In the UK there are @1600 f800s on the road, and @4000 Tigers.

Triumph decimated the BMW sales over here, perhaps partly due to patriotism.

I remember the panic about the welded-on rear foot pegs when the Tiger was launched.

Hello folks

I have Suzuki part no 14730-31D-00.

I think this is a DRBig heat guard for the exhaust. New and never used.

The GSR, aka the 'Gizzer', in 600cc form was rubbish (very bad FI, later acknowledged by Suzuki) and I've only ever seen one of the revised model.

Well said. I also don't get why people want to swap-out suspension, seats, and screens after riding 50-100 miles on a new bike.

Did 200 miles today, with some other UK Tiger owners.
