Have at last signed on to the site. I bought my Tiger 955 last October trading in a BMW K1200GT for it as I have moved to France and needed a bike that met their bizzare 100bhp limit over here!! Yep I know it is 105bhp but I can register it over here.
Also had to sell my hayabusa which I had for 6 years and loved to bits but all had to go.
I have to say I throughly enjoy riding the Tiger, it is a bit tall but nowhere near as tall as the BMW GS adventure I tested, I am surprised at the easy smooth power it has.
The dealer was excellent and even took off my BM sat nav system and put it onto the Tiger!! It is an 05 model and had a few extras on it from Thunderbike, engine bars, radiator cover, scotoiler, etc, etc.
Anyway hope to get a few miles under the belt touring this year if I get time off from the renovation work!!!
One thing that did catch me out I have to admit was I did not realise it had a plastic fuel tank!!! thought they were illegal on a road bike, used to be when I started biking 27 years ago. Yep I bought a magnetic tank bag!!!!!
You see you do learn something new every day.
