Just recieved delivery of my Tiger 800 XRT 2018
« on: August 09, 2020, 09:06:54 AM »
Good morning all

My name is Kris. I just took delivery of my new (to me) bike last night.  I pretty stoked, it's a thing of beauty to me and my first big bike.

I'm looking forward to seeing the country and county I live in in a different way.  I live in Cornwall and have a few friends that ride so I will be joining them.

Anyway I thought I would just drop by and say hello, I will most likely being asking a lot of questions.

Cheers Kris

What a day, this bike is just so fun to ride, nice and smooth lots of power if needed but in the twisties it just came in to its own.  One bad note, the OEM screen is just awful, I tried every setting and it was just horrible.  I'm 5'11" and the seat is on the low setting because I have short legs and a long body.  So I will be looking for a new screen which I accidently mentioned to my wife and she looked like thunder.  The back tyre is also squared off and I could feel it negatively impacting o the ride, it's the original tyre from new so that (I guess replace in pairs, front too) will also have to go, a few quid going out of my pocket already.
