Hi there
« on: September 02, 2019, 02:47:47 PM »
Hi All,

Just a quick note to say 'Hi'...  Currently riding a Kawasaki Z900rs, but awaiting a delivery date for my new 800 XRT.  :001:

The Kawasaki is a great little beast, but my hips just don't like it and I'm fed up with being in pain the day after a long ride...  So started looking for something a little more comfy!

Good choice!

I chose a Tiger partly because of a hip problem - no problems  :002:

You're all making me feel old for having an XRT. I'm only 48.   :017:

Welcome!

Funnily enough I test rode the Z900rs twice last year before finally coming down on the side of the Tiger.
I love the Kawasaki's looks but rider comfort was definitely better (for me) on the Tiger.
Admittedly, I was also kinda lured in by all the bells and whistles on the Tiger too!  :034:
