I emailed them about 4 months ago about handguards. He said that he needed some detailed pics. I sent about 15 with a tape measure showing everything. He never would reply back. If their customer service is that bad, then I'll spend my money somewhere else. In case you can't tell, I'm pissed. I sent about 10 replies & never one response. I can only assume the oval part interferes with the tank shrouds on full turn.

I do too!!! Too bad it's just an optical illusion since the fire hydrants in vail are 3ft above the ground so they can access them in the winter

I still want their handguards, but I don't want to buy something & just have to send it back. It is strange that I could not find a phone # to call them & say WTF?

Be safe!
I've got a white non-xc in north county near Pendleton, bought it in April. I saw a guy on a venom yellow with factory luggage a couple weeks ago, but haven't seen him since.

I've had my Tiger Road version for 3 weeks and about 1,000 miles. So far I have added:

XC handguards
XC high fender (vanity!)
Heated grips
My gps mount and heated gear pigtail
Arrow
An old RKA tankbag I had on my GS
Touratech Zega Pro panniers and tail box
Mastad screen

Here are just a few photos of the Touratech. I wrestled with their purchase for several reasons. First is the cost. I could have bought a nice dirt bike for the price of these things! They also sit a bit high and wide compared to the Jesse bags I have had in the past. I don't really like adding the weight and bulk. One reason I sold my GS was to get away from that. On the other hand, I do like the looks of the bags and I know I will appreciate the capacity. I will likely do most of my riding with either the tailbox only or the panniers only.

Definitely wider than the bars and a bit wider than the Jesse bags.

So, is it necessary that it sticks out that far? It looks like you can ride a small bike through the gap between exhaust and rack ...

Anyone notice this article from June? BMW is spazing out about the success of the Tiger.
