Steamers are the early Tigers - '93-'98 (like the pics posted by tgrrdr). Those are the manly ones...the girly ones are 99-present (like the pics of tigertreibers orange bike).

The narrowest bike in those pics is the bike KTM made up to copy the Steamer...

Thank you for that warm welcome. I almost feel at home with you.

These mounts come from Touratech. They are for their ZEGA pannier system. I got a 35/41 liter combination and had them powder coated black.



You can see more of them here. Unfortunatly, text is in german. But I think you can understand those pics. ;)

These are the ones of an R1150GS. They fit without any major modifications. In addition, I attached spoilers from Touratech to them. Here's a closeup:



Have fun!

Hi, just signed up thought I'd share a pic of me and wife's tigers. I've got the Steamer and she has the black girly (very apt).





Matt,

really need to get a better camera...

Is it me or do the Steamers look much better (more purposeful perhaps) than the newer design?

Isn't there a new one due to come out soon - later this year or perhaps in 2006?

Have to agree, even with the 955 engine of the newer bike, I still prefer my steamer.

I agree. I would never give up the performance of my 955 for the looks of the steamer though. I will never own another carburated bike. I have had mine from Death valley (below sea level) to Cinnimon Pass in Colorado at 12,600 ft. and the 955 never hiccupped, missed a beat or failed to idle and run absolutely smoothly.

It is pretty amazing that with the steamer next to the 955i tigers. It makes the 955i tigers seem VERY feminine.

No. The 900/955i make the beamer just look older.

...or do you think the Dneper look more male than the Beamer (because it´s older)?
