The Tiger 800 street model sounds about perfect for what I'm looking for.
I have enough dirt bikes, two of which can do light touring pretty well.

I'm the patient type, though, so will wait awhile until the hype settles.
Hope to do a test ride soon as the Phx Tiger dealer has an XC for demo.

I talked to another dealer in Texas and his suggestion was to put down a deposit if I wanted one this year... they're selling like hotcakes!

The only negative I have read seems to be fuel economy/range and non-adjustable suspension.
If it gets 200 miles on a tank, it's probably fine for me.

As far as suspension, can't people upgrade the forks and shocks themselves if they need more capability?

I'll probably pop for one this Fall.
Look forward to something with some zip and comfort on the street.
