What actually happens is, when the bike tips over, the Earth moves the hell out of the way, thus creating the illusion that the bike is equipped with some sort of gyro stabilization device.

Ahhh, so this explains that old Chinese proverb "He who rides a Tiger is afraid to dismount."

The Tiger will make the crooked straight,
Make the straight to flow.
It will gather water, fire and light.
It will bring the world to a single point.

The Tiger is the road up your spine.
The Tiger is the road of your life.
The Tiger is the road of the cosmos.

As long as the sun rises,
And your heart beats,
The Tiger is at hand.

Preach it, Brother!

Folks, I am writng to say that as of today, September 30, 2010 at 5:31 pm PDST, the Hardcore thread has officially jumped the shark. It's been coming for a couple of days now - the rancor, the infighting, the intercine rivalries, et cetera - and today marked the end.

Friends, I am not writing because of their demise. No, that came as no surprise and brought me no joy. Rather, I am writing to thank you, one and all, for keeping a positive attitude; one that flowed like a sparking stream of inspiration and faith through a forest of uncertainty. One that proved we can all hold our head high knowing we took the high road.

Thank you. Thank you, indeed.

And now, back to discussing the marvelous, the fabulous, the best motorcycle ever: the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS! :clap

What?! Motorcycles of different types, living in harmony despite the differences between them? A universal brotherhood of bikes?

Your eyes have been opened brother! Behold! For it is foretold in The Book of The Tiger!

*ahem*.....Book of the Tiger, Chapter 46, Verses 18 thru 25:


"And so it shall come to pass; That all motorcycles both large and small shall be gathered unto The Tiger. And It's greatness shall fall upon them as blessings from the angels, and all of them shall be as one, united as one. For each shall not be overshadowed by The Tiger, but instead shall rise up and stand with The Tiger. And so shall The Tiger unite all. And unto the multitude shall be made known the peace of The Tiger. And no motorcycle shall be lesser or greater. And their voices shall be raised as one unto the Heavens, and goodness and brotherhood shall follow them on the roads and trails for all the days of their lives."

Just got a letter from our Queen, she got the word that I ordered a Tiger 800. She wants me to take over government in Holland as the current just elected bunch of whiners will soon be the ejected bunch of whiners

I have refused for now, siad I was to busy and first want to see what the Tiger 800 thinks of this idea. Although my feeling is that the Tiger 800 wants to go travelling.

It would if your rockvocabulary is limited, I will hear this:
Holy Diver, Ronnie James Dio

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away
Holy Diver

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you

Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away-get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel

Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen

I was listening to a broadcast today about jr tolkein. What was fascinating was that the lecturer stated that tolkein was an avid motorcyclist and that the idea for shadowfax (gandalf's buddy, the king of horses) came from an encounter he had while on a ride in the country. He claims to have met a sentient being in the form of a "motorcycle, of sorts, with a presence that pulsed with energy, speed and utmost grace." the motorcycle spoke to him of a time when men could "ride forever into the vast unknown on two wheeled beings with the power of the stars in their crankcases."

he said the motorcycle communicated the idea of a unicorn with wings, but since unicorns are so gay he decided to stick to a really bad ass horse...(so early 20th century, I know)

methinks he met our future captain of bikes?

My understanding is that, like many artisans, the creators of the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS purposely included a small flaw (one that has no impact on its power, speed, beauty, or hardcore-ness) so they would not be seen by the gods as assuming their perfection.

Book of The Tiger, Chapter two, Verses nine to twenty-one.

"And Saint Bloor raised the The Tiger up on high, saying, 'O bless this Tiger, that, with it, Thou mayest blow lesser bikes to tiny bits in Thy mercy.' And The Tiger did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and unicorns and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats and large chu--"

um...I'm going to skip a bit here...

"And then Saint Bloor spake, saying, 'First shalt thou create The Tiger. Then thou shall give it righteous kit. Then, shalt thou make the cylinders to number three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt have, and the number of the cylinders shall be three. Four shalt thou not have, nor either have thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then, steer The Tiger towards each road and trail, that, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."

