2014 Tiger 800 on 176,000 miles
« on: July 07, 2020, 08:20:16 PM »
I havent been on for a while as Ive been out riding. My 2014 Tiger 800 has now passed 176,000 miles.
I've ridden it all over Europe and and taken it to the USA twice. It's still going strong and I'm happy to ride it anywhere.
Last saturday I rode it 1000 miles again in 24hrs which should be verified as an Iron Butt Association Saddlesore 1000.
I'm also a Bike Shed volunteer delivering NHS PPE.
I have committed to get the Tiger past 200,000 miles in 2020 to raise money for Children's hospice South West who provide end of life care for children. It has been made more difficult with the lock down but I have not given up yet. 24,000 miles in 5 months should be doable.Last time I went to the USA in for the 2017 Iron Butt Rally I rode 15,000 miles in 5 weeks!!!  :001:

Yes I'm planning on coming to Germany in 2021. Sent an email to book. I'll post on the thread once it's confirmed. I hope there are rooms left.  :034:

Triumph have no interest despite talking to them at shows and sending data on repairs/costs etc

Motorcycle news and bike magazine have used my story a few times over the years.
