Cool2 2012 Tiger XC with Coo Case

First time ever posting... Trying out this Coo Case I picked up from Twisted Throttle. Have not had the primered lid panel painted as of yet. I am in the process of getting it ADV ready. Wondering if anyone has installed a case like this and how well it has held up off-road. The Cortech Mini Tank bag with the magnets is a great fit for this bike if you are looking a small everyday bag. So far on road both cases stay on with no trouble even at 100+ mph. I am also looking for a windshield or something to lessen the wind I am getting. I am 6'3" and feel like a bobble head when going 60+, especially in traffic behind a large vehicle. Any suggestions and or pics?

Welcome !

That Coo case looks like a good fit.

As for a screen, there is a thread (do a search) specifically for Tiger windscreens. It seems the Madstad system is very popular. It's pricey though. I'm saving up for one for my Tiger.

+1
Screens are a VERY personal thing. What works for me won't work for you etc etc.
I'm afraid you're going to have to spend out and try one or two until you find something that is acceptable to you. All this type of bike seem to have this trouble. There's always a screen thread on every forum on every bike.

I am 5'9" and have a Cee Baily on my 06 955i and love it. I believe the wind is just hitting the top of my helmet. I know these are two really different bikes, but they might be worth a look.

Pic of my Steamer this morning...rally screen removed, crashbars sold off, stock wheels back on. Debating losing the high front fender, too...



Doesn't look too bad in the shadows, from 10' away, in a picture.

And now you've got to remove all the pictures in all the posts you've ever made on every forum with it covered in mud.

I have that tank bag and am installing that exact case in a couple hours.

There is a Givi screen on the way. Mine is a 1050.

It's such a bother having to ride around Christmas time. It was 83 degrees today and perfect. Everyone else seemed to be off shopping or whatever. Nice to be riding.....





Merry Christmas to all you FFs !
