I actually got to take a decent ride today, 40+ degrees and sunshine. After feeling trapped inside by the miserable cold weather of late, it was fantastic to be out on the open road.
I got to really see the difference getting rid of the closed back stock air filters, the Unilfilters for the stock airbox today, big difference in mid range power the best $30 I've ever spent in terms of "bang for your buck".
Why are these Triumphs such fun to ride? I have faster, smoother, more comfortable and better handling bikes, but this 73 Tiger is just has something you can't put your finger on. I had a meeting I had to go to this afternoon, it took a lot of self discipline to turn around and head home at the appropriate time, I just wanted to keep going and going
