    Feeler: Loaded 2010 Tiger 1050 (over $10k in mods)


    Purchased this bike last fall. It's a phenomenal motorcycle, but I'm not sure if I'm really gelling with it. Liter bike power is a bit of an overkill for my 20 min, <45mph commute to work. And it's quite tall, and I'm the opposite, so day-to-day riding feels more of a chore, so I'm considering downsizing to something smaller. 27XXX miles.

    The previous owner was a renowned Triumph technician, and farkled it to the extreme. All the weak points of this bike from the factory have been addressed (suspension, brakes, headlights)
    I made a spreadsheet listing the cost of all the mods, and just what I remembered was easily over $10,000. Some of the highlights:

    Suspension: Ohlins shock, Racetech forks, set up for ~180-200lb rider, plus luggage.
    Luggage: Paint-matched Givi E52 topcase and E41 sidecases, on SW-motech racks, all cases with Admore lights. Also Triumph OEM rear seat bag.
    Front brakes: Brembo calipers, Brembo pads, Brembo fully floating rotors, Brembo master cylinder, Brembo lever, and custom SS lines ($3500 for this upgrade)
    Lighting: Euro Tiger Sport dual halogen housing replacement, top/side cases with extra brake/turn signals
    Electrical: Triumph OEM heated grips, mounted dual heated gear controller, green/yellow/red LED voltage monitor, powerlet battery tender port
    2 Seats: Triumph Comfort Gel, and stock
    2 Windscreens: cut-down stocker for summer, 20" Cee Bailey for cool weather
    Protection: SW-Motech crash bars, Triumph handguards, front/rear axle sliders, L/R engine case covers
    Miscellaneous: SW-Motech footpegs/skidplate/centerstand, Arrow exhaust and tune, paint-matched rear hugger, front/rear fender extenders, Stebel horn, tool tube, throttle rocker, Custom gold powder coated wheels, black powdercoated rearsets/exhaust guards/etc., probably much more I'm forgetting

    Battery replaced April 2018
    Forks fully serviced August 2018
    New Brembo front pads August 2018

    Asking $6500 located near New Haven, CT.

    Not sure if you have any interest... but I have an absolutely minty 12k mile 2001 VFR800. Full Givi bag setup, Sargent Seat, Helibars... and I've got a drop in fork cartridge kit for it I haven't yet got to install. I'm kinda pumping the brakes on this bike because I need more legroom for longer rides. Sounds like you have the opposite problem and are looking for something shorter.... I surely couldn't do anything on your bike w/o moving mine, but if you'd be interested in riding it and potentially considering a trade + cash deal for your Tiger, let me know

    Slight maybe. I've put a few miles on a VFR with risers, think it's still too sportbikey of a riding position for me.
    What would you say is the trade value of your bike?

    Bumping this. Fork seals have been replaced, new Brembo pads are in hand, bike will be back together with a fresh oil change this weekend!

    Did 100 miles 2-up with my wife last weekend. With the torque and suspension of this bike, it was unfazed by the addition of a passenger.

    Bump with a price drop.
