Anybody take a Tiger 800 ABS (roadie version) off road?

Hello good people,

First off, I'm new to the forum and I did run a search for this but couldn't quite find much. Anyway I'm curious to know if any of you have taken a non-XC tiger off road. If so, what kind of terrain did you take it on and how did the bike handle it?

Check out posts by inmate Klinquist. He's taken his roadie on some pretty gnarly terrain.
I imagine a roadie with knobbies would be pretty decent on gravel and fire roads, and probably more if you're a good rider.

I used to take my roadie off-road quite a bit. With decent tires (TKC80's) it will go just about anywhere. I found a deal on used XC so I upgraded. The 19" front tire wasn't a fan of deep gravel/sand/obstacles but my skills limited me more than the bike. There are definitely some posts on advrider with others who have done the same.

Maybe a dumb question but can the ABS be turned off on a Roadie?

Same way that you turn ABS off on the XC. Use the setup menu at engine start. You need to turn it off every time you stat the engine as it defaults to on..

There are two roadies (both white) on this video. Not sure if you understand spanish but you can watch at least for entertainment purposes.
