Looks like a giant next to my HD....

Once you get used to taking your streetbike anywhere you want in total comfort, as opposed to putting back and forth to the bar with your feet sticking way out in front of you , I bet the Hardley will be for sale.

ADV bikes are great, even if you never go off road. They have realistic ergo's. I have been on them for over ten years. I did miss the raw powe from my sportbike days so I got this three years ago....love it Photo

Nice Katoom there!


Love my Springer "bar hopper". Despite it's looks, it's actually pretty comfortable. But yeah, the comfort level and performance/braking/handling is on a ridiculously different level with the Tiger. That said, the HD is the bike I want to have when I reach my destination. It's just so cool.

@GT80Rider - yes, those stock tires got a little squirrley off road yesterday. I'll wear em out and go with something a little more dual-purpose'ish eventually.

My wife laughed at me when I came home from that ride yesterday with a big stupid grin on my face.

I actually bought a 450 SXf FE just so i could justify a 790 Adventure R Rally in the future!

Sounds like a great idea to me. Gotta get used to the bike first....and yeah...more dirt-able tires.

Nice bike BTW!

Thanks! You as well.

What size tires does she run? I’ve been picking up some take off TKC-80s for my bike for 100-120, most budget friendly and a good 60/40 dirt tire.

Nice ride! I own a 68 RS/SS as well, but mine has been in a project state for the 35 years that I have owned it. Yours makes me want to get mine done! Thank you for the motivation!
Congrats on the new ride as well!

Nice bike! Been wondering how the new tigers are. I still have my 2012 Tiger 800XC. I use mine for street touring and don't really take it offroad. 500lbs is a little much in the dirt. Madstad windscreen makes a huge difference in wind noise and turbulence near the helmet.

We need a "multi-quote" feature...lol.



@YZDAD - Post up pics if you get a chance...

@NascarNate - No idea on the 35th...that photo was taken back in 2003/2004ish during a car show on San Diego bay. I would wager it's a T56...who in their right mind would buy a modern camaro with an automatic! (unless it's someone with some kind of disability/challege)

@ NorCalVet - WOW.....absolutely stunning 69 Z!! Houndstooth is the most beautiful interior of all time IMO. Looks like it's numbers matching car.

Nice!

I've always been drawn to the Tigers and the 800's (from what I've read) are so highly regarded.

I was actually close to going with a new 2019 800....but the Showa suspension and new Brembo brakes is what pushed me over the fence to the 900.

I actually prefer the engine music the 800 makes....they changed the firing order on the 900. Same HP...but more torque. I have not been able to find one bad review on the 900.

What tires do you use?

I’m gonna have to request that you move it farther away from the Camaro.

Why? I don’t trust you...your gonna scratch my car when you swing your leg over that huge ADV scooter. That’ll REALLY piss me off!!

I love that car.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Check out the Mitas E07s, great 50/50 tire with much better on road feel than the TKC 80s.

It'll be Thai built. They've changed their plan a bit and have moved nearly all production to Thailand, and it seems like eventually no assembly will be done in the UK. They're planning on moving all the UK assembly line machinery to Thailand if I recall correctly, and replacing it with a new design office.

I might know your mate - I worked there until last November, and sat next to the team who did this bike smile

@Indian_Dunes_4ever I'm stoked to see you enjoying the bike - I saw a lot of the effort that went into designing it first hand!
