    Minnesooota, eh?

    Welcome from a neighbor in NJ. Well, at least in the sense that we're on the same continent.

    You can't go wrong with a Triumph.

    Welcome to the forum, Geoff! I love your phrase "seasonally challenged riding window". I'm a former Minnesotan (now in warm sunny Arizona) so I completely understand what you mean. :eek: Maybe you can get some studded snow tires for that new Tiger 900 to use in the snow. Hang in there! I hope you enjoy the forum. :)

    I love my GT Pro 900 Tiger. I'm in Australia and upgraded from a KTM 790R.

    Interesting. I've been looking at the CB500X to use as a secondary/tertiary bike. Do you feel you've outgrown it?

    BTW - you'll love the Tiger!

    I like the 500,but wanted some of the bells and whistles for the longer trips, cruise control being one of them. I felt the 500 was at its limit on a long trip for comfort.
