    2 THINGS.

    1) I thought white was the best color for the Tiger until they introduced that Matte Green. Now I'm jealous.

    2) I had that same truck (well mine was an 82), but in more of a baby-sh!t brown/orange color...

    Enjoy the new and old ride.

    Thanks! The truck is a 20 footer, but looks cleaner in pics... I think the green pushed me over the edge to buy a new Tiger.

    Having been through back areas of Glasshouses Mountains. So wet, muddy & slippery. A few hairy moments. With my inexperience, probably a good situation for a back up.

    But damns it was FUN!!!:D:cool:

    CHAOS!!!

    IN TIMES OF TRIAL AND ADVERSITY... LOOK HARD... LEAN HARDER... AND OPEN THE THROTTLE WIDE.

    The hills look flat on the video but they were really a test for the 500 pound bike.

    Sorry to hear that. :lol3 After hauling our bikes south 2 years ago on my snowmobile trailer, I swore never again and bought a covered trailer in CA. One of my best motorcycle "farkles" to date.

    The White Rim a 103 mile "jeep" road out of Moab Utah. It can be done in a day, but a permit is needed if you plan on overnighting it. There is volunteer camping at the turn in if doing the rim anti clockwise. Also amazing camping all along river road where there is a natural fresh water spring.

    It can also be accessed from Moab versus the main entrance north of town.

    The "White Rim" is a layer of Pot Ash (Gypsum) that was deposited ?????? years ago. The trail goes around Island in the Sky part of Canyonlands Nation Park. The sights are beyond description...

    Rob, killer pics. It was great to meet you at death valley. Glad to see that you reached home safely. :D Again thanks for all the help. My foot is in a cast now. Waiting for it to heal up so that I can get to riding again.
