Yes it is a little more vibey than the 1200 but in a different way and not a bad way, I wouldn't have really noticed it except for the reviews that I watched before purchasing, certainly wasn't a deal breaker. Might be different sitting on 120km on the highway for hours, but who does that anyhow. Well ok sometimes you have to, but I try and avoid that like the COVID19...

Thanks for the photos. Plenty of room for bike to bike comms.
Carefree wherever you may be.

Congrats on the new ride.
Hey what are those ugly weld lines on the frame under the seat? It looks like a messy job. is Triumph production getting sloppy? I would be interested in the build quality comparison to the tiger 1200. Your opinion that is.

cheers Andrew

  Some of the initial reviews from journalists have commented on this also, but I suspect it is because the rear tail is now aluminum and requires a larger bead for strength.  Not sloppy, just the material.

Or they outsourced the sub-frame to Suzuki  :008:
