Interesting choice of bikes there!

I'd figure the Tiger has more "play" in it then the ER6n, I'd probably just
use the Tiger. Is there anything better on the ER6n then on the tiger?

Suspension isn't.. brakes aren't it either.. torque is probably similar,
the ER probably vibrates more, has less power. Weight is about the same
too, right?

Looks can't be it either.

No particular direction, just heading right.
First bike after too many years without.

Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

The Tiger is my "ride mostly, tour mostly, commute mostly" bike. I got the ER to just have a different bike, different style. A smaller fun bike. Probably 80% of my commuting is on the Tiger versus the occassional run on the ER6. In cooler weather the Tiger and my ST1100 get ridden due to their wind protection. It's just fun to have a naked small bike. If I could have only one bike yeah, it'd be the Tiger. But given that I can afford to ahve three bikes, it's fun to have them. Odds are, however, that Spring 2013 I will sell the ST1100 and just have the Tiger and ER6 in the stable.

The extras finally turned up. I feel better now that the crash bars, sump bash plate and the handguards are on there. The heated grips will come in handy and the beak is just because it looks cool.

The new toy shortly after I purchased it in September...



I rode it up to the Oquirrh Overlook at the top of the Oquirrh Mountains between the Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys.

That's the Bingham Canyon Mine owned and operated by Rio Tinto / Kennecott - still in operation after 105+ years, with the latest projections putting the mine life out for at least another 20 years.

Nah, it's a low-rider version for the boy racers - smaller diameter wheels with ultra-low profile rubber...
