My Triumph Tiger 1050 - Bought new July 2007 and sold Oct 2012
I had owned over 60 bikes and my Triumph Tiger 1050 was my 3rd new road bike and the best until I bought my new Tiger  Explorer.  A great engine,
torquey, super smooth, bags of triple character and fast.  I could commute, tour, ride track days and venture off road all on one machine. The upright
riding position combined with a comfy seat and 50+ mpg gave a 190 mile range to provide long distance riding.  Much sportier than my previous Tiger
955i.   I bought my Tiger new from Ling's of Ipswich in July 2007.  They offered me a great price to trade-in my Tiger 955i.  I owned my Tiger 1050 5 years
and rode over 32,000 miles with no faults to report.  All cleaned and polished my Tiger still looked like new.
Accessories like the Crash-bars, Handguards, Krauser Panniers and Remus silencer absolutely transformed the look of my bike.  I think the effect was
stunning, but then I'm biased.  The only downside is the cadmium plated oil pipes on the front of the engine which looked shabby.
The Tiger 1050 really can be ridden off road. I have ridden all over Europe and Anatolia on unsurfaced roads

I created this site in 2004 with Yahoo Sitebuilder (Now sold on to Aabaco), I still use Sitebuilder but for the last 10 years there has been a bug in my site .  If I make a change to the Toolbar Sitebuilder will
randomly delete text from site pages.  I split my site into sub domains and I have more or less eradicated the bug which I now know is caused by the Advanced Navigation Bar Editor.  If a text box contains
gibberish it is not my fault.  I would not recommend Sitebuilder, unfortunately I am stuck with it.
