Nice looking bikes all....

Went to the dealer the other day to look at a used Tiger, but ended up lusting after both the green Street Triple and the red/white Speed Triple.... Gonna try to make up my mind and then probably buy in about 2 weeks or so....

I really liked both - part of me leans toward the Speed since I'm used to bigger 1200-ish cc bikes (K1200RS and R1150R), but my wife rides a 696 Monster and I think the Street would be more complementary to that one...

I used to do LONG trips, but now only do the 2-3 day weekends, so having a big tourer isn't really necessary....

Guess the biggest thing is that I like the wheels and single sided swingarm of the Speed better, but have doubts that something I can't even see while riding is worth an extra $3-4K...
I would like to see common sense used more commonly.
