I recently picked up an '08 Tiger ABS (Black) from a young fellow down in Sacramento, CA. It had only 3,800 miles on the clock and very clean. It's a great scooter. High gear roll-ons bring big grins. It came with factory hard bags and a centerstand. The stock windshield is worthless. I bought a Cee Bailey from a gent in Philly and he shipped it out to me. I still get some wind noise, but no more blast of air to the chest and the price was right. This bike a hoot to ride. The torque is just awesome. I played with the suspension a little. No complaints with the handling. Brakes are spot on. I sold my 650 V-Strom and still have my '07 ST 1300 for the long hauls. I'm retired and life is good.

I bought this bike as a supplement to my BMW R12RT touring bike. The Tiger has only one weak spot -- a seriously under-sprung front suspension. Even at my weight of 170 lbs, the springs were about 50% too light. I installed RaceTech springs and a Gold Valve fork rebuild kit, and it transformed the handling of the bike. The stock rear suspension is good for my weight. The engine and transmission are as good as you can get for this type of bike. The front brakes are a little grabby though, so be cautious if you don't have ABS - I will replace with Carbone Lorraine pads at my next brake fluid change. The saddle is a little better than average, but could be improved. I use this bike in warm weather and when teaching various MC classes. This bike is easily the equal of the BMW R12GS I had a few years ago -- and at a much better price.

My 9th bike in 40 years; first Triumph. My last 4 bikes have been BMW (R12RT, R12GS, K12RS & K75S) and the Tiger is a fine blend of the strengths of these beemers. The only major improvement needed in the Tiger is a rebuild of the front suspension (50% under-sprung by static sag measurement at my weight of 170 lb I installed proper weighted fork springs and gold valve haudraulics; front suspension is now the equal of any sport bike. Stock rear susp is properly sprung for my solo riding, but shock damping adjustments should be reworked. I use my Tiger as a demo bike in teaching Total Control classes, so suspension is pushed a little. More casual riders might not notice suspension issues. The engine is very flexible and a hoot to rev. A bit jerky rolling on at low rpm. Shifting is considerably better than BMW, but not saddle. Gets lots of compliments esp amongst riders, many who have not seen a Tiger in person. No regrets buying this bike.

As the title says, this my favorite bike out of all I've owned (too many to count). The rider position is extremely comfortable. The height promotes excellent visibility. The performance is second to none in its class. The average rider will never push this bike to its capabilities. I could go on, but suffice it to say this is the best bike is a true do all machine and it does it all VERY well.

This bike is awesome. I previously had a Harley Electra Glide which is a great touring/cruising bike but the seat position caused me some low back pain. I bought a Triumph Trophy and before long I traded and bought the new Tiger ABS, I almost bought a Sprint but I made the right choice!!! The upright riding position is great. The seat is very comfortable even after all day in the saddle. The power band is amazing through all six gears. Cornering is awesome and the bike is so nimble and just the right weight. I get about 51 mpg and I ride a little on the non-conservative side. I might add a Givi windshield and a tailbag. The side bags came with the bike as part of Triumph's promo. The bike has been lowered 2 inches as well. It is my favorite bike to date.

This is my first bike. I wanted to combat gas prices. I completed the basic motorcycle class two weeks before taking delivery. I am so glad I got this bike. It is the perfect commuter. I was working on some bridges this summer with really rough access roads and it was great. I was on one with 6 inches of sand and some of the big 4x4 trucks were getting stuck and I eased right out of there. I took it to Deals Gap and did lots of rain riding and it handled great. On the way home I did 965 miles from Deals Gap to Appleton, WI. And that's with a bad detour through south Chicago. I split traffic in Indianapolis safely. I got a whole lot of thumbs up from Hondas to Harley choppers and even some mopeds. don't let others ride it; the power is surprising if you hit that throttle. But it is surprisingly smooth for me being a first time rider. It averages 40-48 mpg for me.

This is my fourth Triumph and they get better all the time. The 1050 power is great, gearing on this bike lets you creep to 2k rpm in 6th and take off without shifting. It rides really nice and easy although some heavyweights riding two up want more spring. Seat height is 33 inches so I had my winter boots resoled since they needed it anyways and the sole is a little thicker. My inseam is 30 inches. Handling is fine. I did replace the windscreen with an MRA Vario to reduce turbulence. It's fast, comfortable, and great looking. You can ride all day with no complaints or sore body.
