As a somewhat new owner of a 955i Tiger, bought it last fall just before knee surgery, I want to introduce myself on this forum. I spend most of my time on ADVRider, but you people are much more knowledgeable about these Triumph's. I am not new to the brand, as my first motorcycle was a 1953 with a Bonneville motor in it. My next one, wish I still had it!!, was a 66 TT Special. I now realize how rare these are, as I never saw even one of them all the years we had the vintage races in Steamboat Spring, CO. I bought a Steamer a few years ago and did a 5 week, 6600+mile road trip on it. It was in poor cosmetic shape, so it got traded for a Wee Strom. The Strom is a fine motorcycle, but does not compare to the triple. I now have the good old triple growl to listen to every time I ride.
