Hey, Tiger! Good to See You Again

Hey, Tiger! Good to See You Again

A Tuesday Night Date with an Old Friend

Last night, being Tuesday and all, I went out for tacos with the fellas. It was the first time that I took the ole Tiger for a ride in a long while.

I’ve spent all of my time on the FZ07 this year. And last year, I was committed to the Bonneville. The poor just Tiger slumbered silently, collecting dust.

When I first swung my leg over the big girl, everything felt HUGE. I couldn’t thoughtlessly maneuver it the way I can the FZ or the Bonnie. Instead I tippy-toed trying to manage its top heavy bulk.

With the no-speed maneuvering around the garage handled, I set off to the taco rendezvous point.

Well, That Escalated Quickly!

Let’s just say, I got there… quickly.

The Tiger is quiet, strong and comfortable. Once moving everything feels so easy. So much so that I wondered why everyone was driving so slowly on the Expressway. It was because I was effortlessly propelled to triple digits without any fuss or noise.

Realizing my error I rolled off the throttle and slowed my pace. Oopsie!

I forgot the reasons why I love this bike since I’ve been dazzled by the noise and tiny fury of the FZ07.

It was good to catch up with my old friend.

    1. I go back and forth on it. I’m not ACTIVELY looking to sell it, but if someone said “Hey, do you still have that Tiger…” I wouldn’t resist letting it go. My attachment to it is sentimental, ya know?

  1. Triple digits? Be careful there gal’ when switching bikes and the sensation (or lack of) of speed.
