Wow, I'm going to have to disagree there... the Tiger is not as hideous as it once was but it's still sort of bug-eyed and awkward looking to me.

"When they throw the 1125 motor in one of these I'll be ready to belly up to the bar."

You sound like the hundreds of others that were going to 'belly up' when Buell got a 'real motor' in their bikes. Since the one 1125 my local dealer got is still sitting there after a few months, it looks like everyone lost the directions to the bar.

I'd buy it as-is right now if I had the bank and the spousal consent.

Spusal consent is not necessary. Just sleep on the couch for a while, but that will blow over. The cash part I can't help you with.

Dunno about that. I'm on the sh*tlist so often, I have fitted sheets for my sofa...

I get myself in hot water now and then also, but one issue that my wife never gives me shyt about is how many bikes are in the garage. That subject is off limits.

I loved the 90's tiger, though the last gen was a design nightmare to me. Looked like the designer spooned a blob of clay on the frame and said Voila! That or sneezed on the bike (the lime green paint scheme added to the sneeze factor). Though upon further reflection I came to the conclusion their intent was to rip off the GS. Unfortuanately if your going to make something as beautifuly ugly as a GS you better have cylinder heads sticking out the sides.

The new Tiger is a step in the right direction but to me looks like a jacked up new FZ1 when rolling towards me on the road.

That's the one I was calling hideous.

Why? we know its going to handle better than most people will use, it will be faster than most (sane and mature) people will go and be about as comfortable as sitting your ass on the short end of a 2x4.

Why don't you go test ride one?

I'm a photographer and i can't stand when the idiots that read the photo sites freak out that one site doesn't do a review of a camera. Either they want to know everything about the camera that going to a store could have told them or they want to be justified in their purchase.
