I drool at Tigers every time I go into the dealer. I think the Tiger is Triumphs best all round bike and that may be a bit blasphemous on this part of the forum.

I want the new Tiger SE.

Congrats on your bike, I believe you will love it.

I found the Tiger to have a bit too much 'top heavy' feel for me, felt very strange after getting off the Sprint. But, I reckon like everything else you get used to it.

I had the same experience when I test rode a demo Tiger back in 07. It felt very tall. I'm 5'11' with 32" inseam, and I was on my tippy toes. Plus it had a funky throttle response. Very jerky in low speeds.

Maybe the newer Tigers have changed. Or maybe the Tiger I was on wasn't set up properly. Or maybe it's an acquired taste. Or maybe I'm full of soup.
