This would be a much more suitable bike to bring if you ever make it back up to VanIsle again...

A friend of mine got to ride it a couple of weeks ago and said it was AWESOME.



Ahhhh, the painful separation between want and need…..

I sat on a Tiger 800 with the tall seat at the long beach show and I actually fit! and im 6'9"! I can't wait to see how I fit on the Tiger 800XC as thats the one I am really interested in for my offroad trips.

Some days I pack the camera knowing I may not even pull it out.
I had to go visit a friend in hospital Sunday and seized the opportunity to jump on for a ride.

I'm not sure if it's a universal coincidence that the designated MC parking is right outside the ER

It's been kind of hectic busy here and any rides I've been able to sneak in have been short.
Always worthwhile, but short.
AND COLD.
This day was perfect.
Perfect weather, Perfect time in to the city.
And perfect that my friend who was terrified she wouldn't wake up from surgery was upright and smiling.
yay morphine!
And this picture symbolizes all of that for me.
And it was the only one I took that day….

I've been visiting my mother in hospital, here in Christchurch NZ, and, , your observation is spookily accurate. Right across from the entrance...
And thanks again, TDP, for your pics and commentary - they are great stuff.

Peach, your last pic of the GG Bridge reminded me of 9-11 Twin Towers with the jet plane (down in the LH corner of pic ) headed towards the towers of the bridge. Awsome and then some. "Lest we forget" rj

KLR.. logic...???

Tiger 800 a bitchin bike....... About.. $11456.81
Klr ...................................About..... $5000.00

Less cost = less time @ work = more time to ride.

Just one point of view.....

As always... a joy to read!.. THANKS!
