Title: Where did you go on your Tiger today?
Post by: Admin on March 31, 2013, 11:44:55 AM
This topic is for posting brief details of your day trips/ride outs and basically where you went on your bike.

By all means post some pics if you have some.

Details about big trips and tours should be posted in a separate dedicated topic in the Tiger Tails (https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/board,39.0.html)  section  :016:

Great weather for Easter makes a change as usually wet here.  Coaxed my son-in-law to get out and about and did a quick run through Bunya Rd then down through Clear mountain and out to Dayboro then up Mt Mee for a coffee at the "Pit Stop" café.  Enjoyed the view over the Brisbane valley then a quick run back down Mt Mee and around through Petrie to Bullocky rest and back through Samford to home.  Brilliant clear day and gave the Tiger it's first decent run since getting back from Phillip Island.

Picked up Tiger last night after 12k service and today had a ride up the Northumberland Coastal Route to Seahouses and had fish n chips for lunch--yum, lovely warm sunny day, the first time I have been warm on a bike for months

First ride out with newly installed Madstad screen and yes its certainly true--what a difference -- no buffeting and I have not really tried set it up yet, heard a unfamiliar noise at 70-80 mph it was the engine, first time I have heard it at that speed. I am now a Madstad fan

After commuting every day this week (and most of the days this winter) then getting slightly lost on my way back from Bath yesterday and doing 100 lovely miles through the Cotswolds, today I did nothing. Just watched all the fair weather bikers out for the first time this year. And boy were there a lot of them!

Dont have a tiger yet, but did a testdrive on a roadie today. When i arrived at the triumph dealer i already had been touring that day on my 1998 vfr (about 400km). I was amazed that the tiger felt so familiar to me, but i was even more amazed when i hopped back onto my vfr: i had to get used to it again :s

I want one. Badly  :020:

At last a nice day in the Southern UK. Not too cold, as it has been uncommonly bitter this last few months, so with some nice hazy sunshine took the wife out for a leisurely ride. Stopped off in a small village for lovely pint of English real ale, what could be better than that? Ok, so I did end up doing sixty extra miles than planned, but it has been a long long winter over here.

Ran over to a local state forest (Pike State Forest in Ohio) as well as some good on road riding. Sorry, no photos of the on road section. Started off cold in the morning, about 35 F then got up to 70 F during the day, was beautiful:

First long run of the year, went down to Gloucester for the weekend with group of friends and partner riding pillion, motorway down to Leicester then fossway and a few pretty roads then met up with other friends from that area
Had a run around the Cotswolds on Saturday, lovely day spectacular scenery/villages sunny and a lot warmer, nice ride out but good twisties seem to be pretty rare in that area
Then back up Northwards on Sunday off the M6 at the Lakes then up through Brough/Stanhope where the snow was still 10ft high in places by the side of the road on the moors
Felt very privileged to have roads like that on my door step and I am only a few miles from Northumberland  and a few more from the Borders
Tiger performed faultlesly-------Happy days, roll on summer  :002:

My wife hopped on the back seat and we went for a spin down to Rye in Sussex for her first try at pillion on the Tiger.   The weather was rubbish down there (was sunny at home) but there seemed to be a biker's meeting place on the sea front with about 30 bikes there so we stopped for a coffee.

There's some lovely roads down that way, the route back home was up to Tenterden, and on to Goudhurst and home (Tonbridge) from there.   There was very little traffic, and some really nice riding through glorious countryside and very pretty old Kentish towns - real chocolate-box places.

Luckily, she's a natural at being pillion, you'd hardly know she was there apart from two arms round your waist!

Finally got 500 miles on the clock ! To be honest, I've mainly been using my Transalp over the winter (had a great tour of the Netherlands last week) but decided that, as the road salt had gone, it was time to get the Tiger out for a weekend run. Very nice, very smooth, very comfortable etc etc  :001:

Sunday took the Tiger on the run to the Shropshire Bike show.  Show was ok the run out was really good we met up at the Shrewsbury P & R where we made our way to RAF Cosford, never seen that many bikes or heard noise like it as we waited to leave.  All types of bike although didn't see any other Tigers but they may have been lurking. First time on a motorway for me and no problems.  The police had blocked off the way so we didn't stop at junctions and traffic lights, they'd even blocked the slip roads on the motorway really good trip it was estimated about a thousand bike left Shrewsbury, at least it's added a few more miles and let it have a run due it's 500 mile service want to get it done asap as it's on a recall for it's indicators so want o combine the two.  :002:

The ride was excellent, but the stock screen nearly killed me.  I'm now deaf as a post, and that's with molded earplugs. I can feel a Madstad coming on.

Just a Q, what do you think of the Scorpion tyres in the wet? I wasn't pushing it in the corners, in fact I was a bit 'gingerly' on entry.  I'm used to the Pilot Road IIIs

Friday 26 April
This is B roads and green lanes. Out of Chabanais towards Rochechouart then towards Montembouf and on to Montron.  A bit of a chill-out in a cafe on the square in glorious sunshine.  By the way testing my new Rukka suit without the lining to get a feel for how much clothing is required under different contidions.  So, today a T-shirt underneath is perfect.  Rode then to St Mathiue and towards Rochechouart and some serious twisties which were great accept for a heart stopping moment, but hey it makes you a better rider when you don't get hurt.  Green laned to Pressignac and back in through farm lanes.

All in all bloody marvellous can beat it wonderful, wonderful and XC is moving well.   

Sunday 28th April

A repeat of the above under different weather conditions.  Suit definitely requires either inner jacket or proper base layers.  But the ride was and always is wonderful; wind, rain, sunshine, I draw the line at snow.

Just road to work but saw the most hilarious thing ever. Some scrotey t**t on a 50cc scooter with what looked like an MTC exhaust, modified (read.....duck taped) to fit his scooter.

Nearly fell off the bike laughing!!

I rode up to Kinlochleven for the pre65 trial which is on Fri & Sat the last bit over Rannoch & down Glencoe was rather damp & its forecast to be worse tomorrow  :232: but it will hopefully get better after that :047:

Tiger went in for 6000 mile service, centre stand & indicator recalls.
Had a loan bike of the new 675 speed triple, hated the hard seat, mirrors and the total lack of any fairing, oh but what a bike, left me grinning like a Cheshire cat, I thought the tigers 800 motor was good but the 675 was ever better. Try one you will like it!!!!!!

I'm waiting for the local dealer to get a few miles on the Tiger Sport and use it as a demonstrator.
Will be down there like a shot to try it.

Im sure i couldn't justify PX'ing (or should I say my wife........)

Well 2 years after passing my test and 3 weeks of Tiger ownership today was the day that I took the Wife out on the back of the bike; her first ever pillion ride!!!! (She is used to being on back of our tamdem so I wasn't too worried)

All went well; no tears (I think I was more scared having never had a pillion before either) but it was well....like riding a bike.

I have to say the Tiger was great and barely felt any different although I must admit I did take it gently. Must have been good as it was can we go out on Tuesday on your day off!

Just one thing can anyone point me direction of a non-slip cover or material for the pillion seat as she did say she was slipping around a bit?  :015:

It is a Bags Connection City, the 12v version.
It gets the 12v thru the tank ring.
I have an iPad mini (running Forever Maps) on top that takes its power from the tankbag's 12v circuit.
That way I just have to take the bag of, no cables etc.

I didn't want a too big or too small bag, so the City fitted my needs.
It feeds the iPad and I can charge a GoPro battery within the bag.

Great footage Hachon, in your opinion which was the best bike for those conditions?
Title: Re: Where did you go on your Tiger today?
Post by: Hachon on May 15, 2013, 11:07:44 AM
I think all the bikes perforamance was good/bad, and if the two other drivers are much more experienced than me.
But the GS might be the best bike, regarding he was almost riding on slicks with only in the middle and on the sides.

And the other thing is that I'm just 173 cm tall, and the other guys were ranging from 180-200 cm, so my short legs make it more difficult to stop in some terrain (as you see).

I really enjoy driving the Tiger, but I feel sometimes it's a little too top heavy for me, at least under those conditions, but I really love the power and being able to really be a dual purpose-bike.

Next time I'll buy a new bike I think I'll  might test out the KTM 690 Enduro, as I really love driving in difficult terrain, and then the Tiger seems a bit too heavy for me.

Ran up the M9 then cut across to Doune. Then up thro' Callander,Strathyre etc. to Tyndrum then across Rannoch Moor to Glencoe then North Ballachulish. Then to the reason for going out on the bike, a clockwise run round Loch Leven (is it possible to get bored of this road? hmmmmm, doubt it). Then back down the way I went up. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do it anti-clockwise sometime soon. And NO RAIN!(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i1260.photobucket.com/albums/ii571/kc1961/bike010.jpg) (http://s1260.photobucket.com/user/kc1961/media/bike010.jpg.html)

Had a good ride out to scarborough with the father in law and his mates, they were all on 1200GS's really put the new arrow can and map through its paces and I must say that it defiantly seems a little more responsive and a slight power difference.

Rode to Canberra for a 'Stay Upright' course.  This involves a great ride up some twisties to the top of the escarpment, then wooded lanes etc before breaking out into open ground for the last sixty or seventy miles into Canberra - open roads with hardly any traffic.   Bloody cold though...10C at the coast (where I live) but down to -4C on the morning I arrived.  (Heated grips are now on order!).  Back to home a different way around - stopped for a couple of photos, one of which is attached - Tiger in Ghost Gums.   About 350 miles all up over two days, so really great.  Gotta love this bike...

Having fitted a Madstad 20" screen and had a gel insert fitted by Les at Seatman in South Shields I went over the watch the NW 200 last week end.
The ride down from Edinburgh to Cairnryan and the trip back were both great but the bit in the middle was a bit of disaster as the racing was abandoned because of the very heavy rain.
The screen and the seat both made a huge improvement to the riding experiance and on the way back I took the foot rest rubbers off and this made another big difference to the comfort on the bike.
My next long trip is away to Germany in August and I am thinking of fitting an Arrow slicencer and getting the Triumph Panniers but not sure if the results will justify the expense.
Might just sick with the standard silencer and the Oxford Throwover bags that I have used for the last 10 years.

Coming out at Ok Falls and continuing down Hwy 97S to Oliver where I again headed east towards the Mt. Baldy ski area.

Once back on the pavement it is a steep run down Anarchist Mtn. into Osoyoos.

Had a nice Little run out to MATLOCK BATH with a few mates and Brian on his TL 1000 was impressed with the way the tiger handled as every time he looked in his mirrors I was there and he`s thinking about one but a roadie not the XC like I have. And I must admit I put a pair of FULL BORE USA`s on yesterday and thought I'd gently scrub them in but the way they handle impressed me enough to keep up with him and he doesn't`t hang around, not bad for £ 104 for the pair.

Nice day Saturday so I thought I'd take the bike for a spin, only intended to be an hour or so, but one road led to another, ended up in Ludlow in a very round about way.  Called in at Church Stretton for an ice cream, i havn't bored you all with the route as unless your local it means nothing, but Shropshire has some very nice little towns Ironbridge, Ludlow ect always nice on a nice day, worth a run out sometime.  Tigers running well getting to grips with it a bit more now.

Full day ride in the mountains of the western Pyrenees. 450 km. Found every kind of weather,  from sunny valleys and 24 ºC to, just few minutes after, foggy peaks and 10ºC.

Port de Larrau 1585 mts. (Navarre - France)
(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=imageshack.us/a/img28/7231/25j4.jpg)

Boy it was foggy in the French side. Had to use my hazard flashers and the sat nav to know were te next curve was.

Col de Bagargi

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=imageshack.us/a/img69/6741/kv0k.jpg)

Col d'Arnosteguy

One of my favourite places. If you ever want to get lost, try here. I saw no one for 2 hours (except cows, horses and sheeps).

Go there, lay on the grass and relax. It's only you and the mother nature.

 :005:I did some advanced rider training, scary stuff when the instructor gets you to lock up the front end at 30 mph. Only got sideways a bit.....must admit it gives you a bit more confidence in how you can handle the bike. The Tiger handled very well, the weak link is always the rider! Did not test the crash bars - some of that was down to luck, a little bit down to me.

Bought my baby a new pair of shoes yesterday(avon distanzias), and thought a ride through the Rocky mountains was good way to scrub them in. I love it when I'm right.  :001: Rode from Calgary to Jasper, stayed the night, came back this morning. Took my time coming back, stopped here and there for breaks and pics, got home just time to see a lovely young lady   :038: enthusiastically mooning  the customers of my magazine shop whilst picking up the new classic motorcycle mechanics. total wildlife count, 2 black bears, 4 elk, 2 dozen bighorn sheep, and the afore mentioned bareassed strumpet. In lieu of pictures of the strumpet here's lovely Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. Come for the scenery, stay for the bareassed strumpets!

Rode my bike to work to support Ride to Work Day.

It's only a 20mile round trip but at least I arrived and left with a smile on my face for a change.
Took the longer way home to make the most of it.

We get free bike parking in the basement car park at work which I have only just discovered.
More trips on the bike me-thinks.

This is my first attempt at posting pictures so I will see how it goes....
Having had only the chance for small rides of around 500kms, I recently had the chance to put some kms on my 800XC, a ride from Chiang Mai in the North of Thailand to Siem Reap in Cambodia, a round trip of 2,500 kms. Most of the distance was in Thailand and once over the boarder it was a straight run to Siem Reap, the home of the famed Angkor temple complex and of course Angkor Wat.
The bike is magic and I feel that I could go on forever. A fun trip with about 20 other bikes.

Hi Max

NZ is a nice place with great roads to ride.

The E-07s are the best allround tyre that I've used on my XC by far. Check out my comments on this thread https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,8634.0.html (https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,8634.0.html) for more detail.

jealousdotcom that you two are out and about in NZ, Thailand and Cambodia on the Tigers!  Fantastic photies.  Spent time in all those countries but sadly as a traveller and not a biker - although I did "do Angkor" as a pillion for 3 days..... amazing!). 

Yesterday I did Ride to Work but it is only a 7 mile round trip....that somehow turned into 70 :016:
Won't post pics though as it wasn't the Tiger's turn to be out to play  :034:

Left West Lothian, headed to Peebles, Galashiels, St. Boswells, Kelso, Coldstream, Wooler, Rothbury, Otterburn. Back up the A68 to St. Boswells then Selkirk, Galashiels and back home the way I'd come. 237 miles, mostly sunny and NO RAIN. New record high fuel consumption of 53.4mpg. All roads in far better condition / state of repair than those in and around Central Scotland, particularly West Lothian.

Came back from a three day trip to Berlin (no motorways route)...

Could only cross the (flooded) Elbe by taking the A2 though and that added 2 riding hours to the trip caused by closed bridges and no ferry's.

Yesterday started as a hot day (34 degrees Celsius, in the shadow)
My Garmin led me through the very centre of Braunschweig at noon.
Got boiled at traffic lights.
Had to take shelter in a barn a couple of hours later, due to massive thunder and monsoon-like rain.
Had a nice chat with the farmer, stayed there one hour and got home after 12 hours of travel. And with a bit sore behind.

I'd do it again today...

Now KC1961,  that's what I call a route!!  :123:  A grand wee blast through some of the nicest scenery outside the NW Highlands.  I live in Selkirk and regularly do similar routes including some nice wee twisties over to Moffat.  If you are down my way give me a shout if you want a riding partner.   :001:

After testriding myself through most Triumphs, except the racers, this morning at the Tridays I happily find my 800 Roady to be the for me absolutely most suitable of them all.
The afternoon I jumped some 400km over several of the great Alp passes of Tyrol and Salzburg. In Kitzbühel the sky opened dramatically and so I was more swimming than riding 'home' to 'Newchurch' over the final Pass Thurn.
Tomorrow will bring the Großglockner, Stallersattel Furcia, Sella Pordoi and what I find on the way.   I hope to get till somewhere around Canazei if the weather allows it.

The TRIDAYS  by the way were absolutely great! Superb music, stuntriders, races, guided tours, also 5 hour on gravel, and masses of great people and pimped bikes.

I rode from my home south of San Francisco to Redding, CA.  The round trip was 480 miles.  I rode up there to have a new custom saddle made for me by rickmayercycle.com  The Rick Mayer saddle is made using the Tiger 800 seat pan.  Rick removes the OEM foam and cover material and replaces it with new foam and either vinyl or leather cover.  I chose vinyl. The seat is very comfortable. 

The Rick Mayer saddle looks to be similar to the Sargent saddle, but I got the Rick Mayer for only $325.  I got the returning customer discount from Rick, this is the second saddle he's made for me.  He previously made one for my Kawasaki ZR-7S.

It was yesterday...just slow about posting.

I went to North Georgia, Hiawassee to be exact, to British in the Blue Ridge motorcyle show at the Georgia Fair Grounds on Lake Hiawasse.  The weather was perfecit in the morning for the ride over through the mountains of East Tennessee (my home), North Carolina and North Georgia.  I got to see many vintage Nortons, BSA's, Triumphs and some brand I'm not familiar with.  Great show, area and weather.  I'll be back next year....Lord willing.

Just got back from a 3 day 1200 km trip on the Tiger, middle of winter here, shortest day , and the country was in the middle of a polar blast storm! Love the madstad though and bark busters which made it more comfortable.. However no heated grips so have ordered a set of oxfords as they would have made it a lot warmer! Got down to zero Celsius at one point.

testing for a fault that has developed on my comms gear - so just simply had to do a road test too.
Seemed a shame not to go out when I had a perfectly good reason too.

Still got the fault so going out again tomorrow to see if it occurs during high rev ranges  :008:

Went for a 250+ mile ride up to Hugo, Oklahoma and back. Just wanted to get out before it got too hot! However, it was well over the century mark before I got back but it was still well worth it!!! On the way back home I found this sign!! If it wasn't so hot i may have headed over but decided to head home instead! maybe on another ride at another time...

