This is the rare "blue" tiger, which anyone in the know, knows that this is the fastest of all the colors available.

Be careful, Tom's is the fuel injected model
They are not known for their reliability like the carbureted models. The carb'd models are always running in tip top shape because the carbs need to be pulled off just to get to the air filter, at which time they can be cleaned or adjusted as needed to run at peak performance.

The orange color is the slowest of the bunch.

Let me know if you want to take it for a test ride

Careful Jack, Slo just wants to sell you his Tiger so he can buy mine.


02, if we do Twinny's at 7:24-7:39, we can head up to Slo-ville after and terrorize his playground.

Thanks for your opinion Tom.

So I suppose my answering yes means a no answer from you, and a no answer from me will get a yea from you.
btw
I did an ebay search for tigers and they were all blue.

Ask Slo About WPM??

While Slo's ride may be mint you may want to ask him how many WPM's he has on that thing.. I think it may be more than Kelly Blue Book can account for.

WPM - Wheelie Per Mile...

With the power of this carbureted 885 three cylinder engine I challenge any of you to keep the front wheel on the ground.

Tom how is the Tiger compared to your wee?
In the next few years I am going to need a bike that I can do some serious miles on without ass scream fever. the vibrato on my gs, while minimal for a thumper, is killing me after only about 2-300 clicks. I'm looking for something dependable and uber comfy (and NOT on a German wallet) for a trip I will be doing across country and up to the arctic circle.
thanks for any insights.
Wouldn't it be easier to come ride em both? Holla BIOTCH!!!!

Tentative plan:
7:45 @ Twinny's in Galena-barring bad weather.
Then, perhaps, a spin up to PA (Slo said he might even be available if his dentist doesn't hurt him too bad).

Wayne's in (unless it's raining)
02's out- has to get his back waxed
Hack and Sneaky ?
BrklynZ- out/work
Anyone else???

Hack,with those pics, Slo might have to drop the price.

I'm in unless it's raining. I had my first wet weather experience today and I will say that I did not particularly enjoy it. I need to acquire waterproof pants and boots...

I'll post here tomorrow morning at about 530 if I decide to go or not! I'm most likely attending!

I'm out... twisted a back muscle and can barely make it to work in a cage. Wouldn't be able to make it anyway.

Tomorrow will be the third day in a row sitting in the dentist chair because of a botched crown.

I hate hate hate hate the dentist!

If you guys are up this way maybe one of you can go with me and hold my hand while I get drilled out. Yeah, I know there's a joke in there
I asked my wife to go and hold my hand but she told me to quit being such a bitch and man up.
