G'dat From Australia
« on: August 05, 2020, 05:24:28 AM »
Hi Tiger fans,

I'm Peter from Adelaide Australia.  I've owned a Tiger 800 XCa for two years.  I also have a Yamaha FJR1300 and 2 Yamaha XJR1300's.  I love them all.



I do quite a bit of touring around Australia and the occasional trip in Asia.  I'm looking forward to the world achieving some sort of normality so that we can start travelling again.

I look forward to chatting with you all.  In the meantime, I'm going to start reading the forum.

Cheers AdelaidePete

Hi &  :401: I had a shock when I sore your handle as my wife has a cousin in Salisbury, Adelaide goes by the name of Pete!!!!! But I think at 80+ years of age it might be a tad late to start biking.......although I wouldn't put it past him.

Anyway enjoy your Tiger.  :418: :152: :031:

Welcome from my 5km radius prison on Melbourne.
2 x pi x radius = circumference. So, 2 x 3.14 x 5km = 31.4 km.
And, with the hour limit and a generous 60 km/hr you can get 2 laps in.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

31.4km x 2 laps per day x 42 days equals 2637.6km. That is 8 tanks of fuel!
My bike still has the fuel in it that was put in April.