Then there's the abbey of Mol, just across the Belgian border:

Picture of Bough,  Lake Vernwy, had a trip out Sunday to test out my new tank bag only a cheap Oxford one but it worked well, nice run out, a bit dull weather wise, nearly didn't get there someone decided giveways don't apply to them, luckily I was only going slow so not a real problem, let them off because they did stop and Shrewsbury centre does have some strange junctions to confuse tourists :002:

Had a track evening at Cadwell, I take it all back moaning about the jittery suspension, on the smooth hot track surface the tiger  felt great, as did the original scorp tyres although they were melted with balls of rubber hanging of the edge. My biggest problem was ground clearance with the foot pegs touching down, hanging of the side does not come natural to me

Just did a short run this morning in the sunshine - a couple of hours probably.

What I did notice though (having clocked up just over 1500 miles) is that I'm starting to bond with this thing. There's never been any doubt in my mind that the Tiger is a great bike but I just didn't fall in love with it - think that might be changing.......

Took a ride in the countryside, Emmeloord - Vollenhove - Zwartsluis - Hasselt - Nieuwleusen - Dalfsen - Heino - A friends place.

In order to get to my friends place, I had to do a kilometer or two of packed mud and gravel. Bike worked beautifully on stock Scorpions, stiff suspension with full luggage and pillon. No issues whatsoever off the road, was fun navigating around huge wet potholes.

Piping hot day yesterday, so left it too late afternoon to take the bike up the Long Mynd, a nice ride out and saw a Tiger come past, didn't get to see whether it was a 800 or xc only it was white.  Hoped to see the gliders launching but i think think they'd finshed for the day.

Also called in on my mate to see how the bikes were coming along and for a cup of tea or even water, unfortunatley they were just starting there tea, so it was a very quick visit.

West Lothian, Carnwath, Netherurd, Broughton, Moffat, B7020 to Annan, B721 to Gretna, A6071 to Longtown, A7 to Selkirk, A707 to Caddonfoot, A72 to Blyth Bridge, then back to Carnwath then home. 203 miles. First decent shot with Madstad  screen. Went to Longtown with visor mostly closed, 1 dead fly on visor. Millions of it's mates on screen. From Longtown to West Lothian with visor up, mostly at 75ish, no watery eyes, still air, amazing.

Run to Cornwall via Dartmoor, loverly weather and scenery, but lots of sheep and ponies on the road.
Final destination, my Sons house to see his new BMW S1000 RR.
He had a spin on the Tiger and grounded the footpegs !!!! ( I haven't done that yet )
He thought it was an excellent bike and liked the comfy riding position  :417:

Correct. I think they always have 2 spare aircraft to cover for tech problems.

When they travel to airshows the Techies get a chance to ride in the back seat.

Enjoy your Euro trip buddy. I find riding on the continent much easier than the UK.
They are far more bike aware and bike friendly.

Took my Tiger to the Dealer for it's 500 mile service and to get the engine bars fitted.

Rode the Tiger from the beach to Palomar Mtn, then back to the beach. 191 miles (I went up/down the tightside about 6 times as there was zero traffic.)
All on one tank of V-Power. :152:

The trip is really only 45 miles each way, but I had to get pie in Santa Ysabel @ The Julian Pie Company, and a sammich from Dudley's Bakery.

No "bounce." Just a perfect handling and confidence inspiring ride. :037:

Went to Auckland on the weekend to check out the speed show but decided to just ride instead.

Here's a video of us negotiating traffic on Sunday on our way home.

The road is call The Desert Road and travels past Mt Ruapehu (the tallest peak in the North Is), Mt Ngauruhoe (Mt Doom in the Lord of the Rings) and Mt Tongariro and is part of state highway one, the main highway of NZ.

Sweet video Gr82briding  :028: Can see why you chose to carry on riding.   :169:

Also like the way many of the car drivers pull over to let you pass. It's the opposite here! They pull into the middle of the road more to block you, if they can  :138:   





 :451: [& rant of the day!]   

F###### Car Drivers  :232: - Had two try to kill me this Sunday - one cut across 3 lanes of traffic and almost into the side of my Tiger and a second chose to do an emergency stop and instant reverse right in front of me when they picked the wrong lane in town! - both time I guess where my fault, what with me being on a bike!    :027:

Last Sunday, I led 21 Triumphs (not all Tigers) on a 200+ mile run in the local mountains of Southern California. Due to some starting points farther away, some riders rode in excess of 350 miles. All twisty roads. Some had never been up/down Palomar Mountain. A good time was had by all. We had food at one of the local casinos. Julian for pie. There's pics and videos, but not on this site! :007:

A dozen or so whales with calves chillin in the shallow waters off the coast. Plenty of good gravel twisty road with about 40klm of corrugated/ wash outs/ water crossing and a last minute blast across the beach.  :306:(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i1054.photobucket.com/albums/s497/dezzas66/675459173_photobucket_68386__zps46facd54.jpg) (http://s1054.photobucket.com/user/dezzas66/media/675459173_photobucket_68386__zps46facd54.jpg.html)

I thought I'd test the kitty in the dirt, so I took a ride up Hurricane Creek Rd in NC. It would have been better for me to have aired down the tyres, but I didn't have a pump with me to fill em back up again.
I was impressed, she plowed right through the soupy stuff, over rocks, and river crossings.
Didn't stop to take pictures until this fella met me at the top.

400 miles round trip to Cromer and back on Saturday - the roads weren't especially exciting but I enjoyed being able to see over the top of cars/hedges and the bike felt just grrrreat :D  All in all a good day out.  Onboard computer says 53.6 MPG so not bad considering it's still quite new  :002:

West Lothian to Balloch, pretty boring, then up the side of Loch Lomond to Tarbet, heaving with traffic as usual, not a lot of fun. A83 to Inveraray, Lochgilphead, Oban, weather mostly miserable, roads mostly wet, but still brilliant. Back down A85 to Lochearnhead then A84 to Doune then M9 home. 265 miles.

Went on the Gloucestershire RoADAR Half-Day Group ride (76 +30 miles) for a change.

My first Group Ride for a while (house move) and my first on the Tiger - Great Fun playing 'catch-up' in The Cotswolds between Staverton and Kemble Airports.

A lot more fun than on one of my Trophies, that's for certain...

An Explorer owner and myself did a fuel consumption comparison ...Explorer 60mpg viz Tiger 46 mpg.

Yes, I was probably having TOO MUCH FUN !

This is my favourite thread, some fantastic pictures. I shouldn't really post the next bit as it's where I went yesterday. Along M8, then Edinburgh bypass, then Dalkeith bypass - all extremely tedious. A6093 to Pencaitland (birthplace of Jock Taylor, 1980 sidecar world champion) then B6355, A6112 to Duns, A6105 to Greenlaw, then A697, B6461 to Kelso, A698 to Hawick, popped into the Hizzy Room at Hawick museum, then A7 to Edinburgh then along the "lang whang" and home. I don't go to South East Scotland that often but maybe I should do as the roads there are in far better nick than they are in Central Scotland. Also I lost an earplug in Hawick and  couldn't see the point in riding home whilst only wearing one so I rode home without earplugs, this would have been torture for me with the oe screen, with the Madstad it was not too bad at all.

First pillion for my wife in ages, so took her on a nice gentle run with a treat at the end of it.
Set of from Banchory, Aberdeenshire - over to Tomintoul, Grantown on spey to Findhorn - quick refreshment by the sea, then for a great meal & night at Boath-house lodge, Nairn. :-)

First time I'd tried out my scala rider helmet intercoms - couldn't get them to work, probably just as well as my language was getting a bit spicy coming over the mountains with a stiff cross wind!

This ride is a follow on of a previous meeting of intro to what they do, supported by a fashion show of Triumph underwaer! Nice!. All kinds of bikes attended, from H-D, Honda,R1, and mostly Triumphs. Highlight of the day? Riding through the flashing speed camera. Lovely morning ride.

erm... yesterday went with 4 friends by gravel as far as possible to the Sani Pass border post. @ XC's, GS12, KTM 990 and my off Roadie!. Some lovely scenery, and being winter, very dry and therefor very dusty. Bike behaved excellently, didn't stand back to any of the others there. Interesting thing though, we all filled up before the ride, rode together the whole way, I was sweeper, when we topped up after 255 km, the 2 XC's needed 13.2l, yes the same! and I needed 11.6l. Only explanation I have is the mileage, I have 30000km+ and the XC's sub 5000km. Lovely ride, great friends, beautiful country side. Total for the weekend 658km.

Completed Yesterday the "UK Essex Air Ambulance Motorcycle Run 2013" which ran from Dunton to Harwich. i gotta say it was marvelous especially as it was the first time that my son has joined in as pillion.

the start was marvelous, the thunder of exhausts from 1000's of entrance and every type of 2 & 3 wheeled machine rumbled through the chest. It was awesome. i gotta thank all the people on the route standing across bridges & laybys cheering everyone on. At the finish we were all received like royalty coming into Harwich for an afternoon of fun.

Great Day, Great People.

Mini tour to Skye at the weekend but only just got pics sorted.

Amazing place (it was my first visit) great roads, no traffic, stunning scenery, lovely people.....and surprisingly we had fantastic summer weather too  :017: Will definitely be heading back up!!

One of the highlights was the old Kylerhea-Glenelg ferry and the roads to and from it (the Old Military Road on the mainland). Definitely one to do in Scotland and can be tied into the Applecross trip too if you have wee bit of spare time  :002:

Total respect to you both, that road looks amazing. Hope I'm still riding when I'm 70 too!!

Cabins varied from 2 single beds that we booked but got a free upgrade to "Lux" cabin... double and single beds plus microwave, fridge, kettle and underfloor heating!! Oh and the wee porchy sheltered patio area too!  They also have larger Lux ones too with two doubles!  Site was fab ...other half isn't into camping properly so this was a compromise he would do.  Then Saturday was total luxury treat in Skye for his birthday.
More pics as requested...
Glencoe in the mist....but dry!

Fantastic ride, over 800 km. Now where's my bucket and sponge...

Traveling throughout New Mexico.  I have attached a few picks taken at the Capulin National Monument and on NM Road 434 South of Angel Fire.  I decided to cut the trip short due to impending thunderstorms, flash flood warnings - a really wet year up there.  I did manage to get 1500 miles in 4 days though.

Tiger800girlie,

Great photos, glad your trip went well.
Scotland was featured on a recent TV prog with Henry Cole, 'The Best Biking Roads in the World', can't argue with that.

Saw the Henry Cole program last night, quite good. Wish it had been on for longer. Also the 2 NZ shows that had been on the previous 2 nights were also very enjoyable.

Thanks guys - was a fab weekend.

Watched Henry a few times recently and caught a little bit of the Scottish one  :018: Felt he was a wee bit harsh on the west coast as you can do the majority of it on an extended loop without doing the boring stuff he moaned about :038: Enjoyed NZ though  and would love to return there one day  :002:

Nice pics tiger800girlie.

That ferry to Skye is something else!  Where did you get to on the island?  Herself & I were married at Eilean Iarmain (both second time round).  We go back there regularly for a fix of fresh lobsters & langoustines.  We'll be back up again in October.

Just back from 10 days further 'oop' North.  Got as far as Achiltibuie above Ullapool.  Weather was pretty good, midgies were terrible!
Will post a few pick when I can get them through photoshop.

Hi Hamish, Ullapool was a possibility for the weekend but Skye won!  It's on the list for next time though  :002:  We passed by Eilean Iarmain I'm sure....that whole part of the island is gorgeous. Great place to get hitched!
Just a wee tour round the south for us...  Arrived Saturday afternoon and had champers n scones, a stroll round the bay and the remains of Knock Castle, snooze then amazing 6 course dinner at Toravaig House. Tour on Sundayin fab sunshine heading south and across to the west then to the ferry and the ride home.  Only saw rain in Glasgow for ten minutes so were almost dried out by the time we got home  :001:

Have spent a couple of days camping and riding in the rain... fortunately not to cold  :190:, covering nearly 1200klm.
 
Caught up with buddies (from last years Ayres Rock trip.. 2 hadn't been on their bikes since then), at Kulin. Covered some back tracks to Hyden, whereupon we discovered most of our roads out were closed due to rain..

Took a chance on the Emu Fence north, and made first camp (in lite rain).
The next day all in all the roads were great travelling north for Koolyanobbing, with enough moisture to keep the dust down... a nice change. 

 Except for the occasional:

I'd never been up before all I could see was 2 white lines just in front of the wheels I didn't know the drops offs weren't too bad so my mind was playing havoc felt like I was riding a tightrope  :008:

Got lost on my own around Eilean Dornan in the rain so took some pics whilst someone came back for me  :034:

I have just been over to Le Mans to watch the 24hr Endurance race riding down from Edinburgh to Portsmouth. The first part of the trip in France I went along to see the Normandy beaches and they are well worth a visit if you are in the area. The American memorial and cemetery at Omaha beach is something special.

This was my second trip abroad this year, in August I went to Oschersleben in Germany to watch the 8hr Endurance race and had a great time on some of the minor roads travelling from Oschersleben to the Rhine before going up to Spa on my way back to the ferry at Amsterdam.

I had a Thunderbird 1600 before and was thinking of getting another one but these two trips have convinced me that the Tiger does everything I want a bike to do and I will be keeping it for a while.

The bike has a Madstad screen and Arrow exhaust as well as some work on the seat carried out by Saddlecraft in South Shields and all day riding is not a problem fully loaded with camping gear.

Thanks. That place is a 20km long and 4km wide sand ridge suitable for a bit of off-roading. But since the non-XC Tiger isn't allowed to go off-road (it says so on the manual!), I'll have to stay on the road. Luckily there are lots of roads like this:

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=s21.postimg.org/xecea59xz/hameenkangas_p.jpg)

It's also just a "trekking area", not a nature park, and it's also used by the army for training. So people don't mind if you're riding there. Pretty much a perfect place for Tiger on-road off-roading  :002:

West Lothian to Carnwath, Blyth Bridge, Peebles, Innerleithen, Selkirk, Hawick. Then B6399, B6357 through Newcastleton, then B6318 through Harelaw, Claygate to Langholm. B709 to Eskdalemuir and onto Traquair, B7062 to Peebles then back to West Lothian (193 miles). Quite good but a bit disappointed that it was too warm to switch on the heated waistcoat.

Took the Wife out for the first time on the Tiger. Out to Denbigh then Betws-Y-Coed on to Beddgellert then over to Bala and then home to Connah's Quay. Weather was great and we had a lovely coffee at the Conwy Falls Cafe(Recommended) and a mister whippy at Llyn Tegid also stopped at Rhug Farm shop. Can't say I don't treat the lady! Weather was great and the other half says she was comfortable for most of the 140 miles which is a bonus. Tiger was excellent as you would expect. Happy days :001:

I didn't.

Yesterday, first rain since getting bike a month ago and the Scorpions started sliding at 15mph lower than what is comfortable on the CBF1000 on PR2s. The shell grip stopped the slide, while violently enough to lift me off the saddle, not enough to highside me. So yesterday I ordered some PR3 trails and I used the CBF.

Had a good ride to this seasons first Mablethorpe beach race warmest ever such day it was packed. On the way home I tried the seat up at front down at back as suggested. My problem is , and I am not bragging just sagging, well I am into my sixties , I end up sat on my own scrotum as I slide forward but thanks to the above seat position this helps a bit, I just ache somewhere else.

Looks like the are some more programs coming, but poor Metisse is not doing too well, 90km range does not help in this country either! Let's see where the next program takes us. I have done that route many years ago, in high summer, got burned through my leathers!  :156:

Three day mini-tour of the Welsh coast and mountains.  425 miles (not one on a motorway), 52.5 mpg, 37.4 mph average.  Overcast with sunny spells, a couple of 5 minute showers.  Wonderful scenery, fantastic roads with little traffic, excellent food.  I viewed the sheep on the unfenced mountain roads with deep suspicion, but none of them attempted to throw themselves under my wheels.
Aberystwyth is a place to be avoided in future though as it seems to be a haven of yobbish behaviour.  It's probably no worse than any university town, but in such a small place..
The Tiger performed flawlessly of course.

Most of the trip was on gravel roads a constant hi speed barrage of rocks, potholes and chatter bumps. The bike never missed a beat. By the end of the trip the chain was toast (33,000km) put on new chain and sprockets including a 15 tooth on the front, its even better now.

Not so much of where did I go today as to where am I going. The mom of one of my wife's friends is recovering from lung cancer and her family are holding an auction tonight with the proceeds going to Macmillan and a local hospice St Giles. The family members are auctioning their services for money and I am offering my services to take pillions to local spots on the Tiger (they'll probably want to go when it's warmer but you never know!). I'll be rocking up on the Tiger to the auction venue to sell my wares tonight and hopefully raise a few quid. This is not a shameless punt but if anyone wants to chip in a few quid pm me and I'll get the charity details to you  :152: regards Lee

Went from Didcot to Wantage on the A417 then over the downs to Great Shefford on the A338 where i turned off right on an unclassified road to Lambourn, then down the B4000 to Ashbury where i turned right again onto the B4507 and went and parked up in the carpark of the Uffington White Horse chalk hillside carving for 2 minutes silence at 11 o'clock.
Then over the top of the hill past the horse and down through that big, gaping hole in the hill whatever it's called, awesome, cliche i know but it really is, and back onto the B4507 and then right again onto the B4001 back to Lambourn to get back on the A338 to Wantage, just because it's such a classic bit of road, then back to Didcot.
Short and sweet, well worth the effort.

Went from home in Northants through central London and out to Dobles Motorcycle near Crawley with my mate to look at his next bike, a Kwak Z1000SX. Remembrance Day so lots of traffic in the City. Came back via the wonderful M25. Huge accident causing all three lanes to be blocked. I felt sorry for all the car drivers (kind of) as I zipped through the gaps to the front and got away onto a totally clear motorway.

