Never refer to a bad motorcycle gearbox as being agricultural/tractor like. Modern tractors have seriously sophisticated gearboxes. Far, far superior to ANY motorcycle.

Tiger Vs. BMW

I have been on a bike for over 65 years. I enjoyed the Tiger 800 for 74,000 miles so much that I ordered a
second one. Put on 48,000 miles on that one until the dealership lost the franchise. To the point: I
bought a R1200 Gs Rallye. I think it is one of the best bikes I ever owned.

Mmmmm. I don't know what to tell you. Bikes are very personal and none of them are perfect. It is your ride, you decide, be at one with the bike then the magic happens. I started riding in 67 and I've loved every minute of it. I've ridden Honda's, Suzuki Yamaha, Triumph's, I now have a 05 1200GS it's not perfect but darn close. Try out a 1200GS you can always switch back!!!

Thanks for the feedback. It’s definitel different to what I’m use to and will take some practice and seat time to get comfortable with. But personally, I don’t think I’ve ever seen another bike that illicits such an emotional reaction. I’m committed to experiencing and getting to know my 1200gs rallye.
