The question mark in the photos' URLs is confusing to the forum software.

"I just got the Panniers, want to get them either painted to match the bike or Rhino lined.. Not sure which yet."

Rhino Line them! That way you won't be out on the road somewhere shedding tears for your brand new and scuffed up paint job when you drop it the first time. (I would rather not go in to how I know this!)

Looks great- have fun with it!

Well I finally had the cash in hand to buy a bike. I was already to pick out the Strom to buy when last minute I checked Craigslist for Tigers (I really hadn't considered them thinking they were out of my price range). I found a yellow one '99 with 5500 miles on it in perfect shape and bought it that night. I have no off-pavement riding experience so this is the right size bike to learn on, right? At least I am 6'8" and too much of a wuss to try anything too stupid. Here are some pics of my first trip in the mountains:









My ADV decals came in the mail 5 minutes after I left on this trip too yet. This is a picture thread so I won't clog it up with my questions but if any you are willing to help I have some ?'s here:

Out on the ride, the bike was leaking pannier fluid. Be sure to get that looked at.
