Thanks, I figured it was some kind of sarcastic reference!

I'm eagerly anticipating the new Tiger. Looks like it could be my next bike.

Not disputing this, but the eyelashes over the headlights might have something to do with it...



Or did the eyelashes come after the nickname?

Hmmmmmmm.

Hey Frank, I'm sure glad I spun off from the group when I did. I would've been fucked on that hill climb. You run that Tiger around like it's a 200lb. thumper. It was great hanging out with you and Miro and the others. Great pics. too!
