new guy from iowa

hello, i picked up an '01 tiger 955i at Struthers in Des Moines last week and must say that i am smitten!! the bike just turned over 26k miles and other than a minor scuff on the right side bag and a minor repair on the pillion the bike is flawless. yesterday i put a set of 2" rox risers on her and am awaiting the arrival of a pair of buell pegs that a bud from the klr forum sent me, his moniker on the klr forum is dirtdreamer50, tomp. he recommended this site as he had a 1050 tiger for a while...
i love the bike but i've got to make it a bit roomier, i'm 6'5" and 280lbs so if there are any other bigger guys out there with advice i'm all ears!
