Tenerife Tiger
« on: November 12, 2017, 10:22:22 AM »
We recently arrived in Tenerife having ridden over from the UK via Spain and ferry from Cadiz.
This bike is my 8th Tiger and although only just over a year old has already covered 30,000km.
We're lucky enough to spend our winters out here now and it seemed a good plan to bring it over.
The plan is to matriculate it into the Spanish registration system and keep it out here for a few years.
I hope to post a few photos of our Canarian adventures in the future.

Time flies by....and I forgot about this thread.
Finally got the ball rolling on getting my Tiger onto Spanish plates so will keep you posted.
And we got a little snow up on Teide at the moment  :018:

Looks like a great way to spend the winter!
Cheers, Ian

Teide recently received this winters first snowfall so a quick ride from 5m to 2350m asl seemed a good idea.
A chilly 6c up there convinced me my ventilated jacket was not a good choice! :001:

Pictures look fab - only been to Tenerife once many years ago and really enjoyed the mountain roads in a hire car - on a bike it must be amazing  !! Brillant - very jealous - well done  :002:

I just got back from a trip over to Gran Canaria.
Wow, there's some fantastic roads over there for biking.
Perhaps the most famous is the GC200, although the most dangerous section has now been closed off.
I rode most of the mountain roads, too many to list, everyone a gem!
Well recommended if you get the chance  :018:

Did you do the GC-605 that's like a mini alpine pass that drops around 500m in altitude with about 35 hairpins in about 5 kilometres? Fabulous road but you do have to concentrate a bit!
