Now heres the confession, i never test rided the tiger so i have no idea if i like the ride
All i done was sat on it and went "uh oh" thats when i knew i wanted it. Has anyone else bought a brand new bike without test riding it?
I bought mine without test riding it too. I went there wanting a white one, wanting a roadie, and wanting a deal on it because it had a whopping 131 miles on it. I brought my helmet, gloves, boots, jacket and riding pants with me (in the car), fully expecting to ride it before making the descision.
Like you in a way, I saw it and bought it without even sitting on it. I just KNEW it was the right bike for me, and I was absolutely positively correct. If my wife had been there, however, I would still be wrong.
