Like your thinking but as risk of disappointing - the Tiger is not built in UK !

That depends when the Tiger was built. I believe Gen 1 & 2 were made at Hinckley, but admittedly with components from overseas. Full assembly/production only moved to Thailand relatively recently for Gen 3

As Will said. Mine was definitely built at Hinckley nearly 6 years ago. So was my Sprint ST

Very nice.

I had a sunset red Sprint ST.  Dead sexy and the best sounding motorcycle I've ever owned.
Silly Harley rider......Don't you know that Tigers eat hogs?

Mine sounded good when I put these on it as well

Awsome cans. I bet that they sounded great. And very pretty too. Rivals the MV Agusta pipes.
