Funny how it goes. I really like those Tigers.
These Avon's are about the only thing thats never changed on the bike from trip to trip.
Often I just go bush with saddle bags only. Other times nothing for a day ride to some place on mixed road surfaces and sometimes its nearly all blacktop and to a time frame hence that aux tank.
I like that no matter what the conditions of a road I have a high chance of negotiating them. Sand track out to a beach or a shale road up to a lookout or crossing snow covered roads. It all works.
The reversed principl is simple. The grip for drive ( normaly fitted rear) is now used up front to give stability in turns and braking.
