    Vintagebob- I got a chance to ride those roads on a rental BMW while on business travel dur a weekend. You can't beat that area for diversity. Awesome riding in those hills between San Jose and Santa Cruz.

    Dubl-A,

    Do you have some sort of foot peg mounted to your engine guards?

    Nice bike, by the way!!

    Took the Tiger back to a hill that I could not climb with the Battlewings.
    If at first you do not succeed, go wide fucking open.
    Had to cross some slippery, moss soaked rock pass to get to the hill. Lots of fun that was.

    The previous Sunday I took it to an off road motorsports park (seems like mostly an ATV park). They had a motocross track with table tops and a smaller "track" which I spent quite a bit of time at. No action shots unfortunately. =[ The Tiger did catch plenty of air and the Fullbore tires did a hell of a lot better than I expected.

    Thanks Z, yea I made these and used safety strap to mount to the crashbars. They aren't perfectly positioned but I just rest my MX boots over them and it works fine.

    I see you are using the stock mirrors and that it appears that they were adjusted by the ground. They didn't break the mounting assembly? The reason I ask is that I like the larger size of the stock mirrors in my urban area but fear riding in the dirt with them. What's your thought on them in the dirt?

    The right side mirror I cracked the glass a little after picking the pick up. It fell onto its side offroad. The left side mirror was actually adjusted by the ground a bit, but I moved it to the location shown in the picture because I did not want it to be smashed and busted if I dropped the Tiger again on that hill. I loosened the controls so that I can move them by hand (still takes some doing, they don't just flop around). I saw some of these http://www.amazon.com/Emgo-20-64580-Replacement-Mirror-Enduro/dp/B002305A1E mirrors at the local dealer and am considering putting them on the Tiger as they fold inwards.

    I have dropped the Tiger on the right side since cracking the mirror and it has not gotten any worse, surprisingly. If I were to do it again I would just take them off and put the EMGO mirrors on from the start.

    You can always just loosen the stockers and turn them in if the trail gets knarly.
