any major issues besides the whole "stalling", farting", "keep on restarting every 10m" issue that is apparently now sorted..

there really is no other option between the F800 and the 800XC...

everyone happy with theirs I suppose ???
Them Tigers is shit.

Mine has a serious design fault - I fill the tank with petrol and around 300km later it s empty. My tyres keep wearing out.

The damn thing even gets dirty if I ride it off bitumen.

Don't believe all the positive reviews - it is a global conspiracy...

Thanks mate. It was tough to say goodbye to the DR but hopefully tigger will be a suitable replacement.

I have had my tigger for a while now and really like the bike. I am starting to think the tigger design team was an after school project in some ways.

Who in there right mind would wrap a wiring loom around the rear shock and linkage.

Spent yesterday arvo relocating the wiring loom and removing the side stand switch.
