Love the tires and the screen.

The TKC's are pretty versatile. But like most compromises, a tire that tries to do it all can excel at nothing. But TKC's do most things pretty well. I do enough dirt roads, grass, and single track that I'd rather have the knobby dual-sport pattern than more universal treads.

I picked up the MRA Vario used from a TigerTriple member, just to try it out. It's my favorite of the ones I've tried so far... stock Tiger w/ Laminar Lip, Gustaffson, Cee Bailey #1, Cee Bailey #2, MRA Touring, and a sport screen.

The Vario is by far the smoothest and most comfortable for me (6'7").

What about the seat I'm 6'4" and find I always want to side farther back into the ridge of the two piece seat. I tryed the gel seat but it's no better. Any suggestions

I have the gel seat, but I raised it and changed the angle a bit to suit me.

Get. The. Corbin. The stock seat is ok, but the Corbin made the Tiger very comfy and easy to ride all day. It also eases the knee position is what I found. It's nice and wide so midgets will not like the added height but it suits us giraffes just fine. Plus my wife likes it, the pillion is angled up so it stops her from sliding into me all the time. Plus you can get her a backrest for it. Only things I don't like are that it is HEAVY and there is no cutout underneath for the toolkit. Small price to pay.

The Corbin is fantastic. The only drawback is that it's taller and wider as mentioned. This
Hasn't bothered me, in fact it forces me to get forward on the bike to the narrow part of the seat when cornering off bitumen.

+1 Comfy, heavy, wide, I have the passenger rest. Makes it hard for me to flat foot the bike now unless I scootch forward a bit. 6'3" - 35 inseam.

-1 on tool pocket on the underside?? I have one under mine? Got the seat about June this year for my 06. Just had to transfer the triangular rubber "keeper" to the Corbin seat.

Huh. Guess they changed the design at some point. Def no room for a toolkit under mine!
