Well guys, I traded my Tiger for a 2005 Rocket. I was going to wait for another year and find a used one, but couldn't help myself! I will certainly miss slinging the Tigger through a turn at 90 mph, but I love that Rocket.

The power is incredible. I smoked my buddies modified v-rod without even trying too hard. Have to be a little more careful cornering though. Turned in a side road the other day and put my peg down so hard that I hurt my foot! [Kinda miss all that tiger ground clearance.]
The comfort is good so far, been on one 200 mile trip and it felt great.
I'll try to post a pic soon.

Did the dealer do you right? Have you seen how much they've asked for your old Tiger?

I can see why you'd do it. If the Thruxton had a tad more balls, I'd consider doing the same.
