Big Lee if you ever get over to Wales, Way Farer Pass was a good ride. I know I probably didn't spell it right, but was alot of fun. I did a two day ride with the Buell Performance Academy back in 09 right before Hardly pulled the plug on Buell.

Have you tried your Tiger without the baffle yet?

It's absolutely glorious

Picked this up in the latter part of April. Have right at 4300 miles on it so far. It's simply been too hot to ride for the last month, although I did rider her a bit over 200 miles last Sunday. Heading to the mountains of western NC for a weekend's ride in a couple weeks, then on up to hills of north-central KY next month.

I've added a number of farkles since I brought her home.. maybe I'll shoot a pic or two and show you where she is now.

I like this bike....

Nice picture.
Which brand of panniers are mounted to your 955i?
Just joined the ranks of 955i owners so I am looking for farkles that will improve my bike to make it a better adventure bike and improve comfort.

Not a great pic

of my '07. Third 1050, all have been great bikes. She takes me to work everyday, as well as across the country. Can't ask for much more than that. (but if Triumph wanted to improve the bags, I wouldn't complain either)



Found a little bit better shot.
