South East UK Traveling / Touring Companions
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:09:01 AM »
As per the title really. Are there any others in the SE who are interested in meeting up for a few rides and possible touring trips  :261:

I live in East Kent and have over the last few years (after retiring early) lost touch with pretty much all my old riding buddies :138: So I find myself looking for other like minded riders wanting to meet up  :152:
It would be good to hear from any members who are "relatively" local who fancy getting together for some riding in the Garden of England and sharing a couple of beers  :031:

I've ridden to many places in Europe and covered a good number of miles abroad, and would love to travel again, especially when the better weather arrives and we all get through this nightmare of a pandemic  :157:

My days of camping are over so it would definitely be cheap B&B's and hotels, if you fancy a short or longer trip away somewhere we could put something together, what's on your bucket list of places to ride :017:

This is obviously an early days post, as we all need to be safe to travel (and be allowed to travel  :084:) but it would be good to know if we have any other Tiger riders wanting the same experience   :169:

you might be interested in this https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/board,84.0.html, I am sure you'll find buddies for the way to and from.

You might find this interesting, rides most week ends and quite a few Euro tours as well. Plenty of Tiger owners to chat to.

Nobody is riding at present though due to Covid and I suspect it will only be small groups initially as lockdown gradually eases.

Thanks for all the messages.

Derchef1962 - I have attended a couple of the megameets, one in the West country (I think it was the second one) and the one in Norfolk. Had a great time at both and hope to attend more as and when. I met some wonderful people and have even toured with a few but unfortunately I don't remember anyone living down in this neck of the woods.

Steve - Would love to get together again when we can get out and about, I'll contact you  :028:

pemcer - Thanks for the info, but probably a bit far for the occasional ride out  :084:

Paulhere - Thanks for the info on the Triumph Owners club, I'll certainly be contacting them in the near future  :169:

I've just been looking at some photos & videos from the Austria 2014 TigerTour. Remember cheescake-gate?  :164:  :492:

I don't know what you're talking about  :164:
But if it has anything to do with a pretty Austrian lady spoon feeding me whilst wearing a low cut national costume I'll deny all knowledge   :084:  :005:  :192:

What a fantastic trip that was, and will always stay in my heart as one of the best tours I've been on  :152:
