Hi from Scotland
on: 16 June, 2021, 09:31:51 AM
Hey there. Havenít had a bike for about 6 years. Moved house and had so much work to do getting it sorted. Well the wife told me the other day to go get myself a bike as she thinks I need to get out more and have fun. So after a bit of searching Iím getting my 1st triumph. Always liked the tigers. Bike will be ready in 4 weeks and I canít wait to get my hands on it!

I hope summer isn't over by the time you get your Tiger!
Bike looks fabulous, looks so much better in a proper colour.

 :401: nice looking bike!
I noticed a gap between the tank and the seat. Not properly latched at the front?
Also suggest to add a front fender extender to protect the oilcooler and radiator.

Looks like it. Need to hook the front of the seat in before pushing rear down to clip in.

Most popular at the moment is the one from Bluebird engineering (search on eBay). Its real CF and longer than the Pyramid one
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
