Now I just need a better seat. Is there a dedicated seat thread for the Tiger 800? Corbin says they have one "coming soon."
I've found the basic shield to be tolerable, but it could be better. I still need ear plugs, and get some buffeting. Since we are about the same height, I'll ask you, how much difference did you notice between the two screens? I agree the OEM options look best, but if the touring shield wont make much difference, I'll be looking for a less attractive more protective option...
As for the seat, I bought the OEM low gel with the bike and am quite pleased with the comfort it provides. I've not taken any seriously long trips yet, but my daily commute is 1 hour each way, with no discomfort what so ever!
