Tiger 800 frame

Why Triumph keep the concept of an all-weld-together frame, subframe and passenger pegs?????
That's a major reason that keep me far away from this bike. But if it was not of this, i'll consider an XC 2013 to the place of the street triple.....maybe....

It's a non issue as far as I'm concerned. People will claim this and that but so far from reading the various forums there is only one 800 with photo evidence of possible damage - definite mangled foot peg bracket. Even that as far as I remember does not fully state scenario leading to damage.

Do you plan on crashing your Tiger on a regular basis? If not, I wouldn't worry about. And usually if there is any frame damage your insurance will take care of it.

I know, but seriously, for a companie like Triumph, an aluminium subframe BOLTED to the main frame would be the way to go, with the passenger pegs bolted too.

This remember me my first 1987 KLR 650.... We're in 2012

I agree with you 100%, it would be the way to go. I guess that is how they keep cost down though. I figure the day I bend a passenger peg I'll cut them off completely and then weld on threaded tabs to accept passenger pegs from another bike.

Is'nt the idea that a rider can weld any part of the frame anywhere in the world as it's made of steel? Not possible with alumium as the welding of that metal is a much more difficult 3rd world task.

I thought the passenger peg mounting odd also. When I ride it, I forget all about such mundane issues. I'd rather just ride the bike than complain about it.
