This one looks pretty much the same, but is actually one of Stretch67's kits - way better, nice and solid. I think he sells them with all the pieces you need to do the conversion.

(excuse the little guy...loves to sit up there and make bike noises...)

That is one kick steamer you got there, eh .....

Were did you procure that cowl / shield piece?

You've got an out headlight. Is that a switch you've wired in or is it blown? I have blown 2 left lights this year.... kinda aggravating. My tech tells me they are not designed to hold up to my offroading.

Has anyone attempted to make their Tiger into more of a dirt/enduro machine.e.g. junked the fairing/screen and fitted a single headlamp, fitted an enduro seat etc

I really like the minimal look and relative lightness of my HP2 but I have a soft spot for Triumphs. I love my Speed Triple 2.


So any minimalist Tigers out there?

That's the way they're supplied. In the UK, at least, we have to install extra relays to make both lights work together.

Another sh*tty day in Colorado with no where to ride and nothing to look at.



Oh yes - there was a Tiger siting



No fun roads to be found anywhere





385 miles and 8 hours of pure boredom





Last one, because I know I wouldn't have your attention much longer



Some video to go with it.

Was that you heading south on 115 out of Colorado Springs on Saturday? I was heading north on a Bonneville.

Yeah, most likely. Left Castle Rock about 8:30, got gas on Garden of the Gods road and then down 115 probably about 10-10:30 AM or so.

I've saw several Bonnies this weekend. Were you in a group with two other Bonnies?
