I did consider it. The BMW seemed to get a bit of a nod over the Triumph for offroad. Better clearance (though not by much) and the weight is carried a little lower IIRC. Don't remember all of the reasons. They were all minor but enough for me. I would have been happy to take a Tiger though. Definitely more sporty.
