BW, at 80mph on the speedo you are going about 76mph on the GPS.
Ha! Sorry Rob. I was late to the party. Should have finished reading through to the last page. Get your brakes sorted?

I have not received them yet. I ordered EBC sintered for the front & back. I also booked the 12k service for 12-3-12. I should be set for a long time after that. Lets plan a ride for 12-8 or 12-9. I want to show you Chickasway River WMA. It's not far from the end of Mason Ferry Rd. Do you have better tires yet?

Rob, don't be turning this into a tire and oil thread now! I figure I have until the stock tires wear out to get accustomed to the bike and THEN I can start looking for tires, too! LOL

Aired down the stock tires are not bad on dry dirtroads. Unless you pull over in the deep stuff on the side of the road (ask Burmbuster about that ). I mean its not like there is any traffic to get out of the way. Just stop in the road.

For the HDB guards, I used the stock bar end weights and hardware, so theoretically - the Kaoko (or any other throttle lock) should work. That is my orange bike in the pics. I highly recommend the HDBs, they are very sturdy. I am embarassed to say that I have tested them more than once on both the dirt and the street and they are bulletproof. They do require the ROX risers, because HDB has not made a template specifically for the Tiger. You should inquire about this.

The mirrors are far better than the stock mirrors because they offer an unobstructed view. They can also be folded in, but I have never found it necessary to do this.

Like the look of the hdb handguards, i want some rox risers too anyway so not really a problem there

Do you need to fit that handlebar top clamp to fit the guards? I have stuff mounted there so could be a problem

The touratech top engine bars look good on the bike, i was worried about not been able to remove panels etc without taking them off, good to hear that there is space.


...man my list is getting long and expensive

Yeah, that was one for the ages! Never figured my first spill would be at an almost complete stand still. (At least there were no witnesses)

And stay away from sand, Backwoods, until you get the new tires. And don't follow Rob Dirt through trails thinking its gonna be easy!
If you plan on waiting unitl the stockers wear out it will probably be awhile.

+1 on the Barkbusters. They are the shit. Easy to install and a proven product.

Yeah, I can't wait any longer. I will keep the stockers and swap them out if I plan another road trip in the near future, which I'm sure WILL happen.
