Is anyone using side cases on their Tiger that can hold a full face helmet (size small Arai RX-Q). I've been using my GIVI V35 on the last 3 bikes I've owned which holds my helmet which I utilize nearly everyday. Just wondering if I'd be without that luxury on the Tiger. Don't think I'd want to us the V35 on the tiger if I had another option. Thanks

I'm planning on buying these cases directly from the maker. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...661079&page=10
The top case is 175 US Dollars and a top rack for it is 97 US Dollars.

Thanks but I am more interested in side case options rather than top case.

I just picked up my Tiger today. It came with the following upgrades:

Touratech Tank bag
Zega Pro topcase (25L)
handguards
engine guards
arrow exhaust
heated grips
center stand
ABS

It was slightly used with around 3,600 miles on it. I paid $9,500, which I consider a steal with over $2,500 in accessories / upgrades made to it.

Some pics:

That my friend is a very good deal and a well-turned Tiger. Just the way I'd have it.

That is a smoking deal. You will probably want to replace the wind screen at some point.

Is there a general consensus of what windscreens are better? I've come in and out of this thread as it's progressed but it's nearly impossible to find any real information in here anymore, lol.

That is exactly what I am looking for in a Tiger. I hope to find a similar deal late next year. Congratulations to you.

No one windshield is perfect for all riders, unfortunately. You might read the thread link that was posted and see if your dimensions fit any of the other riders', and see what they like.

I find the short cal sci to be pretty damn good for me, but I want a little more rake. Trying to figure out how to accomplish that.

Yep, it's not the most attractive offering, but nothing is when it comes down to it.

I'm 6'1" with 32" inseam. The inseam coupled with overall height is what really matters IMHO. There could be 5 riders with different inseams at 6'1" sitting higher or lower on the seat.

The OEM pannier (left side) will hold a full face helmet. Not recommended for off-road use though. Mounts are weak, one biff and you'll bust them.
