Thanks for letting us know about you and your Tigger and congratulations! Im at 80k miles on my 12; only half of yours. Wow! I thought about a new one, but I dont like their parallel twin sounding three cylinder engine and then, when I saw your post, Im motivated to keep mine forever!

Would you be willing to tell us a few things that you have discovered or settled on concerning your bike? Like, have you ever changed gearing from OEM (sprocket sizes) How about your windshield? Is it better or not much from the stock one? Have you settled on a specific oil viscosity or just stuck with the recommended 10w40?

 The only things I've changed are to make it more suitable for extreme long distance riding.

Topbox carrying tools, compressor, puncture kit, 1st Aid,kit, low tack tape, cable ties, Haynes manual and kit rarely needed.
Oxford Tail pack carrying kit needed on ride and over night kit, One gallon water cooler
Five gallon Auxiliary fuel tank plumbed into fuel pump.  Gravity fed.
Standard triumph seat!!!
Two Zumo 660s GPS. One zoomed in one zoomed out on map view
SPOT personal tracker including Medivac recovery worldwide
Power socket by handlebars to charge phone and run Gerbins heated jacket
R and G Bar ends
Two fingered brake and clutch levers
R and G front spindle bungs
Touring / tilting screen
French and Spanish motorway tags
Two hella Spotlights
Headlights and spotlights have Philips extreme lamps
Oxford heated grips
Scott oiler E-system with additional Lube tube
Touratech foldable gear lever
Engine crash bars
Bash plate
The tyres are Michelin Pilot road 5 trail. The rear is good for 12,000 miles . This front is good for around 22,000 miles

I have always got it serviced to the triumph schedule by a qualified mechanic. They highlight wear before it fails increasing reliability

I'm now just short of 180,000 miles

Way to go Phil, hope to see you again on the 2021 Germany trip  :028:

Love the "Standard triumph seat!!!", I take it the multiple exclamation marks are for those who can't manage 50 miles without complaining about the seat  :001:
Now available in "Batman"

The seat problem is really about the standard butt rather than an iron one. See you in Germany. All booked in 😁

 :047: Wow that is an amazing achievement Fazerphil. Well done and hope to reach your next target of 200,000 Miles. Makes me feel I have made the right decision in my new purchase.

Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.
