My understanding is that it is virtually (perhaps exactly) identical to the T800 luggage.

I notice that the 5.99% Triumph Financing runs out April 30th and I doubt my bike will be here by then. Anyone know if it is going to be extended?

Thanks for the info and recommendation, Luke. If I didn't already have a commitment from the local dealer, I'd be looking seriously at them. 5 hours is a long drive for service, though.....

First service in Dublin Saturday, rally in Abbeyleix Saturday night jug:





Any complaints....only one and its a minor one, find it top heavy compared to the 800XC, you got to be careful when stopped, especially when reversing out, and by the way the tyre pressure monitor really works, warning light came on yesterday on the way home, discovered a self tapping screw in the rear tyre and the pressure had dropped 10psi

I also rode that factory reps bike at Martins. Martins is a very good dealer, they host many vintage events that are top notch thats why I'm buying my bike there and I live 2 hours away. I put a deposit on a blue launch model. No one knows when the bikes will get there. I'm waiting for a call back from Triumph GA to get a better idea of my delivery date.

You can follow this to my Triumph Rat post http://www.triumphrat.net/tiger-1200...the-usa-3.html

My first post on adv rider.

Don't feel bad...I called Triumph corp headquarters to find out when my bike will be delivered and they never called me back. I think the bottom line is none of them know whats going on with this bike yet. The bikes show up when they show up then they sell them. We never talked price because they are not sure yet. I just put money down on the first blue one. No one can even guarantee me I will get a launch pack so it's hit or miss. Sales guys at dealerships usually don't get back to you right away via email...me too have to wait days for return emails, thats the way that busibness is they thrive on walk in business. Anyway money talks on new units because they will probably sell most all of them. The bike is as fast as my speed triple. I almost bought a Tenere then I rode one at Martins and I'm glad I did. I was just at the right place at the right time as far as the road test goes.

I read a lot of tests on both bikes and only a few things rang true...you need to test ride bikes these days. When I have more time I will do a write up on both bikes. I've been riding for 35 years....used to race motocross in the late 70's early 80's.

If you PM I'll give you my number and we can talk if you want and I'll give you my riding impressions.
