From the TRIUMPH Tiger List on Yahoo !
Group folklore. One of our ex-members (J Sagar) and
one of the other listers were having some friendly banter and it was
mentioned that the bike look quite industrial and J had a picture of his in
front of coal-skip. The conversation went on about coal-powered,
steam-driven etc....so it's been Steamers and Girlie efi's from there on
just have a look on the eye-linered face of the 955 , you understand why.
and the Roadie name came from the same group maybe cause when the
new tigers came out they are not as adventure type bike oriented in looks at
and there you have it
