Update

Anyone have any more current updates on this topic?

I see they are cutting deals on the 2013 800s, but I am still on the fence.

ST/2015 Tiger vs 2013 Tiger/etc etc

Thoughts?

As they say

Step One: Make a pile of things you want to bring, and another pile of the money you plan to bring.

Step Two: Cut the first pile in half, and double the second pile. :rofl

The GS is better balanced in my opinion, but the Tiger motor will more than make up for it.

TN Tiger

There is a beautiful Tigger -2006 FS in TN right now.

Maybe that is the one you were looking at?

It is a great deal, IMHO.

My 73 yo dad has one-he loves it. Him and his wife are only able to ride for 100 miles or so-it is too tight.
