G'Day
Location:  Brisbane, Queensland Australia.
Experience: Been riding now for 53 years. Exclusively, British; BSA Gold Star DBD 34,  twins Norton in my youth. Later years; BMW RT's and then the bandit.

Just bought a used 2017 Tiger Sports with 8215 Km on the clock. Traded a 2010, 1250 Suzuki bandit S with 86K on the clock. other bikes include a 1973 Mii Commando Roadster & 1961 BSA 650 Road Rocket.

I went out to buy a new Suzuki V Strum but decided to take the Tiger for a run to kill time while I waited for an evaluation on my Bandit trade-in. Came back and bought the Tiger without test riding the Suzuki.
Look forward to an informative time on the forum

cheers

george

 :401: George.
Love the story.

I bought my first Tiger in 2008. I'd ridden a couple of 1200 Bandits and went out to buy a brand new GSF1250SAT, being the new Bandit with all the luggage etc. The missus got up the duff and said: "I won't be doing any riding with you, so just buy what you want, so long as it has ABS".

Dodged a bullet there. The 1250 engine is half the engine the 1200 was and only 25% of the 1050.

Enjoy  :152:
