I drove both before buying a few months ago. I chose the 800GS. The Tiger is FUN. I could get into serious trouble on the road with it. Smooth, quick tranny, loved the engine. I think it would be a great road touring bike. I liked how I could change the seat height on my owe, with the stock seat. But it was the first year of the Tiger. I don't buy first year models. I also didn't like the looks of the bottom linkage on the Tiger; too exposed. For what I wanted the bike for I felt the 800GS was a better fit for me. Your mileage may very though.
