Roadie tires

I've been happy with the Michelin PR3's that I've tried, 2 rears. Also Conti Road Attack's have been great, little less mileage than the PR3's. I don't take my Roadie off road now that I have a...

I ended up buying a DR650 this summer. I always knew the non-XC Tiger 800 would be far from ideal off-road, but I find I don't go off-road at all. The DR650 is indeed more capable and fun off-road...

No, it ran fine with the standard map and the LV can with no discernible change in mileage. It's probably running a little lean at lower RPM's but LV says it is fine to run it that way.

That is utterly ridiculous. The Tiger 800 bore/stroke ratio would never allow the revs needed to make that kind of power. The head would never flow enough gases either. Big joke.

Does anybody have the Giant Loop Fandango Tank bag? It looks like it might be a good fit for the Tiger's tank with the sloped design. Worth $160?
