    Oh yes.
    Several reasons really. Because it has been really reliable, makes a really good road rally bike and it's not really worth a lot of cash due to its mileage. So it's been retired from continental travel and just being used around the UK to help keep the miles down on the 800.
    Hope your new baby works for you.

    The TE630 has been said to the best dualsport ever made. It ranks up there like the Tiger is one of the best adventure bikes ever made. I love them both, but like I say, one could not replace the other. I suppose if it came down to picking one, it would probably be the Husky. It's more versatile, goes more places, but it's just not as fun for hiway touring. 200 miles on the Husky is like 400 miles on the Tiger.

    For really remote places extra fuel is necessary, like Death Valley, Alaska, etc. It gets about 50mpg, so the stock tank will take it about 150 in good conditions. The Kolpin pax puts it at 175-200 miles in rough conditions. The alternative is a Safari tank and it's a bloated, ugly, POS. Yep, it holds like 7 or 8 gallons. And it's about $800. Yikes!

    We did 800 miles in 5 days through Grand Canyon North Rim last year. The Husky was the PERFECT bike for that, RR in my sig.

    Here's the husky on the grand canyon tour, at Bar-Ten Ranch, north rim.

    I got the Tiger in July, have put as many miles on it in 5 months as the husky got in a year and a half. The Tiger just EATS miles. It's just not a dirtbike though. :deal

    Just curious as to what you all were paying for the 2012. I'm definitely buying one soon, just curious as to how extensive the price difference is. Love Erico, and always swing in there when I'm out in Colorado (which is frequently). Hope to give them my business.

    I gave $10,800 for mine back in November... The price was good I believe. They had the only 2 leftover 2012's I could find...

    Good info, thanks. Erico wouldn't be my first choice either, but if I could find a pre-13' somewhere I wouldn't be too picky. Foothills said they'd do $1,000 a 13' right now. Not sure what that will be out the door. Hopefully I'll find out.

    In SW Mississippi, just outside the small town of Port Gibson. There is a lot of history in that area. Check out my Daytrippin thread in my sig for more...
