Hello from Northern Colorado

I purchased a Tiger 800 XC in March and have almost 10,000 miles on it. I am new to Adventure riding and am having a great time at it. Unfortunately as I write this the bike is back at the dealer for the second time because it has lost its idle setting. It stalls unless I hold the throttle open slightly. The problem is sporadic and of course it stopped doing it again after I trailered the bike to the dealer. Last time they remapped the ECU and that seemed to fix it. I see on various forums that others are having this same problem and there are all kinds of suggestions but no clear root cause. I have my fingers crossed that it will be permanently resolved. Other than this issue I love the bike.
