Oh, I was going to guess Paw Paw, IL.  The flatness of the land looks just like IL, and Paw Paw has quite a large amount of the windmills.

My wife with our 2006 Sprint ST. The panniers are off in this photo, although they are installed a majority of the time.  She was mad as hell when I bought this bike, but 6 months later she loves it far more than she ever expected.  Now she brags about it hahaha.

Quote from: Rincewind;3689
Hey Dave. Great looking Daytona there. I'm curious - who makes that rack for the top box? Or is that the factory rack with an adapter?

It is a Givi E30N monolock topcase mounted on a Triumph Sports top rack kit.
 
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade/productview/607
 
Triumph doesn't list accessories for a Daytona any longer but it was part A9758035. The Givi base plate could be bolted to almost any tail rack.
 
Totaled just under $300 but it makes the bike work very well as a daily commuter and touring machine. Plus a tank bag tends to hit my chest. It may look dorky but I can't see it when I'm riding. Pops right off when I'm feeling vain.

Stinky - they are the stock tips that came on it. They sure look like chrome in the picture. I just went out and looked and I'm thinking stainless, maybe? I have noticed that the newer ones have a different finish than the earlier ones. The newer ones look 'painted', mine was manufactured 04/05. Not sure when the change was made. Someone around here ought to know.

I do not have a lot of pictures.  Here is a front one and a dyno run after a few mods.

Changed:  Cams for Speed Triple cams, Trophy airbox, rejetted, Thunderbike 3in 4in 2 in 1 header and exhaust.  Mag whell from a Trophy, reaer shck and front fork revalved plus a few look good part like the single seat, undertray from Mecatwin.

Result:  90 HP at the back wheel.

Basically an old man sport bike that will not attract the eyes of a police man and will be cheap on insurance.

My 2001 "Bionic" Bonneville

(904cc Big Bore Kit, Ohlins shocks, Works fork springs,
wide rear fender, wide 180 rear wheel and tire,
Pazzo levers, ceramic headers, Predator exhausts, tach,
Sixty8 seat, Sixty8 cowl, fly screen, and centre stand.)

My old knees "fit" this bike better than the '05 Sprint ST I recently sold.
Also the Bonnie has more grin-power!

Just out of curiosity, why did you order it from a dealer in St. Louis?  Was it that much cheaper?  (And yes, I am aware of the irony of this question coming from a guy who lives in Seattle but bought your bike from you in CA).  


Title: Re: Show us yer Triumph
Post by: Playinthestreet on December 31, 2006, 08:39:47 am
When I moved to St Louis in '96 I had a 68 BSA and a 75 Moto Guzzi.  Donelson's always had the parts I needed, treated me fairly and I delveloped a friendship with the owners as well as the folks that worked there.  I bought a new 99 Sprint from them and the 05 Sprint.  Donelson's also has a small museum in thier facility that includes some street bikes but mostly flat track race bikes.  I had a race bike in their museum that I intended to sell and they chose to take it in trade.  I really didn't pay any less for the new bike than I could elswhere, but it would have been a lot more jerkin around to sell the race bike on it's own.

That road is my little IL secret....nah, just kidding.... :lol:

That photo was actually taken on hwy 33, on the very twisty ascent straight out of Ojai (CA). Although it doesn't look it, it was December and the weather was ferkin' freezing. There was ice to the side of the road, snow on the road further up towards the top, and I think i might have died from hypothermia if I hadn't of find this little cafe in the middle of nowhere that served me a hot breakfast by a roaring fire.  :inlove:

Nice looking assortment there!  Sprint ST, ZZR1200 (I have an 04), and FJR.  I've always loved the Sprint, but I'm addicted to the bigger HP of the ZZR! :D  I took a demo ride on an 06 and loved it, nimble, and the motor was vib free!  My ZZR has a rough spot at 4500-5000 RPM but smooth everywhere else.  Still, I could go for an 07 in Red! :D

Nope...it is the California coast...hwy 1 south of Big Sur. It was closed just south of there due to slides when this picture was taken.

VB,

I love the TB sport, think this was a sleeper in the Triumph range that just never caught on at the time, but would sell well if they reintroduced it now. The Daytona wheels are a very interesting conversion. Maybe not the looks of spokes on this model, but a lot less cleaning and maintenance.  ;)

How is the R3 treating you, it is one of those models that I simply must try and get a test ride on.  :bigok:

Dave. :)

The TBS is MUCH easier to clean now :).  I also have access to a greater range of tires too.  

The R3 is treating me great!  It really is a great bike and always feels as fun to ride as the first time I rode it.  It was my long distance bike and commute vehicle.  I am a newlywed so I have a ton of things to do around the house now  :lol: and I carpool to work to save on fuel costs.  I have a Tuneboy and a Power Commander for it...I might try to make it more of a brute than it is now and just tool around the local spots until I get another long distance run planned :).


Title: New Tiger 1050 - woot!
Post by: Rincewind on April 02, 2007, 09:25:27 pm
New Triumph for me!  I picked up a blue Tiger 1050 this evening at Capital Area Triumph (near Harrisburg).  I am thoroughly stoked!  I traded in my Tbird there, so if anyone is looking for a well-cared for Thunderbird with lots of goodies, call CAT and talk with John.

(http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m17/Rincewind0011/bikes/Tiger.jpg)

Here it is in the daytime when I first tested it nearly a month ago.  I picked up their demo with very low miles.

