On my `16 XRT 32,000kms, just had Hyperpro fitted front & back, gotta admit it makes a difference, handling is much more direct, hold its line very well.

I might consider a new rear shock or fully servicing this one in the future but at the moment I'm really impressed with how the tiger handles especially after coming from my street triple.

ooohhhh aaaahhhh.
Never had a bike that clean, anytime you are in Australia, pm me.
As much beer as you can drink while you are cleaning and lubing my bike.
(ps, the beer might be cold but you will get used to it haha.)

Looking good there Jakm15.
Scrubbed up well  :047:

I would have thought the Tiger handles like a tank compared to the ST ?

I had all my suspension done at about 2000mls. Transformed the bike. But your the rider so respect your opinion of your own bikes. For the record have not ridden an ST.

We ride a lot of bumpy roads around yorkshire and to be honest the tiger rides better than my street triple on them, dont get me wrong anything over 100MPH and the street triple was better but up to that speed the tiger is just as good if not better. One of the reasons I changed to the tiger was to stop me going silly speeds as easily, I can ride slower now and just have as much fun and not risk my licence/life now.

I traded my Kawasaki Z900RS in on my 2019 XCA because I moved to an area with major bad roads. Couldn't take the rough jarring ride anymore. The Tiger rides over them in total comfort.

Totally get it guys. One of the reasons i got the Tenere ES its as smooth as you want it to be and when your pressing on you can just up the damping to compensate. i will never buy another bike without it.
