Hi all, sometimes you really want something, only to be given it to find out it isn't really what your after (what a waffly start)

I have a great looking Steamer called Toni (The best looking Tigers imho), she is loverly but doesn't take me where I want/ need to go (probably in a large part down to my skills) but I'm looking for something no bigger/ heavier than a Dommie, preferably something more like a DRZ 400 or the like.

I need it to have decent road manners as will be my only bike and have a 30 mile commute so need to get upto and stick at 70 (not fussed at faster as life on a budget is often a compromise)

Toni is great on M's A's and bigger B's but in my limited spare time I hunt out little B's and U's (less cars and more grass = bigger smiles for me)

Toni is a VGC 93 plate with 39k miles, with lots of service history, heated grips, givi wingrack plate (no box) loads of life left in the tyre dept, MoT 30/4/12, tax etc. new rear disk and rebuilt shock. This bike goes just like it should (and very well at that) I doubt you will be dissappointed and is a great example of a Tiger (I get more looks on this than I ever did on my @)

PM me for more info or pictures or to come and see her, let me know what you have.

Thanks Mervinh, looks good but my budget is all tied up with Toni I'm afaid, I had hoped to go for 2 bikes again, but life looks to be throwing a curveball (a good one but still a wallet squeezer)
You still up for the Air Ambulance rideout? I need to get my cheeks in gear and book my place.

Give me a nod if you can make it, we can meet up on the sea front and have a yak.
Hi all, thanks for looking but looks like Toni will be turned into/ swapped into a CCM!
