The bikes we rode on this trip will hopefully find some good homes or another adventure. After attempts to negotiate a deal that all parties would be satisfied with there was no common ground.
So…..officially we are and remain proud BMW owners with nothing but fond memories of the great ride we had on 2 GREAT bikes the Triumph Tiger 800XC. Will we be future owners? Only time will tell. Oh and yeah, our finances need time to heal...
Back then riding this road was more than an adventure!
As we work on our long DVD for us I think I will post some short videos here as I make them. This was on July 31st, 2011 when we made the short ride from Skagway to Whitehorse. On this day we were hit with rain in White Pass and then nothing but sun to Whitehorse. White pass was a total white out.
Full screen with HD is best!
Triumph has recalled 668 Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC (2010-2011) motorcycles due to center stand issues.
Triumph says the optional accessory center stand assembly on Triumph Tiger 800 and 800 XC motorcycles built from Sept. 2010 through June 2011 contains a defective return spring that may break. If the spring breaks, the center stand may unexpectedly drop and drag along the road surface, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the return spring and repair the affected motorcycles free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet reported an owner notifications schedule. Owners may contact Triumph Customer Service at 1-678-854-2010.
Triumph’s Safety recall is No. 430. Owners may also contact the Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.org.
