I looked at both. I'm 5'10". I was seriously considering the Triumph. Went to the dealer and there were several Tigers in for warranty repair, heard a few phone calls were they were booking in 3 weeks for warranty work. Maybe it was just an unusual week. Went to Suzuki dealer, they only had bikes in for normal scheduled service and were booking in 3-4 days. I looked into a few used Tigers as well with about 40000km, they all had warranty work done. Bought a Strom and now there's a recall.... Oh well... I'm happy with balls of the feet down at a stop light, I wouldn't let that be the deciding factor. Flat footed stops is for cruisers!
