Exactly but I got the clear.


I didn't take anymore pics because it was 90deg F & 90% humidity. I took that single track pic because I stopped to pee.
The only reason I rode it is because the trail was closed & I wouldn't hold anybody up. I ride my 450exc there a lot.

I love this thread. great videos guys. here's a couple of mine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vshxCfPQwkM
skip the commentary from 4:03-6:17 I forgot to delete it before saving it. there is a steep tight down hill at 7:34.

we need to start a thread on what we've done to make them more trail friendly. I had the aluminum Triumph skid plate that doesn't protect the oil filter. In fact it will hit it.

notice how shinny the oil made my front tire. it was a 45 minute ride one way to find an Auto Zone that carried an oil filter that matched. the skid plate also didn't protect against rocks coming up and hitting it.

our solution to try to prevent it from happening again.

My solution before our next ride was to make one out of 3/16" steel that is a little taller and wider at the top to protect it.

How did I miss this thread?

I probably shouldn't follow small bikes... (somewhere in Arkansas)


But I never learn (MillCreek ATV trails)


Imogene pass with 2 Tigers (800 and a 955) and some "other" brand of bike...

Right on brother, awesome to see others riding what we're now affectionately calling a "Highway Dirt Bike" in it's natural environment

And tanks to everyone for keeping this thread alive!

There are other threads out there that address making it more capable off road, but you're welcome to go off on tangents here, just post some fun, off kilter related pics and vids once and a while.

Great stuff guys!

- I think that qualifies as singletrack

- So... that's what Missouri is like... it is Missouri right... never had any reason to inquire until your video. That looks like good fun!

Hopefully we'll have something entertaining to post after this weekends ride. I better re-set my rear facing camera so it's a little more mud free

Yeah, there's a chance it is going to be a little squishy.... around... 95% chance.

My brilliant idea from the weekend. Ride a trail I've never been on before, by myself, without really telling anyone where I was going.

It was going pretty well until I should have went right. Ended up back it back down the trail a couple hundred feet, then taking the easy way around.

I'm still amazed how much stuff the Tiger will go thru / over even with my dumb ass on it.

Get a 15 tooth counter shaft sprocket so you can do even dumber stuff and at least you have a spare tire just in case

No dumbass there. Going at a sensible pace for being alone. I love it when, at 7m50s we see that all you're doing is going to the shops to buy a new tyre.

Single track racing the Tiger 800XC

Lots of good video being shot and posted here. Awesome what these bikes can do. 15 tooth and stiffer suspension makes a huge difference. Here's a little video of racing through the trees.






I also built a mount for my Scotts Stabilizer to control deflection off rocks, roots, ruts, etc since no one has one available and it looks to be middle of summer before one is available. A few hours in the shop did the trick...

These accidental excursions are the reason I always carry enough basic survival gear to spend the night...just in case I get myself into too much trouble...

Great video!!
