Tiger 1050 As ADV Bike ?

Hello All !

Would you take this Puppy (Assuming that it's fully dressed with all the Tourtech Goodies) on the Dalton to Prudhoe Bay ?

(I did it on 2011 GSA, not a big deal for this beast :-)

*Yes
*No
*Why

Appreciate any input

Oh yeah.

Ship some tck80's to Fairbanks.
Ride up and back on a new set of pr3's
Should be good to go.
Take an extra gallon at cold foot. Good for 250 miles.
Have fun.

..yeah, as fare as I remember cooldfoot then Deadhors, not remember if you can fuel in Wisemen too .... but I posted the question cuz I thought the Dalton can give me a good indication about Tiger "ADV" capabilities

Next on my agenda is SoCAL to Prince Rupert to the Cassair & than the Transcanadian (Using Country Roads as much as possible)

here is a wonderful report from Darth Peach, good photography and comments. Her bike was for that ride and still is (after having a go with the new 800 Tiger) the Tiger 1050.

And you can skip a lot of the TT bling.

...wallah. this is more or less what I'm talking about .... unpaved, gravel, some Fire-Trail, mud rain, minimum Slab but not something extreme ..it's seems that the Tiger is both fun & capable.
As a Bemmer Guy for 35 years, I never had the chance to deal with Chains & maintaining a Chain on a trip like this, I'll have to look into this too ....

Thanks guys
