...and so another T12 to Traitors Corner.
« on: November 29, 2020, 19:07:58 »
After 23500miles, almost 6 years it was time to say goodbye to my V-Strom. Many trouble free fond memories of my Strom. I had been looking at a GS and a Tiger in the summer but the deals just were not right. Then, I found a really good deal, too good to turn down. So hello Tiger. Here are some photos on my ride home... and it has a beak.

Congratulations on the Tigger Pony. Looks like we can set up a sub-normal-forum for Tiger owners  :lala:

Enjoy  :thumb:

That'll be in the "moaning old git section" complaining about parts and servicing costs ..  :stirpot:

I'll be happy if I keep this one long enough to need a service...

No, just pondering on the short ownership of my last few bikes. The Guzzi V85tt lasted about 5 months, the Aprilia Caponord before it was just over a year, the Triumph trophy before that was about 5 months and the Varadero before that was about 5 months... There is a pattern forming here.
