On your front 'Beak' it looks like you have what we in Canada call 'Deer Whistles' are those actually 'Kangaroo whistles'?

One of those, 'I wish my leg was longer' moments, when turning the bike around on the trail.

Slow motion ejection of the pilot.

Hi all!


Got it last Wednesday, demo-used.





Did a little off-roading this weekend, but with Metzeler Tourance and Bridgestone Battlewings I couldn't go to far into the woods, due to heavy rain the last week.

My Tiger 800 xc

Here are some pics of my Tiger. I got it on May 12 (16 days old) and have 1500 mile so far. I am going to buy a lot of accessories this week.

So here is a list of components I plan to buy:

Tires: Heidenau K60 Scout
Crash Bars: SW-Motech
Exhaust: Leo Vince Carbon
Panniers: Ammo Cans
Skid Plate: Custom Build

I am a little concerned about the 2012 Heidenau Scouts since the new one have a center bead. I am wondering how they track off road.

Also I am a total newbie to forums so how do I post images without pasting a URL?

Thanks

Just got back from a trip. Hauled the bike in the truck from NM to FL. Had the family in tow so no "I rode mine" for that part. Saddled up in Pensacola and headed to Franklin, NC. 2 days to get there and 2 days of riding the mountain roads including the Tail of the Dragon, the Rattler and the Moonshiner. I had never been to that area as an adult and certainly never on a bike. The XC did great. Mounted the stock Battle Wings (been running Karoos) just for this trip. The group I was riding with were on baggers (Gold Wings and the big HDs) and large cruisers so no off-road.

Lots of riding and not lots of picture taking.









After 2 days in NC, my dad and I cut out for Indianapolis and took in the 500. Free motorcycle parking in the infield inside Turn 2!



We got stuck in traffic something fierce both coming and going to the race. She got REALLY hot, but no more uncomfortable than any bike would be in those conditions (mid 90's and high humidity moving a block every 30 min or so) and no function issues.

My bike is my daily driver, and much of the time is spent accessing trails for hiking.



Met another rider while out on the trail, we're both sporting Heidenau's.
