Tiger Riders of America - TRA

As far as I know there isn't a specific thread for Tiger Riders to all chat and get together etc. in the US. There are Explorer threads, 800 threads, Girlie threads and Steamer threads, but we all are Tiger guys and gals!

The Tiger Ride-In just happened down in NC, and it was great. Definitely going to be good next year hopefully (Right... TIGERRIDER007?!?!).

It'd be cool to get some cool Tiger Riders of America t-shirts/stickers or something going eventually too.


On facebook too for any Facebookers...

I've only seen 1 other tiger in Philly since December when I moved here.

I know of 1 other guy in the Shenandoah area of VA who rides a Tiger... apparently there are more out there but I am just missing them! Apparently the new ones are selling like crazy and I keep seeing people posting in the "show us your XCx" thread, they all seem like they are out west though.

I see a guy on a white roadie every time I visit my folks in Philly. I always listen for him when I'm out walking the dogs.

Kinda funny really. You'd think for such a popular model, you'd see more of them. I very
rarely see any on the roads around here. I see a lot more Explorers and once in a blue
moon, I'll spot an old 955 Tiger. But not a 2011 & up. Odd.

I own a 955 and love it. As much as it pains me to say it, I am looking forward getting an XCx sometime. Triumph really nailed it with that bike. Other than the local shops demo... I have yet to see an owner riding his in person though...

Where in WV are you located, I ride mine around the North Central WV quite often, who knows maybe I'll see you around somewhere.

I'm in VA, the Shenandoah Valley area by Harrisonburg. Some great riding in the area, I'm sure you know that. Maybe we can ride sometime, I'd like to get out and explore some more in the WV side of the GW national forest.

I'm just south of Berkeley Springs in the Eastern Panhandle. Midway between Winchester VA & Berkeley Springs WV
to be exact. You might see me out there one of these days. This year I plan on getting out to see more of the western
part of the state. Just look for the black Tiger with the Flying Tiger decals on it. Also, my plate is the same as my name
here.

Or if I'm not not the Tiger, look for an Ace Cafe Thruxton being ridden by a Power Ranger reject....

I've not heard a word from anyone out on the west coast yet. Just sold my 2013 xc800 and brought a 2015 xrx800. I removed all the farkles off the Xc and install them on my XRX800. Reason for the change is I'm vertically challenged. Even with low seat, lowering links and sliding up the forks. A lowed m/c just doesn't handled like one that's left stock. Hello from the DRY West Coast. I would have love to attend the Triumph Bash in Bennington, Vt. Anybody going?
