I finally got to see these bikes. The local dealer has one each; a white 800XC and a black 800. The design is remarkable; these are the most elemental and efficient bikes I think I've ever seen, save perhaps a Monster. There isn't one thing on the bike that doesn't have to be there; and what is there is as simple and straightforward as it can be.

Unfortunately they don't have a demo bike yet, just the two for sale. But they will soon, and when it arrives, I will ride it!

Fun Facts to Know and Tell!

Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.

Its.......A FACT!

And we'll be taking the Tiger on a 2-day ride in early June, and we're anxious to try it out!
