    I loved my recent test ride :twisted: sweet torquey motor :grin:

  2. I still want that bike so bad.

    The only Sports Tourer with enough legroom for me to not have my legs folded like a yogi.
  3. At 6'5" I know that feeling...
    'Tiger made my Aprilia Caponord feel cramped too..
  4. Off-topic, how's Mackay recovering from the floods?

    I was up there for 10 months about two years ago, working on the Hay Point coal terminal expansion (Phases 1 & 2). Wasn't a motorcyclist then, though.

    Was a whisker disappointed at the lack of twisty roads (Mt. Ossa Rd was okayish in the Toyota MR2... Eungella National Park too!), having grown up in NSW's hilly playground. :)

    Back on topic... I'm 6'4 myself. :)

    When the Tiger1050 first came out I dropped into a bike shop to have a look, and an average-height sales rep came over while I was ogling the bike.
    "It's a great bike", he said. "I've been riding it to and from work the last week. It's a bit tall for me, though."
