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. 26XXX miles.

The previous owner was a renowned Triumph technician, and farkled it to the extreme. I made a spreadsheet listing the cost of all the mods, and just what I remembered was easily over $12,000. 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 sear bag.
Front brakes: Brembo calipers, Brembo pads, Brembo fully floating rotors, Brembo master cylinder, Brembo lever, and custom SS lines
Lighting: Euro Tiger Sport dual halogen housing replacement, Clearwater LED driving lights with a dimmer
Electrical: mounted Garmin Zumo 665, mounted Adaptive Radar/Laser Detector, Kisan Chargeguard, Doran Tire Pressure monitoring system, Triumph OEM heated grips, mounted dual heat-troller
3 Seats: Russell Daylong, Triumph Comfort Gel, and stock
2 Windscreens: cut-down stocker for summer, 20" Cee Bailey for cool weather
Miscellaneous: SW-Motech crash bars/footpegs/skidplate/centerstand, Arrow exhaust and tune, Barkbusters, paint-matched rear hugger, front/rear fender extenders, front/rear axle sliders, Stebel horn, tool tube, throttle rocker, Custom gold powder coated wheels, black powdercoated rearsets/exhaust guards/etc., probably much more I'm forgetting

Since I bought it, I replaced the battery 2 months ago, added the short windscreen, added the Russell seat (did the opposite of help my height situation), and bought a stock seat (was going to experiment with shaving it down).

The bad: Both fork seals are leaking and need replacing, and should replace the front pads too - I've noticed a decrease in the braking power due to the fork oil getting on the pads. I would only trust the PO's shop to do the work on the front forks since he did the Racetech upgrades. Also, the rear TPMS sensor battery might need replacing.

$7500 for everything, located near New Haven, CT.
