Still a bit South, but Second Wind BMW Triumph has been good to me. I've bought 2 bikes from them (a F800ST [that was in there several times for warranty work] and my Tiger 800 [which has only been...

I wouldn't say that the Scottoiler (or other automatic oiler) is essential, but it's one less thing to have to worry about though. Though, you still need to remember to clean the chain...

Seconded, that'd be a great addition for those who have lots of extra electrical farkles... :D

I'd be interested knowing where I could get one or make one myself.

Yup, though you'll probably have to crank the volume all the way up. I have mine almost all the way up and I wear earplugs pretty much all the time and it's about at the volume I'd want it at.

When I was waiting at my dealer on my Tiger's 6k mi service, I was talking to one of the sales guys there pretty much about this same exact thing.

I certainly like the idea of having the extended range tanks available. Looks nice and the rally tank should be good too. However, I do have one question about it, how far down does the Adventure...

I put the SW Motech bars on my Tiger 800 as well. My only complaint about them is that they make getting the plastic panels for the radiator on & off a bit difficult. It's possible to squeeze them...

Yup, picked up my Roadie 800 back in the end of June (exactly 1 year to the day after I had one as a service loaner for my F800ST). It has ~6400 miles on it (almost all of it commuting though,...

Yeah, that's quite true. I think that the spacing off the exhaust is for two reasons. One so that it doesn't bake what ever is in that case, the second is so that it hopefully wouldn't need any...

Thank you, that doesn't look too bad. I guess it still will be a toss up for me if I want to get the 2x 37's or put the 45L on the left for trying to achieve a balanced look due to the exhaust. But...

Do you have a pic from the rear quarter? Planning on getting the Trax side cases eventually and was wondering how lopsided the 2x 37's looked.

Thank you. Hadn't contacted them directly myself yet, but that item from TT is the exact base I have for my GPS right now. A tight squeeze I can deal with. Just wanted to know a head of time if...

For those who have the Madstad screen already, is it compatible with the RAM ball mount from Twisted Throttle that mounts behind the instrument cluster?

The drive belt tension is adjusted at the rear wheel. The assembly is eccentric, so you can rotate it to adjust the tension. I no longer have the service manual for my F800ST, sold it after I...

I took all 3 New Tigers (800 Roadie & XC and 1200) out before buying my 800 Roadie. Since I don't do anything offroad (yet), the 800XC wasn't worth it to me and I liked the quicker turn in of the...

From what I last remember reading, this is another bike that won't be seen in the US. I think Canada might get it, but like the Versys 1000, us 'mericans won't be seeing it.

Pitty too, because...
