Hi all

Just a quick message to introduce myself.

The biking bug bit me again after over 30 years away from them at the end of last year after riding my brothers Harley Sportster.

After lots of research and trolling the internet I came across a 2014 Tiger 800 ABS at a Triumph Dealership in West Sussex. Took it for a test ride and picked it up last Thursday.

I took a leisurely...ish ride home to Kingswood from the dealership and after riding 60 odd miles of A and B roads also the M25 all I can say is I've been beaming like a Cheshire cat for the past 3 days.

If that ride was anything to go by I think I'm gonna have the stupid grin on my face for a very long time.

Thanks for the welcome guys  :031:

Riding my Tiger is like sitting in a comfy armchair compared to the Sportster but it planted the biking seed in my brain  :002:
