Tony, trying to sell your Tiger on a Tiger forum isn't the right move. Most of us who visit this forum already own a used Tiger. There might be a small number of people on this forum who might want to get a newer model or have lower mileage than their current Tiger but it's a very limited number of prospects here.
I suggest trying in the spring and use different venues. Good luck with the sale.

I agree that timing might be an issue, but suspect many potential buyers (Tiger and otherwise) will look at model-specific forums as one of the key channels for sourcing the bike they want. I know I have on more than one occasion, and my biking mates think/do similarly.

I'd agree with that, but forums are more regular stalwarts & people with troublesome bikes. Maybe favourite to try some of the FB Tiger pages for a wider audience of owners & potential owners. If I was looking for a bike I would be looking there for general info' & sales if I was after s/h. Dealers offer £1,500 less than they can sell for, to cover warranty, overheads + £1k profit margin.

Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

Cheers for all the thoughts.

I'll keep it over the winter, put it back to standard and sell through the "normal" channels.

That sounds like a good plan. I didn't mean to imply that you shouldn't list on the forum, you never know, you need only one serious buyer and that person might be looking in multiple places.
To all who live in the norther hemisphere, have a great winter, :190: the ones in the southern hemisphere enjoy the rides. :300:

Sounds like a plan ,the bad news it will be a year older , the good news is that after 3 years the worst of depreciation is past and itís really down to condition & mileage , personally I would buy older if very clean than something that is younger but scruffy. Any way plenty of time to polish up for the new year.
