That's why I started getting interedted in the Tiger...it seemed like it was close to a perfect "do everything" bike, and it may be. It just didn't elicit the same amount of joy that the Thunderbird did when I rode them.
Who knows, I have the Winter to think about it, I may change my mind 5 more times by Spring.
You know when I got the biggest grin on the Tiger? When out on it and it started hammering down with rain. The roads were awash with water, stuff id be really uncomfortable rideing on with the TBrd.
I felt totaly safe in that weather on the Tiger, it was a joy.
