Beyond the terrible title, I am looking for insight and experience about Triumph's Tiger. There have been several incarnations of the Hinkley Tiger (I'm skipping the classic Meridan bikes here): 885 Tiger (aka Steamer) 955i Tiger (aka Girlie) 1050 Tiger 800/xc Tiger 1250 Tiger Explorer I am a big fan of all of these for good looks, riding position and the triple motor in whatever version it comes. This leads me to my question -- which one would you choose as your only motorcycle? Some caveats: Power is important -- I like a bike that will move Ability to ride long distances comfortably -- I know people ride their sportbikes for thousands of miles and survive... I'm just not one of those people! Luggage options -- if you are going to travel long distance, you need some stuff and a place to keep it Weight -- I decided to let the 1150gs go because it was heavy around town and didn't have the zip of a triple; good power to weight ratio is important Two-up capability -- for when the wifey wants to ride, I need a perch fit for a queen Affordability -- maintenance, mpg, insurance and purchase price Which would you choose? I see plenty of 1050s for sale for respectable prices, and every once in a while a sweet 955i Girlie will catch my attention, but are these the bikes to seek out if it is to be the only bike? ... or I could go for the blackbird that recently popped up nearby!
