No, I forgot where it was! I don't have my GPS on the new bike yet, as it uses the Euro hella style accessory plug.

Still getting the feel for 2wheels, so taking it slow on the trails right now.

Is that the Powerlet style of plug?



OGTC had a variety of the plugs on the wall leading to the back, near the cash.

I did! Bought a stand in the US for $60. Worked great.

Congratulations! More than once I've admired that bike at OGTC.

Curious - why did you go for the Tiger over the F800? I rode the F800 for two days in Vegas this spring and enjoyed it immensely. I've never ridden a Tiger to compare, but the engine sounds sweet!

If I am honest, my goal was a beemer of some sort. Triumph was not on my radar at all. I knew I did not want someone else's issues, and my buddy at Affordable Beemer Services was advising me. I went with the tiger because it felt better and all the reviews that matched my skills and abilities yelled Tiger.

A bit chilly today but our heated jacket liners and gloves made it quite pleasant. Had a great breakfast in Winchester, then toodled around the boring back roads Southwest of Ottawa. Sure can't hold a candle to the roads in Lanark or the Kingston area.

Any of you guys running/used to run, the Caribou Pelican side panniers? I am trying to decide what to get and I have read most of the reviews, but just curious what you all think of Pelican cases as panniers. While top loading is nice, I am not sure it is $600 more nice, as that is generally how much more the Jesse, HT, Touratech etc panniers cost.

Thanks!
