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.
