Triumph are one of those bike that you either understand, or don't.
Kinda like a PT Cruiser - love or hate em. Not much middle ground when
it comes to Triumphs for some reason. I've even considered a Triumph
America - just because it's "different".

The choice is easy - buy the Tiger, then you and your spouse can both
ride (that's what I'm doing anyway). Karin wants the Kawasaki Drifter -
a very pretty bike. Kawasaki's site is totally unviewable without
flash, but here's a ride review for the 800cc:
and the 1500
Both bike have changed slightly for 2001 and 2002 - most notable the
dumping of that awfull two-up seat on the 800 for a nice cushy solo.
