    New to me 2012 Tiger 800xc

    Needed something a little bit faster. Love this bike. Bought from neighbor with almost 22k miles. $6000. Anyone have a tiger? Tips?

    Nice motorcycle. I have no real model specific advice just go over all of the standard maintenance things and check it out closely. Then ride!

    Sharp bike. How is the power delivery?

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.

    those bikes have always fascinated me. I can tel you up front being a yakimaniac to get yourself a shop manual and learn how to work on that thing yourself. Not much support for euro or British bikes around here! I dont think youll have much trouble with it, but be prepared to turn wrenches and source parts.

    Yeah, Kennewick is the closest. And expensive per hour.

    Coming from the TW200 as my first bike I feel like I am on a rocket ship. My problem is going to be keeping my speed down so I don't get tickets. I feel like I have instant power delivery at any speed, gear or, or RPM. I was making to big of commutes on the TW200 so this really is safer on the faster uphill roads. TW200 is still way better for farm and hunting though.
