIY (as in - do it yourself) bash plate?

Hi G-Funk,
the skid plate is home made​​, but it is similar to the TT. I have made ​​but otherwise fit
and here it is easy to see the TT skid plate and mounting http://tigertriple.com/forum/viewtop...=1474&start=20
I attach a picture with details of my design.
But it is still quite low. I'll probably still have to adjust the exhaust pipe.

It's part of Camp Shelby in the DeSoto NF. They have all kinds of fake towns, bombed out cars, ect...
