Not sure if I would miss the Tiger or if the Scrambler will fill the bill. I mainly ride the Tiger on the longer trips & cold weather. Any opinions?
I have also owned Tiger, but replaced it with a Ducati Multistrada because I wanted "more". I use my Multi in a similar fashion to what you've described for your Tiger. It's my "long distance touring bike". It's fast, handles like a dream, and eats up miles like crazy. It's like a Tiger on steroids.
Still, if I had to give up one for the other, I'd ditch the Multi for the Scrambler in a heartbeat.
On paper, the Tiger will win based on it's stats, but for me the Scrambler just feels right. Sometimes less is more.