Here are mine; the red '95 is nicknamed FrankenSprint--mods include ZRX1200 forks, fender and top triple tree, superbike style bar, Hayabusa 6-pot Tokico calipers, D&D cans, Sprint Manufacturing screen and Corbin saddle.  Before I got the D&D's it wore Daytona 1200 cans.  The 2000 RS (Beowulf) sports a Wolf slipon, SkyKing bar risers, ZeroGravity screen and unknown rear rack.  Next up for the RS are a Corbin saddle and Tokico 6-pots.

Is that a ZG touring screen you've got? Put one of those on my RS and it provided very smooth airflow around my head and shoulders. No buffeting at all after the install.

Still miss that bike sometimes. RIP:

The color was part of a "Man cave" experiment gone terribly awry, and repainting
is very low priority.
A current photo of the garage would show the bikes crammed in besides a couple of quads and
furniture due to the oldest daughter's new home not being finished on time.

Spent yesterday afternoon installing the centerstand on my Tiger and doing the 500mile service.
Today myself and 2 of my Ace Riding Buds went for a 380mile run to SE Ohio. We made a stop
at the "Big Muskie" bucket in Miner's Memorial Park.
Left to right, Moon with his Honda Nighthawk, Martini with his 675, and me with my new Tiger.

I've not presented the 675 Daytona earlier since mods were to come first. However with lousy weather, work, holidays, and now getting the flu I thought it was time.

Picked it up just before Thanksgiving at Martin Eurosports, Coopersburg, PA. (really good guys). It must have been an omen since snow fluries were in the air.
(http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc8/paulinskill/pickup.jpg)

It took until mid December to get 600 miles on the bike. After a brief stay in the shop the suspension was set as best possible for someone hauling around 205 pounds. It now has about 900 miles and sits in the garage patiently waiting for some attention.
(http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc8/paulinskill/675waitingpatiently.jpg)

Plently of mods are in the works. The only thing finished are Tank Pads by TechSpec (see above pic).

Here are a few in the works with track days in mind.

Sadly you will note that the mods are all sitting on the dining room table. Ill probably swap out the shock and get heavier springs for the fork but they will have to wait until the 955 Daytona gets new shocks and rebuilt forks.

Two Daytonas: one great to thrash about and one great for sport touring. Thank you Triumph!

Hey Capirex, thanks.

It took me a while to find someone to do it. I called like 10 places I think including a couple near DC and Baltimore; all but one said nope. A shop in Frederick, MD called Top Gun did it.

They tried to get the stickers off thinking maybe there was clearcoat underneath the stickers as well as on top. No go. After getting the stickers off, they had to sand, then repaint the lower fairing, then re-clearcoat it. It cost me $1000.

One thing I found out doing this is that the bottom layer of the sunset red color on the Sprints is fluorescent pink.  :hurl:  I guess that helps give it its glow. The other color is a red, but somewhat unlike the sunset red color. The guy said he was getting scared that the paint he'd gotten wasn't going to turn out right. When he combined them, it turned out right.

Hey Samal, I was a Samal.  We have a Samal Rishon over at TriumphRAT.  SamaR.  Also in Illinois.  Same person?

Egags is right!  :p

It looks like it's rigged in a way that the bike lean a bit. True?
How much does that weigh?

Cool!  That sidecar looks alot like a Mini Mate Camper.  It's a neat idea although I think I like the idea of leaving the camper behind when I run into town for Sandwiches, Beer & Ice.

Post by: egads1 on July 21, 2008, 01:16:10 am
The camper is a Kompact Kamp and as a sidecar weighs 250 pounds.  Yes, because of the weight and wind drag I do run a little more lean out.  Keeps the toe-in sensible.  I do enjoy it, but once set up, it is there for the night.  So planning ahead is necessary, but easy enough anyone can do it.  Camper goes up in about two minutes and breaks down in about the same time.  I'm off the ground and gravel and can stand up inside to get dressed and undressed.  I'm 64 and my knees don't like hard ground and gravel.  They also do not like my being on them when staking down a tent.  So this works for me, but it is not for everyone.

Aw nuts.  I thought I had firmly decided on bright red.  That pacific blue is better looking than I realized.  (Caspian blue never floated my boat... I think my favorite of all was sunset red...)

But since my current bike is blue, I'll probably do red next time.

Looking good bomber.  Say, how long is that tube you have on the side?  I could really use something like that for my job, but it would need to fit 24" to 30" long rolled-up drawings.


Title: Re: Show us yer Triumph
Post by: bomber on October 03, 2008, 10:18:52 am
Rince -- no where near as long as you need -- approx 20" outside length, maybe 15" inside -- it holds tire patch kit, 12v air compressor, and a people first aid kit . . . .

btw, the mirror stalks are 1.5 inches longer than the stockers -- I was wathcin all these folks add ugly blocks of metal to space their mirrors out so they could see something other than their shoulders (I ahd the same problem) -- took the stock mirrors apart, and found they're nothing other than 1/2 stock, threaded on one end, and bent.

20 minutes in the Entropy Lab, and, hey presto! functional mirrors!

Gosh I like that Tiger!  Anybody seen one with the little exhaust sticking out from underneath?  Zard, Shark or Remus?

After having a BMW with useless high exhaust I think that other pipe with full size panniers would be an improvement.

