My New Girlie

Although I have been lurking around in a while, this is my first post. Great info about the Tigers here and especially the pics in this thread motivated to me to pull the trigger on a Tiger two weeks ago. So, I thought I do my debut in this thread. Here is my new to me 2006 Tiger:


I upgraded from a 2008 KLR 650 to the girlie, and I'm glad I did. After the KLR, Tiger feels like Goldwing to me :) No vibrations, plenty of power, and the sound of that sweeeet triple engine. I'm sold!

I went into a Triumph dealer yesterday to take a ride on a Tiger 1050 as it had been on my wish list for some time. It was good but it wasn't exactly blowing my skirt up. Then the sales dude gave me the key to an 800 roadie. Holy crap, that 20 minutes was probably the best 20 minutes I have ever spent on a motorcycle since I first got my license! This thing has got power, can easily pull over 100 with hardly any effort,and it turns and stops so fricken well! To say I was blown away would be an understatement. Now comes the sucky part, waiting several months while I save up to get one.

Did California secede?
My dealer in SW Iowa, ( Baxter Cycle ) has a blue one in his showroom that is waiting for accessories. He got it around 2 weeks ago. It's new owner from Florida is going to pick it up as soon as it's ready. I'm pretty sure I've seen it at least 3 times, although my eyesight isn't what it used to be... Does the GS come in Saphire Blue?

Hey Dan, hats the same color as the one I rode and I really liked it. Like you, I don't need the off-roadness of the XC at this stage, I think for the kind of mild gravel roads I will be doing the road version will be perfect with some good dual sport tires. As I mentioned to you a few days ago, I am seeing these come up for sale used now around the $8500-9000 mark so hopefully once the speed triple has been sold I will almost have enough to swing a deal.

The 955I girlie is the one I have been looking for now for almost a year and the blue one is near the top of the list. Someday. That is a nice looking ride.

Of course they do, especially on warm summer days!!!



But of course Even the strongest beast can respect a leisurely ride above the swell at times.

The dealer here in Anchorage said all his Tiger 1200s are spoken for except one and only because the guy backed out. All the rest are presold
