Great day to be alive and riding a Tiger.
« on: May 22, 2019, 06:06:58 AM »
Tuesday was a wonderful spring day for a ride in down state NY. I had a leisurely ride through Harriman Park, about 50 miles north of Times Square. Temp was about 70 F and sunny. I usually ride with friends but no one could join me so I went by myself, a pleasant experience. No one to answer to just go where you feel like at your own pace. Here are some pics.

Hey Chico,
Some pretty amazing views there! Out of interest, what seat is that you have. Looks very comfortable.

Yes the views are wonderful, NY has a very diverse topography, most of the state doesn't look like what most people  see in pictures.
The seat is made by Corbin, it used to reside on my 2011 Roady and it fits perfectly on the XRX. Hard at first but very supportive after break-in.

No problem with the looks, but at todays 657 starting base price it would need to be damn well bed mattress comfortable to justify that cost (for me).
