I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

The top box is plastic, just like a Pelican case.  The bolts are justy attempt at extra tie down points.  As usually I over did it. :ImaPoser

Are those still your first set of Kenda knobbies?  If so, they are holding up better than mine did.

Yes these are the same Kenda's. Working on about a thousand miles on them. Most road miles.  Still a lot if knob left. Good grip in the dirt and mud. Feel nice and solid in the turns on the road.

I got about 1000 miles out of my rear tire as well.  It hooked up good, just didn't last as long as I hoped.  Great photos, BTW. :D

This was a short ride. About a 15 mile run up into the hills, then about 8 miles of dirt and back home.  Just a short break to feed the addiction. :headbang  :5moped

This was a section of Doe Mill Rd off of Schott Rd which is off Hwy 32 about 4 miles east of Forest Ranch.

When we're you here? There's lots of good logging roads to ride up here as well as forest service roads through national parks.  My problem comes when I go farther "off the beaten track" and start thinking the Tiger is a dirt bike! :headbang

My main aim for this was to try out the new GPS mount from Tourtech.  I got a 76CSX for my off roading and it works great.
