Triumph Tiger 1050 not a tourer?!

I dont know why you guys say the Tiger 1050 can't go off road or isn't a good tourer. Here is mine. It's the best darn bike I've ever had. I can tour, track and do canyon runs on it and it always asks for more!

Loved the pictures! Where was this? I am planninga similar adventure on my Tiger 800XC  and I am looking for terrain like this! Would be helpful.

I can in return give magical routes in South Africa to go explore...

My Tiger Photos

Hi guys!

 

Thanks for the positive comments.

The photo of me in the yellow helmet was taken on the famous "Snake" portion of Mulholland HWY in Agoura, California which is a few miles above the equally famous "Rock Store" which is a great motorcycle hangout.

The photo of my bike parked on the dirt trail going up hil was taken on Quatell Cyn road off the 33 Hwy by Ventucopa, California. The profile photo of my bike was taken at the Carizzo Plain National Monument off the 58 Hwy right before setting up camp.

The model of bag is called "Colorado".The company that makes it is called Watershed. they honestly make the best dry bags. Their website is drybagsDOTcom..Its a side opening dry bag with a built in air valve for removing the air in the the bag once its packed. Which is incredibly useful and gives me more room to sit.