I've never been interested in the blue Sprint because I have a blue bike now. (I've always loved sunset red the best, followed by the newer bright red.)  But in that photo and your others, it looks fantastic.

the skins are Hotbodies racing skins, they come in a white primer. i used a factory matched graphite color and added Krlyon white and black for the accent colors. i also added some white and black pin striping. after that it all got a clear coat. did it all in my garage...not to shabby.

some great pics guys..  i have only seen one other here the color of mine. (both of "mine" for that matter and it was the old style..you'll see)

the old kitty 05' loved that bike
(http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c349/greenbeater/Fz6/DSC03956.jpg)


with about 6,000 on the clock she laid down and took an unexpected dirt nap. totaled the bike..  don't look bad but it cooked the motor and the total after engine repair was more than they would pay out..

(http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c349/greenbeater/Fz6/01-05-07_1136.jpg)




i went without for about 2 years, then started back up on a yamaha,(that the wife is riding now)


(http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c349/greenbeater/Tiger/DSC09094.jpg)







as she got comfy on the yamie (which took my ride away) bummer! i get to go and get a bike i want! what a shame!.. so here come a new kitty.....

I really like wheel striping when it's done well, but I've actually never seen any done other than professionally that was nice and straight.  I know I'd butcher it if I tried.  The red striping that Yamaha does on the R6/R1 looks really good.

Would love to while I'm over in the US visit some bike dealers and see what biking gear you have. But never been very successful finding bike shops/dealers that aren't HD or chopper shops. again not that I don't like them I do.

Thanks :)  No top case yet.  I got a small Pelican, for it, but it's too small to be worth the bother.  I don't really have plans for a top case yet.  The waterproof duffle works for my few trips I need it.  I'd like to get a 2nd bike for touring / 2-up so I can keep the Speed Trip stripped down & naked.

Been awhile since I've posted around here :o  Since that time I'v sold my 675 went for an "old Mans" sportbike..........

First step was pipes and exhaust.  Next will be an Ohlins up grade and soon enough, rear sets and a tail tidy up...

Nice Speedie, Chronic - I love the matte black paint job.   :bigok:

Here is my new Triumph, traded my Tiger on the Street Triple R last Tuesday.  The bike is a lot of fun!

Thank you!  Are those the handguards that mount onto the brake and clutch levers?  Do you know of an online source for them?

I really like your naked Sprint - that's very unique.


Thanks for the compliment! It's been a lot of fun working on this bike.  More to come..

Congrats on the new Street Triple. Some nice machines and action shots being posted here.  Very cool!

For the hand guards, any HD dealer should be able to order them.  You'll find the part number detail here:  http://www.zrxoa.org/forums/showthread.php?p=3019918

I searched online until I found an HD dealer that offered a 10% discount on on-line orders. I think it was "Biker Bob's" (original name for an HD dealer eh?)  :D

You could hardly call Sprint St a track day bike :). Just adjust the suspension and slap on some good tires.

Triumph pics were taken last year. This year she bought her first bike and this was taken 2 months after she started driving.

Rincewind, I'm glad it worked out for you.  I toyed with the idea of handguards for some time, and I'm quite happy with the outcome.  As you may have seen, most designs are more robust than the Buell ones, but aesthetically gawdy.  These wont help much with impact protection, but do a great job of keeping the wind blast off the hands.  Match them with some heated grips and you're in good shape for the long haul!   Once you get them on, post up some pics... :cool:

I ended up cancelling the order.  They sent me an e-mail about the prices going up, and one of the parts being discontinued.  I am up to my ears in mods-to-be-done, and figured I'd wait a bit on the guards.  I already have the Oxford heated grips at home, waiting to be installed, so my hands will have some comfort, just not the handguards for now, but thanks again for the idea/parts list.


Title: Re: Show us yer Triumph
Post by: DST on December 18, 2009, 04:33:59 pm
Very understandable - sometimes it's tough to put a break on the spending.  Re the discontinued part, the four screws that attach the inboard side of the guard to the pivots were updated at some point.  They should have suggested the current part number which costs an additional 10-15 cents per piece.

... should you later decide to try them :)

1700 Miles in 69 Hours.... it was great. My asre hit more then anything. My wrist & lower back were fine. If I'm lucky, I'll have a Ride Report written up this weekend. Saturday riding around Yosemite National Park then along Hwy 120 West to Hwy 49, to Hwy 140 back into Yosemite and then back out to & over Hwy 120 East (Tioga Pass) was the Best Day of Riding that I can remember ever having... I need to go back.

I don't track mileage, I fill 'er up when the light goes on and keep riding.

My guess is low 30's based on about 140 miles / 4.? gallons on average.

Baddass? maybe.  What I do know is that I'm never in too high a gear when merging onto the highway or passing!

Is that because it's more comfortable, like more upright position, more leg room? Anything to do with the motor? How do the motors compare? You've got two great bikes there.   :thumbsup:

Oh very much so.... But my Futura has given us many miles of fun.... 57K miles of wonderful times..... However like most things, the Futura is not being made any longer and finding a replacement was tough to say the least. The Futura has had some FI issues lately and I haven't been able to fix what ever is causing it (even $500 later from two dealers). So we decided to move on. Tired of not having been able to ride. We went and bought the next best thing. Again it was very tough but the GT is as close as we have seen to the ergos from the Futura as one can get.

