Slightly of your original topic but I'm also excited. The new Speed Twin will be a little to quick for me however I have seen one in Thailand and it is a beautiful bike. For me it's going to be a 2018 Tiger. I can only have 2 bikes so I think this will be the perfect compliment for my BB. I'm ready to buy but just can't decide between the XRT and the XCA.
Living in Rural Thailand there are a ton of field tracks and wooded areas to explore but nothing to demanding so the XRT would cope. However I'm trying to understand just how much if a compromise I will be making on the road handling if I went for the XCA. I'm not a fast rider so Im leaning towards the XCA as I think the compromise on road handling is smaller than the off road compromise if the XRT. Thoughts and advice welcome.
Just realized I may have high jacked the original thread. Apologies. Back to the heading. Can you tell, I'm Excited!! Jesus, do I have the bike bug!!
