Hello from a Newby
on: November 21, 2020, 11:53:20 PM
Hello Tiger 1200 Furum

Quick hello from a new member  :158:
from what I've read so far this group seems to have a good selection of knowledgeable and approachable members... hopefully I can add to this in some small way!

I ride a 2018 Gen3 XCa, and although only get out on high days and holidays I have had a couple of decent trips in continental Europe, and played both on and off-road  so can vouch for the Tigers capability (although IMO a too heavy for any serious trail riding).

Any way, nice to meet you All,
Cheers

Hello XCaTel / All, thanks for the welcome.
Pictures work for me - not much of a reader  :028:
Any pics in particular, or just Tiger related?  :001:

Very fond of the emerald isle - spent a fair time over the west coast, and have friends in Derry. Was meant to be visiting the NW200 this year, but lockdown v1 put an end to the  :003:  hopefully it'll be on next year !

Any pics of where your Tiger takes you really, some shots from the NW200 next year would do for a starters.

Post card from Vielha, Spain - did a bit of trail riding during a trip in 2019.
Tiger did very well, although a bit heavy for some of the more technical stuff  :152:
