Scram865 a newbie from Oz
« on: March 03, 2019, 04:10:19 AM »
 Pick up my 2nd 1st generation XC 800 tommorrow, my 1st tiger covered 25000ks before losing a fight with a roo and ripping the left passenger footpeg off about 4yrs ago. After countless hours researching multicylinder adv bikes over the years i've come back to another tiger! Can't wait to kit this one out even better than the 1st.

Hi Scram865 and welcome to the forum.
Can you fit roo bars to a tigger?

Welcome to the Tiger fun factory Scram865!

That red Tiger looks awesome!  You're gonna love it even more than your first one for sure.

What part of Oz are you in?

Cheers...Tony

That first pic looks like Bob's Lookout on the Mulligan, so I'm guessing FNQ?
Cheers,

Must be something to do with White Tigers. My "14 model white Roadie had the same Kangaroo problem at about 14,000 km.  :001:

Welcome. Hope this one lasts as well as my second one is doing.
