greeting from the isle of wight
« on: October 16, 2020, 03:47:47 PM »
hi thanks for having me along, just sold my tracer900 and will b getting the tiger 800 as replacement, the tracer was great but as a bike thats used it the main for 2 up touring it wasnt up to the job, max load was crap with me and the wife we were already close to the limit, yes im a big lad :001: also yamaha say dont use top box and panniers together so how can it be sold as a touring bike? anyway ive seen a very nice xrx for sale so hope to be a tiger owner soon, ive had a couple of triples in my younger days so i know how good they are,  :125:

hi yes i have many times before it was even thought of, one of my favourite rides on the island, try to avoid it now so the moaning old gits cant complain about speeding motorbikes to the local council etc and jepordise any chance of the dream becoming real,
