New to me 06 Tiger

Hey Fellas,
Leaving early am tomorrow to pick up a new to me 2006 tiger. I've literally looked at all 331 pages of Tiger pictures here on ADV Rider! I've got over 1400 miles round trip to make by myself so I'm hit'n the hay. Glad I found a terrific Triumph Site and thanks for all the great information. I know y'all are probably worn out look'n at the older bikes but I may post up a few pictures when I get her home, she shore looks purdy.... .

I forgot the blue & 2 greens. Caspian is a fine looking blue - but none that color in the wild. Make it yours.

Bill,

I'm really glad to hear you are enjoying the Tiger! They are really super machines. As a matter of fact my son saw you out on the bike a few days ago while you were putting one of those 1000 miles on it. He recognized the British tank decal

Post all the pics you want! I just got an 05 and am loving it! I put about 2k on it so far but my time is really tight right now (i'm in grad school) but in December I intend to make it more adventure ready and will be posting some pics of my own. Enjoy

Hey Chad if all goes well I will be serving my last tour in the service in Europe. I will be looking to ride Wayfarer pass again, but this time on a Tiger. I did it in 09 on a Ulysses and had a great time. Being on a company bike did make it a little more fun since I didn't have to pay for any damage when I went down.

Here is my silver 06 along with my buddies black 06 on a recent trip up in and around the sierras. Great all around bike as has been shared. Nothing yet in my dozens of bikes compares to the sound of the triple when it is getting spooled up and ready for ...........
