If I had a 800XC, I'd have to turn in my man card. I don't think I have balls big enough to attempt some of the stuff you guys are riding. I'll take my mountain bike, instead. :lol3

When I first heard about the Tiger, in '08, I was hoping for that, too. A longer-travel Street Triple on XC wheels. Less bulk, overall.

Unfortunately, anything but a Harley in the cruiser circles has a stigma attached to it, regardless of how good it is. It's a shame that most Harley riders, and their passengers, are that ignorant.
