Default Feeler: Loaded 2010 Tiger 1050 (over $12k 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.







Full Hard luggage


Cases remove with one key, Side racks remove with 1/4 turn fasteners


For light touring, soft rear seat bag zips on/off


Tiger Sport Euro Headlight adds dual low and dual high beam lights (the stock projector lights are notoriously poor, and only one low and one high)


Short windscreen for hot weather, tall windscreen for cool weather.


Aftermarket Brembo calipers, Brembo fully-floating front rotors, and new Brembo pads with only a couple hundred miles


Brembo master cylinder and Brembo brake lever


Racetech valves in front forks, Ohlins rear shock


SW-motech crash bars, Oil pressure gauge, and Stebel Nautilus horn

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 addional passenger weight.
