V-Strom or Tiger

The only other bike that I am considering at present is the Triumph Tiger. Any opinions, experiences with them would be appreciated.

V - Tiger

My son had the Tiger I have the Vee. IMO the Vee is a much better bike except if you're short. His Tiger seat was adjustable and could go lower. He won't ride my Vee because it's too tall were the Tiger was a good fit for him.

Having ridden both and considering the cost of admission, I prefer the V.

Looked at a Tiger when I moved from my Sprint ST... rode it...nice bike, much higher price, ..and most importantly where I live....one and only one dealer east of Quebec. From personal experience..getting parts for a Triumph in the hinterland....good luck and bring a bucket for the $$ !
The Strom's much lower price let me put some add ons and still have $ left vs the Tiger.
Different takes on the same theme !

Just that is reason enough. :-)