The ergos as mention in the previous post, is pretty close to each other. My Futura has Germar (sp?) risers but the GT doesn't seem to be any lower OR higher in the handle bar dept. The seat is very typical for today's sport tourer, kinda stiff, but we are getting used to it. The Futura has one of the best seats I have ever had on any bike... Period.... We may get the gel seat from Triumph but not sure if we will need it yet. Let room seems to be a bit tighter on the GT but not by much. As far as motors compare... Well first off... the Futura is a 60' twin and with that comes the V twin torque, vibration and wonderful sound it produces. The Rotax engine has been built proof with only having to adj. the valve shims once in 56+K miles. The electrics have had some issues but nothing that the Aprilia AF1 forum experts couldn't handle....  :inlove: Which brings us to the GT triple. Very smooth, lots of torque, nice sound from the stock muffler and did I mention smooth. Very refine bike compared to the Futura. Mind you, the Futura is a very European type motorcycle (not sure what that may intel but it sounds good anyway). I guess what I mean is... The GT fit and finish are way better, the transmission shifts better/smoother and at this point is a bit like a jap bike....???? My friends FJR has the same traits but with a bit more power of course. But the handling on the FJR is a bit more relaxed/heavier not as sporty.... So these bikes, Futura and the GT, are a Sport Touring bike, they have different traits, none which are bad by any means, just different. I hope I shead some better light on the two and we look forward to many more miles on the Triumph.... :thumbsup:

Did a fly & ride to Florida to pick up my 2007 Sprint.  My 2,400 mile test ride took me through the Georgia, N. Carolina & Tennesse mountains on the way home to Minnesota.

Here's a recent pic.  At my indy mechanic, saying good bye for 1-2 weeks.

(http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac214/SVTNate/IMG_0109.jpg)

She's having the 500 mile service done, but that's not what is taking so long.

Remove and disassemble front/rear suspension.  Send to Race Tech.  Install Gold Valves and custom rate springs.  Re-assemble, ship back, re-install on bike, set up for me.

Remove foot controls, send out for powdercoat, re-install.

Install front/rear OEM anodized brake reservoirs.

Install OEM fat bar (black).  Powder coat fat bar risers to match.  

Bike has received ASV short levers since last picture I posted, along with OEM axle nut cover, carbon hugger, carbon upper and lower chain guards, carbon hose guide.  Oh, and R&G tail tidy is on the bike as well.

When I get the bike back, I'm pretty much done throwing money at it.  I hope.

I couldn't even bring myself to take a pic of my bike today.

Still at my indy mechanic.  Front wheel removed, suspension removed, gas tank removed.  Beautiful weather.  ARGH

I bought the OEM fat bars and risers.  I dropped them off for install and powdercoat (gloss black) to match the foot controls.

It'll be at least another week.  I've missed out on a lot of great riding weather, and haven't been on two wheels in 3 weeks now.

However, when the bike is done, it'll be the sweetest S3 around!  Full Race Tech suspension, plus pretty much the entire Triumph OEM Accessory catalog, and powdercoated bars/risers/foot controls.

I got a call yesterday... my mechanic came in on a Sunday to work on my bike  :inlove:

Gotta give it to Rick Chique at R Cal Racing in Huntington Beach.  He's done most of the service and modifications on all of my motorcycles.  

Race Tech suspension is done, anodized brake reservoirs, 500 mile service, powercoated foot controls and OEM fat bars with matching risers.  All black.

I should be picking it up in the morning or early afternoon.  Pics and ride report to come!  All that's left is to get the OEM carbon upper/lower chain guards and hose guide installed, which I'll do *after* I ride the hell out of it!

Last year I'd purchased a 2002 Daytona 955i CE. It had some scrapes created by the previous owner and could use a fresh coat of paint. I've recently had it repainted using the factory default Aston Green color.

I'm still waiting on a few Decals, need to install the Protons Turn Signals, get the mid-pipe Ceramic coated to match the Exhaust Header, and waiting on my Zero Gravity Windscreen... all that as well as find a better spot for pictures other then the dead grass in my front yard... :D

Here are a few pictures of the current status of the bike.

Here are the most recent pics of my '11 Speed Triple.

Here's the run down -

Arrow 3-1 race exhaust w/ ECU flash
Race Tech suspension - custom rate springs and Gold Valves both front and rear (still dialing it in)
OEM flyscreen, belly pan, seat cowl
OEM carbon hugger, upper and lower chain guard, and hose guide
OEM bar end mirrors
OEM Fat Bar, black, then re-powdercoated to match, along with risers
OEM anodized brake reservoirs, both front and rear
ASV short levers w/ blue adjusters
R&G Tail Tidy
Powdercoated exhaust hanger and foot controls including pegs/rear brake/shifter/heel guards/etc.
Deleted passenger pegs with OEM covers for the frame mounts
I *had* the OEM anodized wheel hub cover, but it's not on the bike anymore so since it locks in place I assume it was stolen :(

Today was the first day since Jan 19th that I went out for a ride on either bike...
What did I learn today  :headscratch: ... 362 miles later my body was reminding me that it's been way too long since the last ride.

No Comment on the Mod's over at TRN... I've met quite a few good folks over there.  The Mod's are a reason I tend not to post or even visit often.

