    I’d love to ride the Tiger Sport 660 and the Tiger 850 Sport side by side for comparison.

    I would agree with this tbh

    1 commuter/around town bike that can handle twisties decently, 1 offroad oriented that can still cruise highways so I don't have to trailer it, and 1 track oriented and/or dedicated would be my sweet spot.

    I've got the commuter down...

    Agreed. I have several stretches on the freeway home where the sides open up to a small valley or lagoon, with the coast just on the other side where you can see the sunset perfectly.

    Time for new tires and I’ve been eyeing the Michelin Anakee Wilds but they are sold out and back ordered so meh, guess I’ll stick with the Anakee adventures but them sold out as well. Going with some Dunlop Trailmax Mission m’s and I guess Dunlop rates them as a 50/50 tire but people say it’s more 70/30.

    MoD has a set they are holding for me and I’ll get them installed on Saturday after I get back from FL.

    That's what I have spooned on currently. Long life, good grip, good rain grip, good on-road manners. I'm a fan. I'd agree with the 70on/30off. They have some CHONKY lugs, super deep, but also super wide/large surface area for the lugs. Great for gravel roads, not so great on mud/sand.

    Edit: of the tires I've tried, I'd rate Trailmax Mission > Motoz Tractionator > K60 scout

    I was looking those for the Tiger for when I need to buy. If you get them, please report back. I still have a bit of life on the Tourance that came on it when I bought. It is used. Not sure if the previous owner put the factory ones back on or bought a second pair for the bike.

    Anakee Wilds are in stock on Rocky Mountain, Id bet you could order them to be delivered there. (or you can order to my house, and Ill drive them over for you)

    I got 500 miles of good riding in while in Hawaii and now I’m headed home to below freezing and snow.

    I hope you're like me where you get something and are like, man, this is a really good box, I'm saving this for the next time I need to fab something or make a template. I have 3 or 4 stashed in the garage at all times usually :rofl:

    CAD all day. I bought a roll of RamBoard a long time ago at Lowes and that’s what I use now. easy to cut and bend/shape and it holds up after repeated use.

    The Anakee Adventure tires have great life, I’m up to 11,000 on this set with a mm or two before the wear indicator
