    How are you liking that Tiger? Thinking about heading that direction from my DL1000.

    It's just what the doctor ordered :D

    here is what I wrote in the tiger thread:

    "oh - and wtf guys? Riding that bike is like cheating. totally forgiving, easy to ride, waaaay too smooth. Even shows you the gear you are in :dunno I am used to flogging the old crap I owned. :lol3"

    Great pics and congrats on the new tigger - that bike never fails to bring smiles. The Tiger forum here is a fantastic resource btw.

    beautiful day for a ride + pending on the altitude peak season for the fall foliage = good day! :D

    for the folks familiar with the area, that was today's route:
    Big Laurel - Revere - Hot Springs - 209 - 63 - South Turkey - Hooker Gap - 257 - BRP - 151 - Wedge - River Road - Jupiter - Barnardsville....

    and something different.... 250 Suzuki :scratch

    We did many of the same roads Saturday. I told the young lady at the Big Laurel coffee store how much I appreciated her being there. Nothing like some good coffee in the afternoon when you're starting to fade a little.

    Nice Pics BTW. It seems some of the best color is found on these side roads where the skinny young trees are reaching for the sun. I'm hoping the winds expected later this week with the cold front don't blow them all off the trees.

    Feel like my ridding partner is cheating on me... sigh. So glad you had a good day on the bike. It may be early spring before I'm back on the bike.

    Was playing there last week, you have to include Lonesome Mtn, with Revere though! Ran paint fork rather than 197, figured all the rain would have washed more than usual sand on 197. Accomplished my goal to wear out my tires so I could put new ones on before my spring trip down there, in fact a little too good, had to replace the front as it was bald as a baby's butt, with 3 days left to ride.
