Please add me to your list of people interested in the Triumph LED brake light.
This will probably get moved to the regional area....
Hello to all Tiger Riders!
For the past 10 years, I’ve ridden 120K on road bikes (primarily on Honda ST1300’s) and I was constantly turning around every time the pavement ended.
Well a 2011 800XC followed me home about a year ago and has nagged me continuously for all kinds of upgrades and add-ons.
But during this farklefest, I was able to put on a respectable 12k of mixed pavement, gravel and two track miles. All the non-paved riding was completely new to me (having never been off pavement on a bike before). Fumbling through some of the more technical sections on the WABDR I can see why a lighter DS is preferred. But I made it! No drops! No crashes! (I know….I wasn’t really pushing myself right?) What I like best about the XC is it’s a fantastic road bike that keeps going when the tarmac stops.
So the question to my fellow Tiger riders is where and when to meet?
The proposal is this:
• The Tigers gather at the Deshutes River Campground. It’s easy to get to, not completely rustic (running water, vault toilets, showers), gas and restaurants are close by.
• Sometime in May or June we gather for a Thursday-Sunday campout. The later we make it the less snow we’ll find in the mountains.
• There is a multitude of rides with in a 100 mile radius. Two-track, forest service and twisty paved can all be ridden nearby.
Who wants to hookup?
Thanks all for the support! I moved the thread to Vendors and will get a list there shortly of all who told me they are interested. Please direct any questions or orders to that thread.
Start a thread, will follow it. Pencil it in for next summer. I may end up riding to BC instead of driving the RV to Seattle with the fam and then ride. Fuel costs are liable to be out of the question. Riding the XC could definitely be do-able.

You won't find a more fun money pit than the Tiger!
What's one of these?
I assume it's a side stand foot but it's not in their accessories list. Pt No please.
Hey Thomas did you make your way south or go home to re-group?
Triumph don't do one.
Touratech is a good one. Minor modification if a centre stand is fitted ( grind off a corner) Works a treat.
Just FYI, my Touratech side stand foot was a piece of shit. It fell off. I talked to Alt Rider and they said theirs is better attached and it doesn't get in the way of the center stand.
At home regrouping, waiting for a break in the weather. Your CBR250 inspired me to buy a Ninja 250. Six of us doing the road enduro Sunday.
As some of you know, I'm one of the cofounders of the Bennington Triumph Bash, an annual Triumph rally in southern Vermont. One of the other cofounders, Tito, moved out to Idaho earlier this year and was recently hired on as the Customer Relationship Marketing and Promotions Manager for Birds Of Prey Motorsports just outside of Boise. One of the things he's planning to do in his new role is start a western sister rally to the Bennington Triumph Bash.
Or, of course, you guys are always welcome to use the BTB as an excuse to ride east! You wouldn't be the first. First year we had a guy ride out from Seattle on his Bonneville.
Strider.Deano - I'm in. If in June, may want to do it earlier than later - avoid all the summer vacationing motorhomes, once school gets out & campgrounds fill up. Cheers, j
Cool on the Ninja.
I may ride the enduro Sunday also.
I'll take two please. Thanks.
Alt riders unit since they had to redesign it looks like crap. My Touratech has been on for nearly 2 years without issue. If yours fell off I suspect it was incorrectly fitted.

You are on the list and thanks! I moved the thread to Vendors here:
That's where I'll post up the latest news now.
