New to me Tiger!!

My new to me 06 Triumph Tiger!!! What can I say that hasn't been said!! I love this bike !! I can't wait till I get to put new tires on her!

Have been meaning to post up about it just been soooo busy lately!!!

Bike seems to be kinda laid back as far as turn in isn't too fast but is quick enough and just right for me!! Tires are have a slight flat center so i figure it will get some what easier to put into curves, but again it's really not bad I really have enjoyed it. I can completely feel the extra 100 or less pounds over the bmw 650 gs i had but the motor makes up with that in an easy twist


Got the next 12k service coming up expect to do all thats required and figure a little more just for fun For some reason i'd love to hear an aftermarket pipe on this thing!!! Love the growl of the triple!! OH yeah!! Wheelie's easily if you do that sort of thing

It is by far my favorite bike i've riden so far to this date!! to make a list of bikes i've put real miles on from the beginning:

suzuki Katana
Yamaha R1
honda superhawk
bmw 1100 rt
honda 919
bmw 650 gs

06 Triumph Tiger "awesomest bike ever!!"

This really doesn't do the bike justice, I'll follow up more once i get more miles on it! course i think i'm over 600miles since purchased!!

Glad to see this post! I told you that you would fall in love!

I do miss it... but I can sit in my new kitchen and make motorcycle noises, but it is just not quite the same.

Look forward to hearing your future impressions!

Glad you like it AJ ... FWIW, Simpson's S3 sounds saaaaweeeeeet with the Arrow exhaust and it's not that loud. Not sure what is out there for the Tiger...Just don't get something too loud
