I bought my 1997 Triumph Tiger new, but it was a leftover from the previous model year. Mine's Black and I've purchased several factory extras- as well as some after market products. My previous bike just prior was a '91 BMW K75S w/ ABS. I ride with my wife as a passenger and she likes the extra room we have on the Tiger-it was a little cramped on our BMW-with hard cases set up. With the Tiger, I bought stiffer Triumph front springs, a center stand (convenient, but a complete failure when it comes to clearance-scrapes when two-up entering the highway at lights-with rear suspension stiff- and won't clear curbs) and a must have, the GIVI 3-bag cases for touring. I also HIGHLY recommend ponying the $ up for a Corbin seat. Ours has the passenger backrest. Very happy passenger. It's been a good bike with terrific power and comfort-I'm in Florida, so absolutely no twisties down south here! But it's been on a 2200 mile week trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway area/Outer Banks of NC and several trips to Key West. Only problems at 12k have been two broken speedo cables and a battery that loses juice fast. In short, minor problems. I've also picked up a taller front screen from Jack Lilley Motorcycles in England and crash-bars that look great from a forgotten German Dual-sport site. It's a keeper...though, I plan on adding a couple of other fun bikes...79 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special, 1998 KTM 640 Adventure R and perhaps a BWM R90S. It's a unique bike that only saw about 100 manufactured and brought the US each yr. for the early 900 Tigers. I can't stand the new ones. Looks horrible to me.
