Tiger Loaded

Well, the VIR trip went great. I loaded the TIger and headed out. 46mpg in a 6 gallon tank meant no needs for stops. However, I stopped in front of Arnold's Diner and motorcycle shop to snap a pic.

The road gear bag did great with the stock panniers. Still liking the Idea of the OEM top box, but $600 is steep.

And then forget to put some kind of protective coating on them so i can have an engine full of rusty bolts?

I will say that he has a distinct advantage over me in the ground clearance department. It was all tip-toes on the Tiger, whereas, I can almost flatfoot the Strom if it is loaded.

I can't believe how much you fit on that bike! Even the blender made it.
