    I've got a buddy who is looking into an XC so I thought I'd check out the forum to see how the bike is. Man, the Tiger looks impressive, VERY bad-ass. I'm a KLR rider so I have no experience on going fast, but a triple should have some nice throttle snap.
    It looks like the Tiger is about 50# more than the KLR, but the bike should tear up the twisties and forest service type roads.

    Didn't take you long to chop the screen. Better?

    That is a screen from powerbronze :D The oe screen on the testride was too noisy so when I placed my order for the bike I also ordered the screen to be fitted as well. It looks good in black and I think its a better screen than the large oe

    I'm too fat and Topeka's straight isn't long enough. :lol3 I managed 109mph.

    When I picked it up in Colorado we came though back down out of one of the mountain passes onto some spectacular roads and I managed 119mph. That's the fastest I've ever done in a wheeled vehicle.

    Got my bike back yesterday from the guys at Lexington motorsports who fixed up some recalls and an electrical issue. She'd been sitting still for far far to long this year.

    We are fortunate enough to note that Appalachia is still rideable even in the cooler temps. As the leaves start to change; I doubt the wilds will be resistible regardless of weather!

    Excellent picture!

    I like those crash bars for the radiator, they are the best I've seen. who makes those, hopefully they make them for the tiger?
