Triumph Tiger 800XC

I would have liked to ride with y'all, but I have a bi-anual flight review Saturday. Robert got him a new Triumph 800 Tiger the other day, we are now getting ready for riding the Forever West route in early September.

I saw Robert's bike at Ridge Motor Sprts right after they put the knobbies on. That is a good looking adventure tourer!!!

know what you mean, as soon as one thing is "fixed" its on to the next problem.

oh yeah - as soon as i turned off of columbia road onto william few my front tire was flat. talk about a freaky feeling. pumped it up when i got home but haven't checked it this morning. probably pinched the sidewall which means a new tire. 15 psi just aint enough for rock ridin.
