    Looks good actually, but I wonder how it both goes & handles.

    Great bullet-proof engines with lotsa torque.
    Heavy frame with spar going over the engine making them top heavy.
    Suspension wasn't great but fixable with modern gear.
    More of a design exercise, most probably inspired by the A/T, Tenere & GS's of the time.
    I don't think there are any in LoS though, as Tiger Mk1 pre-dates the short period
    when there was a Triumph dealership in the late 1990s early 2000.

    ...if you can find a pick-up in a remote location! ;-)

    But with 100 mpg you should be able to go remote and back.
