    Thanks! Yea, you can't beat the looks of the S3... they've always been my favorite bike. I think I'll keep the wheels, though:D

    Yea, the winter is rough. Only getting three hours of overcast daylight gets to your head a bit! Awesome people, though. I made so many great friends there.

    Looks a lot like my driveway! My S3 is the slower yellow color though.

    Here's my new kitty. :happay

    [​IMG]

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

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

    I'll bust 1000 on the way to the shop for the appointment made at time of purchase. :D
    (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! :freaky

    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!

    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.

    Dubl-A,

    Do you have some sort of foot peg mounted to your engine guards?

    Nice bike, by the way!!

    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.

    Thanks Z, yea I made these and used safety strap to mount to the crashbars. They aren't perfectly positioned but I just rest my MX boots over them and it works fine.

    I see you are using the stock mirrors and that it appears that they were adjusted by the ground. They didn't break the mounting assembly? The reason I ask is that I like the larger size of the stock mirrors in my urban area but fear riding in the dirt with them. What's your thought on them in the dirt?
