Hi from Holland!
« on: March 15, 2019, 08:43:40 AM »
Hi all,

I bought a "pre-owned" 2018 800 XCx yesterday (picking it up tomorrow)! Why the Tiger 800? Well... I read a whole lot of very positive reviews about it, and figured it must be a smoother ride than my KTM 990 Adventure. So, took one for a test drive yesterday and boy is that Tiger a smooth beast! Bought it on the spot...

Looking forward to absorbing lots of info on the bike; being 2 meters tall I'll have some customizing to do...

Best regards,
Gleekzorp

i certainly agree in that respect - the surface of the road is WAY better over there!
