Hi Gang

After searching for a cheap commuter bike for a few days, I've gone and bought myself a lovely looking low mileage Tiger T709 with an 855cc lump.

I test rode a BMW F650GS on Saturday but wasn't really tickled too much by it. Tried to find a good V-Strom 650 but none of the sellers who had advertised their bikes would respond so I popped out after work tonight and shook hands on a yellow Tiger.

I'll be spending loads of time on here reading posts and trying to figure out which parts are interchangeable with the 955i model. The last service was done in 2013 and 2000km ago so first thing is to make a little service (air, oil, plugs) and to replace the split rubber on the gear shifter.

Looking forward to having a blast at the weekend too, curious to find out what the performance is like.

Got the bike registered to me this morning and am off to pick it up now. I'll be sure to post a few photos at the weekend.

Cheers
