I feel like the brakes are somewhat falling short. But then again, I still have to give it a thorough checkup, so it's possible something else is up.

I only ask because they already have braided hoses so will not gain anything.
Oh and it does look nice, can't decide whether to put lashes on mine or not.
Having looked again its an early model so not 100% on the brake lines now.
I\'m immortal..........well so far!!!

Have to check. As I said, maybe I'll start by purging the brake lines. That might help a lot.

Nice bike!

Drooling at the thought of a Zumo 660, but that is a fair chunk of change man!!!  No way the wife will bless that purchase just yet.....maybe a bottle drive.... :wink:

On the plus side, you have a good set of Touratech crash bars on it.  Tigers like to lie down in car parks, or on the drive, or mine even pinned me to the garage wall for half an hour once...  :?

on one of the other bike forums I use, a commuting web site, there is a photo competition for April and the topic is Water, so I was washing the Tiger and took a few piccys.
