Not an XC, but made the Arctic Circle...
Here's Another Picture.....
And one more.... Just North of the Yukon River Bridge
Alaska Tiger when did you make the road trip to the Circle?
Here in Oregon, fall is already showing signs of its arrival. Despite rain in the forecast, instead of driving I took the Tiger for a weekend on the coast.
Not too bad.
As soon as I crossed the coast range on the way back, it was dry and sunny. And I came upon this dirt road.

It was not the first time I took it down a gravel route. But it served to remind me that this is a very well tuned machine. Its smooth engagement on acceleration and braking translate for good behavior on loose surfaces like this ball-bearing gravel road. I did not push it on the curves, but the few times I rolled on the throttle with a bit more enthusiasm it showed composure. And on a straight line the bike settles down very, very well. The original tires hold well.
Bone stock except for WalMart gel seat pad. Just bought it today.
We went on August 30th. Just a little 350 mile day trip from Fairbanks (where we all live).
cool I want to do it all over again!

Pics from the last week in the Southern Seirras in California.
Just picked mine up Friday. I love this bike!
Nice camping/hunting trip Xcountry-Rider. looked like a good time.
XCountry, what tank bag is intalled on your bike?
I'm using the Triumph OEM Adventure bag. I like it its big and fits perfect. The Tiger OEM products are all recommended besides the panniers.
The coolest part of the trip was seeing two does bolting out of the tree line into the meadow right in front of us with a coyote right on there heels. You don't see that every day. I've heard of coyotes hunting deer but it was awesome seeing it in real life.
A frosty start to the day
Here is some pictures of my awesome ride...

Is there a better view, nice road on a perfect riding machine :)
Check out the mirror for my honest opinion... Thumbs up...
The Triumph is not a bike, it's not a MC it is a proper motorcycle, can't belive how much torque the engine got, all you need is 6th gear on the road it just pulls, W O W love this bike. Anyone who has not tried a proper 3 cylinder Triumph, just do it... It is a truly awesome machine...
X Country you need different tires
