And thanks for the add. This is my first street bike. At age 56 and a beat up frame I had to give up the desert and dual sports. So I sold the 2007 KTM 525 and found this Tiger with 3700 miles on it. Nice guy and I paid him full price as it looked like it came out of a time machine. I was not sure how much I would enjoy full time street riding, but now I am hooked. I commute daily on it into LA and I really love going to and coming from work each day.....not so much the work thing but that is life. That's the story and think I made the right choice on a first street bike. The riding position is very familiar and I love the power as well as the front brake, pretty awesome.
