Took my first test ride on a 2006 955 Tiger, and have a few questions for longtime owners. I currently ride a 2000 Legend and am looking to upgrade- originally was looking at the Rocket (I know, apples and watermellons), but after reading a lot of positive feedback on the Tiger I decided to consider it as well. A note- the bike only had 7 miles on it, so during the ride I had to keep it below 3500RPM, thus not giving me any clear impression of its performance potential. The transmission seemed to be rather sticky at first, but got a little better after the first 15 miles or so. Does this break in over time, or is it something that you just have to learn to deal with? I have never ridden a bike that sits that high before- felt kind of like being in a 2 wheeled SUV- how long does it take to get used to that position? Do you consider it a pro or a con after you have adapted to it? I am just under 6', but can't stand flat-footed on the bike- a little unnerving to me. It seems pretty agile to me, but I didn't really have the opportunity to do any real technical riding- How would you rate it in the twisties? Are there any common mechanical problems that have caused any of you to believe that you made the wrong choice in Bikes? What would you consider the higher end of the envelope to be speedwise on the highway? How would you rate its accelleration- particularly compared to the big bus if you have ridden both? One of the reasons I am getting rid of the Legend is comfort- I can't ride for extended periods without developing knee pain and numbbuttitis- how would you rate the comfort level for long, touring type rides? Are there any issues that would prevent you from using it for day to day commuting (mechanical or comfort)? What made you choose the Tiger over other models? It seems well regarded in terms of performance, versatility, and reliability- are you happy overall, or does it feel like in trying to make it versatile they came up short across the spectrum? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
