    Default Triumph Tiger 1050

    Iím looking for a replacement engine - one of our club members ran a bearing (in the casing).

    I rode mine to 122000km with no problems apart from an overheating issue just after I bought it, but suspect that was actually related to a crash the previous guy had. Have a bunch of mates who owned them, none had problems, have seen a few that have over 100000k km on them.

    had a mate who somersaulted his one through a concrete palisade fence, literally the only original stuff left is the tank, main frame, engine and front wheel, rebuilt the bike out of the spares cabinet, still running perfectly.

    Alex de Rapper of Hooleshot Motorcycles toured Botswana, right up to Maun, through the sand and everything on one, even towed a GS out of there.

    oh yes, has a mate who did Sani pass on his, unfortunately due to a combination of inexperience on gravel, tyre choice and trying to keep up, he seriously melted his clutch.
