I have been riding for 33 years and had every type of bike out there.
Sometimes 3 or 4 at the same time....I bought my '05 used in 07 and have since sold off the other bikes I had at the time. The Tiger does everything well.
Pleasure on the street (triple motor is amazing) Comfortable, agile, quick, 1 or 2 up, ample storage options, lots of after market gadgets available, and as stated you can pick up a good used one for the same or less than a new much smaller cc bike with less farkles. You will also find it to be much faster than your GS. Engine pulls like a locomotive!!!!
Heres mine doing a little trail riding.
Happy Tiger Hunting!
You won't regret the purchase.
