Hello Folks,

I picked up my '19 Tiger XCa last July basically because my Trophy crapped out on me before a planned 5000 km trip as I was moving to Eastern Canada. Actually a pretty interesting and intermittent  :112: story about my old Trophy's issues however needless to say @ the Dealer picked out my new Tiger and within hours we were off; first ride and service on it's first journey out the showroom from Vancouver to Ottawa !!

I've never really thought about the distance because I had done it a handful of times on other bikes... however they were all modded and perfectly setup for long distance rides. This 1200 literally had the cases filled and I took off within hours of purchase; and I have to say that was the easiest ride I have ever done on two wheels....and I had done it on my Trophy a couple times and my 1200RT a couple times and this bike did it as well and in some areas I can say better.

So that was pretty much 2019 - and now I am getting ready for 2020 - already planning my trips... and will be trying to upgrade a few items, and found this to be a very popular Triumph site.

Cheers, brbo

Do I have to wait to xx amount of posts to upload a pic ? When I try to upload a pic - it asks for user/pswd and then says the info is invalid ?

 :400: to the family. Also, you can always upload images to Flickr or Smugmug and then copy & paste the BBCode / Share URL here. That's how I share my ride images (through Flickr) And yes, please do post images - we love images.  :821:

hAha 😂 I read the Rules much too quickly on sign up - I just saw ‘Do Not Post URL’s’ key would be to read entire sentence.....

Here’s one shot I have access to from last year just north of Lake Superior in Ontario

BTW is that a "Chocolate Moose" in your picture?  :038:

Welcome aboard! I love the new boxes that Triumph has come out with compared to the ones I have on my 15.
