2016 Triumph Tiger 800 XCA
Picked up a 2016 Tiger 800XCA a couple days ago. Traded in the old, faithful, DR. Haven't had a chance to ride a lot, due to rain and storms, but did get a break this afternoon, and took the little lady on a short, 2-up ride.

Seriously, they should've named this thing the "Honey Badger". Third gear or sixth, Tiger don't give a :shit:. Tiger just says, "Roll on that throttle!" ...1-up, 2-up, Tiger don't care. ;-p

I'm probably just finding out about "smooth" (coming from the thumper) but so far, I'm really impressed! My biggest fear at this point, is that I'm going to want to ride so much, I'll bust the budget buying things like tires, chains, and sprockets!

Glad you are liking your Tiger. The triples are great engines and the Tigers ride well. Enjoy! TUP