Now you are showing your ignorance about the Tiger 800's time travel capabilities :wink: Although it's no so much a case of making us travel through time, it's more a case of changing the nature of time itself :norton

However, we have been blessed as the clothing & accessories video is now available. The flux capacitor isn't mentioned, but I take this as a sign it's an integral part of the design and can therefore be "taken as read".

That's fair enough, I personally found the news that the bike to end all bikes would not be publicly aired at INTERMOT a bit like being told that it was a mix up and you aren't winning a nobel peace prize after all.

So I can see where you're coming from.

When something like the Tiger allows you to own it, then you won't have to act superior, you'll be superior to all other human beings. After all, they're not chosen ones.

Triumph corporate has changed their collective mind, and decided to not release the new Tiger. Too much competition with the Tenere and poor economy. They have decided to just put one in a crate with holes in it and charge folks to look.

I'm not referring to you as the false prophet, I'm saying that a bike that tries to pass itself off as inspiration for the Tiger, yet is in reality a unicorn, has nothing to do with the Tiger at all, and is false. It's like saying that Chuck Norris learned all of his moves by staring at tulips.

Tulips have nothing to do with Chuck Norris, just like unicorns have nothing to do with the Tiger.







Maybe I should've said 'false idol' instead.

Sage observation. I think I might agree with you. The tiger is nothing like a unicorn. Nor is it anything like a tulip. I would also put bunnies and pee wee herman in the category of things that are not like the tiger. I think I found a new way of meditating on the greatness of the tiger: things that it is not like.

thank you for this new method of anticipation. the false idol was thwarted with true truth.

You're welcome, for this is a thread of truth, and those here are viligent in the fight to keep that truth from falling into realm of ficticious deceit that the "other" threads have become.

May the Tiger's dual headlamps forever shine upon your road, and may the thunderous growl of It's 800cc engine frighten all that oppose you.

and too you the odious odor of the smell of the tiger's exhaust, which according to the good book, shall actually scour the air of pollutants, shall accompany you on your multi-verse journeys with said tiger.

Greetings! I am glad others have carried forth the work of the righteous while I was away for a bit - I think I had a either a bout of dengue fever or hantavirus, but I am fine now. It was the thought of the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS that made me pull though in such a hardcore fashion. Does its powers know no bounds? I think not.

The power of The Tiger is limitless, infinite and all encompassing. It apparently has the power to remain unseen for another month, too.

But do not dispair, my brothers, for The Tiger shall come forth, and the faithful shall be rewarded!

Even now, visions of mana are revealed unto us! Accessories, apparel, glimpses of the awe-inspiring kit of The Tiger appease our longing and slake our thirst for more.

Now let us recite together, brothers;

"The Tiger is my bike,
I shall not want.
It taketh me to far places,
It maketh me to lay down serious miles.

It's seat and heated grips, they comfort me
The GPS shall not lead me astray,
But shall lead me to unexplored delights.

Give us this day our daily ride,
And forgive us our lack of mad skills
As we forgive those on lesser bikes.

Yea, though I ride through the blindspots
of SUV's and texting morons,
I shall fear no turnpike.

For thine is the power, the suspension and
finely tuned exhaust,
Forever and ever."

Scoop!

Hot off the press!

I got this straight from the Triumph Adventure web site so it's true!

The Tiger 800's will have Triumph branded accessories available, 50 different ones in all. Accessories will include such things as... (wait for it)....


Hand guards
Heated grips
Touring screens
Luggage
Engine protection
.
.
.
and rugged off road styled clothing

This news just stunned me I hope that you were all sitting down when you read this message.

I am so glad that you have the tiger in your life. Even as an ethereal idea it has the power to heal.

He claims to have met a sentient being in the form of a "motorcycle, of sorts, with a presence that pulsed with energy, speed and utmost grace." the motorcycle spoke to him of a time when men could "ride forever into the vast unknown on two wheeled beings with the power of the stars in their crankcases."

he said the motorcycle communicated the idea of a unicorn with wings, but since unicorns are so gay he decided to stick to a really bad ass horse...(so early 20th century, I know)

methinks he met our future captain of bikes?



