Is the beak and pannier frames standard fitment or add ons? Not that I'd want a beak on a touring bike.

The beak is standard. Pannier frames extra.

You can definitely see in that last photo how the engine has been cantered forward a touch.
Thanks for posting. Im on the fence about another Tiger or a different bike but the GT will be my Tiger of choice if I stay in the Triumph family.

Looks good. What combination of side case sizes did you go for and how symmetrical are they ?

I'll probably end up with one in the future if the lower suspension doesn't significantly reduce load bearing capacity as I would be touring two up quite regularly.

I have Give Trekker panniers from my previous 800. These do not fit directly to Triumph frames but a small bracket can be made to enable them saving 450!
I think my cases are 38/52 and do look unsymmetrical from behind. Pity they are not waterproof!

222kg payload for all GT models and the basic 900.

I have those too. I might get some slip-over covers made.
