The Freedom Cycle build on the XC is very cool.... no doubt.

I don't think you can go wrong with choosing a smaller, lighter single cylinder bike for off-road riding. If I were a bigger, younger, stronger guy I would go more places off-road with the Tiger, but at 160lbs and 55 years of age I find the smaller bike more to my liking in the dirt.... and even just for pushing around in the garage.... who knows, maybe just a lone 690 in the garage one day....

Have fun and keep posting up your progress....
