New to me tiger 800xc

Picked up a very lightly used nit even broken in 2013 tiger 800xc.

Can't wait to start riding her and doing some weekend adventures this spring/summer/fall and getting it tuned up to where I want so j can start doing some serious adventure traveling.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on the board for all the useful posts here. Has kept me entertained and motivated towards my goal of buying the bike. I already have a lot of the accessories so i wouldn't back down from buying it. That way I was committed.

Now if i can just figure out how to haul my rebreather and a bunch of dive gear with me on my adventures i will be all set. Perhaps I should just use my truck for those adventures.

Now just to sell my duc monster.

Regardless looking forward to meeting up with some of you on the trails.

Steve


Regards

Steve

Great bikes. I picked a new one up in September, mine is a little more then slightly used now. Been on a few trails and only dropped once.

Its a costly option, but the Touratech 45 liter Zega Pros should be large enough to hold or strap to them all your gear for diving. Good luck. I just bought a brand new white 2013 yesterday.

Thanks, I had been a long time lurker, joined last year and finally after many months of research bought what i figured would best suit my riding style after checking new/used bikes out. was btw the BMW 800GS and tiger, was going to buy new then this just kind of fell in my lap well when I was searching the net, very low mileage (<1000) not even used. Mind you I will have to do some add ons to get it up to where I want it but that is half the fun and it gives me something to do this winter.

Anyways, sadly I am back to work in a few days after enjoying a good xmas break with the girl, sadly I have to work in Calgary and commute back and forth btw here and Vancouver Island when I can. Sucks but it has to be that way for right now.

Well like I said I am going to be looking forward to the summer and some rides. And getting this puppy off road instead of the garage it sat in for the last 7 months.
