Greetings from HS Explorer
on: 10 January, 2021, 09:42:59 AM
Tried to make my username as Hyperspace Explorer (same as my other social media accounts) but too many characters. :008:

Currently at Alhambra, CA, US.

I am eyeing a Tiger 1050 as my first motorcycle. I am well aware thought that the engine displacement is high for a beginning rider.

Tried the G310 R but I had to squeeze the throttle grip all the way in order for it to go revving; did not liked it.

Anyway, am just dropping by here.

Don't be doing that on a Tiger
it is a big bike and fairly top heavy so as a new rider you want to be fairly tall (lowering plates are available) but the motor is sweet with  lots of torque so nice and tractable till you get used to it  :007:

Knowing what I know now about these Tigers, if I were you, I'd wait for trench to get to the states and grab his. (It's listed in the for sale section).   It's mint condition and he's already done all the work to make it perfect. Plus you don't have to worry about his character......there's a few of us on here that will vouch for him.

Good luck with the search.  Be safe

These are great bikes for sure.  Lots of bike for a new rider, but it can be managed if you are tall enough and can control your right wrist.

I went in and looked at Trench's bike, and agree ... it is a beaut and a great value.  Good luck.  You know we'll need to see pictures of whatever you get ...
