my Dad picked up a tiger 800 the other week. Seems like a pretty fun bike. The seat is so soft and comfy compared my streety.

Neither, BMW F700GS :P

I was looking at the Tigers until I noticed that they're just as expensive as a GS, and the rear subframe is welded on.
I'm also slightly too short for the Tigers and for the F800GS

So anyone who owns a Tiger, I hope you don't let it fall over too much!

While I agree the BMWs really are the better option for mid size adventure bikes I don't agree about the sub-frame even being part of the equation. The only bikes I see bend rear subframes regularly are heavy touring bikes and sport bikes with aluminum subframes. The Tiger has a very heavy duty steel subframe. If you bend it you were either rear ended by a car or you threw it off a cliff. In any case the rear subframe is going to be the least of your worries.

I Demo rode the 1200 a few weeks back didn't like the bigger tire in the front and would put more of a street tire on and change out those foot pegs on the 800 when the wife gives me the o.k. to pull the trigger. Honey I love you more then you know...She is a keeper.

Maybe not enough power(high end) for you, but a DR650 sounds like the bike you're looking for. Couldn't believe how much fun it was to bomb around town and down the dirt roads.

I have a tiger 2013 800xc along with a 13 street triple, and a 13 bmw k1600gtl. They are all purpose built for different things and they all in my opinion do them very well.

I sold my klr650 for the tiger. If anyone has ridden a klr you know how much power it doesnt have. So the step up to the tiger is awesome. I just did an 800 mile trip to my property in ga. I hauled 50lb bags of corn on it out to my shooting lanes. Tore up the back roads. And road the trails on my property. For me the tiger 800xc is everything I could ask for. Its a great fun bike that is very comfortable on the long haul.

I'd go 800. For a bike with off-road capability, it's better to keep weight low.


I also ride a F800GS - which probably means I'm bias.
