2005 Tiger 955i new to adventure bikes
Been riding for 6 years, but no more than 200 miles in a trip. Kawasaki Vulcan 500 was nice, but not for long rides and gear. Talked to the Lady, and she said it was ok to buy us a touring bike.
I knew I wanted a triumph, but no idea which one. Shopped for a month, then found two good candidates in Colorado springs on craigslist. We live in amarillo, so we caught a ride with my aunt, one way. Saw the tiger in person first time and thought ''holy crap, that's too big!" However, we had no ride back to Amarillo, and the price was good.... now we own a 2005 tiger!
We have since done several decent rides, and my son and I are riding to Santa fe NM September 1st through 3rd. He has been riding with me for about two years, but only around town. This will be his first camping trip by motorcycle.
There. That's my mandatory first post. Hope to see you guys around.
