955i tiger questions

I'm looking into a back for my tiger, is there any pics and places for info on a subframe. Ready to go or a how to page. Been looking at some fs roads and such with the kids with camping in mind. I have a Colorado trip I do every yea and the the sidecar set up would be fun. My tiger is the only bike I have that I think would work on mining roads and have the power to road as a touring rig to get to the fun places.

I have other bikes such as a highly modifed Klr and a dirtster but figure with the long travel bikes it would be less desireable.

Edit: I also have an old 1200 bandit and have seen several rigs with a bandit tug, but don't figure that would be a good exploration rig. I'm open to what ever advice comes. I have been reading up on the options for days. Including the stickies here and build threads. Along with the sidecar pic thread

One of the members here did a tiger hack. Even shaped the hack to look like the front end of the tiger. Beautiful rig.

We have built many Tiger sidecars, One of the most fun bikes I ever owned was the first generation Tiger triple that I mounted a Ural sidecar to before we were building our own sidecars. The bike was painted up Orange and black "Tony the tiger" striped. It was a blast.
For the most part as there is so little demand for Tiger sub frames and Triumph keeps changing the bikes we have always done these in house only as one off design's however we had one in last year that we made a second sub frame off of and have it in stock. If you let me know what year your bike is I can see if the one we have in stock will work for you. Or of course, with your bike in our shop we can pretty much build most any thing.

Thanks for the links. I have looked those over before and love the streamers, but I have a girlie and they are very different in frame design.

The sub frame we have on had was made for the same generation bike as yours, it was built off of a 2005 and should work for your bike.
If you were to buy one of our sidecars it would be included other wise $725

I was wondering about the skid plate when I saw the previous pic... Was gonna ask you what you did with the rest of the Sherman Tank you must have parted out!
It looks great, btw.

Thanks, I have it pretty heavily modded with suspension. That is not so good for the hack though. I have xr650 internals and custom rear shock. I'll probably have to have it all revavled for the hack. Who knows all I've ever played with is a factory harley set up.

Is that the Beartooth Highway? If so I hope you were heading down the Wyoming side, I would not want to ride the Montana side in that weather you have pictured.

Homemade Tiger hack

There was an interesting article about a homemade Tiger-hack in issue Nr. 11 in the sidecar mag SIDECAR-TRAVELLER. First it was running with the stock telescopic fork, but now its modified with a leading link. Wheels are the stock spoke wheels. Had the luck to do a short test ride. Good runner, hard handling with the fork. Will try it again in summer with the leading link.

Appreciate that responses have concentrated on the Tiger, but what about your other potential option, the 1200 Bandit ?
Know it's not specifically an "adventure bike", whatever that is, but the regular flavour Suzuki 4s do seem to have their merits. Several of our Aussie inmates indicate the Suzuki can do the job off the main highway.
Subframe ? What subframe ?
