Alright here's a stupid question:
Once, only once have I been able to keep the odometer on the screen. It always wants to jump to some other screen that I don't care about. all I want Is for the odo to remain on the screen every time I start the bike. I got it to stay there once. Then disconnected the battery and I can't get it back. Since I did it once I know its possible.

Yes. I'm thick.

Are you sure they are TKC's? Don't quite look like it to me... dunno what they would be - "something else"? Kenda Big Blocks maybe?

Better be TKC 80's. That's what I told them to order. I'll have to look at the full resolution pix to see if I can see a brand on the tires.

Back looks like a TKC but front doesn't.

It sounds like you probably set the odometer to read "miles until empty" ... There is no ambient temp reading on the 800s.

The ODO shows up when you turn on the bike, then reverts to Trip mile. It does not stay on while riding.

Hopefully I didn't give the impression that the motor was gutless, because it's not. It is "less fast" than my 150HP Duc Multi, but then that's sort of a given. On it's own merits, the lil' Tigger did very well, and for it's intended purpose (and design), it was excellent IMO. After a test ride on a F800GS, I will have a better idea of which way I will go. Given that my intended use is mostly off-road, it's going to be interesting.....

This is a bummer and one of the first things I noticed and, coincidentally, don't like. It'd be nice if we could set this read-out to our own preferences. Maybe a software update could fix it?

Mine doesn't have one. I'll probably wind up doing what I did to my Beemer when I get around to it. It may not be elegant but it sure worked better than any other solution I found:

Well at least I know I'm not that thick. Still, it worked once before. Maybe I was lucky? If true thats pretty goofy..

Does all cartridge forks have two speed damping? I.e. high and low speed compression?

Yep, I'm a lucky guy. I didn't want ABS so finding this bike was an even better stroke of luck for me as I was looking at paying for an option that I didn't want if I had to order one.

I honestly can't remember if the Strom had cartridge forks or not. I've installed Race Tech valves in the last three bikes I've owned. They are worth every penny! Makes me wonder why the OEM's can't make their suspension work as well as the aftermarket can.

Thanks!

Never got a chance to demo a Tiger so this is the first one I've ridden.

When are we going riding?

I was able to 'make' it happen this morning also. I have no idea what combination of buttons did this, a total fluke. My understanding is the ODO only appears at start up, what the fu&$! is up wit dat?

I too find it strange that you can't see the ODO without turning the bike off and then on again.
As for the other figures on the display? FFS it tells you what it's showing you underneath the numbers.
