My 1999 Tiger (>48,000 miles) has had the odd patch of higher oil consumption but has now settled down again. The only time it got particularly bad was when the breather disc loosened. Particularly hard use doesn't seem to do her any favours - but this is much harder use than anyone would do on a day to day basis. I've heard a few of these rumours of Triumph's high oil consumption from "industry insiders" but for me it has never really been a problem - certainly no worse than large capacity Yamahas I've owned.

I'm also on my original rear shock - would love to replace it but money's too tight. Mine only really started to deteriorate after about 35,000 miles, but feels much fresher since my 48k service - don't know exactly what they did there!
