You bastages are no help, no help at all That thing costs less than the last tiger I made an offer on. Not to mention it has much more panache.

I can get a pretty cheap flight to Fargo...

Crash, you're my last hope. Tell me about parts availability on a somewhat rare Italian bike.

Would be a hell of a ride back to MS. I'll go get it for ya next weekend. All you have to pay is the ticket there. I'll take care of gas and lodging home.

BTW, I am helping, you just don't realize it yet.

Sounds like you're talking yourself into a Capo. How much you want for the tiger?

Somewhat rare? Parts availability? There's not even parts available for the fucking current models. If you need so much as a valve stem replaced you'd best book a flight to Noale, Italy.

I like the Tiger. It's not as offroad worthy as the Capo, or a damn Vespa, but it is the most comfortable bike I've ever owned and will haul ass. The Capo is very nice, but not what I want. I was just offering my help in pissing off your wife.

Um... but you would hate it and it's not a Triumph or BMW so it's questionable if it's even a motorcycle. Does that help?
Sounds like an untaxed Duc to me...
