Howzit from a Zimbo now living in Dorset, UK
« on: January 14, 2021, 06:37:35 PM »
Hi everyone, I am new on here but not new to bikes. Grew up riding enduro bikes (many types) in Zimbabwe and had use of a Yamaha XJ 750 for some road fun in the mid 80's. Got my full UK bike licence 5 years ago but only just got a Tiger 800 XCA 2017 with very low mileage in early Nov '21 after much research and test rides of the best bike for my needs. Have had over 1000 miles of fantastic winter riding already. However first thing I did was change that awful stock screen with a givi airflow, best money I have ever spent! Looking forward to learning lots from you guys, every bike comes with issues and what a pleasure to have such a huge archive of advice on here! I am fortunate my bike came with adventure full luggage which has already been put to good use. I will be exploring far and wide when this Covid thing allows. Take care out there, cheers for now  :002:

Hi and :401:

There has just been a May forum Megameet (was around 30'ish of us) based around Frankfurt postponed, but possibly moving to September if things start to get better if interested.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!
