You guys all know there's only one thing wrong with the new Tiger, right?

Every time you ride, you're gonna hear this fucking song in your helmet!

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

Man follows the ways of the Earth
The Earth follows the ways of Heaven
Heaven follows the ways of The Tiger
The Tiger follows it's own ways.

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?

I don't know...I can't see anything as badass as the Tiger communicating itself as a gay unicorn.

Sounds to me like we have our first false prophet. What say the Book of Tiger of this?

It's impressive how three relative "noobs" have chosen this thread to demonstrate their keen wit......well, half of it, at any rate.

It's simply staggering to bear witness to such incredible creativity.

It's amazing how you wield your astounding intellects.

Your use of innuendo and sly reference is truly masterful.

Displaying that level of lameness takes some real bravado.

Well done, we're all in awe.

Back to the Hardcore thread, bearers of false witness, or The Tiger shall smite thee with great fury!

Can we get back on topic, please.

Another noob question here for those in the know.

Is there any room for improvement on the new Tiger?
Or is it the sum of perfection?

Maybe a new color that hasn't been invented yet.

Anything?????

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.