Triumphrat is by and large an excellent forum.  Since moving to the Tiger side it has in fact been a great forum.  ModX is an escaped Nazi war criminal  :eek: and likes the Sprint forum to run "his" way and his daddy is ModAlpha the real mod, well he's ModX's hero.  Can't remember the admin/owner of the site, maybe it is TbirdNZ.  When I ran afoul of ModX we had a nice exchange about the quality of some of his mods.  His advice was to ignore them which I totally do.   Just don't talk to them, even if they send you a private message.  In your specific case, I would appeal their decision to the site admin.

Is DaveM one of those ModX or ModAlpha guys?  AFAIK the site owner is now VerticalScope via Motorcycle.com.  It used to be a guy named Shawn.  TBirdNZ might be the main manager, I don't know - but he's no owner.  Shawn sold it out to the big corporation.

There was a mod in the Street Triple forum that was very intrusive - Diego - who is no longer a mod of that forum.  I guess enough people complained.

Said they have a real hard time getting moderators, let alone good ones.  Even though I really did not care for Dave for a lot of reasons, he is a saint compared guys on an unmentionable FJR forum.

Just kidding!  I had recently got the camera and that was one of the first videos I had done with it.  For some reason it wasn't set to 1080.  I also haven't totally figured out how to upload to Youtube in HD.  Also not sure why the video just shows a link in the post and not the video itself.  I have posted videos other places and they were fine.  Strange.  Anyway, glad you like it.

Yeah, I did that back in July on a 4 day trip from Atlanta to Wytheville, VA without touching interstate.  Triumph tank bag and Ventura Pack rack.  1200 or so miles.  I have arm issues (can't straighten either - both elbows are fcuked).

My friends know me as a moto slut.  I've kept four bikes in my lifetime for multiple years: a V65 Magna, ST1100, the first Speed Triple, and the Tiger 1050, all of which for 4 or more years. Everything else has been wham, bam, thank you ma'ams.

I love it! :D  The bike handles very well, is nimble and comfortable, and seems to get better fuel economy than my previous bike, a 2010 Kawasaki Concours.

Big congrats, nice bike!

The +5mph off is pretty good for a Triumph, my previous Sprint ST was +8-9 high. Current Sprint is +5 too.  ;)

Hi Don,
On three triples, I found it to be 5 to 6 % off.  I used TuneBoy and TuneECU to program the speedo on all three.  It varied somewhat between bikes and tires but always about 6%.  Unless you are running on fairly straight roads, gps isn't 100% accurate and when you go up over a 100mph it gets downright erratic.

Thanks Rince and redsled. The blue on the the Tiger looks the same as the Pacific Blue paint on the Sprint in pictures but it is definitely different in person. The Tiger blue is lighter when it is under direct light. I like the Pacific Blue on the Sprint better. I am surprised they didn't use the same paint for all bikes?

Redsled how did you like the Explorer? They had a demo at my dealer but I didn't take it out. Maybe this summer I will. I sat on it and it felt very comfortable. I have just been set on getting the lighter 800. My wife sat on both with me and she liked the 1200 better but she also liked the 800 as it is a big improvement 2 up over the Sprint.

