You owning a Victory never made sense to me!!

Maybe you should wait and see the new Multistrada coming out - it may combine the soul of the Tuono with some of the practicallity of the Tiger.

My current ride is an 08 Tiger. A great bike, for what it is. Smooth engine. Too smooth for me. I came off of an Aprilia Tuono (05) and wanted something more comfortable. The Tiger is comfortable. It just has no soul. It does everything well, just not spectacular.

The local dealer has an 07 Tuono with 5000 miles on it that I want so bad.

I am about ready to list the Tiger in Flea Market.

I really need about 5 bikes, then the Tiger would be one of them. $$$$$
