On my 2012 Tiger 800XC I have the Touratech set-up with the HID on the left and fog on the right. The HID only works with the high beam and it's either the HID on or the fog on, not both.

I've compared the seat on the Tiger 800XC and the newest F800GS. For comfort the Tiger seat was more comfortable. The seat on the BMW resembled sitting on a narrow plank of wood. I'm no tubby, but...

My 2012 Tiger 800XC has Touratech Zega Pro Side Cases and Top Case, so there's plenty of wind resistance. I also have a MadStad 22 inch adventure winshield as well. Running between 65-70 MPH my...

If you are referring to the Chaco Culture ruins south of Guadalupe, I don't have any information about "Banco de la Casa". I wonder if it has any relationship to the village of Casa Salazar,...

I'm not in a place where I have my old maps. I can tell you that Pena Blanca was the location where the stage route crossed the river. From there it was north-northwest to San Ysidro where it...

The route you're taking is part of the Jemez-Zuni trail. Before the railroad hit New Mexico, if you traveled from Santa Fe to Fort Wingate, you took this route. Albuquerque was considered an out of...

I own a 2011 KLR and a 2012 Tiger 800XC. The Kawasaki for me is just not a higher speed highway bike. If I could take two lane blacktop and gravel roads on longer trips (30-50mph) the KLR is just...

I bought the 2011 KLR 650 first, intending to use it as an Adventure Bike. It is still a work in progress. After the attached photo was taken I added SW Motech crash bars and some Denali LED lights....

I've had my Tiger 800XC since July and zero problems. Before buying I wanted to compare it with a BMW 800GS but the dealer had none in stock. Instead I took a test ride on the BMW 1200 GS and...

The GPS is the Garmin 660. The little hood I bought from Touratech helps a little. With direct sunlight on it, it's still hard to see. And as you know here in New Mexico, cloudy days are few and...

The seat is actually the optional Triumph Gel Seat. Ordered it when I got the bike. The Tank bag is a $70 Triumph option as well. It has the rain cover and place for a map. Works fine for the...

I have the 20 inch clear adventure shield. Works great. For normal riding I can leave the face shield up on my helmet since most of the wind (and bugs) are deflected over me. The MadStad system...