Well now gennelmens, the business of sentient - or near sentient - wheeled entities has been explored in some detail by Mr Iain M Banks in his book "Against a Dark Background". The beast has only one wheel but many and varied are its tricks. In all honesty, the seamless "sliding" of capability and response of said beast is why I will be crisply cryo-packed until this model is released.

ganze 10-07-2010 08:14 AM

ok.

I just watched the new video on the Triumph website for the first time and the script actually included the term "hard core" accessories.

just sayin'

A unicorn with wings would be an Alicorn, according to the folks in the mythology, legends and glitter department here at Yo-Yo Dyne Corp. Definitely no relation to The Tiger.

Is it 'confirmed' to be an 800? I think someone said Gandalf had informed them of that -but I didn't see that on teh triumph site.

(I don't mean to knock The Grey Wizard -he probably does know- he is a brit is he not AND we all know the triumph factory is in middle earth since thier bikes are obviously assembled by wizards with magic...)

By studying current market analysis charts along with historical data from a variety of motorcycle manufacturers, my prediction is this:

1)Triumph will underestimate the demand for this most amazing bike, and will not create enough of a supply to fill it.
2)Initial orders will quickly sell out, and as more and more people have their bikes backordered, other manufacturers will slash their prices, hoping to get customers to cancel orders and buy theirs instead.
3)People are left with two choices: either wait for the greatest bike ever created to be built and delivered, or buy a new fully optioned F800GS for $3000.
4)Those who wait for the Tiger, will eventually be blessed with what is essentially a gift from the gods, while those that choose the quick and easy bike will be plagued by mechanical problems and extreme depression. Some may commit suicide once they see others on the bike they could've had.
5)News outlets will spread horror stories of motorcycles killing people. As more people become frightened of these stories, they quit buying and riding, and convince their fellow riders to do the same.
6)Whole motorcycle divisions of various manufacturers will be forced to shutdown, causing massive layoffs and global economic turmoil.
7)As unemployment and homelessness rise, so does violence. Police forces will be unable to stop it, and martial law will be declared in countries across the world.
8)The Book of Revelations begins.

9) In a feeble and ultimately futile effort to mitigate the sales slide caused by the iTiger a certain European manufacturer of twin cylinder dual sport bikes will start offering their bikes with an iPad duct taped to the tank in an effort to convince people that they are now iCompatible.

The effort will come undone when owners attempt to download the iAdventure plug in and their computer starts laughing at them.

A small misconception, but not too far off the mark. The wizards merely assembly the final product.

The Tiger's engines are forged on the anvils of the Iron Mountain Dwarves, far beneath the earth in caverns deep, lit by the light of the fires of the Earth itself. The steady ringing of mighty hammers rythmically echo as the sparks fly as glowing metal is pounded into shape, steam surges forth as the hot metal is cooled in water. A keen eye appraises each shape, each curve of the metal, and brings it to life with powerful blows of the hammer as it is created on the anvils of the Dwarves, each piece endowed with the artistry and magic of these denizens of the Earths depths.


Or it could be a factory in England somewhere, but who would believe that?

Rumor has it that years ago a Triumph engineer found a medium sized handbag in a field during a test ride of a motorcycle. The bag was completely empty and the only identification on it were the initials "M. P." embroidered in the space between one of the handles. Intending to bring it home as a gift for his wife, he strapped it to the bike. Unfortunately, British roads being what they are, the bag fell from the bike, and a hatrack, floor lamp, small tree, and several spoonfuls of sugar spilt from the bag. The confused engineer took the bag straight to the Triumph R&D facilities. The bag has never been seen since.

Looks like they've done some reverse engineering and put the magical capabilities of that bag into the Tiger's hard cases.

Anybody know how to get hold of Leonardo?
Maybe he could do up another shroud. His last one has been in the headlines regularly for the last 400 or 500 years. I bet Triumph would be wrapt at the publicity when the mystical Shroud of Tiger Cub was revealed.
