You might have the possibility to add a bike to your stable in a year or so...your current ride being a late model Sprint.

Let's also say you want it to be fun, long distance capable, and somewhat offroad capable, too. Bikes that have crossed your mind include (but are not limited to) KTM Adventure or Supermoto, Buell Ulysses, and the 07 Tiger. Part of your criteria is adding variety to your riding experience.

The real question here: As far as the Tiger's concerned, would you think it would be too much like the Sprint for it to add variety?

Discuss. (let me clarify, off-road, in this thread, means forest service roads, not single tracks.)

Oh, and please do not bring up anything that is built by Suzuki.

Wildcard, I don't think so. Everything I listed is a liter bike, and carries a little bit of wind protection for touring. I still want the performance on the road, not just a dirt bike. (fwiw the Scrambler IS dead sexy)

I don't mind the Bandit talk. I just know the V-S****m (I don't even want to write it) is right out.

The KTM Adventure and the Supermoto both have merit...as does the Buell.

I really do wonder though if the Tiger would be too similar to the Sprint.

Jeez, SaddleTramp, you actually wrote it in here. Man, I didn't want to see anything about that bike. Have you ridden one? It's like having an out-of-balance lawn mower under you. Next time you come up with a thread I'll start posting about my fromunda cheese or something, just to get you back.


I'm gonna go hurl now...thanks.
