I don't see what's so great about it. What was improved?

Well, you don't have to hunt through all the other crap to find Tiger stuff.

All the Tiger stuff here is still a mess.


If I want Tiger info I just go to Tiger800 or TriumphRat.net. They even categorize it into different sections like "General maintenance", "Suspension", Brakes and Tires", "Electrical" etc. It's really handy.

Now I have to jump around a lot more to read about the new Hondas and Guzzis.

I have interests other than Triumph. I'm not a Triumph lifer. My '13 XC is burning a quart of oil every 1,000 miles. My next bike might not be a Triumph.

I like the new arrangement. Yes you have to look in different sections for info about Honda CBX500s that people think are ADV bikes or whether a Ducati Scrambler really is an ADV bike but you have to look in diffent sections for local info or info about gear or ride reports or pictures so what is new.
At least this way if I search this section for "suspension" I will only get threads about Tiger suspension (I hope )

Some forms of respect can't even be earned. It must be awaited.

Remember the famous reply? "What difference would it make?"
It is about time.
