Nice piccies, what tyres are you running?

I have a Cagiva Navigator but it has a 18" front, and have not found any suitable D/S tyres.

Would not even attempt mild off road with Bridgestone 020's!!!

So this is the more common view of a Gran Canyon owners have?

Joking aside, that Italian flag colored GC is a bike worthy of someone who's handle is ImaPoser. Beautiful bike.

Glad to see there is another NAVIGATOR owner on board, here in Mexico the Cagiva dealer has a front wheel kit with a 21 " rim, so you can use any off road tyre you want, and it also increases your ground clearence. Some lads that made the swap say, that for serious off road work it is a must, but you´ll be surprised where the NAVIGATOR can wander off road even with standard tyres (just add a good bash plate)

Navigator and Vege

Thanks for the response, you have given me hope!!!

I do not intend to go for a 21" front wheel as it is too radical for what I want.

I jusy want to go a bit further off road than I can at the moment

I was already thinking of the Gran Canyon front as there is a decent selection of tyres for the 19" rim

Am I right in thinking the Navigator was never sold in the USA?

I managed to purchase a brand new Power Commander 2 from a guy in the USA for $100.00, was very pleased!!!!

GC in Tacoma

Hey were any of you Gran Canyon riders on I-5 in Tacoma, 1/29 0700. It's always good to see a GC out and about.

At the starting line.




Beautiful Mt. Ranier



Under the eagles eye.
