Not mine but a demo bike. Don't tell the dealer.

My apologies if you were referring to the 800's.

Yes, Fano is the king of taking the 955i off road.

LOL! That road bit is about 15mins from my flat, love that road! And I'm glad they gave those bikes a little bit of abuse, I really don't like that dealer

Howdy,

I've been watching ADVrider for years. Just recently purchased a clean used Tiger 1050 ABS, so I decide to sign-up.

Here she is. Also installed a Cee Bailey's windscreen.

By-the-by, my Sprint is for sale in the Flea-market. Hope to sell her soon so I can farkle the Tiger. Her pix is below. Love those triples!








She's in the Flea-market.....

I wish I could get my son to convert to a Tiger. Then we could get off the dam pavement here in Colorado and see the 'Real" Colorado together.

He won't go near gravel with the Sprint. Guess I can't blame him/ When I was his age I polished my bike more than I rode it too.

I can relate to his fondness of the Sprint. Its geared rather high and a very aerodynamic motorcycle. The Sprint can really effortlessly cruise at uber high speeds.

The Sprint gives a lot of confidence when turning into a deep curve. They hit-the-nail in the handling and front end weight bias formula.

But…the Sprint is impossible on any unpaved roads. No turning radius, too much weight on the hands, TALL first gear. Miserable conditions for the rider. But, she wasn’t meant for that. The Sprint was meant for being late for work and passing cars from 80 to 150 miles per hour. I’m serious. I also have a license to fly.

IF he would spend some time on a Tiger, he would find it much more comfortable. Much better braking. Much better “real world” suspension. The Tiger will still hang with the Sprint at legal speeds.

When he is older, he will wish he had invested more time riding with ole Dad. That’s the bottom line and sometimes a difficult idea to sell.
