I hear ya. I can handle the sporty okay in sand, but I just got the Strom and I would hate to drop it.. Maybe with some dual sport tires I will have more faith in it... and me. Razz

I'm back home now. I rode 1500 miles in 3 days. My Tiger now has 5800 miles. I rode the Dragon about 20x, the Skyway, Moonshiners 28, & the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Some random pics:

Niiice. If you kept receipts and did a thousand of it in 24 hrs, you qualify for an Iron Butt patch. Very Happy

It's been a long time since I posted anything. I'm almost at 7,000 miles & love my Tiger more & more. My wife is extremely jealous. I don't know how to convince her there is nothing to be jealous about. I guess I need to stop talking about it, ect...



Not me, but check out this deep crossing. The guy made it across no problem.

Love the look of the Tiger, I like the V-Strom too. I'd like to get something lighter for my next bike, but not sure what yet though.

Been awhile

Post by DirtFreak on Thu Jul 19, 2012 9:14 am

Just wanted to share some pics & stories.
I had my first get-off on the Tiger yesterday. It was pouring rain & I lost traction in a corner. The bike slid into a curb almost parallel throwing me over onto wet grass. No damage to me or the Tiger. I feel extremely lucky. Honestly, I think I psyched myself out & experienced some target fixation. When I lost traction I immediately thought "don't hit curb" instead of how I wanted to make the turn. I made it 10,800 miles without any kind of tip over. That's not easy considering 10% of the miles are on dirt.
Here's some random pics
