Just picked up 800 roadie

I just picked up a 2012 black roadie.... bought it used with only 2,500 miles on it....

What a great ride.......... So far I have only put about 200 miles on, but I have to say what a great bike....

Hopefully, I can get a few more weeks of riding in before I have to put her away for the winter..... Its not the cold that gets to me, (I can gear up for that) its all the salt the put on the roads up here in NH...

I thought White was the fastest color to make of for some of the blandness! Crap, i should have bought the black one then.

I am very impressed with my Tiger (sounds identical to yours) with a couple of exceptions. The seat....simply must be replaced ASAP. I have about 2000 miles on mine now, owned since new. I took a 3 day, 1500 mile trip and I felt crippled after about 90 minutes in the stock seat! When I got the bike, I immediately added ROX risers, side and top cases. I planned to then get a replacement windshield, although the stock is not too bad considering its small size. I need something larger to keep the bugs off me mainly. But after that 3 day trip, I've put off a windshield indefinity, and are not activily looking for a decent seat.....the Corbin and Saddleman look promissing......

You're lucky. You bought it just as it should be getting broken in. I've got about 2000 miles on mine and it just gets better and better.

If this was directed to my post, you misunderstood. I bought my Tiger new, with 0 miles. I now have 2000 miles on it. Very happy with it other than the seat. I ordered a Corbin seat for it yesterday.
