Like Mustang & other experienced tiger riders opined - Its a seriously oversized beast for any really gnarly stuff. But for dirt roads (including Dempster / Dalton & worse) or good 2 track, its quite capable, but be sure YOU'RE up to it - cuz it IS heavy. Also - Tank protection, grippier foot pegs (Mustang?) and a few other accessories would improve its handling... or at least crashability. Most of us love our girlies, but are aware of its limitations. (Of course, I'm really the biggest limitation the bike has) I like my K60 scouts - but for muddy road travel, I still think TKCs are the better tire - But only about half the mileage of K60s. The question is: What are ya really gonna use it for ?? Many folks outfit their bike for a Dakar run - but never even approach riding those kind of conditions. For a capable touring, camping, fishing, adventure moto - the tiger is hard to beat.
