Really? And which couple of folks out of this motley crew do you suggest are knowledgeable and have class?

I might be interested in such a class.

He must have thought he was typing on another forum. There is no way he got that impression from anyone that he met around here.

Uhoh! Took the Tiger in to have some accessories installed and Cybervlad, my cruiser rising coworker was supposed to pick me up in his truck. He overslept. So Wayne gave me the demo Tiger Explorer 1200 for the day. I broke my own rule! Never ride a bike you aren't willing or able to buy!!!! Almost got a ticket on Highland Colony Parkway!

So how much are you going to lose on the deal trading the Tigger in on the big Tiger?

Not gonna do it! I'm not gonna do it.... Still waiting to get the 800 out of break-in range. I'm sure it has enough HP for me, once I can use it...
