I know there can be only one Le Tigre so I thought El Tigre might be feasible but my Spanish is even worse than my French! Anyway, due to a slight technical hitch (called work), I now won't pick it up until the weekend after next. Shame really because it's warmed up a bit over here. Still, gives me more time to trawl the forums for info and e-bay for bits! (Like I haven't already).

All info and opinion on the Tiger gratefully received, by PM or in beasts so no hi-jack.

Hope to post some photos of the maiden voyage so fingers crossed that it's a sunny day.

Keep up the good work.

I wonder if TDP got snow, and did she go for a ride in it?

Thanks for the comments and pictures on the Yamaha. Was kinda wondering about the bike. Rather read reports such as yours rather than magazine hype. But, being on a retirement income, the Bandit is gonna be here for a long time I hope.

Thanks. This motor is amazing. Previous owner had the TOR exhaust installed and the TOR tune for the ecm. I'm gonna hafta watch the throttle hand, to much fun to twist and go.

It was hard to replace my high mileage GS, but this one will do nicely. The yellow was a requirement.

Yep, the motor is the crown jewel of the bike......The reason we all should buy any bike, really.
