I have a bit of a dilemma. I have a 2005 955i Tiger with full hard luggage which we use for touring. So far we've done 3 big trips around Europe. My wife is not a biker but enjoys the travelling. With the topbox she is totally relaxed and comfortable on the bike and happily sits as pillion all day. I've been considering changing the bike for a while and will stay with Triumph. The new 1050 Tiger has many attractions,all the tests are positive with the exception of pillion provision. The 2 issues are seat height,my wife is 5'0" and may struggle to get onboard with panniers and topbox. The other is that the Triumph hard luggage is not as capacious as the older 955 luggage.The RH pannier seems almost useless. So I'm thimking maybe 1050ST ?Concerned that as the pillion seat is high and the rider is cantered forward this may cause a problem,also how does it affect handling. And does the topbox also affect handling as it seems to be perched very high on the bike ? My final query is whether the ST will be a fun bike to ride.I know it's a great bike as 2 of my mates have them,but the Tiger seems to be a more fun experience. Fortunately I also have an 03 Speed Triple which is great fun,although part of my plan is to reduce my current 3 bikes to 2. So I'm in a dilemma and any opinions would be helpful. The obvious thing to do is just keep what I have,but like many I like buying bikes !
