Here sooner than I'd planned!
« on: May 30, 2018, 14:22:00 »
Hello all - Well, today I picked up my Tiger 1050SE (2010), having owned the Wee for barely 6months!

A chap I work with is moving to a KTM superduke, and offered me the 1050 at a price I really couldn't say 'no' to, so here I am... Traitor!

I did love the Wee, and will certainly miss it... but falling in love quite quickly with the Tiger! :)

Enjoy it. That triple engine is a beauty. Just leave your licence in the waste-paper basket.  :auto-dirtbike:

The bloke who sold me his tiger is moving to a super duke gt, and having test ridden a few others (including the ktm adventure s), was absolutely blown away by the gt.

Another friend has the standard super duke, again, loves it.

So only two views, but both are smitten with the ktms.

Heh, and yes, that tripple is amazing. Masses of grunt, and just pulls in any gear... better pay attention to that Speedo...
