Here's snap of my 95 at the bottom of the Copper Canyon in Mexico, just after the starter sprag clutch failed with me having to make a 7,000ft climb on gravel road fully loaded. The starter failed after high centering on a huge rock while crossing a washout on a super rough 2 track road, that tore 2 fins off the oil pan & broke an engine mounting lug. The road in the photo is the highway, not the rough road. I consider it lucky I got to ride it home, push starting it all the way.
Gawd I was hoping NOT to stall it (didn't, but still had 3,000 miles to get back home). It was the next day when I discovered NO Triumph dealers in all Mexico at that time.

Yup. I'm here. And with me is my steamer (a.k.a "Tiger Trail 900")





Ain't it a beauty?  :oops:


Have fun!

Crap. What am I doing wrong when it comes to posting images? I have been using straight html to embed the image in my post. A previous message that I posted worked just fine doing this, now it's not doing the deed. Any tips?

Oh...I did read the sticky on photo posting but that wasn't much help.

Thanks!
Cheers!

Not sure about all your fancy HTML stuff...but I just use the 'img' tags, with the URL of the pic inside.  But maybe something is broken...I'll try putting it here:

Looks like it's not working for me, either.  Maybe your photo hoster doesn't allow linking like that.  I'll try from smugmug to see if that's the case:



Edit:  Worked from smugmug.  Must be something with google photo hosting - maybe a setting you can change?

Good luck, though - we want to see those pics!

(I cheated and opened them on my own, though - NICE!)

The Steamer is powerful. Makes me smile everytime I see it. Can't wait until next season, will have to get some side panniers by then. The Givi V35 looks nice, but I am leaning towards aluminium panniers. Anyone tried Zarges or D‰rr on the Steamer?

Heh - I don't know why my gallery on google won't load any longer - but, I've managed to move all of my images onto my FTP server.

Nice shots Patrick. Love the high front fender. Have you done anything to add protection to the radiator?

Some pics from a ride last weekend near my house in southern Maine.  The Steamer is a '95 - a recent convert to the dirt, admirably ridden...(Zahi - you on this board?!?!?!?)









Boring video (he stayed up):


Better video (he didn't!!):
