The heated grips came in today. The directions if got for the lights said i had to remove the tank. That sounds hard did you remove your tank?

I've been lurking on here for a long time, finally something I can post. I do have some upcoming trips planned now that I have a bike I can do them on. All these pictures make me hate living in the Houston area, it is such a long ride to anyplace decent (unless someone on here knows otherwise and could enlighten me).

The bike is looking great. Great backdrops...now how about turning off the date/time settings on the camera? Kind of spoils a great pic

Thanks for posting the pictures of the bike/bags from the rear, that looks like a great setup. Wow....That's a very beautiful part of the country you have in your back yard. I'd like to get out there this year, how late into the year can I ride there before the weather turns ugly?

It would be nice if someone from your neck of the woods would organize a Tiger gathering next year...

You can safely ride around Moab into October. Once November rolls around it's a crapshoot. Could be really nice or the snow could be flying. Of course, riding over the Rockies in October can get interesting.

Hmmm...a gathering of the Tigers in Moab. Not a bad idea...

Not much to say so far, it is still in the break in period.

Work sucks.

It is not that bad at all. There are two main bolts near the seat side and just some plastic pieces around the key area. There are also two bolts at the front of the tank from the underside. Take a look you will get it.

Do you have any pics or printed directions for removing the tank?
