There is a reason they put a 190 rear tire on that MTS1200, be very carefull about test rides, advise to leave the wallet at home

Well, yes, lol. I haven't been able to ride a Multi, but I did ride a Diavel with the same engine and the power was, well, addicting to say the least. I really like my 1050, but a 160hp twin is hard to beat.

Just realized my happy accident to buy my 2011 Sprint GT turned me into a collector!!! I only have one bike in my collection, but I have one bike in my collection! It really is about how you say it? I turned 6000 miles on my first anniversary with the bike earlier this month. I have used it for commuting, I have used it for cruising with pillion, I have used it to erase interstate between my home and family, and I have sliced up some Appalachian foothills with it too. Great all around bike!

Nice to see you're not too far from me, next time I'm going down to the Natural Bridge area with some fellow riders to do some carving I'll give you a heads up!

After Googling the Tiger 1050 Sport, it got me thinking that is one were to throw a belly pan under it, it would be a sort of reincarnation of the RS.

I cobbled together the pannier racks this weekend and as a result my ZX14R Hyper-sport is now a Hyper-sport tourer

Givi E21 ( 21 liter) top loaders, and a Motocentric tail bag ( 23 liter) should be all I need for touring next season ... That and my
Cortech tank bag (14liter).


With only 4 bolts, the racks attach / detach in a couple of minutes. The panniers are 36" wide, same as the mirrors.


The racks as shown weighs 6lbs and the Givi's 7.5lbs for a lightweight 13.5lb setup. Aluminum tubing
is 6061 T6 and the adapter plates are made with HDPE plastic. Paint is Krylon ultra flat black.

Adding an adapter plate as a top rack for my Bestem or Givi E360 would be a simple matter,
but I'll stick with the soft tail bag for now. Tom

Question Does Triumph Listen to Riders?

I do not want to get crabby but I have got to ask myself that. In 2004 they retired the Trophy and offered the Rocket as a substitute. I owned a Trophy 900 and believe me the Rocket III was no substitute. I have said for years that they should have re-engined the Trophy with the FI 955 and it would have been wonderful.

Now they are dropping the Sprint for the new Trophy, while nice I just do not see it. What would be cool would be a bike like the Sprint but getting under 440 lbs 200 kilos dry with out bags with the smaller triple engine in it. In other words make a SPORTS touring bike. This would be aimed at those of us who love to occasionally drag a knee but still commute on a bike and tour a few weeks out of the year.

Any body ever toured on a Street triple?

Thanks John. Had you stopped by on Sunday I'd have put you to work.

I though their light weight would appeal to you .
The simple little E21's have long been my favorites. They're durable and inexpensive ... as Givi's go ($170.00 pair).
As top loaders, they're easy to pack and hold lots more than one would think possible.