I *really* liked the Explorer.  Having it for a week allowed me to test different things at my leisure.  I guess a leaky gasket was a blessing in disguise (maybe not so much for my pocketbook in the future though).  I did a write-up for some of the mailing lists I'm on.  Let me find it and I'll copy it over to here for you.

~~~~~~~~~~

I took my Speed Triple in for warranty work this past Saturday and I
was handed the key to a demo Tiger Explorer to bring home. It took me
a few miles to get used to the layout from what I was used to with my
old Tiger. Wow, what a difference this one is!  It's a technological
marvel compared to my old one.  Following is my impression after
putting about 350 miles on it the last couple of days.

The ride home from the dealer is about 65 miles, so I got a feel for
its touring ability right off. It has an adjustable screen (about 6 or
7 manual settings) and I thought it was in the upper position already
so I didn't change anything initially.  The temp was in the mid 50's
for the ride home and I was quite comfortable in my Darien
jacket/pants, where I was a little chilly on the way up riding the
naked Speedy.
This bike affords the interstate very well. I don't know if it's the
19" front or the larger motor spinning 500 rpm's lower at 80 indicated
(vs the 1050 that wears 17" hoops front and rear and spins at 5000
rpm's at the same speed), but this thing was buttery smooth. It
actually reminded me of the R1200RT I rode last month (except with
actual power) as far as the smoothness on the interstate.

I also didn't realize until I got home that the drivers seat is
adjustable also. Very easy and quick. I went out the following day
with the seat lowered and the screen raised. The screen was fine and
the seat was ok too in stop-and-go traffic allowing me to flatfoot at
lights (I'm 5' 9") but after about 100 miles I felt like I wanted to
raise the seat back up to stretch my legs just a bit. If I were to
ride this to Colorado, I'd just deal with the tiptoes at stops to be
more comfy for the long haul.  And if I changed my mind back, it
literally took 10 seconds to adjust it.  I ended up putting an easy
200+ miles on it Sunday, finding a twisty road or two, and another 100
or so Monday.  A few of those miles were on dirt/gravel roads which it
handled mostly fine.  Looser gravel had me sliding around just like on
a regular street bike, which was a bit disappointing.

The gearing took just a little getting used to.  1st was geared very
low compared to the other Triumphs I'm used to (and other bikes too I
guess).  It almost felt like a low range gear!  But once shifting into
2nd, all was fine.  2nd and 3rd gears were absolutely divine.  It
pulled *very* hard in those.  4th was nice also, but pretty
anticlimactic since 3rd would get you well past legal speeds quickly.
This is a 6 speed gearbox that could have just 5 and be fine.  It
became routine for me to not shift into 6th until I was at 65-70
indicated.

This bike came with a few OEM accessories already on it, due to it
being used by the owner of the dealership to ride it to Maine for
whatever reason.  It had the Triumph Comfort seat on the rider's
portion.  Based on the suppleness vs. the passenger portion that's
still the original, it's an improvement, but how much is up in the
air.  It has the driving lights on it which have made good daylight
accent lighting to be seen with, but I'd still add LED lighting for
serious nighttime lights.  The driving lights are wired in with the
bike's wiring harness at some point obviously because until the bike
is started, neither them nor the headlights come on, ala how
Kawasaki's have been for *years*.  Finally, someone else (and I'm sure
others) have caught onto this battery-saving measure.

The side cases (which might come with the bike, but I don't think so)
are horrible.  Well, one of them is.  First, the positives.  Finally,
because the ass end isn't as jacked up as my old 1050, the cases sit
level to the ground instead of being pitched at around a 30 degree
angle.  And they're flat on top.  The left case is *plenty* large
enough for a full-face helmet with room to spare.  The right case is
another story entirely.  My old Tiger had little room in the right
side due to the high exhaust.  This one is worse, if that's even
possible.  It doesn't look *so* bad looking at it from the back (small
yes), but once opened it removes any doubt as to how shallow it is cut
out.  If they do come with the bike, I'm sorry for the owners, being
saddled with something you want to trade out for a useful case.

Overall, I really like what they turned the Tiger into.  Adjustable on
the fly rear suspension, hydraulic clutch (which never bothered my
ever-weakening wrist like my cable ones do), adjustable seat height,
adjustable windshield, and another that I haven't mentioned yet.  Both
headlights finally come on for both low and high beams and are normal
H4 (reflective?) bulbs instead of the stupidly horrible projector
H7/H9 low/high beams that every 1050 owner I know of panned. It's hard
to tell if the taillight is LED or not like the old Tiger and current
Speed Triples are, but I can't see why they'd go away from that.  The
swingarm is single-sided, but looks a bit wonky with the 5 lugs and
that skinny tire on the back.

Doing another walk-around just now I see there's also more lower body
wind protection than on my 1050.  The radiator is flared out a bit
more and panels on each side stick out and down to cover probably down
to the shins where my 1050 was basically in the air from the waist
down.

Asking if I would buy this is stupid.  Of course I would.  Yeah, I'm
the local fanboy for Triumph (and want to sell the Speed Triple in
favor of something like this), but money talks right now with me.  I
have a line on a well taken care of 2006 FJR that I'd almost
definitely snap up if I sold the Speedy soon.  I have no idea what the
dealer wants for this Tiger (it only had 2007 miles on it when I got
it), but it's surely double what a friend wants for his FJR.


P.S.  A couple of things I forgot to put in the write-up is that it has self-cancelling turn signals that must be attached to speed, lean angle, or something.  They seemed to cancel sooner or later based on different actions.  It also has a helmet hook (small thing I know, but many don't have them now).

Rince, I missed somewhere that you'd gotten another Tiger.  I remember us talking a couple of years back about our 1050's.  Since I've ridden the Explorer but not the 800 (yet), compare for me the 1050 to the 800.  Do you have sidecases on yours and if so, which?

Thanks!

Rince, I missed somewhere that you'd gotten another Tiger.  I remember us talking a couple of years back about our 1050's.  Since I've ridden the Explorer but not the 800 (yet), compare for me the 1050 to the 800.  Do you have sidecases on yours and if so, which?

