For "fair and balanced" opinion on the joys and sorrows of Tiger ownership go to www.triumph-tiger.com or www.triumphrat.net .These are two of the biggest Tiger sites. I've had mine for nearly 4 years and the only thing I'd replace it with is another Tiger. I'm completely nuts about it. I had a Daytona before the Tiger, and my wrists and arse have thanked me ever since. Pity it took a bastard bike theif to steal the Daytona for me to change to Tigger, but I haven't looked back.

Would you Tiger owners sound off about the bikes? I'm looking to buy an adv. bike and thru the magic of depreciation am very interested in the Tiger. I like the price point of the wee-strom but just can't see myself on one.

Things are better in threes I always say.

G'day Wildekurt. Got a question for you. Which company makes those panniers that you have on our orange tiger there? I've had the genuine factory ones for a while and am convinced they are crap. Looking to upgrade them (the darling missus needs somewhere to put the hairdryer). Cheers mate.

I was a little scepticle (sp?) at first but after 8000 miles I figure it works well enough.

Mudhen,

You provide the bike with TKC's and I promise I find some dust. And I'll throw in some mud, no extra charge.

Finally

Well at last I have aquired a Tiger. I just bought it last weekend. 2001 model 5700 miles, with Triumph panniers and trunk for $5k. The Daytona has an older brother!

Yes, nice pic but a few suggestions...

1) Get a new avtar. That one looks the one that Fly-n-Turd had.

2) See suggestion number 1.

With the tire cocked it looks like you got an action shot of your bike falling.

I think it's a kick ass photo though... Love that "flag"!

They should have stuck with the eccentric chain adjuster.
