Just joined the site and am looking forward to meeting some new friends. Picked up my Tiger 800 last year from a friend's store where it was traded with 2000 miles?! Used it to attent the first Touratech East adventure rally last July in Huntington PA as a chase rider. Just got back from a 5 day trip to MD, VA, NC, TN and GA with a bunch of Blue Ridge riders, mostly on Tigers but GSs and a lone VFR. The Tiger met all my expectations with no issues other a ripped plastic clip on the tank bag mount- certainly not the bikes fault. Replaced the oem Pirelli rear tire with a Shinko 705 adv tire and couldn't be happier. I've used everything from Michelins, Dunlops, Bridgestones but In the past 2 years I've been using Shinkos with great luck. They wear like iron, work well in all conditions and are priced right.
My experience level is that of a 70 year old who has done east coast enduros, WERA expert with a championship in the endurance series a few years back.
Over my trusty 98 VFR, the tiger is more comfortable and easier to ride in the woods and technical off road stuff.
