Having started off in the Dual-Sport world on a 2009 KLR650 and later a Suzuki V-strom 650, I discovered the Triumph Tiger 800XC! This gave me the balance between on road and off road I was looking for and has a wonderful three cylinder motor! I have taken this Tiger throughout the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, through the Ozarks of Arkansas, and around the Smokies and loved every minute of it! With a good set of knobbies, the Tiger will take me places beyond my riding ability! Current favorite is Karoo 3 tires, front & back!
