ha! Close enough! It's Seahorse luggage. I frigging love these things though! They are SO much lighter than pelican cases and after dropping the bike off road a coupe times, i can say they survived a couple beatings! $50 a piece is hard to beat!

I'm tuning 6K RPM's at 78 MPH with the 15 tooth sprocket. It's a cheap item and easy to install and may be worth trying out. The Tiger doesn't mind the RPM's but it does consume a little more gas.

I and other off road Tiger riders swear by the Mitas E-07. It peformes way better than expected on and off trail.
i've been eyeing the mitas e07 for a while. i like the tread pattern and they don't seem too expensive. but it looks like i'll have to get them online as we don't get those in malaysia.

am considering the anakee 3 for now as my rear is down to the wear marks.

Hey DC Bell are those pics taken in Big Bend Park? Was there on a Street Bike in 06 and loved it. Maybe not so much in June, but luckily I was well adjusted to 100+ temps fresh off the plane from Baghdad. Can't wait to ride the dirt stuff there.

The last pic was. The others were all taken in the area, but not actually inside the park. Some great riding down there!

Thanks as well!

Haha yeah they are but my high school colors (coming around 8 years since) were orange and black and i absolutely love that color mix. I thought the orange tiger was just bad ass. I am really digging my matte green though!

I went into the dealer having decided on the Matte Green, but they had sold the one on the floor just minutes before. They had a Black one (my second choice), so I took that (having read that they were the fastest).

All the colors do look really nice. But I hear that the white ones are a little slower than the rest.
