No doubt - I love my Tiger. Loved my Scrambler as well. But my desires keep evolving. I want to explore back of beyond and I doubt my ability on the Tiger to do so. When I go cross country or any other long trip, my time is the cheapest thing I own and would hope to avoid the slab wherever I go. SO, the WR (and a few select others
) would be a better fit methinks. My bike is my only vehicle too, much as I would love to have a stable I can't afford one.
