These are all great things to hear - as it just confirms what I’ve been thinking and hoping for.  When I decided to get a second bike, I was torn between a newer sportbike (as the ‘02 is a bit dated) or a motocross bike.  Then when the Tiger was suggested it was the best of both worlds. 

Not to mention the fact that I’m going to have an enormous power increase.  Commuting over the mountains to work should be even better now.

I will definitely post pictures as soon as it gets to my garage.  Thanks again for the warm welcome.

Welcome from Belgium...

I'm jealous. Mountains for commuting. Sh*t, wish I had some...  :152:
You'll love your bike I'm sure!

After 2 1/2 weeks of waiting for delivery, my Desert Edition is finally in the garage.  :082:

 Granted it’s cold and rainy/icy so I can’t ride as much as I want to... but it gives me time to learn all the options.   :084:

(The GSXR is currently getting a new front tire mounted)

haha... thanks.  It's actually a little messy right now, as I usually tidy up and clean on the weekends.  During the week my wife and kids tend to plop things on the work benches and the floor haphazardly.  It's my pride and joy though - my escape from the house of 4 women.  :112:

4 women... That explains a lot.
Also the absence of a nudie calendar in a mancave  :821:  :038:
