It still looks good on the street.

Wasn't sure how I'd handle Dust 2 Dawson on a 1050, especially given limited dirt experience. At the last minute added some TKCs and a bash plate.

I had some great crash bars from Thunderbike,...

I've just driven from Oregon to Alaska with a 2010 Triumph Tiger in the bed of a Dodge Ram 2500 short-bed pickup. I wanted to make sure there were no problems before posting any advice.

Need a Triumph 1050 motor

Long shot but anyone out there got a wrecked bike with a 2007 or later Triumph 1050 motor? My new Tiger blew up because the California mechanic who put on an aftermarket oil cooler guard torqued the...

I'll bite.

I daydreamed about it for ten years but never had the money due to med school loans. Then I started making a little money and walked into Bob's BMW to buy a custom Vanson jacket. I...

This must be what you call one of them good problems

Anyone know any good welders near Baltimore, MD?

What if I took off one pannier on the Tiger and had a way to hold two 29er wheels on that side? Then could just have frame in the pillion spot.
