hello
« on: October 21, 2018, 08:23:44 AM »
hello :001:, Ive just joined, Ive had a BMW R1150gs for the last 8 years, but Im looking for something a bit lighter, more modern and easier to live with, and I reckon a Tiger XCA will fit the bill !  The main concern I have is whether I will find it a bit buzzy, after years riding my tractor?  I guess a test ride will answer that! :018:

Hi mikehave, welcome aboard  :400: I previously owned a`Break My Wallet ,  2013,
    1200 RT at one  time, but got rid of it, as starting to find the weight to much, plus high servicing / parts
    cost.     Take a `Tiger', out for a `long test ride',  ( and take your wallet )  !!   :031:

yep, Im a bit disillusioned with BMW having been a quoted ludicrous sum for an MOT for my R1150gs, if I were a cynic I might think it was a ploy to sell me a new R1200gs !
(ironically, I was considering it).
We are going to the NEC bike show in November to check out bikes, shame that I belive Triumph arent attending the show  :003:
