Thumb Tyre choice confirmed

The Heidenau are fine as Black Tiger says . 2690 odd miles of Auto route General District plenty of switch backs and Gravel dirt roads and just measured 7.68mm on the rear from 12mm new. Not too bad for a heavy weight Tiger Explorer and carrying loaded luggage for 50% of the mileage.

New to me 06 Tiger

Spent several days making her mine. Cleaned up, touched up, tidied up some wiring, fixed horn, fixed broken L fitting to over flow tank, replaced windsheild screws with stainless, on and on......Oh and took my old Zero Haliburton bag from the attic and made a hat box out of her and added a Wolfman tank bag. I'm very happy with it , rides like a dream.

The TKCs ride great. I have scraped the pegs on them. I am keeping the TKC up front for traction and Mitas or Heidenau on the rear for long wear.

That looks like Erico Motorsports in Denver. I was out there in August and stopped by to look around. I was hoping to compare the Stelvio NTX and the Explorer but all they had was the Explorer.

Yep, Erico. They had a leftover 2012 that they made me a deal on.

This bike is just F.U.N.!!!

Must be nice you southern over 70 degree having sons of guns. I am up here in the great white north. No riding till April. But the riding is pretty awesome for a Tiger. Keep the great pics coming to get me through the winter.
