    Thanks!
    How is the 500 on the highway? I assume it's working pretty hard at 70 mph, is the engine smooth or is it getting buzzy?
    The Tiger will seem luxurious! Just make sure to demo it. That's a nice feature when shopping Triumph vs most Japanese brands.

    The 500's not too bad on the motorway, is a little buzzy, engine's comfortable at 70, starts working once you start pushing past 70 though.
    I have a trip to Vegas to test ride a 900 GT Pro at the start of March along with hiring the Tiger 800 for 5 days. wasnt likley to get a test ride in Minnesota until some time in May :)

    Excellent. Enjoy the trip and good luck. Post your thoughts on the 900, I'd be interested.

    Yes, enjoy the trip and please post your impressions, @Geoff70! I'd also like to hear your impressions (and perhaps "stories"?!) of Vegas. I love Vegas. My husband and I ride up there regularly. Sadly, the Las Vegas Bike Fest rally seems defunct after closing down during Covid.
