Yes got real lucky, story was an older guy bought it didn't get on with it but kept it rather than sell it...

First reg 1/12/97, Sep 00 907 mls, Apr 02 998 miles,  Apr 03 1286 mls, Apr 04 1564 mls,  Apr 05 1893 mls, Dec 07 1981 mls,  Dec 08 48900 mls. Had its second owner who put 3K on it last year before I picked it up Jan 09. :lol:

I guess some guys here would do that mileage in one trip  :shock:

Amazing find, not going to be like that for much longer I'll bet. Go buy a lottery ticket now  :D
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

I have been a dedicated lurker for this and the previous Triumphtiger.com, I have a 98 BRG Tiger with Thunderbike bars, full Givi set, the crappy centerstand (slowly being beveled, due to its low hanging design) Powerbronze tall windsreen, Scottoiler touring model, second replacement wheel, the first replacement was a wider wheel from a Girly, now I am using a 96 Triumph Trophy rear wheel. This bike is the most fun bike I've owned up to this point. Its not the fasted, best handling, prettiest, but I have logged over 70K miles on this and still havent had my fill.  :P (sorry my garage is a mess)
Trophy rear wheel
And still I get the bike off-road

Thx.  It's a double edged sword, though...as much fun as I've had with it I wish it was as nice and clean as some of you guys (and as nice and clean as it was when I got it).

What I really need is to find one like akendall's...keep that one pristine and continue thrashing the one I've got!

Hmm, I see them fine. Perhaps they needed a while to generate on the site? They are posted from photobucket. Anyone else having the same problem?
