If you're referring to me Tom; my relationship with the Fatboy has lasted longer than many marriages and yes we still like each other. :005:

I have to say, the original  Carbed Tiger ( Steamer to us on TigerTriple) was a beautiful beast of a bike. Twin headlights and the twin exhausts. Loved the look. Not Truly Off road capable like an xc, but in the 15 years I had it, the one common problem area was the Carbs. Even swapping from the Original Mikunis to the later Keihins made no difference to the problems with running. I know this was not a problem to everyone, but my riding is very sporadic, and if left for more than a week, it would be a nightmare to get it to run on all 3 cylinders.
FI  was the only reason i got rid of the bike.
I put a new Battery in the xc last weekend, as the old one was 6 years old and failing, and even though the bike has sat for 6 weeks, it fired up to an even tick over .... Luxury .....