No, I don't have sidecases.  I have a topbox, tank bag, and rear bag.

Comparing the 1050 and 800 Tigers:
    The 800 is thinner, lighter, less top-heavy and more enduro-oriented where the 1050 is more sportbike-oriented.  
    The 800 larger front wheel gives more confidence in gravel riding confidence.
    The 1050 17" front wheel falls into turns a lot quicker, but can also feel twitchier where the 800 feels planted.
    Fuel mileage is generally better with the 800, but only by about 5 mpg or so.  Overall range seems about the same for me.
    Insurance costs are roughly similar (for me).
    The 1050 has a fair amount more linear power in the lower RPM's.  The 800 performs well in low-revs but doesn't have the same snap, which also makes it more easily controlled.
    The head lights are (slightly) better on the 800.  I haven't rushed to mounting aux lights like I did with the 1050.
    Having a built-in luggage rack with the 800 is great versus having to install a fully supported metal rack with the 1050.
    The two-section adjustable seat of the 800 is better than the 1050 non-adjustable one, but I never had a fault with the 1050 seat.
    I like how the rear seat and rear subframe do not angle up as hard in the 800 design versus the 1050.
    Passenger leg room appears longer on the 800, but I'm not positive.  
    The 800 engine is revier than the 1050 and I find myself reving the 800 at stoplights like an enduro.
    The 800 transmission is like butter.  The 1050 wasn't all that bad, but the 800 is smoother.
    Brakes on the 1050 are superior to the 800.  But I have ABS on the 800 unlike my former 1050, so I like that aspect.
    1050 rear suspension was not very good - 800 is more consistent.
    800 handlebars seem somewhat wider than the 1050 - at least, overall it seems easier to perform tight maneuvers.
    800 is slightly louder in terms of wind noise at high speeds - sounds like the tearing of space/time above 85mph or so
    800 is much hotter in hot weather.  The frame gets extremely hot in +95 weather and I get a lot of hot air at low speed.  Hopefully it will be less a problem this summer after the bike has been more broken-in.
    1050 will power wheelie without slipping the clutch - 800 needs the clutch to get it up.
    1050 is faster across a quarter mile and in top speed.  The 800 starts losing gumption after about 115mph.  
    800 has a gear shift indicator, 1050 does not.  I prefer having one.
    800 cannot display the main odometer when moving - that's a bit frustrating.
    800 metal bellypan is superior to the useless plastic one on the 1050
    1050 swingarm is better looking
    1050 needed a rear hugger to keep the rain off my legs.  I haven't found the need for one on the 800.
    I like the more minimal dash area of the 800 over the 1050 with its infills and extra plastic.
    I prefer the trellis frame aesthetically over the 1050 frame.
    800 has a lot more tie-down points - a lot more




I haven't gotten to try a 1200 Explorer Tiger yet.  I'd love to try one for a week.  I'm pretty sure I'd still prefer my 800 cause it fits my needs and riding better.  


Title: Re: Show us yer Triumph
Post by: redsled on January 29, 2013, 01:33:56 pm
Thanks Rince. Sounds like I'll be leaning more towards the 800 over the 1050 if I go back that route. I'd love to just get the Explorer, but I can't drop $15k on a bike right now.

Hmmm, there is a Ninja 1000 that can be toured on.....

No problem.  BTW - I tested a Ninja 1000 the other summer.  Great bike overall.  It has an eerily smooth powerplant in the low-to-mid RPM's.  In the upper revs it has terrific power (more than a 1050) but terrible buzzy vibes.  It's not nearly as smooth across the powerband as a Triumph triple.  I found it a real turn-off.  YMMV.

No problem.  I used the SW-Motech steel rack for the V46.  I have stopped using the V46 as much now that I got a tank bag that works with the unusual tank shape.   https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,75392.0.html#.UQwHRGeH98E

Leaving this Sunday for a ride to western TN via PA, MD, VA, WV, & KY on mostly two laners. Gonna let the Sprint really stretch it's legs, hopefully avoiding performance awards.  Me & a ST1300 buddy are gonna try to get semi-lost. Should have 3000+ more on the odo when I get back home in a week.  Relatively new BT023's may be wore out soon after getting back. Will try PR3's then.

Didn't know we were playing "What's different?"  :)

Case guards, levers, Ermax flyscreen (which I like better than OEM), MIVV GP carbon shortie, Triumph OEM low seat, lowering link, CF extender on front fender, SW Motech Alu Rack.  I have both Givi V46 and E55, which can go on any of my street bikes.  I'd like to fab up a set of custom racks on the S3R to carry my V35s, too.

Moritomo retrofit HID projectors waiting to get installed.

Here's an earlier pic that shows the other farkles that went on first:

Unless your SV1000 is a dedicated track bike, I vote it's time to trade it in for something to go play in the dirt.   :naughty:   :D

Actually, I've got a '05 Gixxer600 for a dedicated track bunny.  I bought it cheap so as not to bother me if it gets dinged up.

The SV1000S is a great bike but is not getting much love these days.  It'll be on the block sooner or later.  Been procrastinating because it took me a long time to find a prestine sample (barely 300 miles on it when I bought it in '12).

 You are exactly right.  I have been thinking about a 250 dual purpose or DR400 motard.  Play enough with heavy hitters and I start to miss the simplicity of a lil' bike.

Good plan.  I did the mirrors and the exhaust first, both I don't much care for, and rode that way and got a feel of it before piece-mealing the rest.  I used to just dive right in and farkle up a storm.

Noticed yours ('14 SE?) has the newer style mirrors.  Wonder how those work.

I've always thought the Speedy would be a great all around bike, but the lack of any real wind protection has kept me away. (That and its propensity to add points to my license :D)

So, it has been quite a while now since my last post, but I've continued to lurk around the site.

Anyway, I make my return here as I acquired a new bike for the time being...

(http://i.imgur.com/iQf4QVI.jpg)

2000 Sprint RS 955i

Picked her up yesterday for $2000, clean title, 11,038 miles. New battery a couple weeks ago, received a tuneup in the shop last week. The guy already knew he was going to get either $2500 trade-in or $2000 cash at the local dealership towards an FJR 1300, so he dropped the price to $2000 (advertised on CL as $2500 FIRM) when I told him I didn't want it.

The reason? It feels like a bit too much bike for me. I was really hoping to upgrade from the Ninja 500 (still have it, as you can see in the pic) to a nice and calm 650 Twin (Ninja or SV650S) but I didn't have the money to go that new. I've wanted a triple of some kind for a long time, so that's why I've been barking up the Triumph tree. However, I am a little nervous about this bike.

