    Hi all. I'm a returning rider (14 years dormant). Just bought a 2014 Triumph Tiger 800. I used to ride cruisers, so the different style and weight distribution is a little intimidating so far, but I have high hopes for the rides this beautiful machine and I are going to take together.

    Welcome to the family. You do know we the inmates expect a picture of the steed. As here in the asylum the saying is no picture no bike. Well really it is me that says that. But a great bike and get fantastic reviews so enjoy.
    Ride Safe
    Joe.
