Thanks for the welcome.

In answer to some of the questions:

The tyres are 11years old and as part of the deal with the bike shop they are being swapped for some fresh Pilot Road 4's. (had them on a Busa and loved them).

The chain & sprockets are on their last legs and will be swapped for a new set in the not too distant future.

The bike has 60k km's (about 40k miles) on it and has been rebuilt at some point as it was a CAT C write off in 2016. Not really bothered about this as it's done 20k miles since the write off and it runs and rides perfectly.

It started life as an  ABS model but the ABS has been stripped off it, most like when the front end was replaced.

It's a reasonablly tidy example and will be put ti use as a commuter and for some touring (planned trip to Scotland later in the year). Already purchased some Ventura luggage and a Quadlock.

Will then do some fettling over the winter.

Nice looking Tiger! Is that a very low mile one? Reason I ask is the tires look like the original Michelin Pilot Road's and original chain ( blue Master link). There is a four digit code on each tire that give the production date.  For example,  2409 is the 24th. week of 2009. If those are the original 14 year old tires, would be wise to swap those out. I have the Road 6 versions on my 08 Tiger and they are a big improvement over the original (1's).

Wow.  One for every occasion.  :001:

I'd love to hear your feedback on the Can Am.  Better half and I have talked about one for her. Just not serious enough for a test ride yet.  :031:
