An International garage

The Tiger now has an Italian friend. 2016 with less than 5k miles. Still smells new.
I have the luggage handles, driving light fused harnesses and a Givi topcase rack on order.

Nice! Congrats on the new Stelvio and love that metallic matt red.
Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

Congrats!  I've not yet had an opportunity to see one of those in the wild.

Thank you! I think I saw one in the wild once up North near Susanville. The only other ones I've seen were at the dealer.

Just put new tires on it, as it was still sitting on it's original tires and they were showing signs of aging.

I find myself looking for excuses to fire it up 😊.

The Tiger now has an Italian friend. 2016 with less than 5k miles. Still smells new.
I have the luggage handles, driving light fused harnesses and a Givi topcase rack on order.

Riding on the back is a wonderful thing too! Perfect 2-up bike, probably the best ride for us. You made a good decision!  :inlove: :inlove: :-*