Odessa Tx to Dallas Tx via Interstate 20... From pump jacks (nodding donkeys to my English friends), cotton farms, wind farms, to scenic  plateaus. Did 376 miles, 5hrs 23mins including 3 stops for petrol with an average speed of 75.4mph per the puter. Cloudy and cool ride. Even though I was hauling ass and on the interstate, there was some nice scenery along the way...

I did a bit offroading today, it should be an easy allroad route with some dirt roads (packed sand) but it was very muddy and wet, so I had some difficulties with my dunlop trailmaxes. It was fun though  :002:

Took the tiger up to Carl Rosner to reset the service light. Apparently if it's not on when the bike is serviced they don't bother to reset it, WTF?

Note to self to remind them every time it goes in. I know the service was about 1000 miles early  but I was off to do 2000 miles in Europe so putting it in for a service beforehand made good sense to me.

My Roadie took me on a short ride on back roads, about 50 miles. Temp was about 25F, I stopped to take a picture with my cell phone. As soon as I took it out of my pocket and started to compose the shot, it turned itself off and wouldn't turn on again. When I got home, after a few minutes the phone went back on. I didn't know that I phones don't like the cold. Too bad it was a nice view of a partially frozen lake.

Haven't had a decent shot on the tiger for 4 or 5 weeks. Got out today. Over Clackmannan bridge along A977 to Powmill then Rumbling Bridge. Up thro' Glendevon, Gleneagles and onto Crieff. Along thro' Comrie and St. Fillans to Lochearnhead and back down thro' Strathyre to Callander and onto Stirling then along the M9. Quite enjoyed it. Only saw another 3 bikes all day. 118miles, probably as much as I'll manage at any one time over the coming few months.

Well, yesterday. And if you're a Brit, you'll know what I'm talking about when I say I only made the trip because I had to. Warminster to Truro down the A303-M5-A30. Wind gusting 85mph. Torrential rain. Poor visibility. Standing water on the roads. Bits of foliage flying about and clouds of spray from the trucks. Stopped for a rest at the Little Chef outside Honiton and a coach driver said he'd abort the trip if he was me. Luckily, he wasn't me.
The wind was the hardest to deal with, especially when it came blasting through a gateway in the hedge or a gap in the sheltering trees. It was blowing from the left, so I learned to look ahead and compensate for the blow by counter-steering. I had to remind myself to keep arms and shoulders relaxed, because it's natural to tense up with fear! Noise was constant- like being in a washing machine for six hours. Most of the time I kept the speed down to fifty mph, or even less when things got jiggy. Saw one other bike through the spray, going east.
Thing is, I had complete trust in the bike. Even when I couldn't tell which gear I was in, because I couldn't see the indicator, or hear the engine over the sound of the wind, she kept plugging on, handling well, even in standing water. I always knew we'd make it. I'm knackered today, though. Thank you, Triumph- you got me home on a day when tens of thousands of others never made it.

I took the Tiger on its first dirt outing today. Biff`s Boxing day Bush Bash! I took Duck creek road from O`Reilly`s in Canungra to Beaudesert. Not too hard but I was wearing a T-shirt and an open face lid (yeah I know its stupid, I left home for a short run and ended up taking a 50km dirt road) so I took it carefully.

After 20 mins or so I was starting to get cocky and grabbed some air (only about two inches, mind) and started sliding the rear. I was just starting to feel completely awesome and imagining that I was going to be the world`s oldest rider to join the Crusty Demons when a teenager wearing shorts and a singlet flew past me on an XR250 riding with one hand and waving. My dream bubble was well and truly popped and I was forced to face the reality that I am in fact, not a particularly good off road rider. The day was muggy and hot, well into the 30`s but overcast. Here are some pics.

Rode to Palomar Mtn (45mi each way) Went up/down the tightside 4 times, then down the fastside once. Saw 3 Bonnies coming up as I was going down the tightside, then saw a matte green Tiger coming up the fastside as I was going down. Then went to Julian apple pie co for apple/mountainberry with cinnamon ice cream, then on to Dudley's bakery for fresh turkey sammiches on Sandy Eggo sour dough. Rode last Monday up to Palomar also. The trace of snow is all gone as the daytime temps are 60F. I had to leave the beach as it was 80F today. Had to escape the heat, ya know! :123:

Took the Tiger to its new home, finally escaped the rental market.

Gonna put a bit of downer on the long tours but sure the Tiger will be just as fun for some weekend getaways.

Today was a nice day for a short. 70 mile, ride in NY. The weather was warm for the end of December, 25F in am and 50F by three o'clock. Rode through Harriman Park then went past West Point. Had some pork and beans for lunch with a nice warm cup of tea. I was very toasty warm with my electric clothing. Socks, pants under jacket and gloves. I've ridden in 10F in the past and didn't feel cold. As long as there is no snow, ice or salt on the roads I'm good to go. Here are some pics. :190:

My first ride of 2014. I`m very lucky because even though I live in a beach side city I have an unlimited supply of Mountains 5 mins away where I can go and play on my Tiger. Plus it is summer here all year round. Apart from when it`s winter. Even then it`s pretty warm.

Rode to Nowra (200km) for the first service also had engine bars and risers fitted. Rode home via Batemans Bay (250km). It was foggy, wet and cold going down (I thought it was supposed to be winter), weather was perfect down the coast once we hit the top of the Clyde Mountain it was hot and windy.

A nice little 50 mile circuit of West Sussex with Mrs Alp on the back. Roads a little damp, but virtually no traffic on the A 285 from Chichester to Petworth and only the odd car between Petworth and Billingshurst on the A272.

Can recommend Tiffins Cafe in Petworth for a nice bowl of warming soup!  :001:

Has everyone put their Tiger away now? :-)

Was suffering from cabin feeder yesterday so took a recon trip over to the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum along the A272 and back via A29. Stopped off at Whiteways Cafe for an essential warm up hot choc.

Didn't got into the museum as at £11 per adult, though I'd come back in the summer and make a day of it.

The sun decided to stay away and it was rather cold but despite that it was a fun ride and the scorpions weren't too bad on the slippery stuff (the sun on Saturday help dry out the roads I think).

First proper long ride in January I've done for over 10 years as my bikes usually hibernate until March but if the snow stays away I'll certainly be out again.

went for a ride last weekend to a place called Broga Hill abt 30 min south of the city. it's normally populated by hikers, MTB's and some dirt bikes.

it rained the night before so it was a lil slick in places. 8 bikes went up - an assortment of 150 and 200 cc dirt bikes and my tiger. only failed to negotiate one bend but the big tiger (compared to the lil dirt bikes) made it everywhere much to the amazement of the other guys.

single track most of the time

Marquez eat your heart out.  :047:

Yeah dropping the bike on yourself is a problem.
Years ago I dropped an XT500 and trapped my leg underneath. I lay there for about 15 minutes hoping someone would pass by. Eventually I took a very deep breath and braced my other leg against a part of the bike that I though would lift it slightly and screamed out loud and pushed at the same time. The huge effort moved the bike sufficiently to pull my leg out.
I've read accounts of people in desperate situations lifting huge weights.

Have to admit that the 800 doesn't come out much this time of year but I took the Tiger955 for a ride with my local TOMCC over to the CliffTop Cafe above Folkstone, which was closed.

Suited up just after 12pm in 36deg C. (late start due to watchin Aust steal another ODI off the POM's last night...  :455: )

Dropped in to the eastern end of Fitzgerald Nat Park this time. Some new territory for me with the usual twisties, blind crests and loose corrugated gravel for about 40klm's... then.....  OMG!!! :114: some one has gone and built a bloody great duel lane sealed road along the coast line for the last 30klm's to Hopetoun...wtf?  New un opened yet camping grounds, access to the beaches, even water ski potential at the Hammersly inlet.... was expecting 4wd track over dunes and sh*t for the last stretch.
I must say it is a beautifully made road with excellent sweeping corners, great visibility, hills, gully's...  and no one around to use it... how bizarre!!
A nice 23deg at the coast.

Round trip of 320klm, home at 5pm, "Jacks" poured,.... hmmm??  whats for dinner?   :031:

Last Thursday I took a short 385 mile jaunt from South Carolina to south Florida and did the return trip yesterday.  I wanted to visit my dad and take the bike. It is one of the things we have in common.  He sat and read my owner's manual!  He used to ride and his body is not quite well enough to ride anymore.

On the very straight and boring ride down, I did stop at the Daytona BMW/Triumph/Ducati dealership.

From home in McKinleyville to coffee at the Black Lightning Care (its not Ace, but we are Humboldt) From there, down 101 to Hwy 36, up South Fork Mountain, connected with 3 to Weaverville, and finally 299 back home with the sun in our eyes. Not a stitch of snow to be seen, but freaking COLD.  I on my Roadie and Chris on her R6. About a 265 mile day. Is it just me, or is the OEM seat a bit uncomfortable after 5 hours??

Funny you should say that because there's a name for that sort of beer. It's known as "small beer". Seriously.

Here in the UK recently the Govt. changed the Tax laws to give beers under 2.8% a break. So we're now seeing one or two of those on the bars which, as you say, allows us so have a couple with risking a seat in a jail cell.

You are right however, It does taste like it has already passed through someone's kidneys !

First ride out of the year today as nice and sunny. A tad breezy when I set of, but great to have a ride out. Was aiming for Hartside, but once in Stanhope I could see black clouds ahead, so had a spot of lunch before coming home in the pittling rain. Bike was hacky, so had to give it a quick wash.

Morpeth to Wooler then on to Kelso, petrol stop at Sainsburys then headed to St Boswells and through to Selkirk (did I see Hamish out on his BMW 800 by the golf club?) Started out towards St Mary's Loch with the intention of hitting Moffat for some lunch but it started to hose it down and the roads were full of shite/debris so I detoured down to Hawick, then Newcastleton and back to Otterburn then into Rothbury, through to Alnwick and home in time for the rugby and  :031:

A sweet 200m round trip in mainly dry mild conditions but great fun in the rain too. Shame my RST Rift trousers have started to leak!  :151:

I too had to pressure wash all the crap off once I got home.

Had a 3 hour blast around Hertfordshire today. Good fun, lots of quiet roads. One road i went on is from Hertford through Essendon to the A1000. Its a twisty one. There are roadworks vehicles passing through it at the moment, so lots of gravel, mud and wet areas to pass through. Must say the Annakee 3`s were fautless throughout and give much confidence. LOL , if i still had the Scorpians on i would have got off and pushed it ! .

First long distance run this year. Went to the Waddington Aircraft Viewing Enclosure (Wave) for a meet up with other bikers. A bacon and sausage bap and a brew was had, a wander around and a good run back via the highdike passed RAF Barkston Heath, quick run down the A1 And then home.

A brilliant 100+ mile run.

I did the first miles on my new Tiger today. I went up to Saffron Waldon, across to Haverhill and then home. The sun was out, but I was getting cold towards the end. The bike was filthy by the time I got back, so it was out with wash kit.
I'm off to watch my nephews tomorrow at Ruggerbugs in North London. It is supposed to be a better day weather wise.

I had a ball riding some of the best roads in the world and in 68hrs of riding I only had 1hr of rain. Got to love riding in N.Z!

Had a great run out from home in Torquay, out across Dartmoor, through Bovey, Moreton and Okehampton, past Torrington and on to the N Devon coast at Bideford/Barnstaple, turned right and ran on to Lynton & Lynmouth for a coffee stop, continued to Minehead via Countisbury and Porlock Hills, before turning back south to run home via Tiverton, some great roads over Dartmoor and Exmoor, and it only started raining hard at Exeter on the way home, when it became truly biblical, out for 6 hours and 300miles. Averaged nearly 50mpg.

This stretch of road (plus one a bit further back ) has a yello windsock in the gully section .
If one went fast enough on a very windy day ,open his jacket ,one could take-off towards the RH side of this shot .

A great ride ,knowbody around ,the only vehicle was just out side of Falls Creek and it was the local copper in his 4WD.

Rode her (yes, she is definitely a she, although as yet unnamed) from the dealers (on first pick up) to Nigg Lighthouse, overlooking Aberdeen.  One short hop for the Tiger, six heart-pounding miles for this returning to biking rider.  In my defence, there was a gale blowing!  And yes, I loved every minute and the ride home was a lot more relaxed - once I remembered you have to pull the clutch in to get her to start!  Sorry about the rubbish picture - I was still shaking at this point!

Aren't they just the best. Totally transformed the bike for me.

I headed down to a very busy Box Hill with a mate. Me on my Tiger, him on a VFR. There were three other Tiger 800s parked up. No owners in sight, I suspect they were in the very long queue for drinks and food.
Then headed to Newlands Corner and looked at all the classic bikes that turned up. Quite a different crowd there, mature is the word methinks.

Perfect day for riding.

Cheers, Funster.

Took her for a morning run around the Aberdeen-Banchory-Stonehaven triangle.  50 getting-to-know-you miles, nice and easy, but still great fun. Conclusions -

1. I am going to enjoy this bike!
2. It gets more mucky, more quickly than any bike I have ever known!

Took a little spin around the countryside in SD, this is the first ride of the year. I got to try out the Scott Oiler I added over the winter as well as the Barkbuster storm handguards. It was also a great test for the Madstad windscreen to see how well it works keeping cold air off me. I was pleasantly surprised with how well the system worked to keep me warm. We're forecasted to get up to the mid 50's but when I headed out it was around 38. The bike started kinda hard, evidently it didn't like sitting idle all winter but once I got it going and warmed up it ran like a champ. I may not be the most hardcore rider there ever was but I think this is proof enuf that I'm not a fair weather rider.  :418:

Glossop - Woodhead Pass - Strines (with a stop for a butty at the busy Strines Inn) then A57 had to divert at Ladybower as the Snake Pass was closed.
Hope - Castleton - Winnats Pass (Very Busy) - Chapel on le Frith - Hayfield - Glossop. Great day, loads of bikes out, would have gone further but had to be home by 3:00pm to watch England work it up the Welsh !

Did the bike safe day run by the Met Police.  It was the South course where we met at The Warren near Bromley.  Two sessions first of about an hour in urban areas then one of 2½ hours around the lanes of Kent in the area of Bough Beech reservoir.  Total distance including to and from The Warren 139 miles.   I learnt a huge amount about riding - particularly cornering at speed.  It was a good to understand where the Police motorcyclists tend to draw line when riding in London!

Rode along the beach today from Carlsbad to San Diego. 87 degrees F, along the beach. Light breezes, 5 foot waves, clear blue skies & water. Lots of pelicans, flying in formation. Dolphin playing in the waves. GF is thinking of getting a roadie (with new low gel seat.)

What is an "MOT ride?"

80 mile run, somewhere between a romp and a tootle around the farm backroads of Aberdeenshire (Aberdeen-Stonehaven-Banchory-Torphins-Lumphanan-Alford-Aberdeen) in glorious sunshine and 14 degrees and back for lunchtime. This bike could get seriously addictive!

It was stupidly windy. I felt like I was riding side saddle at times just to keep the bike on the road. Coming back this morning was better, but cold.
I stopped off in the forest for a bit of deer stalking with my tiger :001:

Round trip to Towcester from Bristol. Met up with other iron butt riders from across the UK.

She has about 350 miles total on it now. We just installed PSR GP adjustable levers on hers. Raised the bars up slightly so the reach is more neutral (for her.) She seems to really like it! She even rode it to the MSF range today.

We gotta get a pic of the Tigers and post it up!

[the girlfriend speaks] Since we rotated the bars up, now the switch housings seems to be at an awkward angle (too high). I tried to moved them down but after loosening the housings they wouldn't rotate. Do I just need to get used to them as they are or is there some way to get them to move down? P.S. I really do like it, very much more than the Street Triple! [/girlfriend]

First off-road experience ever. Courtesy of my sat nav  :173:. I was trying to reach a remote mountain road pass and my sat nav decided it was time for me to try about 5 kms. of gravel road.

According to Garmin "this" is a paved road  :138:

Nice 300km round trip from home (Ruffec) to Lac de Vassiviere: a large man made lake in the Limousin. 

A 50 km  boring bit of Autoroute in the middle: but some fun twisties on the 50 km run into the lake, through the hills. 

Must get a cam for the bike

Rode east from home up the Mckenzie River drainage to Blue River & up the Aufderheide Drive route.  U.S, Forest Service road 19, Willamette National Forest.  South to north road that skirts the edge of the Three Sisters Wilderness area in the central Oregon Cascades.  The 2 photos with gravel are on a side road and are halfway up the route near the summit of the pass into the Willamette River drainage at about 5000ft elevation.  The 3rd is near the main highway of the main McKenzie stem.  About a 140 mile day in brilliant sunshine with temps around 60F.  Very nice afternoon.  Checked out my old fishing haunts where I taught our sons to fly fish many moons ago.  This is a very popular m/c route & oddly not one other bike seen except on the highway to & from.  Maybe 5 cars in two hrs on road 19.  Odd.  Was wonderful.  The main hiway was littered with Harleys missing all the real fun on the 19 as it's nearly 2 hours of constant up, downs & twisties.

Went over to Leeds to get some rain gear, went boring A34, M60, M62, M621 way and got there in about an hour  :164: but might have tripped a pesky camera on the A34  :155:

Loads of cameras on the M62/ M621, so peeled off on the way back and went the pretty way through Holmfirth to Woodhead Pass, nipped round the back of the lower reservoir to Glossop, down Snake Pass to Derwent Valley and the "Dambuster" Ladybower reservoir, back through Hope Valley, Castleton, Winnat's Pass, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Whaley bridge and Macclesfield, not a bad little 175(ish) mile round trip  :028:

Added some extra miles on before my 500 mile service by going from Barry to Chepstow then over the old Severn Bridge.
The weather was brilliant with bright sunshine all the way.
Seat very comfy though right wrist a bit stiff afterwards which is really getting used to a different position on a different motorcycle.
Riding over the bridge had great views both ways of the Bristol Channel.
Finished off by going down to Bridgend and back through Cowbridge.
108 miles done and now 325 in total.

