Joining the XCX club.

Put my deposit down today on a 2015 Tiger XCX in black.
Pretty much stock except for heated grips, high screen and an alarm.
Have the black expedition luggage going on too.

Had to trade in my 09 Street Triple to make it work because I also bought one of these:



Now I have to wait a week or so for delivery.

I hope they were gentle to you, that's a steep price to pay for a tiger

Congrats Highriver.

I get mine on Saturday and head straight off for a mini tour of the Cotswolds.

Got mine yesterday!

I got a new XCX yesterday after 2 years on a KLR. Immediately put 200 miles on it, having a big smile on my face the whole time I can't wait to finish the break in period so I can really have some fun

Picked up Big Traily (pics incoming once I'm on a proper computer) and rode it to the Cotswolds.

Plush ride and all good except for wind blast at my head.
Madstad screen incoming, which should sort it.
Decided to go for Metal Mule panniers for it too.

Do folks tend to go with hard panniers and soft luggage on the back, rather than a hard top box?
I see a lot of that configuration about.

Lots of gentle b-roding today as I have to keep it under 5k for the next little while.

How tall are you? I have a lot of wind blast too, but don't like the look of those barn door madstads. Have you considered a laminar lip? At least you could take that off if you're only b-roading. I'm ok up to 100 kph more or less...

I never run hard top boxes. Never liked the look. Maybe if I could find a rather small one positioned closer to the rider. I'm always one up, and the soft panniers can be strapped over the passenger seat. Such a top box sticks out way to far behind the bike, and makes you look like a pizza delivery scooter...

Still looking for the right set of (side-) panniers... Any ideas?

New bags coming soon...

You need to check out the new triumph Tiger hardbags. I think they are called the adventure or the expedition bags or something like that. They are actually going to be released here in May sometime but I have checked them out and they are pretty sweet. I coordinate a RAT pack up in VA and the GM was just down in NC doing the marketing release video/photo shoot for the new bags.

I'm still trying to figure out a financial way to get a Tiger XCx as soon as I can, I have test ridden the bike a number of times and it's awesome.

Don't make a rush decision, definitely wait and check them out.
