I love the Tiger - and I did go for the Onroad because I reach the ground better with my feets (the XC is somewhat higher).
No real problems so far - there are a few things you should know:
- if you do river crossings, clean up the ABS sensors afterwards - otherwise they might stop you automatically - I had some sand on them and they where distracted - nothing bad happens then - you just slow down slowly and automatic - after you cleaned them (one screw each) everything is fine.
- there is not a big selection of tires available for the onroad - if you like to have tires for street and dirt you may have to change to different sizes (like I did with the Bridgestones)
The only other thing I had so far was braking down of the Garmin Charger (nothing to do with the Tiger), tow indicators had been ripped off on the pasage from Panama to Columbia on the boat (also nothing to to with the Tiger /Edith - now it turned out that the indicators on the front right and rear left have a material flaw and break very easy - so this is a Triumph issue! /Edith
) and last but not least the rear tire is loosing some air every day (maybe thru the different size - or it is not sitting tight any more after going through all this holes in the roads - have to figure it out)
On the other hand - the engine is a motorbikers dream, the suspension even on the onroad Tiger is great, and the frame is stable that you think the bike does run on rails and not on bumpy streets.
The tank has a decent size and is good for over 300 kilometres (did up to 400) and with that much horsepower the bike has you have no troubles in overtaking.
I have the Hepco Becker Gobi boxes fitted on - that is enough space for everything.
As I said - I love the bike
