My Tiger 800 ABS roadie is my 5th Triumph, 3rd of the Hinckley generation.
So far, it's fast-becoming my favorite. My previous bikes were (counting backwards) a 2005 Tiger 955i and a 2000 Sprint RS. While I just never felt completely at home on the Tiger 955i, the Sprint RS was a bike that fit like a glove for as long as my body let me ride it.
Yes, I would buy the same bike again tomorrow, no question. I have had no complaints or issues with anything. The only problem I had so far was snaking the wires through the handlbars for the heated grips. That problem was me alone, and was fixed with a beer and a cigar break.
Granted, I'm only up to 4400 miles on it, but it's been just great. The ABS has kicked in just once (that I noticed), and made me a convert. I don't otherwise even notice its there. I'll probably go the the Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires when the stock Pirelli's are gone, but it looks like I've got another 4 or 5000 miles left in these.
The deal is OK. You can't expect much more, though you should get him to give you at least 20% off the accessories you want along with that deal.
