Hi all,

Just returned to biking after an 15 year enforced absence due to kids etc.  Purchased a very fresh 2014 Tiger 800 XC with 8K miles from a large dealer in Macclesfield about a month ago. Spent a miserable freezing snowy and wonderful 2 hour drive back to Holyhead in hand-me-down non waterproof gear now replaced with new proper gear.


Looking forward to getting great advice on this rather good forum.


Regards,


veetwin (handle from a previous life)

Dublin is/was the pale (where the"civilised" lived). Outside was for everyone else  :002:
