Well, I don't have anyone to ride with that likes the type of riding I like, which is the type you do. My GF rides her SVS less and rides pillion more. While not a big deal, my Tiger is difficult in awkward situations, two up. I've been longing for a Tiger 800 Roadie and would do a trade with someone who has one and would like a 1050. I simply need a more manageable bike that I can run down any road I choose. Manageable size is one thing I like about her SVS. But, I can't deal with the legroom. A Wee is just too big, for what it is. Anyway, just wish there were someone in my area that'd like to ride whatever it is we come upon, wherever. Oh yeah, they need to be cool in a relaxed sorta' way.

I'm sorry, for your loss. I just lost a bicycling partner, a few weeks ago. He was hit by a car.

Those are big miles!