Just back from the bike4life ride out, Shrewsbury to RAF Cosford fantastic turn out estimated by the plod @ over 8000 bikes which is outstanding, the ride was led by the two television paramedic emergency bikers, Flymo and Forrest , got to say the plod had this well organised and did a fantastic job in holding back the traffic for us all, 245 mile round trip and a lot of money raised for the Air ambulance, and museum, happy days, saw a few Tigers a couple of blue ones and two much faster black ones oh and a white one two up,
Cheers

Ditto to Stealth,  great event all for a good cause etc - even got the wife to come along on her Bandit.
 
Only spotted one black Tiger in Meole Brace car park at start of event  - black with lots of extra black bits on it (light guards / brake res / madstadt wings) - looked proper nice actually.

Unfortunately got me thinking I really want to test ride a 1600 Thunderbird - quite a few at the event.

Didn't go to Kirkby Lonsdale the other day, but I DID today!

And what a beautiful day for a ride out.

From Burnley, through Barrowford and onto Gisburn. From there up to Long Preston and along the A65 thru Cowan Bridge, Ingleton and on to Devils Bridge.

The sausage butty and cup o tea were lovely, and the ride back a little spirited.  :007:

Shall we say I `made progress`?

Cut the chicken strips down to a couple of MM on each side, and they won't be there too much longer.  :038:

Took the wife on a very enjoyable 100-mile round trip from Doncaster (UK) to the beautiful Derbyshire Peaks, via Glossop, through Sheffield and back home. Some great roads for most of it. The weather was kind, though we did have some annoyingly inconsistent cross winds during the higher passages, but made up for it with a refreshment stop alongside Ladybower Reservoir. Great fun!

Went to Iserlohn to meet up with the Sauerland Tiger group. 90km each way. Beautiful slightly mountainous roads. Fourteen people turned up. Breakfast outside. Butt of their fun - you won't get an English breakfast here. Went inside to the buffet and there was bacon and eggs! I nearly felt at home.

One slightly disconcerting thing on the way. I thought that my Garmin mount had slipped. Tried to push it back. Nothing. Then saw that my Palmer screen had moved backwards. I had fitted an MRA spoiler yesterday. Obviously the extra wind pressure was having an effect. It works beautifully. No buffeting. I had tried the Wunderlich spoiler, which is a great piece of German engineering, but it was too high. It would work well on a standard or touring screen. If anyone wants a smoked tint spoiler give me a nudge.

Off to Ireland next week for three weeks. Then when we get back off to the TOMCC Wulmersen event. Looks like a great location.

Now going to sit in the garden with some Pils.

On my Skill For Life training yesterday we did a fairly routine ride from Rotherham, down the A618 to Clowne, A616 to Edwinstowe Craft Centre then A614, A1 and A638 back home to Doncaster.

What made it more exciting was the torrential rain, flash floods and standing water to be spotted and negotiated safely! After 4 weeks on my new Tiger 800 ABS my cornering is still a bit cautious as I learn to trust the bike and the tyres but I managed to accelerate promptly and safely back to the speed limit as soon as the road opened out after the bends.

I got back home about 16 hours ago and my summer boots (supposedly waterproof) still aren't dry!

Did a short loop down the Santa Cruz mountains and out to the coast and back to test my new GPS unit.  I've attached a few photos so you can see how it all worked.

It worked fine on Summit Road

It worked fine on Highland

It worked fine at Pigeon Point

All things considered, I'd say this GPS unit was a terrific success.  Next time I'll try turning it on...

3 am start for the Lee Rigby memorial run last Thursday (22/5/14) in the pouring rain. Met up with couple other ex forces lads on the A1 Peterborough, from there to Toddington services and London gateway services on the M1. Thankfully by the time we got to London Gateway it had stopped raining. Met up with more lads and lasses, then off to the Ace Cafe for breakfast.
Then we were off to Greenwich park to meet the other thousands of bikers for the run to Woolwich barracks.
After a very very moving service we went back to Greenwich park for a brew then headed north on the M25 M11 A1 ride home.  As soon as we got on the A1 the rain was of biblical proportions.  :172:

But the bike and my triumph kit kept me warm and almost dry. My boots were full of water and I was a little damp but after that rain I don't think anything would have kept me dry except a car!!

I will post pictures when I've sorted them all out.

Didn't go anywhere on the Tiger as I'm waiting for a part as a result of a bird strike. Those turkey vultures do pack a lot of feathers! Maybe next week the part will be in. Too bad I gotta work everyday for the foreseeable future... :155:

Initial 2-up ride was down the South Hams coast via Totnes, Dartmouth, Slapton and on to Kingsbridge where there was a classic car show on the quay. Very nice. Got chatting to another new Tiger owner, also from Torquay, who may well be coming on here to talk cobblers with the rest of us.

I am very wobbly, especially with a pillion, having not ridden a road bike for several years. Fine once moving above 5mph, it's just the moving off and stopping that's a problem, due to an inbuilt extreme lack of balance.

Pretty hard to keep her below 5k rpm as well, especially when "making progress".

Ah well, I'm sure it won't blow up :084:

Memorial Day holiday here in the US ... another good excuse to get out and explore. I ended up at Codorus State Park, just south of Hanover and in the heart of central Pennsylvania. On the way back, I took a sharp (100-120 degree) right turn on pavement and did not pay attention to all the fine gravel and cinders that had accumulated on the road after a harsh winter. Down went the bike and I with it.

I dusted myself off and, with the help of a good Samaritan, righted the bike and rolled it off to the side of the road to inspect the damage: bent rear brake lever (not so terrible); scuffed right mirror, scuffed and slightly bent front brake lever (fixable). That's about it. I have never placed engine bars on the bike, as I infrequently ride off road, but I can see the sense in it now. Oh, and one other important piece of information: the (right) R&G Racing bar end slider - it took the brunt of the force and prevented a lot of other damage from occurring. Money well spent.

During a trip through Laos this last week, some mates and I chartered a boat down the Mekong river to Vientiane. The 30 meter long river boat carried the bikes and us through the majestic and sometimes rapid river. I think probably the first Tiger XC to experience this. Magnificent it was.

FoxyV, we have got it lucky out here. There is so much to go and see in the North of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and now Burma has opened up. I have done one ride in Burma (the second that the government allowed into the country) crossing from Thailand at Mae Sot and its like riding around 60 or so years ago. Truly amazing. So much to see there, well enough to keep me entertained for years to come and the 800 XC is perfect for the conditions; ie many of the roads that have had little to no maintenance since the Brits pulled out after WWII.

Yesterday took the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry with Mrs Alp and full luggage. Met nephew and partner in a Dieppe on his XJ850 and rode to Carrouges via Rouen, Pont Brotonne, Bourneville, Camembert and a calvados distillery. Recommend Pont Audemer for a coffee stop, although the cobbles could be challenging in the wet.  Fabulous ride in great weather and courteous drivers who all pull in to let you pass.

Nice sunday run from Home (near Ruffec) to Lac de Vassiviere: one of the largest man-made lakes in France.
300km (ish) round trip, via each way, via Limoges.   

Met up with a couple of other Brit expat bikers there.

The last 50 Kms to the lake through Eymoutiers and Peyrat-le-Chateau are really good twisties through the forest. 

Sorry, camera on Phone packed up so no pics: I'll do some next time!

Here's a link to the place:

Tried most of one of Ride magazine's French routes........

Great day routing from Carrouges to Alencon, towards Le Mans on small D roads but turned West just before getting there. Back through Cille le Guillaume (beautiful), Villaines for lunch, Pre en Pail, Domfront for a coffee, Flers (almost), La Ferte Mace and back to Carrouges. 4 hrs 25 mins rolling with 3 coffee/food stops and one fuel stop. Overtook one lorry and one tractor and that was the sum total of the traffic!

Fab day  :047:

I met up with a couple Girlie riders in Alabama 4 weeks ago to visit the Barber Motorsports Museum and do a little riding in the area.  The weather didn't cooperate for a good bit of the weekend and we spent too much time at Barber to get a lot of riding time.  Here's the videos from the ride.

Today's trip is to Fort William & Mary in Newcastle, NH. Newcastle is an island off the NH coast and quite a pleasant destination. The fort itself is part of a US Coast Guard station. There's but one route on/off the island which requires transversing 2 smaller islands. In  a future trip Ill get some shots of the town itself as its quite picturesque. During the heat of summer its the place to be. From my home to Newcastle is about 90mins +/-.

The first 2 pics are of the fort's gatehouse. I have no idea why they positioned the Port-a-Potty in front.  :017: The 3rd gives a very brief history and the 4th is the view from the parade ground. The missing bits are the barracks and other sundry wood frame buildings which are now long gone. The cellar hole/foundation for the barracks used to be exposed but I see its been landscaped.

Post by: mrchuffy on June 14, 2014, 11:57:42 PM
The fort has a very long history starting in the 1700s and going right thru WWII. As such it was expanded several times to meet the requirements. The 5th, 6th and 7th pics show those various renovations/expansion. In the 5th you can see the original stone wall. The brick came next followed by granite during the American Civil War and finally concrete during WWI & II.

Sorry, in that last posting there arent that many pics...should be 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  :015: Also meant to add that the granite work is quite good. Ive explored it extensively and the masons were top notch. The raw material were delivered on-site and it was dressed there. Youll notice the granite work is unfinished. It was decided that the extra fortification was unnecessary (during the Civil War) and stopped midstream.

Heres the last bunch of pics from the fort trip. The 1st shows a small light house. Its still a nav aid but privately owned. I think the USCG has something to do w/ its operation and I dont understand the relationship between them and the owner. Ive been in this house once and its been well kept. I try to remember to get interior pics and post them some time. The final pic is looking west up the Piscataqua River toward Portsmouth. If you looked east youd see the Gulf of Maine. The land across the River is Maine. Also across the river but now obscured by trees is the companion fort. They guarded the river from colonial period until the end of WWI. In fact during WWII a sub net was stretched between NH and Maine at about this point in the river.

Crumbles Post Office (Eastbourne) to post a packet to my German biking buddy. Westfield (East Sussex) to Battle then North Trade Road to Boreham Street. Across the marsh past Herstmonceaux Castle to Pevensea Bay then coast road to Asda.
Returned via Pevensey along A27 to Hailsham then A22 / A267 up to Horam & Heathfield. East toward Burwash, (H)Effingham and Hurst Green. Great road if it's not too busy.
A21 south past John's Cross then across to Cripps Corner and Broad Oak. Another great road about 5 miles very open and twisty. Back to Westfield on A28.
Nice blast about 50 miles. Quite often to the "H Circuit" anticlockwise. (Hastings, Hurst Green, Heathfield, Horam, Hailsham so made a change to do clockwise loop.

Rode from Mülheim to Köln (Cologne) about 65 km to pick up my repaired Hepco and Becker Xplorer panniers from Off the Road. They had replaced the broken parts, but nothing else. No refurbishment. For a, so called, premium product not a particularly good service - I was quoted six to eight days, it took three weeks!

Because I was in the area, I decided to visit Triumph Köln. Nice ride through the twisties in Bergischesland. Fun.

I have tried all the other dealers in the area. What a change in attititude. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I decided on the spot to buy the crash bars for my Roadie and they fitted them on the spot in twenty minutes. Now that is what I call service. I also mentioned that I was having some vibrations, they checked everything and made useful suggestions. Didn't try to sell me anything else. Just wanted to know that I was happy with the bike. Brilliant.

On the way back up the motorway, I saw a boat being towed in front of me. Alarm bells. Anything that is being towed is a red flag to me. 

Then I saw an unusual movement from the car that was overtaking the boat. This is all at 120kph. Strange, then a large (one metre) object on a cable appeared in the road. A fender from the boat. Oops. Object fixation. Which way is it going to go. Object right, left hand down. The car behind me hit it. Goodness only knows what happened to him. I was still trying to get my adrenalin levels down.

Safe back home.

German motorways are always interesting .

One observation, the vibrations have disappeared at four and a half thousand revs. No dead hands. Wonderful.

Bis nächster mal. Until next time!

Rode south down Highway 1 along the California coast past Big Sur, then tried to double back along the Old Coast Road.  This is a narrow, steep, gravel-strewn dirt track that winds up into the coast range, ducks down into a valley, then climbs back over the mountains again to Highway 1.  Some riders can handle routes like that without any trouble, negotiating the various obstacles and hazards with a casual aplomb ordinary mortals cannot help but envy.

Now I know that I'm not one of them :)

But I managed to get turned around and make it back to civilization, where I stopped to snap this photo.  All in all, it was a great day.

Rode 200 miles in upstate NY to try out my new rear hoop, Pilot 4. Gained more confidence with each twist in the road, new  rubber is always a treat, this one is exceptional. The Scorpion lasted 9,000 miles and could have gone another 1,000, but why push it. Besides I was anxious to be rid of the original tire. Back to the ride: twisty roads that took me and friends past Bethel where the original Woodstock event happened. this ride will go into the book as very memorable.

Took a trip to Borth from Shrewsbury, as they say it's about the journey and not the destination.

To keep it short as it's easy to see where I went on a map. I went Welshpool, Newtown, llanidloes then onto Clewedog Dam, nice trip in it's self, got really nice as i went round the dam (dam on my right) mainly single track.

Ended back on the Machynlleth road, but part way along I saw a sign for Machynlleth over montains with passing places.  So I did, I was expecting a potholed track over grown, but what I  got was a windy twisty road that was race track smooth, with great views, and visibility that mean't alot of the time you could seethe road for miles.

Not sure where it was, but it came into Machynlleth on the Forge Rd, easy to spot if you zoom in on google.

Sorry no pictures as i have problems with uploading them, but promise you it's worth. Saying that North Wales in the sunshine you can't go wrong.  Planning another ride out as soon as I get chance.  Sha

Great run, personally I'd head right to Aberdovey than left to Borth, sorry Borth :) My sister was in a caravan in Borth, hence visiting Borth.

Hi all,

A video I made from my trip through Holland/Germany/France/Andorra/Spain/France/Belgium/Holland.
Me and a friend hopped on a train from Germany to the south of France. We went into Andorra  and back home to Holland in 8 days. We had no plans, nothing booked and loads of fun!!
In my opinion this is how a motorcycle trip should be...

Rode to our weekly bike night last night to see if my back was ready to be back on the bike.  Had a good short ride with no issues with the ruptured disk.   :047:  When I returned home I noticed I was a bit low on fuel, 20 miles to empty so needed to get out this morning to refuel.  Filled the tank and put about 70 miles on the bike and still no issues with the back.  As I returned home I realized I was having so much fun I forgot to turn on the GoPro or stop and take any photos.  :430: Oh well, maybe next time.

Nice ride up to the Lee Valley from W Sussex for an afternoon of white water rafting yesterday, with Mrs Alp on the back.  First time N of London for the Tiger and the first time on the M25 on a bike for me......filtering definitely saved a bit of time round the Dartford Tunnel although pleased to have stayed off it until then.

On July 31st, my 70th birthday I left Fairbanks Alaska at 7:15 and rode to Prudhoe Bay Alaska. I gassed up, turned around, returned to Fairbanks where I gassed up (not my only gas stop) and went on the Delta Junction where I gassed up again around 6:30 AM making an 1100 mile day, then I proceeded on to Haines Junction in the Yukon Territory where I called it a day. The Tiger 800XC is a perfect bike for the Dalton Highway to Prudhoe. How I got to and from Alaska would be a 14 day trip report which I may or may not write.

Yes it was, sorry. Still, I got within 30ft of a Lanc when it started its engines. And when the Vulcan started, it blew everyone's hair off. Nice and warm, though.

This Monday, Labor Day in the US, my little son and I went for a ride on the sea coast. We started just N of Hampton, NH and ended in Ogunquit, ME. The exact route is: NH 1A which follows the shore to the rotary. At the rotary take NH 1B into Portsmouth thru town to US Rt1 and over the (new) bridge into ME. At Government St turn R onto ME 103 to York Village where it intersects US Alt 1. Turn R and follow US Alt 1 to Cape Neddick. Turn R onto Nubble Rd and then R onto Sohier Rd. Youll be at the light house. We continued from there N on Shore Rd to Ogunquit then out to US Rt1 back to Kittery.

It was loads of fun but rather warm (mid 86 or so with dew point in the low 70s). On the way back we got stuck in traffic going S on Rt1 into Kittery, ME. That was miserable! To make everything right again we stopped at Bob's Clam Hut in Kittery for chow and to regroup. Yum!!! Here are a couple pics from the trip....

All we've got is the M25 round London which is a car park - as most vehicles are not allowed in London.
Except for a few desolate roads in Wales and the far north of Scotland all our roads are so congested the best fun we seem to be able to get is pottering around on a classic british bike at a slow speed.

Ah, the myopic view of one who rarely ventures out of London!

Sure, we don't have the huge expanses of north America, or Australia - but there are plenty of fabulous places to go and ride here.

No, I'm not telling you where they are, I don't want every Tom Dick and Harry clogging them up :-)

Edit :Hmm, I see (in another post) you live in Leicester - I don't understand why you can't find nice roads to ride at all!

I always have great rides when I come over to the old sod to see my Father.  Wales obviously.  Hard to leave out when you land in Holyhead!  Even the congested South East - my final destination, Tonbridge, offers plenty of good riding.  Not just about blasting along.

