Hi guys,

Just got back home safe from the meeting!

Always good to come home and look back at a great Tiger meeting!!
It was very good meeting a lot of you, and the great atmosphere was brilliant!
So good to meet a lot of you for real, I wish there was more time to talk to all of you..

Anyway, my friend Cees and I had a brilliant time!!
Thanks to all of you and a special thanks to the people organizing this meeting! Great job!!
I came close to a 1000 mile trip, the count stopped for me at 1587,3 km's....

Now it is time for me to gather al of you guys' pictures and videos and make a great movie about it...
Most motorcyle problems are caused by the nut connecting the saddle to the handlebars..

Home safe and sound Sunday lunchtime. Great couple of days and thanks for all the effort put in by the organisers.
I thought the crap weather made the rideout that much more of a challenge and didn't dampen the spirit of the day.
Washing bike on Sunday afternoon and it tipped over as I was putting it on centre stand. Thank god for the terrific Barkbuster handguard that took the full weight of the bike so I got away with just the smallest scratch on the handguard and nothing else.
Would have been hundreds of poundsworth if that had happened to my old Sprint 1050!!
