Really looking forward to that. Was discussing possible suspension mods with my Triumph dealer recently so a comparison would great. Was just watching the Portland to Dakar clip on ICON Tigers. I need to show that to the 990 rider who referred to my "road bike" recently.

The TIGER blows the 990 in the dust!!!
I can hammer on my TIGER just like a small bike
I loved my 990 but the Tiger is much more sporty !!!!

STAY TUNED !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to seeing the bikes finished, the ''Portland to Dakar'' youtube Video of them running all over the place just shows the abilities of these bikes

This will be a great adventure to follow

Show me a stock Tiger doing that and I'll agree.

Not a dis to our Tigers, but that awesome video is like running a car off the showroom floor in Dakar.

I hear you on that, and that is indeed true. The analogy would be to buy a stock GSXR 1000 think that it is the same bike as the one in the SBK. Underneath though, the bike is still there (frame, engine, geometry). I do not think in a second that I buy a Tiger and go off road like mad. I understand that it is a very good ground base to make it very capable, should I want to. Something that will never happen with a Transpalp, a Varadero or a Vstorm for example...

We have a ride coming up in the Berkshires of Massachusetts in about a month. (Big Bike Adventure Ride) The trails are dirt roads and hero sections are abandoned dirt roads that have sunk to bombed out powerline type 4x4 roads. The hero sections are a real challenge and fun on a big bike. Boring has hell I would imagine on a KTM EXC. Funny thing is people show up on KTM EXC's. On big bikes we plog along laughing like fools at these big bikes cleaning easy rock gardens and mud sections. One by one we stop and watch each other get over some stone wall or water crossing. Great fun.


I have an KTM EXC-F and the Tiger 800XC. I use the EXC for enduro/turkey runs. The Berkshire turkey run and dual sport last year was a small bike event and depending on skill level you chose TR or DS. I showed up with my EXC and did the TR. People showed up with KLR's, GS' and 800XC's on the Dual Sport loop. I felt bad for them as part of the TR loop met up with the DS loop. We were on a jeep trail that had lots of loose rock and ledges followed by deep mud. There were big bikes sleeping everywhere. It must have been a day of misery for them.

Right tool for the trails. Everyone should have multiple bikes

I am enjoying this thread Great looking stuff!

Tell me about it

No issues until Fireman Rd. and mud bog to School House. The Tiger eats up those rocky section like Tacos in Jelisco. At least I was dropping it in the mud and not on the rocks. Think I'll be skipping that one this year, unless I get a small bike.

Agreed. Even before they started filming one of the stunt riders (Nick Apex) broke his leg on a Tiger and they had to get a replacement rider.

I think they had a van full of 6 Tigers and barely made it with one running at the end. They even show the destruction of one on the dry lake bed at the end of the video. If you can YouTube some out takes of these videos you'll see more carnage than you would ever do to your own bike.

I love my Tiger, but dirt bike it's not. Dirt road bike it's fine, but too much work to take it anywhere else.
