As is the custom, greetings from a new member, a notional glass raise and offer of a notional drink to you all 🍻🍷🍹.
Hadn't ridden since I was 17 and at 50 decided to get back in the saddle.
Got the DAS done and test rode everything, fell for the Tiger 800.
Picked up a 2015 XCX that had just had the big service and checks.
Looking forward to joining some of my mates on some jaunts around the UK and visiting some friends abroad.

Hello mate
I did exactly the same as you; back in the saddle at 50, however, that was 16 years ago...!
Would suggest that you do a bit of refresher training; itll be worth it.
Oh, and by the way, you know thats not the fastest colour for an XC...!
Take care
Geoff

Welcome to the world of Triumph.
As previously mentioned, White is not the fastest colour. However it is the better of the colours available.
Your bike looks lovely, treat her well and shell look after you.
Always nice to have another Essex Tiger on board.
