    Good Morning,
    I have just picked up my 1st ever adventure bike. I purchased a 2018 Tiger triumph 1200 xrx. This is my Daily driver. I also have a Yamaha YZ250f Street legal up at the cabin at Wolf lake. I have been riding motorcycles since 1994. I have been on Cruisers since 1997. This past Spring I started looking at the BMW line of Adventure bikes. I ran into a few issues.
    1. Height
    2. height.. Hahaha.
    A buddy picked up a Triumph tiger 800 xca, Labor day weekend I took it for a test ride from home to the cabin and Fell in love. I wanted a little more power so Tuesday I went to the dealers and started looking at everything KTM, Yamaha Tenere, Honda Africa twin, BMW (again), Suzuki Vstrom, Kawasaki. I ended up on the Triumph Tiger 1200.
    To make this long story short. I am looking for people to ride with on and off road. I need to get some 50/50 tires for the tiger and I also have crash bars on order.. Let me know if you are from West michigan or Baldwin area and want to get some miles on.

    Let me know when you get those 50/50 tires.

    We have alot of good ADV routes to share in the Gun Lake, Yankee Springs, Barry State Game, Allegan State Game Area, Twin Lakes & Fremont area.

    And a few of us usually meet up every Sunday morning for Bike Church at Common Ground coffee shop 1319 Fulton street in downtown Grand Rapids.
