Gidday from New Zealand
on: 18 October, 2021, 07:51:48 AM
 Hi fellow riders.
I have just bought a 08 Tiger. Owned a T595 10 years ago but had to part with it unfortunately.  Loved that bike.
I also own a 03 Fatboy (tractor) is the term my mates give it haha but the wife loves being on the back and thats all that matters to me  :002:
Back to the Tiger, I like the responsiveness and the sound it gives out,but yeah, too much of a twist on the right and before you know it you're up to the ton.Not a bad problem to have .Nice windy roads where I live and the Tiger eats them .But you all know that.
Thats all for now,Glad I found this group.
Happy riding

This is a the place for you and your bike. Top of each section find the sticky's and save some time and money. You will need it once you see some of the mod's that have been done.

Most common windscreen (short way to go IMO) Lighting, suspension is tad soft and the horn that imitates a goose with a cold.  :125:

Always enjoy trip reports with pictures, I tend to enjoy the country with the bike in the pic and your food haunts with some good eats. Nice way to see the world and not leave your home.
Support the forum.   :031:

lol - TBF, with their clueless OCD 'Great Leader' unable to see outside her virtual goldfish bowl - NZ is perhaps best avoided for a while  :033:

Fair comment YD.
Fortunately I live in deep South so can at least get out and about .
