I love the Tiger.
Lots of down sides - small engine, it's only an 850. Thus, nearly guaranteed to be on the main jet all the time. So it sucks juice.
Needs a sub-frame. Needs a re-design to the air filter (done).

But it is what I had at the time & it is doing the job that I want it to do.
It's fun in the scrub, less so on the highway.

To stay with a Tiger, I'd go the 1050. That would need lots of work too, I suspect.

Otherwise, I'll vote for the Suzukis - 1400 or the 1250. Can you get A/T and M/T tyres for those wide wheels?

XJR or CB1300 ?

Much of the other stuff is starting to get old.
Much of the new stuff is getting too technical and perhaps a bit light (fragile?) for an all road sidecar?
