My Triumph Tiger 955i
I owned my Tiger 955i from 2003 to 2007. I had discovered big trail bikes the year before and I sold my Honda XRV750 Africa Twin and bought my Tiger new
in Sept 2003. The Tiger was only the second new road bike I've owned. By then I had owned over 60 bikes and my Tiger 955i I was among the best. A great
engine, super smooth, good character, fast but not furious with an upright riding position and a comfy seat. I managed 55 mpg giving a 220+ mile range to
provide real touring potential. At the time the Tiger 955i was the sportiest of the big traillies and I enjoyed a good owners fraternity. I part exchanged it for a
1050 Tiger from Lings in July 2007. I had no faults with the Tiger 955i in 26,000 miles including 2 trips to the Alps, a long tour of Scotland and 2 tours of
Wales. I was sorry to see the Tiger 955i go.

In 3 years I covered 26,000
trouble free miles. Generally
the finish coped well with life in
the UK. (Except for the
cadmium plated pipe fittings
which looked shabby after just
a few washes).
Overall the Tiger lasted better
than any other bike I've has

I despair when UK Bike Magazines go on about legendary Honda build quality and are disparaging of Triumph motorcycles. My previous bike, a Honda
Africa Twin was secondhand, 3 years old with under 20,000 miles. Under the body panels it had bad corrosion everywhere, a badly rusting exhaust, the
brake calipers were always binding and the suspension was worn out, especially the damping in the front forks. In comparison my Tiger 955i was a
revelation in build quality. I sold my Tiger after 4 years and it still looked mint.
I created this site in 2004 with Yahoo Sitebuilder (Now sold on to Aabaco), I still use Sitebuilder but for the last 10 years there has been a bug in my site . If I make a change to the Toolbar Sitebuilder will
randomly delete text from site pages. I split my site into sub domains and I have more or less eradicated the bug which I now know is caused by the Advanced Navigation Bar Editor. If a text box contains
gibberish it is not my fault. I would not recommend Sitebuilder, unfortunately I am stuck with it.
