man, those are some old pics (pre-digital). How did you find them?

I was just reading another forum last night ( link ) and someone posted that the Givi racks are no longer made but other options are available. You could check Givi directly. I looked at Happy Trails' website and they don't list any luggage for the pre-99's. Not sure where else you could look for Tiger bags but good luck in your quest.

Use the search function here and on tigertriple.com....this has been discussed a lot. I think it was Hepco Becker? Someone still has them...

I've help from some very creative and resourceful ADV'ers. GeoRover1 designed and made the off-road footpeg inserts - I've got em on both front and rear. Stretch67 put together the high-mount fender kit and did an awesome job. As far as the other farkles on this bike - its mostly TouraTech. I really like the TT stuff because, 1-its well made and 2-its modular, so you can replace any individual piece by itself. Here is the list though.

BMW GS1150 Handguards w/Touratech wind deflectors
Touratech stone guard for headlights
Touratech stone guard for radiator
Touratech stone guard for oil cooler
Touratech handlebar risers
Touratech crash bars for the engine
Touratech skidplate
Happy Trails panniers
Wolfman Tailpack
K&N air filter
Triumph Off-Road Race Can w/High Performance ECU tune
-1 countersprocket (for better control climbing and descending off-road)
Custom cut windscreen by yours truly


As far as the cast aluminum wheels on an 01 - I don't know for sure. I know that the frame and swingarm are different. You would have to measure the width of the wheel/hub on the cast aluminum wheel and see if it will fit. I would actually like to go the other way - I would like to have some nice spoked wheels and a 21" front. Thats next on the wish list for me. I'd like to have 2 sets - a 21/18 spoked set with knobbies and a 17/17 cast set with street tires.

klrmike - finding an 01 with only 6k miles is great - snatch it up. Be sure to post up some pics and keep us updated on your upgrade progress.
Thanks for taking the time to post this list.I'm looking at the lowered footpegs for mine.I kinda got a bum knee and need the stretch.I have a set of HT panniers,9" I believe.What size are yours?
I'll post a few pics this weekend of mine.Bought it this April with a little over 6000 on the clock.It has
Triumph luggage with logo (givi)
Tank cover with bag
Track pipe
Frame sliders
Mirror extenders
Bar risers

Still looking for an after market set of bars and would really like a good set of highway pegs to stretch out once in a while.The good thing is looking at the layout of your bike has got me out of the GSA mode pics coming this weekend

Happy Trails

Mike

Hey Tiger Riders!
Before you buy new parts to farkel your 01 -06 Tigers, check out the parts for sale. I have not posted them yet but as soon as I find all my stuff and clean it up, I will have enough stuff to outfit your Tiger for a major expedition.
I have crash bars,skid plate, and hb risers from Touratech.
Happy Trails Pannier Rack, I may or may not keep the panniers and top box.
I also have spare parts. Throttle cable , clutch cable, clutch and brake hand levers, and an oil filter.
I put all this stuff on new about 2 weeks before I went to Alaska June 1.
I crashed on the Haul Road June 10, so the stuff has about 5500 miles on it.
The add will be posted soon, and will be priced to save you money.
I also have the three piece Triumph luggage with the mounts. They are roulett green!
