Diesel Dave:
I have just aquired a '96 steamer and this is my first post here.

Although it's far from standard as it has a 1000cc diesel triple and aftermarket Harley 6 speed gearbox, so I can claim to have the lowest powered Tiger out on the road but probibly the most economical.

I need to fit a pair of big ally pannier cases - any recomendations for carrier frames and boxes?

Cheers
Dave

John Stenhouse:
Where are you Dave? If your stateside this is no use, but metal mule make panniers and frames or go to the BMW gser site and look for Verns luggage, he makes it bespoke so no worries about fit.

Welcome to the site
We want pictures of said beast
you have my interest  :thumbsup

Diesel Dave:
Piccies here:









There are actually 3 in existance, the first is a blue one with the smaller 900cc motor



Mine's the next in line with the 1000cc lump, and retained the hydraulic clutch actuation:



The last has the same 1000cc motor but also has a supercharger:



This one needs more development as so far there is little gain from the supercharger.

I'm in Essex in the UK and we have an annual diesel bike rally at the end of May at Billingshurst, Bat & Ball Pub.

All are welcome - so come long and take the mickey.

Cheers
Dave
