... well, sort of.
I keep thinking about Tiger 1050's. Can't get them out of my head.
I don't need one. The V is excellent for what I do. Plenty quick... I don't remember the last time I went WOT in first gear. Comfy enough with the front of the seat lifted. Gas mileage is fine. I love the looks. It is outfitted as I like. I love riding it, but I still think about Tigers. Actually I think about Tigers, Multistradas, KTM 990SMT's... and so on, but Tigers primarily.
Please. Someone who has driven one... put me out of my misery. Tell me how truly awful they are! Tell me the suspension sucks. Tell me the sweet sweet tripple is nothing but annoying. Talk to me about how the extra power is nothing but a waste as the V is far more hooligan. Talk to me about the expense of ownership, frequent valve adjustments, and shoddy dealer network. For the love of Budda, someone decry these incredibly beautiful machines!
Seriously. If anyone would like to talk about their experiences on one, I'm all ears (and silly grin).
