Keystiger, I may be in need of a motor in the next year or two. On the way back from D2D last year I made a bone head mistake, pumped some diesel. I got most of it out and it ran just fine, but now my coolant level has dropped a little bit in the overfill bottle. The ability to use a 1050 opens up more options for finding another motor. I love the bike and don't want to replace it.
I do plan on a Tiger 800XC, but as a more dirt worthy companion than a replacement.