Yes OK there are some nice roads. The good ones seem to be 2 hours away though. I enjoy the Dales, the Yorkshire moors and the Cotswolds, but they do take a few hours to get to, then you have an hour or so wizzing about and it's time to go home. I just get frustrated having to wait a full five minutes to find a gap in the traffic to get out of my road on to what is not a main road at all, but it is all clogged up with trucks and cars, as is most of England. The B roads are the best, and have a higher speed limit for a lesser grade of road, curiously. Presumably you have noticed.
Or perhaps it is that I am old enough to remember when you could ride or drive around and make reasonable progress. The fastest car I will ever own in my life is a 1968 Mark 2 Ford Zodiac. Why? I went from Swindon to Buckingham Palace in 58 minutes. I don't care what Ferrari or MV Augusta you have got you cannot do that now.
When I passed my bike test, you didn't need a helmet, you could park outside Woolworths on the High Street, and going to France didn't include having to lock up your car to prevent illegal immigrants trying to climb in. I can't figure out why they come all the way from Africa, across the European Union all the way to the channel to try to get to England. What's wrong with Italy, France, Spain and so on?

I went to the Victory Show in Cosby, south of Leicester. See www.thevictoryshow.co.uk (http://www.thevictoryshow.co.uk). It was amazing. there were literally hundreds of various military vehicles from the US, Germany, UK, Japan, Russia and probably more, but the show was too big to get round in one day. There were about 50 tanks of various nationalities, all in working order and driving round. There were thousands of troops, from about every nation involved in the war. They re-enacted a big battle spread over a couple of fields. The Allies won.  Well that was a good thing, or the course of history would have changed.
Planes flying included various Messerschmitts, Douglas C47, Spitfire and Hurricane, but the one that impressed me most was the P51 Mustang. Apparently the Americans built the first ones, sent one to the UK where it was declared as 'useless in every department except for low level flying'. They sent it to Rolls Royce in Derby where the engine was thrown out and a Merlin engine fitted, whereupon it became a fabulous flying machine.

It runs over three days and next year I might take the motorhome and stay.
Apparently I can't even attach one picture. Huh. File size is too big. Go and take a look at the www.

I took my Tiger home.........After a 2 week 2077 mile  trip through France.
I found the cure for that flat spot on the rear tyre, just take your tiger to the Alps.
If you've not been there yet and you get the opportunity.........GO !
You're Tiger will enjoy it more than you, mine did, it kept wanting to turn back on the way home.

Those Alps are made for motorcycles and hats off to the French for their quality roads.

Keep safe

On Monday night I got back from a ride to Nevada.  I took a 2 day ride from the San Francisco peninsula to Nevada and back.  Two days and 1000 miles.  The first day was fine.  Went over Sonora Pass then to Mammoth Lakes and on to Tonopah, NV.  Day 1 - 400 miles.

Going up to Sonora Pass
(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/xs400/bike2_zps7e23315f.jpg)

East of Mammoth Lakes
(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/xs400/benton_zpsc06e3987.jpg)

Somewhere in Nevada
(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/xs400/bike1_zpsf5485a16.jpg)

Next day I left Tonopah and the real excitement began. 

You might have seen the recent news saying there were flash floods in Las Vegas and Phoenix over the last few days.  Well,  I happened to get caught up in some of that.  On Monday I left Tonopah, NV at 8:30 AM.  There had been some sprinkles of rain over night in Tonopah but nothing significant.  Before I left, I checked the weather and the weatherman said there were flash flood warnings to the east in Ely and Elko, so I decided to go north from Tonopah and head to Austin.  The weatherman said it was partly cloudy in Austin. 

About 20 miles north of Tonopah it started to sprinkle – mud.  Yes, it was mud, dust mixed with rain equals mud.  It was light and easy to ride in.  After short time it turned to light rain.  I stopped to put on my waterproof gloves and put the tank bag in my trunk.  As I continued north I noticed that the sky ahead was completely black from the horizon up.  I couldn't even see the outlines of mountains visible up ahead – just black.  It didn’t look good.

I thought about turning around but decided to press on.  After a little more riding I caught up with a truck.  It also started to rain harder.  At this point there were small rivers of water here and there running across the road. Flood water - not to deep, but I had to be careful.   I decided to just follow the truck.  Soon it was raining so hard I could only see the truck in front of me.  The rain just streamed like a river off my visor and I could hardly see at all.  Then I heard and could see flashes of lightning.  Some of the lightning strikes were very close – maybe hundred yards away at most.   Once again I thought of turning around, but it was too late.  My thoughts were "Follow that truck or die!".  I couldn’t see more than 50 feet in front of me and the lightning strikes were pretty damn scary - and close.  I was hoping if I stayed with the truck, he's stay on the road, and the truck would be a better target for the lightning than me!!  So I just continued on a short distance behind the truck for about 20 miles. I was nearly blind because I also had fog and water inside my visor, in addition to the river flowing off the front. The truck was going about 45mph and I was sure he know I was behind him.  The lightning was spectacular.   I was both excited and scared at the same time. 

Looking back at the storm  It looked a lot worse from inside the storm.
(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/xs400/rain_zps1438725f.jpg)

Eventually the rain started to lighten up.  Up ahead I could see the sky getting lighter also.  After a while the truck driver signal me to pass.  I'm sure he could see up ahead and he was giving me the all clear.  I finally passed and a few miles down the road the rain stopped. 

I got to Austin and it was just partly cloudy as the weatherman said.  I turned west on Highway 50.  I was determined to get away from any more chance of getting rained on.  I did hit some more rain showers, but it was nothing compared to what I just went through. 

The rest of the ride was uneventful after than.  I ended up going back to the bay area over Monitor Pass and Ebbetts Pass.  The ride over both passes was fantastic. 

At the end of the day I'd completed 600 miles.

I went on my last ever trip to Scotland - depending on the outcome on Thursday obviously! What staggered me was the number of YES signs as you cross the border. OK some Scottish people have a chip on their shoulder about the English and, whilst this is disappointing, the majority of English people simply accept this as the norm and move on.

Martin McGuinness has paid tribute to Ian Paisley and what does that say about the people of the UK? Whilst we can disagree on many things, we have been a "United" Kingdom for over 300 years and now some dim witted idiots are trying to break this up.

If the yes vote wins then the impact it will have on the people of Scotland will be devastating. The economists, the financial institutions, the international businesses, the educated etc are all united on this but somehow the message is not getting through to the grass roots - as well as the children who are allowed to vote. A yes vote will mean a withdrawal of business from Scotland. It will also have a serious impact on the UK's standing in Europe and the rest of the World. The subsequent resentment towards the Scottish people who caused this will be much much more than the resentment towards the English that already exists and I genuinely hope that this doesn't happen.

I know many people who live in Scotland that are already planning to move south if the yes vote wins. If the vote is yes then I can say with complete honesty that I will never set foot in Scotland again. I suspect that many others will do the same. If a nation wants to commit suicide then the best thing it can do is vote yes on Thursday.

Just where I went and gathered my thoughts on my Tigger today!

Took a 211.0 mile round trip ride down to the San Jacinto Battlegrounds, Galveston, downtown Houston and back home. Made a stop at the USS Texas BB-35.

USS Texas (BB-35), the second ship of the United States Navy named in honor of the U.S. state of Texas, is a New York-class battleship. The ship was launched on 18 May 1912 and commissioned on 12 March 1914.

Soon after her commissioning, Texas saw action in Mexican waters following the "Tampico Incident" and made numerous sorties into the North Sea during World War I. When the United States formally entered World War II in 1941, Texas escorted war convoys across the Atlantic, and later shelled Axis-held beaches for the North African campaign and the Normandy Landings before being transferred to the Pacific Theater late in 1944 to provide naval gunfire support during the Battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Texas was decommissioned in 1948, having earned a total of five battle stars for service in World War II, and is now a museum ship near Houston, Texas.

Among the world's remaining battleships, Texas is notable for being the only remaining dreadnought battleship, though she is not the oldest surviving battleship; Mikasa, a pre-dreadnought battleship ordered in 1898, is older than Texas. She is also noteworthy for being one of only six remaining ships to have served in both World Wars.  Among US-built battleships, Texas is notable for her sizable number of firsts: the first US Navy vessel to house a permanently assigned contingent of US Marines, the first US battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns, the first US ship to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers (analog forerunners of today's computers), the first US battleship to launch an aircraft, from a catapult on Turret 3, one of the first to receive the CXAM-1 version of CXAM production radar in the US Navy, the first US battleship to become a permanent museum ship, and the first battleship declared to be a US National Historic Landmark.

The Battle of San Jacinto, fought on April 21, 1836, in present-day Harris County, Texas, was the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution. Led by General Sam Houston, the Texian Army engaged and defeated General Antonio López de Santa Anna's Mexican army in a fight that lasted just 18 minutes. About 630 of the Mexican soldiers were killed and 730 captured, while only nine Texans died.

Santa Anna, the President of Mexico, was captured the following day and held as a prisoner of war. Three weeks later, he signed the peace treaty that dictated that the Mexican army leave the region, paving the way for the Republic of Texas to become an independent country. These treaties did not specifically recognize Texas as a sovereign nation, but stipulated that Santa Anna was to lobby for such recognition in Mexico City. Sam Houston became a national celebrity, and the Texans' rallying cries, "Remember the Alamo!" and "Remember Goliad!" became etched into Texas history and legend.

To avoid the unusual hot weather today, I led another Tiger rider through the estates of Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas and back to Carlsbad. Not a very "long" run, but a nice ride anyway. The Chargers won today. Temperature on the field? How about 117F...

Supposed to be hot the next 3 days, then cool (yippee, as I have to coach this Saturday.)

Yeah, I'm one of those...   :150:

I went on my last ever trip to Scotland - depending on the outcome on Thursday obviously! What staggered me was the number of YES signs as you cross the border. OK some Scottish people have a chip on their shoulder about the English and, whilst this is disappointing, the majority of English people simply accept this as the norm and move on.

Martin McGuinness has paid tribute to Ian Paisley and what does that say about the people of the UK? Whilst we can disagree on many things, we have been a "United" Kingdom for over 300 years and now some dim witted idiots are trying to break this up.

If the yes vote wins then the impact it will have on the people of Scotland will be devastating. The economists, the financial institutions, the international businesses, the educated etc are all united on this but somehow the message is not getting through to the grass roots - as well as the children who are allowed to vote. A yes vote will mean a withdrawal of business from Scotland. It will also have a serious impact on the UK's standing in Europe and the rest of the World. The subsequent resentment towards the Scottish people who caused this will be much much more than the resentment towards the English that already exists and I genuinely hope that this doesn't happen.

I know many people who live in Scotland that are already planning to move south if the yes vote wins. If the vote is yes then I can say with complete honesty that I will never set foot in Scotland again. I suspect that many others will do the same. If a nation wants to commit suicide then the best thing it can do is vote yes on Thursday.

Just where I went and gathered my thoughts on my Tigger today!

Do you really think its about anti-english sentiment? I must have missed that bit of the debate.
The Scottish parliament has made  a good job of running the country as far as I can tell. Westminster has failed the UK for the past decade. Time has come for an opportunity to take the next step. I find your comments insulting. The only resentment I can see is your own perception of the sentiment behind the campaign.

Sorry philmcglass if you felt insulted. This was not my intention. What concerned me was the power of those YES signs as I crossed the border into Scotland and the impact it had on me personally. In my view it was clearly anti English and (your word) "insulting". Actually, the majority vote in every constituency on the border with England was "No" so all those signs were in vain and, with hindsight, I may have over reacted when I did my original post. This means that I may have been wrong and I am very sorry if I offended anyone with my original post. If you read the second paragraph of my original post you will know what I mean. 

However, I still cannot understand how it could have taken less than 2m Scotts to break up UK without the rest of us (including the Welsh and Irish) having a say. That would have been a travesty. As it happens there were more Scotts with common sense than those without. If you really feel so passionate about independence for Scotland then perhaps you should move back there from East Sussex and do your lobbying from within the place that you are so proud to be part of.

This past Saturday was a glorious weather day. Took the CBX, the Tiger has done this trip earlier in the season, for a 140 mile ride on some winding black top. North past Bear Mt. on Rt 9W, to Rt 208 past West Point. great views of the Hudson river. then back on 9W for lunch, some more riding through Harriman Park, Seven Lakes Dr. and home. Memorable day for sure.

Last tour this year for the "Law Angels" a bunch of lawyer bikers, went in the hillie area between Frankfurt and Limburg in Germany. Excellent road conditions and lots of fun especially as we had a tour last week which got stopped after 20 kms because on of the Angels decided to ride his bike (Harley) into a rough meadow breaking his arm twice. Guy normally goes on a Honda sports bike and maybe he wanted to show us he can be fast with that ironheap of a bike, well did not really work.

Anyway the tour today was perfect to end the season, I will keep on biking until it gets too cold or wet...

We took a run up to Ullapool on Saturday, stayed overnight and came back on Sunday. The trip up there took in a couple of detours to visit bike shops in Elgin and Inverness as hubby is still looking for a replacement for his XT660.  No joy yet, but he is watching a couple of Tiger 800 XCs on evilbay.

Once out of Inverness and on to the A835, the fun really starts, lovely bendy road, long sweeping bends, hardly any traffic and the weather gods were smiling on us, it was a great opportunity to make good progress.   There were still a few groups of bikers out and about enjoying possibly the last decent weekend of the year.

Sunday morning started with wind and rain, poor Tiger had been left out all night getting wet  :003: I felt so bad for her, but she seemed none the worse for it.  As I  left Ullapool, I overtook one Sunday driver and then had the road completely to myself for the next 30 miles :001: it was a shame that it was lashing with rain and very windy, which slowed things down a bit. I was pleased with the Tiger's handling in the wet and she is much better behaved in a crosswind than my old F650. 

It was a great run out on some fun roads. Tiger now has 520 miles and is showing spanners at me. Next trip is to Aberdeen for her first service.

Today was a beautiful riding day in north Florida. 45 degrees F at dawn and 75 at noon. I rode 412 miles scouting roads for a ST1300 rally next month. We looped around Lake City, Madison, Live Oak, etc. My Tiger has 905 miles on it now. Yesterday, at 477 miles, I had the dealer pull the OEM bias ply front tire and replace it with a 110/80R-19 radial Scorpion Trail. It makes a huge difference on this bike. It tracks beautifully and ignores painted lines and grooved pavement. Wasn't supposed to yet but did the ton for the first time today - "briefly".

Today was a lovely day in Holland. So I took the Tiger for a final spin before it's winter sleep.
Just in time because this evening salt was poured on the roads....
In the Netherlands when temperature is about +4 degrees Celsius, the roads are salted....
And that's when I stop riding... So the long wait has started.  :012:

Ditto here, we are having a lot of rain today, temps in the low 50F. tonight will be bellow freezing, I'm sure that salt will be applied to the roads to keep the wet roads from turning to ice. So yesterday was my last ride till spring. :190:

On Thursday last week I rode the final 3 legs of a business trip that took me from Yorkshire to London and back. The forecast for the two days of the trip was cloudy but mostly dry so I jumped at the chance of doing it on the bike!

The previous day, I'd ridden from Doncaster about 130 miles to the very comfortable Alfred's Lodge in Wantage (Oxfordshire), where I was able to park the bike securely.

Following Morning: Leg 1: Wantage to Winchester: 44 miles.
Lunchtime: Leg 2: Winchester to Vauxhall, London: 70 miles
Evening ride home: Leg 3: Vauxhall to Doncaster: 201 miles

The 1st 2 short rides were pleasant and fairly uneventful. In Winchester (via the A34) I stopped at Good Life Garden Centre, Winchester for a meeting and very nice coffee! The ride into London was pretty smooth, too, with pretty good road conditions, hitting heavy traffic just as I got to Chelsea. But so nice to be able to use bus lanes there (unlike Doncaster) and to be exempt from the congestion charge.

The fun and games started when I set off home after my next meeting, leaving Vauxhall around 3:30pm. I'd planned to head up the Edgeware Road to join the M1. Unfortunately, the universe had other plans! I had my 2 panniers on the bike so filtering was pretty nearly impossible for much of the tightly packed gridlock I got stuck in trying to leave London. So I decided to cut my losses and head west on the A40 then NW on the M40. More gridlock. After several hours I got to Cherwell Services north of Oxford for a welcome warm drink and a bite to eat.

When I was ready to leave again, after about 40 minutes, it was still relatively warm for an English November (around 8ºC) but there was now very thick fog. I cut across the A43 to the M1, adjusting my speed to the poor visibility I had through the fog. Once on the M1, (around 7:15pm) the traffic was quite heavy and the fog getting even thicker. In these situations risks are higher for all vehicles, especially bikes, so safety is the name of the game. I tried to make good progress where it was safe to do so, and the extensive 50mph roadworks and mostly poor visibility were compensated by being in the company of some well driven HGVs, that also lit up the road.

I had a further 3 hours of fairly technical riding, constantly observing traffic as far ahead as I could see, leaving enough stopping distance and a safety bubble to the sides. The only major problem I had was when I stupidly lifted my visor when the traffic slowed to a crawl. That's when the fog - in the form of water vapour - coated some of the inside of my visor (except the bit protected by the pinlock) and my glasses. Suddenly losing visibility like that, in thick fog, while surrounded by HGVs is something I'd recommend avoiding!

Despite the challenges the bike performed brilliantly at every step. It was actually a very enjoyable journey, though I needed no rocking when I fell into my bed that night!

I rode down to San Diego, along the coast. Then, I rode back up the same coast home! 80 miles round trip. Went to La Jolla gliderport for a spell. Watched people step off the cliff... :017:

Since I'm off tomorrow, where shall I go, what shall I do?? :028:

Oh yeah, we had 2 Tigers rolling. 1 roadie, 1 XC.

Nowhere exotic.

Went from Ayr, to New Galloway, Newton Stewart, Girvan and then back to Ayr. 100 or so miles.

The roads were wet and greasy and it was a bit chilly.  :190:

First ride on my new [to me] Tiger on familiar roads.

Great run, did it all, no bother at all, handles great, even with the Pirelli Scorpions.

I wouldn`t have as much fun on my old Speed Triple.

Happy Days.  :046:

I feel your pain.  I've got a ruptured L5 disc.  Thankfully I've been able to control it with a couple injections but this is only temporary, surgery is more than likely in my future.

Being an RC, I always get the question, "What do YOU ride?", from my students. I get 12 new riders per class. Sometimes 24, if I do a double.

 Today, I rode my 800XC to the range, and my GF (an RC also,) rode her 800 roadie. We have to park just outside the fence line, along with other ridercoaches. All our bikes can be seen by the students on the range.

Between the 2 of us, we have 32,000+ miles on our Tigers. Only issue I've had was a gear position sensor (fixed under warranty.) She's had zero issues.
She gets slightly better mileage than I. Both her tires are radials, while I have radial rear and bias front. (3rd one!) That and I weigh 65 or 70lbs more than she ... :164:

A rare December day up here in New England (USA) when we have a bot of sunshine and temps above freezing. Got a little break from family activity and did a north-west-south-east loop of about 65 miles in about 90 minutes. Secondary marked routes. Stopped about 40 miles into it for a photo of why I turned south before heading further west.

The weather on Saturday was unusually mild in the North East US for the first week of winter. There were many bikes out enjoying the most likely last such warm temps till spring. My tiger was amongst those braving 45F sunny conditions. We had a short 40 mile ride through Harriman Park's Seven Lakes Drive and back on Rt 9W. I stopped at the gas/petrol station to fill the tank, added stabilizer fluid to ready the Tiger for hibernation.

I went for an 80 mile ride yesterday. There has been a tradition for 41 years for the Polar Bears to hold a New Year's day ride leaving from the firehouse in Ogdensburg, NJ. There were mostly HDs but some other makes mixed in with I guess 150 bikes. It was 20 F at 8:00 when I left my house and got as high as 38 sunny degrees.

About 200 miles. Started wet and 4 deg c warmed up to 10 deg c and cooled off as the rain stopped.

Altberg Boots, Hein Gericke Gortex suit, Polar Buff, sealskin socks and Held 2 fingered gloves worked fine. No need for Gerbins heated jacket so it stayed in my top box.

Great day out in Devon and Somerset visiting Costa nr Tiverton, Bransons in Yeovil and Riders in Bridgewater for Brunch.

I went the same place I go everyday - From South Nottingham to Goldthorpe in Barnsley - my place of work.
62 miles - 122 round trip.
It was particularly fun today as it was -2C and the office complex had snow and ice everywhere.
So glad the ABS was working properly, I needed it a few times.
Heated grips earned their supper as well.

I finally got a day off when it was GREAT riding weather.  The last day like this I was off for was mid-November so I couldn't pass it up without a ride.  Ran up to Shiro, Texas for lunch at a convenience store that I had heard served a pretty good cheeseburger.  The rumors were false, they serve a GREAT cheeseburger.  Made a few passes thru Sam Houston National Forest on the ride.

Shiro, Texas . . . Pretty much a ghost town

Found premium for $1.95 and regular at $1.72... Nice prices but it kills the jobs out in the oil patch but, that is the nature of the business. I was born and raised in Odessa, out in west Tx and I've seen the boom and bust cycles before. It can be rather unpleasant. Folks are losing their job or worried about losing their job right now. I just wish the cost of a barrell would get to where the oil companies could keep producing...Drilling rigs are being stacked in west Texas and I'm sure up in North Dakota also.  :110:

Picked mine up from the dealership following new frame and rebuild.
Cracking day so went for a ride down the A21 to test it out.

After a good couple of hours on the bike and plenty of clutch work my left hand could tell it had been some time since I had ridden (5 weeks)...or I just got a whole load older in that time.

Took the tiger to Finnish Winterrally. Roughly ~120 participants, I was the only Triumph rider. Bunch of 950 KTM's and equally many GS's, and not forget one FJR. Longest distance award went to Italy from where one rider had taken his GS800 all the way trough Europe and was planning to continue via baltic back home. Few from Germany and Estonia as well, mostly with sidecars.

First time I ridden that far into London and have to say with loads of lanes on dual carriageways coned off, they really don't want to make it easy for people to travel around. Fortunately I put my filtering skills to good use. Also I think I saw more speed camera's yesterday than I've seen in the rest of my life. Everyone = slow down for camera then speed up, slow down for camera then speed up. I wonder how many accidents the camera's actually cause cause people are busy looking out for them? Oh and the show? It was good if somewhat heaving.

Rode my old 1999 ST1100 Pan European to the Super Sausage on A5 where I had a Ryvita and a glass of mineral water.

Then rode to Pure Triumph in Wellingborough where a mate and I had booked a couple of test rides;

Tiger 800 - lovely motor. Absolute peach. Slick gearbox. Riding position felt very upright compared to Pan - felt like I was sitting on my tail bone rather than butt cheeks, and wind protection was not as good (obviously). Chain drive was unnoticeable. Bike felt a little small to me (5'10" and 17 stones. I'm a fairly substantial person).

Explorer 1200 - much more power than the 800 (obviously, again) but the engine was as rough as a badgers arse. Gearbox was stiff and notchy - it felt a bit like my old FZR1000 Genesis. Seat felt like a plank despite being a squidgy gel thing. Riding position was much better for me. Higher and wider bars and it's one very large motorcycle, which suited my ample carcass just fine.

The irony was that my old Pan flew on the way home. Fast, smooth, comfy. Fits me like a glove (not an OJ Simpson glove). Had me asking myself "Why are you changing bikes (again)?". Had to keep reminding myself that it's 16 years old, with a (possibly) rotten swing arm, questionable electrics (work in progress) and that every panel and all the cycle parts bear the marks and scars of 56k miles of (mostly) year round riding.

Pick up the Tiger on Thursday and work begins to tidy up the old Pan - whose fate depends on how I feel once we've done the swingarm, wheels, electrics, carb balance etc.

I might keep her as a second bike but I already have 3. It'll be 4 on Thursday and I just don't have the garage space.

Finally collected my Tiger XRx from Bridge Motorcycles at Exeter this morning. 

Really pleased with the Sat Nav mount.  There is a little bit of flex over bumps but it is exactly in the right place and doesn't interfere with the view ahead. 

Then a lovely but bracing ride back along the coast home and off to lunch with my Mother.  And she thought it was her special day !!!

380 mile round trip to darkest Powys for a surprise Mother's Day visit.  Bloody cold on Clee Hill and needed to fill up 3 times on the trip.   Mostly a chance to test out my touratech seat bought from another member.   Super comfortable but I can only fit it on the high setting so traffic light stops were introducing a lot of mirth for fellow travellers.  I think I will either have to get leg extensions, learn how to ride like Sammy Miller or flog the seat.

Had a ride out into the Yorkshire Dales with the missus. Went via Silsden, Blacko, WEST BRADFORD! (Didn't see Oyley), Slaidburn, Ingleton, Askrigg, Kettlewell, Bolton Abbey & home. 140 miles. The current was out for the first hour & a half but after that a bit nippy. Better than being inside at home though! When I got home, the new Conti Trail Attack 2's had arrived so that is a job for tomorrow. :046:

I went to Aberdeen to trade it in. And Shirlaws Aberdeen f*cked up so I'm on a Versys 1000 for a few days. Fine by me, the new one gets delivered to my garage instead of riding back over salt covered roads. That means I can coat it before it goes out.

Worst weather I've ever ridden in on the way back. Could be because of the bigger side surface area but the gusting sidewinds were nearly blowing me into the opposite lane, I was doing less than 50 in the end. That and the snow covering my visor of course...

In a determined effort to put some 'running in' miles on my new XCX I set out today from Norwich, went west towards King's Lynn then followed the A149 coast road all the way round to Cromer then stayed by the sea down to Winterton and back home. 150 miles of sunny bliss (and great F&C at French's in Wells).

Not quite on the same scale as bdkrivit but fun for me!  :152:

I went for a ride out on my new XCX. Blow me if half of Lancashire and Greater Manchester isn't experiencing road works. Never been on so many diversions. Finally got to a cafe for a brew to find out they'd just closed. Love the Arrow with baffles out. Stops the Tiger being too sanitised. Not used to the tyres and narrower wheels so had some fun getting acquainted with them on the twisties. So glad I didn't get the XRX or Tracer.

Started off in the rain yesterday morning, then some lovely weather riding through Andover, Cheltenham and Swindon (What's that Magic Roundabout all about????) and came back in the sunshine (and a lot of wind!) through Chipping Norton, Oxford, Reading, Guildford.

Definitely going to enjoy exploring more on this bike.

A great night for a ride out last night and as I need to get some miles on the Tiger, I had a ride over to Fleetwood (roads were very quiet). Sat around the site of the old pier for a while and watched the sun go down through the off-shore wind farm (forgot my damn camera)  :138: before the chilly ride home.
Kept the revs down to 5000'ish as required and the bike reported 55mpg.
Great ride, love the touring screen, a vast improvement over the standard. I can hear the engine at 50 now, with no more buffeting until motorway speeds, and even then it only just catches my forehead, so I'll pick up one of the small clip on deflectors. My only other niggle is the somewhat yellow headlight beam, reminiscent of candlelight. The light output is good enough, but I prefer something whiter so I've ordered some Philips 'White Vision' bulbs for summer nights, along with 'Philips Extreme Vision 130%' for when the shorter days are back.
Just 350 miles left before I can start to really enjoy my rides out!  :028:  :417:

We did a very nice round trip from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, to Helmsley, North Yorkshire. Doncaster A19 to York, B1363 to Helmsley. (64 miles.) En route my learned pillion informed me that the journey couldn't possibly continue without the teensiest shopping trip at Mcarthur Glen Outlet to buy a handbag! (Fortunately we didn't have the side panniers on so it could have been worse!) We set off again to the beautiful market town of Helmsley, where we stopped for a walk round in the very warm sunshine and for lunch.

Heading back by a different route we crossed the southern edge of the beautiful North York Moors National Park, through Wass, past Byland Abbey, joining the A19 near another market town: Easingwold. We then took off towards Leeds on the A64 but cut south again on the A162. My SatNav's BaseCamp app found us some great little back lanes to cross the Aire at Beal village, finally rejoining the A19 where it crosses the M62, then back to Donny. (133 miles in total.)

To make the most of the brilliant weather weve been having I  rode from Cleve don, Somerset to meet a mate at The Steel Horse Cafe near Abergavenny then on to Aberystwith for fish n chips on the sea front. She went like a dream. I particularly enjoyed the return home via Devils Bridge and across the head of the Elan Valley into Rhayader.

For some reason in a National Speed limit single carriageway road, 60mph in the UK, I usually have 666 on my clocks for some reason. When i notice I usually play the music from The Omen in my head.

Rode with 40+ other riders, many on Triumphs, escorting Steve Clarke on his final ride to a well-earned rest after his short battle with cancer. A way larger than life character, on and off the bike, and he will certainly be missed.

First ride other than the 75-odd ks from the dealer to home.  I just went out to pootle around my local hills this morning as the weather was absolutely appalling, and before you know it, I'd covered nearly 200ks! My extended local loop - Kilcunda, Woolamai, Archie's Creek, Loch, then on to Korumburra, Inverloch, Cape Paterson, Wonthaggi then back to do my local loop again!

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s503/davamb/bikes/BessieX/IMG_5313_01_zpsaxcsbwk5.jpg)

This is my favourite stop to raid the thermos for a cuppa, on the Loch-Wonthaggi Road.

If I hadn't have gotten hungry I think I'd still be out there - half way to Bringyerbarrowback, a silly grin on my face and my stomach growling.

Took the wife for a ride to Texas for the weekend.  Not that Texas but the small town of Texas in Southern Queensland, Australia.  Stayed the night at the only pub in the town and back home this afternoon.   All up about 800km First tour on the Tiger and it did it easily.

Excellent day trip up to Heathcote and back, meeting my bruvva on his Sprint and his buddy Matt on his TRX at Kingsbury. Rubbish run out to Whittlesea, but then fun via Wallan, Romsey and Lancefield then on via the Burke and Wills Track to the old bridge at Mia Mia. Back through Doreen, Hurstbridge, Warrandyte etc, just over 500ks by the time I got back to home.

Had a couple of days off and the weather was looking pretty good so took the Tiger for a run.  Went to a little town called Dorrigo and came across a collection of old steam rail engines and old rolling stock.

Then made my way to one of the best motorcycle roads in Australia, the Oxley Highway, about 50 km of every thing from tight hairpins to fast sweepers on what for Australia is generally a good quality surface.

This is all part of what they call the Waterfall Way so had to stop in and have a look at one of them.

We were assured that the Thailand plants operate to exactly the same standards as the UK factory and the UK bikes use lots of parts produced in Thailand anyway  :002:

I know and that's why I put the bit in small print saying it doesn't bother me. I trust Triumph to have control over their manufacturing and assembly processes as it's their reputation on the line.

 :451:  Ha ha, but in seriousness, the Thailand doesnt bother me either provided they hold it to high standards.  What would be an insult pay to us can be a blessing over there.  Result is stuff that is financially impossible to complete with local employees and difficult to find good workers for out west, is a dream job there.  With proper management, it is good for everybody.  They have better lifestyle, cost is lower and result is faster production which means employees who could get jobs they wouldn't like end up with a higher tech job as triumph demand just keeps going up!

I am putting some feelers out to see if the Thailand factory do customer tours. It would be worth the 5 hour ride ( or 1/2 hr flight)

Yesterday, after seeing K1W1's photos I thought "there must be some views in the Home Counties that match that" so I headed to the nearest place of "beauty" I could think of. Turns out K1W1 has me beat, as nice as Dubstable Downs is, it does match those views. I did get a Mr Whippy screwball and watched gliders take off and land so I enjoyed it. My phones camera photos were terrible so I deleted them.

For someone who's only ever been a tarmac rider, it was quite a challenge, but also one hell of a blast.

Hi Stealth, I think I heard a tiger toot at me but I was rather busy we marshals were thin on the ground so it was mark a junction then "make Progress" past 500+ bikes Tuck in behind the lead copper and wait to be deployed again! then a brisk ride back to the start (with police escort :156:) then get ready ta start again. the final run of the day saw over 1000 bikes in one convoy! but it was a long and fun day.

Bit of an impromptu ride out today after seeing Ozzers last video. I decided to visit Lake Vyrnwy avoiding motorways then back home via Bala. Great ride out, 180 miles. Even better when the sun appeared and I managed a couple of long overdue shots of the bike at the lake.  :417:

Spent Thursday 28th May at Thruxton on IAM Skill Day. Excellent experience with 6x20 minute track sessions with pre-breifing and debrief. Well organised and slick progression. Apparently the only way to get your own bike on the track there. Surprised at my progress for morning to afternoon finding the lines and the speed to get round.

Wow! Respect! That was a good run. I hope you had a good time exploring the islands. I did that 4 years ago on pushbikes, had some fun with constant head winds and met two Germans touring in Tiger Explorers, they reckoned they were much better than anything offered by some well known German speaking countries😀

I just did a wee bimble from the backwaters of rural Aberdeenshire to Glasgow which was no problem, but am contemplating going down to visit family in Wiltshire and Somerset. It should be doable in a big day from Aberdeen?

Our last stop on the return leg from the TOMCC Rally in Gairloch took us to the Grouse Inn on the Cabrach Moor for an excellent homemade lentil soup.  The Tiger never missed a beat of course, but came home pretty filthy.

Wiltshire is not too much further, maybe not the most fun ride you will ever have but definitely doable. If I was to do it again I would probably break it up over a couple of days but this time I wanted to maximise my time in Scotland.

Great trip, absolutely loved it! There is something about riding alongside rivers and lochs towards mountains

Took a trip over to Castleton "Peak District" one of my favourite places! A good ride once you get past the M60 and the A6 between Stockport & Hazel Grove. I would have taken the route from Glossop, but the Snake Pass is closed for a couple of weeks and that route via the M67 and Glossop is bad at the best of times. Bit of a late start thanks to the Royal Mail, but all in all a great day for a ride!  :152:

Mount Rainier National Park- Carbon River entrance. This is the closest entrance to Seattle. Just a nice ride with a couple quaint little towns along the route. About 100 mile round trip.

Just uploaded a video of the Castleton trip from Thursday. I'm a video virgin and the first time out with the GoPro so go easy.  :038:  I left the clips from the village and Winnats pass pretty much uncut due to the scenery and this is a ten minute section from Castleton to the A6 bypass on my way back to Stockport and the M60.
Didn't know what I was doing with the GoPro on the trip over, so managed to shoot 360 stills instead of video  :112: figured out my error over a drink at the Castle pub.

Had to travel to Yuma, Arizona from Phoenix yesterday for some legal stuff with my ex so made a loop of it on my XCX:

Phoenix - Gila Bend - Yuma - Algodones (Mexico) - Quartzsite - Wickenburg - Phoenix. 

Some 420 miles in one day with a long stop in Yuma, around the desert in the early summer.  Temperatures ranged from 82f in the early morning to 100f around dinner, then back to 89f when I finally got back home around dark.  Had my HyperKewl vest with me but never used it.  However. glad I had my Madstad screen both for neck fatigue and bugs.  The Madstad also allowed me to keep my helmet visor up making my head significantly cooler (Shoei Neotec). 

Also, I had a '14 Roadie and now an XCX and don't find the new cowling makes much difference with the heat off the engine.  I did find, however, that the hottest spot was the frame tubing on the right side just below the forward part of the seat.  Right where one's tight tends to sit.  I found that spreading my knees out a bit, allowing the wind to blow onto the inner thigh, really helped cool me down.  However, I did that once, both knees out considerably at the same time, while going 80 and the sudden changes in aerodynamics almost took me down!  70 and below no problem.

All in all a good trip, mostly on 2 lane desert highways.

