Hi
on: June 10, 2021, 08:36:04 AM
Chris Salmon. New to Triumph, bought new Tiger XCX 1200 recently. Have been riding on and off since 1976. Passed test in 1978 driving a figure of 8 round the blocks in Eastbourne followed by a couple of questions. Only done short journeys so far.  Just run in now so looking forward to a decent ride.

Welcome Chris, I’m pretty new to the Tiger but not to Triumph.  I seem to remember my test was a ride around the block only seeing the examiner when I pulled away and stopped! 
If you ever get down to Cornwall we have some great roads here!

I’ve ridden the coast road down from Brighton and it’s a great trip, you could alway trailer the Tiger behind!
