When Was The Last Time You Saw a Triumph Tiger 100?

Better yet, when was the last time you read Howl? Or when was the last time you listened to pre-crash Dylan?

Oddly all of which I've been doing lately. My return from Iraq is on the horizon and I know spring will be here soon enough so yet again I've got bikes on the brain; specifically the 2010 Yamaha WR250X. A small cc motard is exactly what I need for the good weather and reintegration therapy. It's an ugly thing that WRX (unlike the Subaru of course) but I can't help but think how great it could be. My mind tells me I'll be riding one this spring that looks like this Achi SV650-based SM.
