Ok. I just went and test drove the Tiger 1050 ABS. It was very smooth, great breaking , and power. After 10minutes on it...my hands hurt and i felt like i was leaning forward. This is supposed to be a neutral position bike. Any body have experience with these? Is it something you get used to or will it never be the same as a cruiser. People say they can ride for hours and hours on the tiger...but I am not sure how they do it. Also, was looking at the Honda st but i hear they are hot and in Texas ..that won't be good. On the way out of the dealer..i looked at a Thunderbird Storm...seems nice. The triple cylinder is supposed to be awesome. One more thing, the clutch lever on the Tiger is like 5 times a stiff as my VN750...my hand was fatigued after a few blocks...is there a way of fixing that? Thats ridiculous that a modern bike has a stiff clutch like this oem.
