Hello to all! I might be looking at a DS bike. I want to find out about the Tiger. I sure this forum will help.

Well  :401: from a fellow Minnesotan - you will find all the information you need to make your decision right here on this forum.  I could save you some time and recommend a test ride...

I've had really good experiences with Belle Plaine Sports - so there's my other valuable recommendation.  Top shop that one.

Let us know how you progress!  And don't hesitate to ask any question.

I think of the Tiger as much more of a sport tour than a real dual-sport (some may not agree). I love this bike but if real dirt riding is what is in your mind there are better options.
Cheers,
Neil

 :401: calinmn. While some have used it off-road, the Tiger isn't really a dual-sport machine. If you definitely intend doing a lot of bush-bashing, I think you should look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you mostly intend to tour/commute/thrash through the twisties and generally have fun on the roads, well, look no further.
