Went on my first decent run on my Tiger 800 last Friday from my home in Hampshire to a memorial service in Barnstaple.  It was very cold that day, particularly the first part, and my feet were like blocks of ice on arrival.

The only problem was that I had gone on the wrong day!  Still, the sun was shining and after a quick coffee and burger I made the return leg of the 360 miles round trip and arrived home with feeling in my feet.

Although not having the range of heat settings as my Honda, I found the two stage heated grips adequate and with my recently fitted Madstad screen the trip was enjoyable.  The ride proved that the Tiger has the attributes of A good tourer and a worthy, and much lighter, successor to my ST1300 on which I have been touring for 14 years.

So envious of your wide open space.  Our little island is a little more densely populated!

First ride out since Greg's funeral so an early morning blast around Dartmoor was in order. It was foggy and damp near the coast but Dartmoor was bathed in stunning sunshine and the roads were quiet.  :152:

Took the Tiger out of hibernation, rode to the butchers in Melton to get some sausage rolls! As sign outside says there the best around! Also meant it was a 100 mile round trip.......really missed riding the bike!!!
