I bought my Tiger this summer with 15,500 miles on it. Finally at 18,000 miles in November, I took the bike to my Triumph dealer for service. Not having a history on it, I scheduled a 12K service to be done (valve clearances and a few fuel fitting/line upgrades) along with new oil, coolant and filters. They also discovered a new chain and sprockets were due. It was salty but now I know where I am with it. The bike runs great, has decent power and is definitely not a cookie cutter model. I did drop it in the drive by not paying attention to what I was doing, but no major damage. It shook my confidence some, but it is top heavy. Not much for dirt roads yet, but it'll do it I'm sure. I can't wait until next summer for a trip to Vermont on this beast.


Upgrades:
Shifter lengthened to get my size 13 clodhopper under it, Happy trails panniers that look killer and hold a ton of stuff (a lot of my adventures are to the grocery store) and, SW Motech centerstand from Twisted Throttle. Looking at possibly getting a Wolfman Enduro tank bag before the trip to VT to hold small items just for convenience. Addded pigtail(s), one each for Tourmaster heated jacket and Battery Tender.
