My bike is in the shop and there's more drama than I care to repeat because it would bore even myself. But the question I keep falling back on after riding it for almost a year now is "would I buy it again?" The short answer is yes. I am curious what others will say. What other bikes did you consider before buying the Tiger, and would you now trade your Tiger straight across for any of them. Here goes: Triumph, F800gs, KTM 990 Adventure. F800gs, no way. KTM 990, verrry tempting ..., but probably not.