Wow! Respect and congratulations.  Well done!  :123:  I am just on the foothills of this IAM journey and so can only guess how chufffed you must be.  ROSPA next is it?

Hey K1W1,
you're almost in my back yard. I went past Kongwak on Sunday on a run to Loch and back via the Wonthaggi-Loch road. Must admit though, I wasn't on the Tigga.

Interesting collection of toys. I definitely didn't see any of them on the road (I think I would have noticed).
Don't get down that way as often as I should with the roads in the area but I am going to head to the Mt Worth State Park for a look some time soon.

Actually happened over the weekend. Took the Tiger to the Oxley Highway to celebrate her 50,000th kilometers. On the way back, found a tiger on the side of the road, what's the chance of that? :)

Took advantage of what was supposed to be the best day of the year  :138: and did a recce run from The Toon to the ferry at Cairnryan. Sunshine until Dumfries then drizzle, then newly chipped roads and then proper rain.

Still, the road from Crocketford to Newton Stewart is probably the best road I have ever ridden. A very well kept secret for those Scottish Tiggers in that area ....... it was so good I did it twice  :002:

A two day wander around Wales, not exactly the Swiss Alps but still great roads and views. About 450 miles over both days which were very hot (30c+) so I lost a few pounds during the ride.
Brum to Kiddie, then Leominster onto the magical A44, the road that just gets better and better. All the way to Aber then the A487 down the coast to the B4329 across the Preseli hills and down to Saundersfoot for the night.
Off the next day the back way Pendine, Pembrey to the Gower, PITA to ride through the slow roads but stunning on the other side!
Swift ride home tracking North to Neath, Brecon , Bromyard and the B4203 to Stourport and then home.... knackered in the heat but a great trip.

I did a breast milk run on my Tiger on Tuesday. Collect from donor in W7 and deliver to Queen Charlotte Hospital.
It was 35 degrees in town. Temp gauge remained rock solid all day but the heat pouring out of the rear left of the engine was mighty uncomfortable.  Inner thighs were cooked to perfection by the time I got home.

Only 75 miles, but had an early evening ride over to the leafy lanes around Jodrell Bank, Cheshire. Managed a pint of the best Samuel Smith's bitter I've ever tasted, at the Whipping Stocks "Over Peover" tasted even sweeter at just £1.80  :169:
Fuelled up on the return trip as the trip meter hit 200 miles and the computer showing still 42 miles range left in the tank  :028:

Since riding my Tiger down from Shropshire at Easter I havn't ridden it, partly because of losing my job and moving into a new house. But to be honest I'd possibly lost my nerve a bit, finding many excuses not to ride it.

But today after giving it a good clean and check over I ventured out for an hour nowhere in particular and ended up in St Ives Cornwall not that far from home took a picture with St ives town in the background one of my favourite places, coming home via the moorland and a blast along the A30 home.

Got over my fear and now can't wait to get out again! Atlantic Highway here I come!

Two Tigers and a Beema rode from Kendal Cumbria to the Rosslyn Chapel Edinburgh yesterday (made famous in the Da Vinci Code) The A701 road from Moffat to the chapel is absolutely one of the best biking roads I've ever ridden you can really let the beast have it's head, the roads very quiet with long sweeping bends and straight lines I couldn't stop smiling! It's even better if you have a sat nav to warn you about the shape of the corners. Came back down the A7 via Selkirk and Hawick. Overall did just under 300 miles. Not bad for someone who's 70 next!!

Hi Dave

Thanks  :007:

Yes std silencer... Maybe due to my GoPro being in its waterproof case and being towards the front of the bike it's mainly picked up the sound from the headers and less of the normal helical gear whine you hear when riding the bike... Maybe!?

Had nothing planned for the day so decided to take a run up Duck Creek Rd into the mountains behind the Gold Coast.  Not really an adventure ride more an easy day out.  Duck Creek Rd is probably only about 15km long and climbs from the valleys up to the top of the ranges.  It is a four wheel drive road and is pretty steep in places and depending on how wet it is can be a bit of a challenge.  Today it was only damp so no real problems. 

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss11/ausfossil/DSC03279.jpg) (http://s557.photobucket.com/user/ausfossil/media/DSC03279.jpg.html)

There are a few places to stop and gave a bit of a look back over the valley below.

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss11/ausfossil/DSC03282.jpg) (http://s557.photobucket.com/user/ausfossil/media/DSC03282.jpg.html)

As you near the top it runs through some National Park bordered by farmland and is quite scenic.

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss11/ausfossil/DSC03284.jpg) (http://s557.photobucket.com/user/ausfossil/media/DSC03284.jpg.html)

The dirt finishes when you join the road to O’reilly’s resort and the National Park campsite.  Had a coffee at the resort and then headed for home on the bitumen.

After that it was about 30k down to Canungra for lunch and then home.  Not a bad way to spend a day.

Late ride out to Woodside Saturday arvo to check all my gear. Had intended to camp at Reeves Beach, but well after dark by the time I was in the area so decided to just camp at Woodside caravan park instead.

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s503/davamb/Rides/Woodside_Aug_15/IMG_5461_01_zps8osk2x98.jpg)

Place was almost empty and I treated it like a proper camp-out anyway. All the gear performed well. Bloody cold though. Wind on the way back this morning meant riding at about 15 degrees off the vertical. Will optimise my setup during the week and another test ride again next weekend with my bro.

A bit under 90 miles of this to the East of Woodside:

Had a great day out with some friends going round the west of Scotland yesterday. North from Glasgow, past Balloch, Tarbet, Arrochar, Inveraray, Oban, Ballachulish, Glencoe, Crainlairch and then back to Glasgow via the Dukes Pass.

Some amazing roads and the Tiger was ace on them all.

Was that you on the fine looking blue XRX on Saturday afternoon?

My BIL and I were stuck at at the junction of the A6088 and B6357 between Hawick and Carter Bar waiting for the AA to recover his white Tex that had broken down...... (they are not as good as the 800 but he hasn't realised yet). We were there between 2.30 and 6.30 pm twiddling our thumbs and watching, with envy, as all the other bikes went by. BUT, so many people stopped to make sure we were ok, which was a revelation.

I now realise that if it was you then you couldn't have stopped because you were obviously on a mission - 365 miles in a day - respect! You also did one of the best trips "up north" that everyone should try. Great route and glad you enjoyed it so no hard feelings!

Was that you?

From my front yard I can look up at the mountains, just a couple of miles away, and see what appears to be MILES of dirt roads in the foothills.  I finally got to take the Tiger up there.

Turns out that what looks like "dirt roads" are just pioneered Jeep and ATV trails that people have carved out of the hills.  Not graded at all.  Most of the terrain was far too steep and rocky for a novice off-roader such as myself.

However, I DID ride up and down some trails that were far worse than I thought I could handle.  Fairly steep in some places, with good sized rocks sticking out and the surface VERY loose with cobbles, gravel and sand.  I really thought I was going to come to grief several times, but managed to stay on the bike.  I had to slither my way down one particularly nasty section that turned into a rock slide with a motorcycle mixed in.  The bike was bouncing around all over the place under me as the cobbles rolled around, but as long as I didn't panic and try to STOP it remained more or less controllable.  As much as an avalanche can be said to be "controlled." 

Ugly stuff.  But I just followed the advice of every video I've seen on the subject and, rather than grabbing a bunch of brake in the bad sections, I let the bike have its head.  The bike does what it wants to do, and your job is to stay on the bike.  Don't try to micromange the thing.  You'll end up in a heap.

It helps that I used to ride down worse stuff that that on my mountain bike, back when I was young and skinny; the challenge being to see how nasty a surface I could descend without putting a foot down.  A lot of that experience came back to me.  Now my mountain bike happens to weigh 500 pounds, but the basics are the same. 

When in doubt, ADD speed.  Trying to slow down will get you in more trouble than speeding up.  Especially in sandy bits.

Had the day to myself on Monday so I thought I would go for a longer run,  I left Plymouth at 0800 and headed for Portland taking the Abbotsbury Road from Bridport,  took a picture with Bill then headed to Taunton Triumph via Yeovil,  from there is was back to Plymouth via Bridge motorcycles Exeter. 250 miles in total, 208 of those on one tank, is that reasonable?
The more I ride the Tiger the more I love it.

Took a couple of friends (yes I know but it is possible to have friends who own BMWs) for a little 200km trip around the area.
The white RT is an ex Police bike and it's fun watching the reaction of motorists when they see it either behind them or coming towards them.  Even parked beside the sporty road bikes in particular seem to have this habit of automatically applying the brakes when the rider spots the BMW.  :001:

A very sad day  :003:

Visited friends in my home county, for the second week in a row and what should have been the start of a happy and glorious weekend, begining with our annual visit to the local Airshow [Shoreham-By-Sea] unfortunately began with tragedy when one of the Jets taking part in the event, an aging Hawker Hunter crashed into the main road killing several people, many queuing to enter the Airshow!

It's been a long, hot and even for me, a harrowing day, one I do not wish to dwell on here, other than to say my thoughts go out to the families of all those who tragically lost their lives today and to those injured and currently recovering in hospital as I write. 

Whilst this tragic event cut proceedings short and with good reason, the event was attended by a good number of motorcyclist this year [I did spot a large number of Tigers amongst the number] if you happened to be one, I hope you had a safe journey home once you where able to leave the field and that the events of today did not effect you too badly.

A very sad day indeed.  :006:

I would add my sincere condolences and those of the West Sussex Triumph Owners Motor Cycle  Club, to anyone affected by the Hawker Hunter crash at Shoreham-by-Sea on Saturday.

It now appears that at least 11 people may have lost their lives, including two Worthing Football Club members and their friend, a Personal Trainer.

A very sad day for West Sussex.

Had my bike a few weeks now and on Sunday went on a 400km round trip to Khao Yai national park with the lady and panniers.

Decided to play GPS lottery so took in highways, back roads and dirt tracks. The Tiger never missed a beat and was so sure footed the whole way. Even 8 hours in the saddle with the odd stop for fuel and food was no problem. No issues from the lady either - which was a relief!

It's probably the longest ride I've done for many years and a great way to get at one with the bike... Loved it all and can't wait for the next one.

I've realised I really need to get a proper GPS unit as the OSM maps on my phone were ok but my S4 screen is not bright enough to see clearly... Thinking of a Zumo 390 that I see are reduced to £250 on UK Amazon at the mo'.

She's now had a good wash and chain lube - the bike not the lady - and thinking where to go next...

Back to Llangollen to pick up the A5 for Betws-y- Coed. On to Bethesda then back along the coast to pick up the awfull motorways back home.

I have a Garmin 390 and use the maps on motogoloco's site I find the Garmin works fine when a route is uploaded to it but
hard work to use on the road when trying to find somewhere.

For the last Sunday in August i left the Boston area by 6:30 in the morning and did a quick trip up to Portland Maine to meet a friend for breakfast.  Nice morning for a drive and little traffic on the way up so I got to use my cruise control most of the way.  About an hour and forty minutes each way made for a short but nice trip.  If folks are in the Portland area I recommend the breakfast place.  Great food and it was packed by 8:30.

Headed North for a bit then cut off the coast road and headed East through the Elan Valley. Circled round through Llanwrtyd Wells and back to Llandovery for our final coffee stop.
Very lucky with the weather. Only rained as we all split up to go our separate ways home.
232 miles, avg 45mph and 45mpg.

I think at this point you should probably mention to the listeners that this little trip is well over 2000km and that you have only covered a small part of the top of Queensland and the the equivalent distance trip in Europe would be something like Berlin to Madrid.

Let alone the distance to get here from Vic! I'll do a full write-up when I get home K1, still a long way to get there, but now on the return. Got a bit of a tale to tell and quite few half-decent pics to bung up. XRx performing like a champ. In Barcaldine tonght, skipped through Longreach. Now...

From South Norfolk to Wiltshire, near Stonehenge. Despite having done 1000 miles in the first 3 weeks of ownership this was the first long(ish) ride, at 200 miles that I have done on it. I cannot believe how comfortable it is and just how fresh I feel at the end of the ride (seat and screen as delivered on XRX).
Planning a hundred or so miles around the roads of Wiltshire tomorrow - there are hills here, not something I'm used to in Norfolk! It's a blast.

Dropped off at dealer for my new frame.  The '14 frame molds were pulled from storage & a new frame was poured in Thailand.  That was shipped to UK for finishing & paint.  It was then sent to Kentucky, cause, Kentucky, and then to the dealer.  They said a week or so...

Frame no different 2015 to 2011, except powdercoat finish/colour.  And it's not a cast frame either!!

Incorrect.  Triumph described how many ways the 2015 frames are different.  That the molds WERE already in storage.  I have it all in writing from Scott Callendar at Triumph.  Thanks for you thoughts.

Excerpt: "Your motorcycle frame is different from the new Tiger 800’s and therefore is no longer in current production. This means the frame has to be produce at our foundry in Thailand. Once complete it then has to be shipped to the UK for final processing and VIN stamping. Current ETA to ship from the UK is 14 Aug but the UK is actively trying to improve this date. If the ETA is improved I will communicate this to yourself and Anthony. If it does not the ETA to our US warehouse is 18 Aug with delivery to the dealer that week.

"cast" may be the wrong term, thanks for being so helpful and gracious when correcting my technical error.  "Made" or "built" will be used in any future comments. I am a former London, Southampton, and Coventry resident and A-Level/Community College teacher but, unlike you gentlemen, still make mistakes.

No sweat ... some of the frame can be 'cast'?  Head Stock area, Swingarm Pivot area etc ... with the rest of the Frame Tubing (or whatever) then joined on?  But not a whole Cast Frame ... that would be horrendous.  :004:

And don't sweat it where K-Mans concerned either ... I'll just give him some Knives to play with?  Won't take him long to cut his finger off  [given his past record ... the grumpy old g##  :150: ] ... then no my Keyboard Tapping for him.   :492:

My Son, on his CBR600RR, was amazed that my PR4 shod Tiger was pushing him round the corners during the heavy showers.  :007:

Took a ride to the high country to see the changing leave colors.  Still a bit early. Next week...  One thing I noticed today and I guess its from just putting the Arrow exhaust on, is just how many rpms the XCX spins at 80 mph on the highway, 6k!    I can't imagine really long trips with it spinning like that.

Triumph really needs should have had a different gearbox or gear ratio in the XCx.  A granny first gear for climbing and a highway gear for 6th...

Today I took a long lunch break and went green laning.  I rode to Pilgrim's Way in Kent in a 2.5 hour round trip from Canary Wharf.  Turning off ABS was fun, I'll be trying to find some more lanes to make the most of the Scorpion Trails before changing for PR4s.

This was a totally unplanned trip, I just happened to have a few hours to kill so the bike was set up for the daily commute, topbox and all.  It was nice to experience the bike in town, on the motorways, country lanes and green lanes all in one day - it's a nice versatile bike.

Jamieson Brewery for lunch with two mates.
10,000 bugs killed on the screen, my shoulders and my helmet
6 dead wombats beside the road
1 scared rabbit trying to race me down the road
1 very angry snake on the road after I woke him up while he was sunbathing (The third person in the line thought the snake was going to try to strike as he went past)
A beautiful 26C day with no cloud or wind
Just under 400km and about 1000 corners on Skyline Road and the Eildon - Jamieson road and the return.
Great ride.

On Saturday went to the North Norfolk coast to see the steam trains at Waybourne. Went via Dereham, Guist and Holt - great Tiger roads.

Rode along the coast to Wells then returned via Fakenham and Dereham again for afternoon tea at Yaxham. Sadly rain on the way home with plenty of Norfolk runoff to splash through!!

Having seen the state of the rear of the bike I ordered a Powerbronze hugger straight away.

First ride out with local IAM group. Norwich, Wroxham, Stalham, Sea Palling ending up at Gorelston after nearly 70 miles in rain and on mud! Good feedback from observers in group (good as in quality of feedback, not their assessment of my riding!). Despite pretty grim conditions, and the fact that I had to give the Tiger a good rinse down when I got home, I still ended the ride with a silly smile. 2 months of ownership, 2600 miles and loving it more with each mile.

Took my first pillion on BessieXRx yesterday. My nephew is mid-20s and is vision-impaired so will never be able to drive. He has peripheral vision only - a result of contracting a disease similar to meningitis in his late teens. He used to be a happy and positive kid, but now is a quiet and grave young man and doesn't seem to be very enthusiastic about life. We took a spin to Loch via the backroads and he really enjoyed it! Something only known previously to motorcyclists is that a motorcycle can be a therapeutic device. As they say in the classics; it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it...

Seven of us rode up to and around Khao Yai national Park.

600kms of fun!

Really really happy with the Tiger. Comfortable - no aching bum or shoulders, quick enough, Adventure panniers big and practical, great handling on rough roads and the twisty bits... And got nearly 60mpg!

The longer trips really make you feel at one with the bike - I love it and can't wait for the next 'Wild Hogs' ride out - if you've not seen the movie it's so apt!

Central Victoria. I rode 500Km to and from a Rotary Foundation meeting in Ararat. I used secondary sealed lanes (similar to Scottish roads) and dirt roads. The 800XCx was a joy to ride.

Do you have batten berg strips on the back of your panniers also?

Riding to work and back today - something I hate doing because it's such a crap run. There are worse bikes and worse days to be doing it on though!


Forgot to mention - bar risers make for a noticeably more comfortable ride - once you get the bar angle sorted!

Hey Cheesy don't be so tough on Mike. There are three things that are most important when riding a motorbike: good tires/tyres, good brakes and being visible. Several years a driver cut across the road from one shopping mall to the other side, I tboned her and the next thing I remember was a trip to the hospital in an ambulance. Under questioning by my attorney she said she didn't see me. She also neglected to have a valid driver's license.
Wearing hi-viz clothing as we call it in the colonies is cool, don't knock it.

