I'm not a Tiger owner quite yet but I'm shopping. The plan is to sell my '06 Sprint ST ABS first and then go shopping. Since I'm not "touring" particularly but going on shorter day trips, the Tiger seems to be a little better choice with its more upright seating and I get to continue enjoying the great 1050 motor. At any rate, this is a great forum and I'm getting up-to-speed by reviewing the various posts. Thanks-Ken B.
