liked this shot from a copy of the Feb '94 Fast Bikes magazine which I recently picked-up... there was  a group test with the Tiger, Africa Twin and Guzzi Quota, with the AT being their preference for any off road, but rated the Tiger for touring.. having said that, the tester did manage to bin the AT whilst jumping it for the camera  :D

Any chance of scanning the pages relating to the test?  Would love to read the article.

Couple pics from a dirt ride this weekend:

Lots of water in this section, but a lot of fun because the bikes in front showed me the fun line:



HUGE water hole...swamped a 640 that tried the middle, unfortunately, going around the side had some big hidden rocks in the muddy water.  Drop #1 on the day:

For a brief moment I thought my little girl was going to crush me up against that little tree:


Well don't just lie there like that, get up!


On my way again:




2 drops on the day, no damage.  Just a lot of fun.   :thumbsup

lol...you need a hobby, dude.  I just wish it was a new 800 I was doing it to!

A couple guys had video cameras going...really shows what a lame section I dropped it on.  I knew there was a rock there from seeing others try it - think I must have psyched myself out on it, though.  Happened several times during the day - see a hard section and someone else struggling with it, then I'd freak out thinking it was tough but breeze through it (sort of).  Visualize success...work your own line...don't focus on their failure... :oops:

Tiger is right at the end:

The problem with a big bike like that is once she starts to go, it is pretty tough to keep her upright.  That is a lot of weight to try and catch.  That said, BRAVO for making it through there! :D
