Since the bike was originally desiganted the Tiger Cub, I suspect these might be Cubbies..

Right. We need a completely un-gay name like: "Girlie." No wait ...

My vote is that the 800XC is the "Dirty Tiger."

Pretty much spot on. For some stupid reason I think the Brits might've made a better machine than the germans.

Well, that's it, I guess, finally some confirmation.

That article was a little useless since the author admits he's not much of an offroad rider, so hopefully another review will get posted somewhere written by someone who has more off-pavement experience.

Not wholey true as the F650 is a detuned F800 lump, whereas the T8 & T8XC are the same.
