Hello from Texas
on: 16 May, 2021, 04:07:00 PM
 Hi everyone, introducing myself to the forum.
Iím a First time tiger owner, just bought a super clean 2008 1050. Looks like itís been dropped once, minor scrapes on the left mirror, end of the swing arm and clutch lever, but otherwise nearly new.  4600 miles on it when I picked it up!
 Iíve had all the fluids changed, crash bars and new tires put on.
Looking forward to learning from and contributing to the forum!

 :401: 4600m in Texas of all places!  :008:

Hopefully all rides true, do you know much about the bike? fairing side panels should have 1050 on them.
All the info you need is here (somewhere  :164:)

 It rides and runs great.  Not sure how they got the 1050 logo off the fairing, don't know much about the bike. whoever had it put some super low profile LED turn signals on it, a red LED on the back of the engine so it glows red at night. The aftermarket exhaust is great sounding! planning on making my first long(1800 mile round trip) run in a couple of weeks. Had all the fluids replaced, put new tires and crash bars on it and had it gone over. I think it's good to go.
