So if the white ones are the fastest and the orange/red ones are the most unstable, what does that make the black ones?

been wanting one so bad. every time I open this thread I go searching the forums and trader pages.

Then after some time.... reality check hits me.

Moreover, don't understand why the the huge insurance difference between the Tiger and F800GS.

What is the difference?
I don't think it would make any difference on my policy with Progressive.

There could be a different rating based on published horsepower.

Okay here is a question for the Masses.

My 13 Tiger is White and with 'Tiger" in orange. GtiKyle's is White with "Tiger" in blue. Why the difference in the color on the same year? Production date is different?

Oh and Kyle, nice Bug, ive got an all original '69 with a 1500cc Single Port.

That's a good question. I believe mine is a changeover. I think the build date was June of '12, making it one of the first '13 models. I also noted that my buddies '13 tiger has an adjustable clutch lever; mine doesn't.
