Here's my new kitty.



Gonna drop her off for the first service this afternoon and pick up some more farkles. She loves to accessorize.

That "First Service 500 miles" is like the Pirate Code, right? It's really more like, guidelines.

I'll bust 1000 on the way to the shop for the appointment made at time of purchase.
(500 were on the clock three days after I picked it up)

Overall this is a really nice ride. The smooth power delivery, adequate OEM suspension, great looks and superb handling made it an easy fit.

My beefs are the same as everyone else, needs a lower 1st gear (I know, 15 tooth CS), and I wish Triumph would have given it adjustable suspension up front.

The handlebar shortcomings (position and hand guards) have been solved by a farkel transplant of my ProTaper Pastrana FMX bars with Cycra hand guards and Kaoko cruise from the KTM. Much better position and protection.

Lovin' it!

Now to pick up the centerstand, skid plate, mud flap, and H&B pannier racks (for my Caribou Cases) that should be waiting for me at the dealer.

I'm leaning toward the Holan guards for the engine and radiator.

Happy trails y'all!

It is the Enduristan Sandstorm. I got it from Black Dog Cycle Works a couple of years ago.

Vintagebob- I got a chance to ride those roads on a rental BMW while on business travel dur a weekend. You can't beat that area for diversity. Awesome riding in those hills between San Jose and Santa Cruz.

Took the Tiger back to a hill that I could not climb with the Battlewings.
If at first you do not succeed, go wide fucking open.
Had to cross some slippery, moss soaked rock pass to get to the hill. Lots of fun that was.







The previous Sunday I took it to an off road motorsports park (seems like mostly an ATV park). They had a motocross track with table tops and a smaller "track" which I spent quite a bit of time at. No action shots unfortunately. =[ The Tiger did catch plenty of air and the Fullbore tires did a hell of a lot better than I expected.
