Hello from MO
« on: August 20, 2019, 01:05:17 AM »
Retired in February, 2018. Have a few friends who ride, but hadn't been on a bike since I was a teenager. Bought a 2013 Suzuki DR650 in November 2018, and rode the poop out of it. Had a lot of fun and good rides, but wanted something a little more road-friendly for longer adventures. Well, I made a trip to Eurotek in OKC back on the 5th of this month, and traded the mighty DR for a 2016 Tiger 800 XCA. Only managed about 100 miles on the Tiger so far, but very pleased with it. Definitely a lot more "planted" on the asphalt, and seems plenty nimble for the county roads and forest trails I ride. Having a blast!

 Welcome to the club from the same side of the pond! Great minds think alike, I'm on my 2nd DR650 and love it. Over 100,000 miles between the two of them. I like a second bike which is a little better for the road and distance, hence the Tiger 800. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.
