My comment on the drive shaft maintenance wasn't meant to degrade the 1200 Tiger.
It was somewhat a surprise to me to already see a discussion on drive shaft maintence
bike hasn't been out that long.
Might consider the bigger Tiger next purchase, so I do like it a lot.
Apologise for any hurt feelings with my last couple posts.
It's fun sometimes to see how some people will get all tuned up and defensive with just a hint of humor about there favourite bike.
