    Yes, a couple times. just remember it's it's pretty heavy when loaded with 2up & we did some great single track in N GA. The suspension does ok, turned the preload up on the rear...she ain't no lightweight....if you are an experienced rider you'll be fine. We are planning ride to CO next year & my wife wants to come along....so we will be 2 up.

    I was out last weekend testing the Tiger in the dirt at our local ORV riding area with my son on the back and didn't even notice a difference.

    Those look awesome on your bike are they the Touratech boxes? Did you install your fog lights or did the dealer do it?

    Yes they are Touratech, just show up today. I installed the lights myself. Here is some advice, first it was easy and second it works best if your going to install heated grips do it all at the same time.

    Damn those boxes look good. I wanted Touratech's but couldn't wait for 'em as I already had a couple trips planned when I picked up my bike. Sweet ride!

    The heated grips came in today. The directions if got for the lights said i had to remove the tank. That sounds hard did you remove your tank?

    I've been lurking on here for a long time, finally something I can post. I do have some upcoming trips planned now that I have a bike I can do them on. All these pictures make me hate living in the Houston area, it is such a long ride to anyplace decent (unless someone on here knows otherwise and could enlighten me).

    The bike is looking great. Great backdrops...now how about turning off the date/time settings on the camera? Kind of spoils a great pic :wink:

    Thanks for posting the pictures of the bike/bags from the rear, that looks like a great setup. Wow....That's a very beautiful part of the country you have in your back yard. I'd like to get out there this year, how late into the year can I ride there before the weather turns ugly?

    It would be nice if someone from your neck of the woods would organize a Tiger gathering next year... :wink:

    You can safely ride around Moab into October. Once November rolls around it's a crapshoot. Could be really nice or the snow could be flying. Of course, riding over the Rockies in October can get interesting.

    Hmmm...a gathering of the Tigers in Moab. Not a bad idea...
