The TKCs ride great. I have scraped the pegs on them. I am keeping the TKC up front for traction and Mitas or Heidenau on the rear for long wear.

That looks like Erico Motorsports in Denver. I was out there in August and stopped by to look around. I was hoping to compare the Stelvio NTX and the Explorer but all they had was the Explorer.

Yep, Erico. They had a leftover 2012 that they made me a deal on.

This bike is just F.U.N.!!!

Must be nice you southern over 70 degree having sons of guns. I am up here in the great white north. No riding till April. But the riding is pretty awesome for a Tiger. Keep the great pics coming to get me through the winter.
