I still want to ride both bikes at some point as I still find them interesting, but I didn't get either. I work at a Triumph dealer and found out we get a very good discount through the employee purchase program. I started liking the brand a lot since I started this summer and decided the Tiger 800 was worth it since I'd be paying about what a normally priced 2012 V-Strom 650 might cost, and about what used NT700V's are going for. It's an awesome machine.
