Made the move - Tiger to Dakar
After a few miles on the Tiger, it was easy to quickly appreciate it's smoothness and power. Great bike overall, but I never really felt like I belonged on it - it's hard to describe, but something was just not right and it was there EVERY time I rode.
Then I sat on a Dakar that was for sale - fully kitted '06. It is not as smooth really, and down on the Tigers power, BUT, I felt right at home on it. It is a whisker tall, but the lower seat option with the storage bin will solve that right away.
I am really excited - Monday - delivery day - won't come soon enough!
Chance favors the prepared mind.
All cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing. EH
