Eurotrash on Monte Cristo

SquidNey and I went for a ride today - turned out to be a 260 mile ride - to help break-in the Tiger. Me on the Triumph, him on his KTM. Eurotrash. We rode East Canyon, Trapper's Loop, Monte Cristo, down into Evanston and then back along the Mirror Lake Highway. We dodged two rather ominous looking thunderstorms.
The Tiger is amazing. It has so much power and torque that I barely came out of 6th gear. Overtaking was a breeze - didn't require anywhere near the setup or planning that it did on the GS. I loved that BMW but all indicators say this Triumph is quite the bike. My grin meets at the back of my head at the moment.
