Hey there, newbie joined to you. I'm thinking about first touring motorcycle and not only, because i started looking for Street Triple 675 for daily ride and i thought that it would be nice to have 2 Triumph motorcycles, so I'm thinking about Tiger 1050 as well.

Hi Biel  :401: to the forum  :031:

The Tiger 1050 is a great bike, if you can stretch to a Tiger Sport, even better, decent headlights & better suspension.

That is a very good combo! I have a '08 Tiger 1050 and '14 Street Triple R. Both Triumph triples but with very different characters. Use the Tiger for touring and two up rides with wifey and the STR for Sunday rides with my hooligan friends. :300: Rode sports bikes in my younger days and first looked at a Daytona 675 as a second bike but found the Street Triple is plenty of fun on twisty roads with out all the neck and wrist pain.

:401:  :0461: If your budget will stretch to a Sport, then the lights and suspension are better. I think the luggage too, though i know P2B doesn't agree on this.

If your budget is really good, why not stretch it even further and buy the new Tiger 900 as well!  :001:

The TS panniers are better than the previous model, I used them once.

Hey, so i decided for Triumph SPEED TRIPLE 1050 and now i'm looking for a nice but not expensive windscreen. I found site MotorcycleScreens.eu where they have seems to be nice windshield TRIUMPH SPEED TRIPLE 1050 bargain price I think. I probably will order this windshield and after I will get it i will put here how it looks.

  I loved my Speed Triple on the track, but for road riding. This old body could not take the riding position for hours on end.
Enjoy it while you can. Sooner or later your joints, wrists, elbows, shoulders, back WON'T take it. That or you really like pain.
My limit was around 45 minutes to an hour. Then the pain over road the fun. 

Post up a picture when you get it. 

OH, the speed triple forum is a great resource, BUT they are a cantankerous bunch. So it's not you, expect a hard time have a thick skin and just go with it.
I'm a member there also.

Best wishes and hope you have a blast and many fun years. Ride safe.
