Wink A Disturbance in the Force

Well, I guess I've put it off long enough. I now have a replacement for Tigger II, (RIP). Tigger III, or "Shadow Tigger" has arrived! We will post some pics soon, but be advised she has a little more kick than Tigger II did!

Well Ernie, we just picked her up this afternoon, bit maybe a quick peek is in order. "Shadow Tigger" or "Shadow" for short is a 2012 Tiger Explorer with most of the options I would have ordered already installed and a measly 10 K miles on her.

More to come after we get a chance to put some miles on!

Congrats John. Are we going to see Shadow at CCR since it is such a short ride to get there for you?

Re: A Disturbance in the Force

Very nice John! Maybe a nice ride around the Steens would be in order. Pauline and I are heading over there the weekend before CCR and staying in the French Glen Hotel. Would love to see the Shadow in action!

Way cool, John!! I'm thinking she might show up in Salem. You had better get some tie downs cause she'll be pullin for AK before long. Congrats on a sweet ride.
