Where did you get the E07?

With shipping they are within $1-2 of the K60. I wanted the heavy duty sidewall yellow stripe 4-ply Dakar version, but I think they are out of stock on those until later this month.

I just ordered a modified Soupy's adjustable link to be able to increase clearance. Added $35 and it took them about three hours from receipt of order to get it out. I'll let you know how it goes.
I may do the TR on my KTM. The trails I was on yestreday was the Extreme Fun | 2013-09-22 | Winchendon, MA route See post - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=916896

More ground clearance isn't needed on that route. Just a good line around the big stuff. I'll be curious how the extra height works out.

Vanjoosten, I ran a TKC80 front and E07 Dakar rear and that Mitas really digs in the crud and handles well on pavement. I sold the bike with just over 4,000 miles and was still going strong.

Lovin what you've done with the front end. Looks like a motard front mud guard. Would like to see some close up pictures of how you did it.
You've got your Tiger well set up there, with the front mud guard mod she looks the goods!

I originally temporarily put it on with cable ties about 6 months ago to see how it would look and if it would affect anything like the cooling, before making an aluminium clamp.

Cable ties have worked fine since so i figured its not really worth my time to make a bracket and theyre now a permanent fixing.

They cross over each other on the lower triple clamp. Theres just enough room for them to sit under the bearing boss.

Plastic is the motard from acerbis. My triumph mudguard was destroyed after 50,000km of intermittent dirt use. Plastic is just too brittle

Dead sexy bike. You may need to install some FAA approved running lights with the amount of air you're catching there.

Also, happy to note that you have a bunch of gear we distribute on your bike. Side carriers, Barkbusters™, skidplate and Steel toprack(?).
