    Anyone interested in a second, smaller version on Vancouver Island? Same base camp concept?[/QUOTE]

    I've been putting on an Island ride for 6 yrs running, but would for sure be into joining in on somebody else's version... Maybe I could then retire mine as it is a lot of work to organize, especially the last one in 2012... Here is a link to the 09: http://www.dualsportbc.com/forums/showthread.php?6089-North-Island-Ride-09

    And the 2010: http://www.dualsportbc.com/forums/showthread.php?8262-North-Island-Ride-Pictures

    All those areas have great potential for circle routes, even Prince George could work.

    Hi all,

    I have a spot picked out for the ride next year and will post info up this weekend. Looks like a great area for riding and I'm looking forward to mapping out some new routes to ride.


    Cheers

    We are LOVING them for real...the addition of the ESA is proving to be an asset on the road....

    I rode one last year in Baja and loved it, they feel so much like a street bike being so smooth riding. My bike not so smooth but it's been good to me and always gets me home. I'm so use to riding it when I get on another bike all I think about is getting back on mine :huh

    Test ride.

    the new addition of the ESA rocks on the 800. AS we had the pleasure of riding Triumph Tiger 800XC's last year for 44 days...this bike now compares to the road comfort of the Tigers when the ESA is on comfy mode!:D

    yep..you are right...the Twin is not a smooth as the Triple...but you need to ride this bike on a road like I-5 from the border to Seattle in comfort mode...you will see what I am saying...:deal I could now write a review comparing the '13 F8 to the '12/'13 Tiger:wink:

    What has the European Space Agency got to do with it? I'd concentrate on the basics more, like improved suspension maybe.

    That sure is an auwful purdy bronze color, have not seen one yet and I'll bet looked even better in person. Nice bike. :D We are saving our pennies so we can buy one of these for my wife.

    For the suspension needs talk to Alex at Konflict Motorsports. I was talking to him a few months ago and he was showing me the sweet new set up he has made for these bikes fixing the suspension short comings from the factory.