I've got about 8k miles on the Ninja and another 1k on my first bike before that (Suzuki Savage, the LS 650). I'm a very cautious rider, rarely go above 10 over the speed limit, exercise restraint, defensive driving, etc. I trust myself with the usual aspects of why someone would worry about having a powerful bike, but I've just gotten so used to the flickability and ease of experience with the Ninja that I'll feel much more concerned with the bike itself while riding the RS than in actually enjoying the ride. Will that disappear quickly with some riding time put in, or should I listen to that questioning inner voice?

I'm hoping to get some Triumph love thrown my way here, and possibly some sage advice or anecdotes from personal experience, because I'd like to love this bike and come to be completely comfortable with it. But also, with the deal I got on it, and the condition it is in, I could easily flip it, or do a partial trade with someone who has a bike in the range I was looking for who wants to upgrade themselves.

For a little more info on me, I'm 5'10", so I can just about flatfoot both sides at a stop, and am 165 lbs. During the test ride I decided to "open her up a bit" at 4500 rpm and my mind was blown. I was going 50 mph in 2nd gear faster than a blink, and brought it back down quickly to the speed limit of 40 on that road but was left quite impressed with the oomph you get from a triple in that part of the powerband.

What think ye of my first Triumph?

Nice Sprint RS!  I would recommend to keep riding it to see if it becomes part of you or not.  It should be pretty docile if you short-shift it.  Make sure you got a clear line before you open it up again.  You should eventually get used to it.  I wouldn't rush to sell it - it's not like it will depreciate - you got a great deal.

Here's my Triumph from yesterday-

What a great price on a cool bike!  I hope you bond with it, poffpaul.  The only certainty is that the lights suck, and the motor is a blast!  Great score to a bargain hunter like me.



Title: Re: Show us yer Triumph
Post by: poffpaul on April 30, 2014, 01:39:41 am
Well, I am already coming around on the RS. I'm pretty sure I was in full self-fulfilling prophecy mode and went into the initial test ride with an already more afraid than cautious mindset.

I've ridden it 3x since then, and the smiles are growing and the discomfort is all but gone. I'm still more cautious than I am on the 500 just in case, but I'm already having a complete blast on this thing.

Not gonna sell the 500 until I have to for rent money, but I'm pretty sure the RS is staying in the stable.

Now, I have new adjustable levers coming (the clutch lever wasn't adjustable, but the set had both clutch and brake so I'll put em both on) and my first order of business will be bar risers so that I'm not leaning so far forward on my hands. Not a problem for short rides, especially if I focus on minimizing it, but I notice it happening after a bit.

Thanks for the advice, I'm definitely glad to be giving it a shot!

Paul-

Excellent stable mate to the Ninja 500.  Just like everyone else said, the 955 triple is a SWEET engine.   :inlove:

I've had an '03 Sprint ST since '06 and think it's about the perfect street engine.  Treat it with some respect and you will be fine.  It is not gonna just flip over and wipe you out at all.  Is it fast?  Ohh yeah it is, but you have to be trying a bit.  Unlike alot of liter sports that WILL loft the front end at will, you can whack the throttle and while it will make the front end light, it is difficult to get the front end to just pop up.

Midrange power is excellent, so you can shift at 4-5K all day long and just surf that torque curve.  I would recommend waiting for a clear straight line before going WOT in 2nd gear and up.

Have fun! :)

Just so you know you have options.  The ST risers are a little higher and will bolt right onto the RS. You will have to reroute your cables. but you can get away with not buying new.

What a beauty Jon!

I just got back from a year in Norway, fired up ST.net for the first time in over a year, and I see that my last post is still on the most recent page of this thread. Quite surprised!

My Sprint RS was stored and not used the whole time I was gone, so I was happy to get her running again. She's definitely excited to be moving.

I never did get the handlebar risers put on, so I'm still debating whether to grab something else before modding or to go ahead and try and do anything I can to be happy with her.

You have the most tempting bike currently out there to me. I haven't ridden the Street Triple R, but I imagine it is all I want. Although a dealership nearby has a Tiger 800 as well...

Nice ride!

Nice bike. I have been looking at these. My untested conclusion is that the 800 is a 80/20 bike. As in 80% road worthy and 20% offroad and more comfortable on gravel roads than rough single track. Rode one once for about 1/2 hour. Nice typical Triumph engine, that is ultra smooth and very linear. Not sure about the gearing though for the rough stuff, though I am assuming that with good offroad tires TKC's etc, it can be pressed into that service but likely still not its first best destiny. In reality my riding is about that 80/20 so it might be a good bike for me in the future. What is also appealing is that Triumphs have never held their value well - I know this from my Sprint ST days - and so there are some great deals out there.

Thoughts on that ?


Title: Re: Show us yer Triumph
Post by: Windblown on September 01, 2015, 02:12:46 pm
I'd say that's about right. You just can't hide the weight of a 500+ lb bike when it decides to go a direction other than the one you desire. That means it is not the optimum choice for exploring ones limits. ;)

The Tiger needs some help to make it ready to go off-pavement for anything much more challenging than gravel roads IMHO.  Handlebars risers, a stronger handlebar, real hand guards, Sump & engine guard, Front fender riser to get more clearance between a knobby tire and the fender, and a better suspension. As luck would have it one can pick up a very lightly used Tiger, buy every farkle/upgrade one could imagine, and still be well under book price for a new one.  If shopping new I'd have to take a hard look at Hondas new offering in this segment. But I wasn't shopping for new and so far this bike is doing exactly what I want to accomplish with it, which is being able to ride long distance, and then explore!

Here's the type of stuff I run it on and I'm unlikely to take it on anything much more challenging while solo riding unless it's an unavoidable obstacle in the way of where I'm going and I'm feeling hard headed. ;)