Chico m8, I'm not knocking wearing hi vis vests at all.
Just "Polite" Police wannabe wearers. Especially the ones who go the whole hog by wearing white helmets and have battenberg chevrons stuck on their bikes.
When you see one off in the distance. .......well......you probably NOW get my drift.
Some around here actually sit parked up on their bikes monitoring passing traffic.

It's just sad m8. So sad.

Hello deelip and welcome to the madhouse.

Lovely bike and scenery too. BUT what's that on the non-exhaust side of the bike? I presume it can't be a pannier frame because there's nothing on the exhaust side, so what is it? It's got me baffled!

Looks like a little swampy. Damage to bike or rider?

I went over one at 3.30am on Tuesday on the way to the airport but fortunately I was in the car and the guy in front of me was in a 4WD with a bull bar and he hit it. What are the chances of having a mobile battering ram in front of you at that time of the morning?

Slim.
Yeah just a wallaby, not very big but big enough.
Stayed on the bike.
Bent the radiator as he came in from the left and tore the lower rad hose off, bent the outlet, dinted the bottom tank on the pipe, fan was rubbing on rad.
All superficial and we filled it up with dam water and I rode it home.
Small bruise on left leg.
Insurance claim being made.

Today morning I took my Triumph Tiger 800 XRx over a small hillock in Colvale (Goa, India) just to see how much trouble I could get myself into. The XRx is a road version of the Tiger 800 range of motorcycles and is supposed to have limited off-road capabilities.

As it turns out, I did find myself in a sticky situation on this trial. The grass was so thick and tall I couldn't see where I was going. As a result I found myself on the edge of a ditch with nowhere to place my right foot. The only option was to get off the motorcycle and wheel it in first gear while hoping that there was ground to walk on the left side. Quite an adventure.

Just got back from a long weekend trip up to northern central Thailand and the mountains around Petchabun.
We did 1400kms in three days, two up with adventure panniers fully loaded.

Loving the Tiger more and more... It never missed a beat and handled everything brilliantly. Spending 7 hrs riding with occasional fuel and food stops and only a slight case of numb-bum is pretty amazing. Got over 60mpg and no complaints from the lady.
The brakes were severely tested on the twisty roads up and down the mountains and no issues.

I'm getting to really appreciate the cruise control, used it a lot on this ride, not sure what others think

 :152: As my 1st bike with cruise control I am already a fan for 2 main reasons.

1. On the boring bits (dual carriageway/motorway) it is great to be able to engage it and give the right wrist a rest, something impossible to do without cruise control given how much engine braking kicks in when the throttle is closed (was even worse on the Street Triple).

2. With the UK sprouting 'average speed cameras' faster than wild mushrooms, particularly at every roadworks, usually with a 50mph limit, I simply set the cruise at 48 or 49 until clear of the restriction, helps to ensure a lapse of concentration doesn't reward me with points and a fine.

Completely agree.  Never bothered me until I got a bike with cruise control.  Now I see the point

The weather has been unusually pleasant for this time of the year in the North East of the US. No rain, temps in the high 50-60's F. Yesterday took back roads to Dingmans Ferry for lunch. There is a small privately owned by the Dingman family wood plank bridge crossing the Delaware River between NY and Pennsylvania. Stopped for lunch at the Forklift Café then back home, about 170 miles.
My BMW K1200GT had cruise control and it was much appreciated. The Tiger has a primitive throttle lock, not as effective since one has to adjust the throttle as road incline angle changes, but it gives me some degree of wrist rest and that's welcome on longer stretches of straight roads.

A nice 300 km or so trip to Mt Baw Baw with two mates (one on a brand new Aprilia Caponord 1200) for lunch. Great day for a ride nice temps some cloud cover so not too much sun and good dry country roads. The only things we had to avoid were heaps of leaf litter and fallen branches from the last few days weather.
Didn't take a single photo on the ride but when I got home the Ducati was out so a grabbed a his and hers shot.

Took my wife out for her very first ride as a passenger.  This didn't work out quite the way I expected.  She kept saying, "This is fun!  I'm having a wonderful time!  Can we ride a bit farther?" 

What a catastrophe!  If I can't find some way to convince her that riding is unpleasant, I may never be able to ride solo again   :002:

Reminds me of my mate with the new Caponord. He got his wife out on his Honda for the first time for a short lunch ride a while ago then three or four weeks ago she came on the back on a longer ride. They were only going to do half the ride but ended up doing the whole thing with her being extremely happy. He's been eyeing the Caponord for a while but wasn't sure of the reaction from the finance department so he took her the the dealer and went for a two up test ride. She told him to buy it half way through the ride!

Run out to Devizes yesterday, through Tidworth and Upavon, with my mate on his Explorer. A bit wet and very windy especially across across the plain! Coming back up the steep hill from Upavon to RAF Trenchard Lines I opened the throttle and overtook a Fiesta and the knack end went all squirrely and I lost power (realised the TC must have kicked in)  :156: :156: Must have hit a patch of diesel or something, a buttock clenching moment, but the TC must have helped me out as I then continued past and all was well.

Flipping no where  :023:  Storm Frank is having a laugh with 80-100 km/h winds, gusting over 130.  It's heading off and is being closely followed by Storm Gertrude, and she doesn't seem to be in a good mode either.

I took the Tiger out for a 265km ride through "De Ardennen".  The sun was there and the small roads were almost empty. I enjoyed the ride and the beautifull views of Dinant and "De Maas".

Quick 100 mile round trip to Blackpool and back!
Up the Golden Mile from south shore to Fleetwood then back down the A585 and home. Not a cold day 8.5°C with blustery, southerly winds. Missed all the downpours, but drove through lots of standing water and spray, so gave the Tiger a good rub down on my return.  :152:

Nice to be back out on the tiger  :001:

Wind had dropped, the sun came out and I went for a 40mile ride passing Lings of Watton on the way. Best way to warm the bike up, none of this warming it up in the garage!! Launch of the new Triumph range on 11th but not till 8pm - nearly my Horlicks time!!  :187:

Gave me the chance to check out my new Shark Evolution helmet. Very impressed and much quieter than my old Multitech. Loved riding with the chin guard in the open position, it just clips out of the way right at the back of the helmet. It is lighter as well but the dropdown sun visor was not really dark enough with the very bright and low sun, might have to add some darker film.

Hope this is a sign of an early spring - yes!!

Picked up my XRx in late January.

Due to weather and flu season getting to know the new Tiger has been very limited.

Was able to put 33 miles on it yesterday on the back roads of north central Pennsylvania.

Temps dipped to 19 F (-7 C).

When riding in this weather you can get some strange looks from four wheel operators.

However, found one of our favorite ice cream shops buried out in the country that had closed has reopened under new ownership.

Found the winter riding gear works pretty good!!

God bless!!

Couldn't resist a ride out in the good weather today!
115 mile round trip via Southport, Lytham St Annes & Blackpool. A brief stop off for a cuppa at Silcock's pier café (Southport) where there was at least another 70 thirsty bikers enjoying a rare glimpse of winter sun. Temperatures maxed at 6.5°C, down to 5°C on the return leg, so made good use of the heated grips.

Did nearly 300 miles yesterday with a few of the SW Crew and similar temperature, 3.5 during one stage and 7 max. Had the XRt heated grips on full nearly all day and reinforced my preference for real term efficiency of heated gloves, the grips are bloody useless, never felt hot at any stage, although Rozzer says his XRx ones can get too hot, so maybe a huge manufacturing tolerence issue? Priority now to fit the battery leads for my gloves and boot insoles by next week ends ride.

I must have gotten lucky with mine and I agree, there does appear to be a huge variation going by some of the comments here.
First time I tried the grips (last April) on a crisp evening drive around Fleetwood, I had to turn them down, as I also found them to be too hot on max setting at 50mph or less. I'm wearing a pair of Spada Junction WP textile gloves with a separate merino wool liner glove and they felt toasty on the motorway today. I had the grips set to max due to a blustery  :190: northerly, but again, as soon as I got back on the 'A' roads I had to turn them down.

Nipped on over the Santa Cruz mountains to check out the big surf that was supposed to hit the coast this weekend.  I only rode 150 miles or so, and it was a day too late to watch the big long-period swell, but it was great to get out on a warm February day.  It's been a tough winter here in California.  We've had weeks when the temperatures plummeted to the low 50s!

If the rest of the world was like this, the manufacturers of heated grips would go out of business. 

There might, however, be a market for refrigerated grips in the summer...

This uk owner is burning up in Cambodia at the minute. We had 34degrees in Angkor Wat end of last week, then it hit 37 in Kampot over the weekend.
Just arrived back in Phnom Penh and its 33 at the minute, about to have lunch.

Unfortunately the tiger is 7000 miles away in my garage.

I popped over the border to Siam Reap last March. It was in high 30's/ low 40's. Too hot to ride IMO. We went on the bike December 2014 , crossed at Chon Chom border as there is no problems there. A great place for a weekend away (about 550k round trip for us)

My first proper ride and and my impressions of my recently purchased 2011 Roadie

Those that saw my Newbie post will remember I am a fair weather rider who's other Machine is a Zzr 1400
Well the Zzr has gone to the Son that won't move out and he has been bugging me all week to go out for a few hours this weekend - well brave sole that I am and his constant whinging saw me brave the extreme elements of the Midlands yesterday with enough layers on to combat the death inducing weather
So for what it's worth my impressions of stepping off one of the most powerful motorcycles ever built which I have owned and loved for 6 years on to the Tiger

Despite getting so cold I will probably die of hyperthermia before I finish this 🌴
What have I been missing !
I did own a gs1200 for few years before the Zzr so understand why folks ride Adventure style machines but I've got to say the Tiger gives you what the Gs gave me in bucket loads
And after swoping bikes with my Son for the return trip home yesterday couldn't wait to get off my old loved Zzr back on to the Tiger
I won't attempt to describe the differences as you guys will know a little more about the Tiger than me but one thing I said yesterday was the Tiger is so forgiving
When at a quick pace yesterday along some country roads a few times being a bit rusty and it being arctic conditions I picked the wrong line into a corner
If I did that on the Zzr and attempted to correct it the Zzr would not respond kindly almost to the point that once you have picked your line the Zzr decides that that's were it will stay and no amount of pulling , pushing or sometimes praying will change it
The Tiger simply goes where you point it
I described it yesterday as a big happy Motocross bike which my lad agreed with once we swapped over

So first ride out of the way loved it -great machine - very happy with my choice and back in the garage where it belongs until the Sun comes up or I fit some of the array of accessories I keep drooling over

See you in the summer
Wayne

I'm organising a charity run, along with a mate of mine, for a local Aus charity called GriefLine. The run will take place on 17th April and we are hoping for about 50 bikes.
So today we tried out the route. Left Melbourne via Lysterfield, up through Emerald, Gembrook, Launching Place then Yarra Jcn. We stopped there for a bit and then went on to Noojee via Poweltown and back via Neerim and the F'way home. About 230km round trip and some fantastic roads with great twisties and possibilities for speed (not that we did at all LOL). At one point got passed by some "maniacs" on sports bikes who really knew how to tear it up.
Anyway, that was my ride on my Tige today and it was great.
If there is anyone in Vic reading this, who would like to come on 17th April and support a good cause, please let me know. We would be delighted to see you on the day.
Cheers, Bill.

Took a short ride this morning, only 40 miles, out to Tavistock and then over into Cornwall to Kit Hill, a Sunday morning bikers meeting cafe. Lovely bright sunny day but a cool temperature. After a full fried breakfast and mug of coffee I popped up to the top of the hill for a pic, damn blowy and really cold though. It is the chimney from the old pump house of the mine and the highest local point in Cornwall I believe.

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=i965.photobucket.com/albums/ae137/steviep762/Tiger%20800/Kit%20Hill%201.jpg)

I tried to get a clear picture but the sun was so bright it caused a haze, but on a good day the view in all directions is huge. On a perfect day it is possible (the River Tamar running from the left) to see, right of centre, Plymouth Sound Breakwater .... 23 miles away.

Are you talking about the road that runs from Panoche south through New Idria?  That's on my list of Places To Investigate.  I headed that way last year after filling up at that "This is your very last chance for gas... ever!" station in Tres Pinos, but turned around when I was getting close to half a tank, because I wasn't sure if I'd find another station ahead... ever.  There's some serious Mad Max country in there.  Awesome.

Yes!   Los Gatos Creek Rd & Coalinga Rd (Coalinga Rd merges with 25 around Bitterwater )   I carry spare gas cans when I head into that area.

Got it back from being repaired after I was knocked off six weeks ago, so nice to ride after the horrible Honda NC750 I had on loan. Hello heated jacket and grips once again, oh how I have missed you - I don't think they have fitted the right version Oxford grips though and one of the frame bungs I added is missing, need a better look at lunchtime.

Zip a dee doo dah ... :001:

it came with Pirelli Scorpion Trail but they're coming off this week, cos they're dire on tarmac (especially wet tarmac) and no better than a good road tyre in lanes.
IMHO "mock" off road tyres are a fashion accessory, 5% off road 95% on road ? what's that all about ? would rather have a decent 100% road tyre, so Pilot Road 4's are going on.

Well hopefully this will post correctly. I actually thought of you folks in UK when riding down the beach here. This is by Fort Stevens at the wreck of the Peter Iredale. It's about an hour and a halfs riding from my door. Wondering if you have any places that are similar?(https://cdn.tt.tiger800.co.uk/a023984db1dab59aa3c5bb9c94d858c2.jpg)

Yup.
Pendine sands in Sth Wales.
About an hours ride from where I live and the site of many land speed records/tests over the years.

Nice, we don't have races on ours though. Speed limit is 25 miles per hour although I have been known to maybe exceed that a "little bit". Even have an artillery range at Fort Rilea which shuts down access so very similar.

This is about 20 mins ride from my residence.
Got quite exiting around here a few years back.
(Kuwait, Iraq etc).
Loads of live fire training.
The sky's were filled with the crack of jet strafing runs and the thunder of afterburners.

Yesterday, I did a 90 mile circuit of the "white roads" of the Peak District (the unclassified stuff) and what a treat it was. :028:

The route was put together by a biker neighbour (KTM1050 rider) Like me, he's been riding around the Peak District for years.

It included some of my favourite roads plus some I hadn't done before. It's a gem of a route and a possible candidate for a Mini Meet event sometime. All tarmac, but not always in great condition, narrow in places and some mud and gravel to watch out for. One or two faster sections plus some unusual bits including a ride through a farmyard and a village main street that is a ford  :064:  Some of the best scenery I 've seen on a single afternoons ride. One to be shared for sure  :152:

A nice 140 mile round trip around inland North Wales yesterday!
Down the A5104 from Chester, then a blast down the A542 (Horseshoe Pass) with a short break at the Ponderosa café, before the return trip along the A5. Great day and lots of bikers doing the same.

Met up with fellow riders from a charity I'm involved with at Yondermans café in the Peak District, had a hearty breakfast and some banter and we headed out to Monsal Head and then on to Matlock for ice cream.

Cracking day out, it was bloody cold first thing but turned out lovely in the end. A good 12 hours and 2 tanks of petrol.

Fab day.

Rode to Destination Triumph at Guildford for Tfest. Didn't know which bike to try (so much great choice) and ended up taking the new Tiger 1050 Sport out for a ride and it was awesome. Light, nimble, smooth and powerful. Maybe my next bike.

Few days away in Cumbria, staying in Dearham near Maryport. Wife is getting reaquainted being a pillion after 35yrs of not being on bikes (basically since we got married) even though I've always continuously had a bike, the Tiger adventure style obviously appealed.

Boring day yesterday, motorway run up to Saltcoats near Kilmarnock in mixed weather to make a token few hours visit to the sister-in-law. But conveniently got the chore out of the way for another couple of years.

Better today, decent weather and a lesuirely beginners route of Dearham to Cockermouth, Buttermere and Honister Pass (& Honister Slate Mine), Borrowdale, B5289 up past Derwent Water to Keswick, Braithwaite, High Lorton, Cockermouth and back to Dearham.

I know Honister is only a taster of what's available but is probably the ideal easy starter and amazing scenery. Still some snow on the top of the higher fells, but it was a very pleasant 14 degrees mid afternoon. The obvious attractions of Windermere and Coniston are beyond this break as the convienient direct road is still out being repaired from the recent floods. I only have a couple of days as I have to get back to Plymouth for work Friday night as I couldn't get that 1 night off and have a continuous break until next Tuesday dayshift.  :023: :151:

I would add pics but don't have means without laptop to get pics from camera on to this tablet. Will definately be planning to come back to Cumbria a few times more in the near future.  :152:

   Hi all,
         Today I went to Chesterton Staffs to pick up my new Givi Airflow at Bargain Biker brands. Unfortunately my mates and I decided to avoid the M6 and go via Runcorn/Northwich/Middlewich/ Congleton it all went really well until we tried to get onto the A533 you would not believe how big a cock up the local roadworks planners have made in this area, they are changing/repairing most of the major access routes and local bridges all at the same time. A journey which would normally take maximum 5 minutes from the Runcorn bridge to the A533 took us approx. 55 minutes obviously nothing to do with the diversion signs sending us in totally the wrong direction (that's if you could see them because most of them were missing) thanks to the guy on the pushbike who told us that the signs were pointing in the wrong direction good man.
     A few minutes after getting his help we actually got to the A533 and made progress.
          We found the shop quite easily and I cannot recommend the owner John highly enough what a nice guy and very helpful! It was so nice to see the personal touch in this age of everything by the internet, they have a good stock of quality items and,importantly, very well priced. When I bought my Tiger as part of the deal I was supposed to get a good discount a a better screen than the rubbish standard Triumph one however this did not happen and I was not really happy with the, in my opinion, lack of customer care after buying an £9,000.00 bike being offered a 10% (you get this anyway after buying a new Triumph) and being asked to pay the delivery charge. There is a happy ending as John gave me a very good discou
