Just bought my Navigator a couple of days ago - took it for a run in to the Coast and back and (with fairly spirited riding ) got over 300 kms to a tank.

Am really happy with the bike, the power delivery is so much fun! Coming from a DRZ400, keeping some low down torque is good....

By the way, do they let you ride the full road coarse at Mount Panorama?

It is my brother-in-law's bike. I was sticking up some pics on the Triumph Tiger thread (my bike in green) so I put some up here too.

I really like the bike, it is great to ride and the Suzuki TL engine is just excellent.

As long as it is not a race weekend, it is a public road. People live on the Mt, with the track as their street address!!!

Well, like I always say, there is "Ugly but interesting" and just plain old ugly... I reckon she is an interesting bike to look at, once you get past the first shock!

Once it's started up however - then it really turns heads!

Suzuki DL1000 powerplant in a smaller package...
Yup, save your pennies buy a DL. It has the TL1000 power plant, not the DL, so it has more get up and go but shorter engine life.
I rode one on a demo ride - unimpressed (handling was poor compared with a DL 1000, even more so compared with the DL 650).

They are much happier with new rubber. The standard Metzeler rubber didn't really seem to work with the bike set-up.

Scott has replaced his tyres, and I think it is great fun. A bit more flickable than a Strom
