I love the engineering of my 2019 Tiger. Possibly the best engineered bike I have owned. Certainly better than the Ducati Monster I once had, which literally dropped bits onto the road as you drove along. The Tiger drives perfectly. I recently came back from a tour of northern France where I could not imagine a better bike. Even running out of fuel in the middle on nowhere was a pleasure!
But sometimes I feel the full frontal lets the bike down. Some of you may agree, and I am sure that many of you disagree. But I would like to look at a few ideas for sharpening up the bike. Just a little. So less people ask 'what it's like to have lots of low speed torque?', and more people suggest locking up their daughters...
So for instance, I've removing the large handle bar protectors, and the strange and useless clear wind deflectors, and added subtle eyebrows:
Am I inciting insurrection, or moving towards perfection?
