I've got a question for you guys and gals -

It would have to be answered by someone who has ridden both the new Tiger 800 and a KTM LC8 (950 or 990).

How does the vibration compare between the two of them?

In between the 950 Supermoto I had and the 950 Adventure I bought I had wrist surgery. When I took the new Adventure for my first ride the last 20 miles was an agony. The frequency of the vibration just does something to the steel bar in my wrist that causes pain. It's not a motorcycle problem as I've had no trouble riding my R1200ST for 400 mile trips. Because of this the 950 is in the flea market and I'm on the lookout for something to replace it for a trip to Alaska next year.
