Where did you go on your Tiger Today?
on: July 14, 2021, 09:22:57 PM
Trying to kick off a new thread to encourage a bit more forum photo activity. Where did you ride to today, a wet ride to a café down the road or a blast through the Rockies? Who did you meet and what other bikes did you see along the way? Here is my first shot to kick it off. Pictures always a bonus!

After four months off the road (awaiting parts) it was a delight to use the Tiger for a work commute today. Of course I had to take the long way, through Wicklow Mountains. Long parts of the route have a pretty bad bumpy and undulating roads, the Tiger with its long travel suspension creamed it.

I’ve done a few decent, and really enjoyable, wild camping trips on my xcx so I’ll get something up when I get a minute 👍

I did a short overnight moto-camp with my brother up in the Utah woods this weekend. My phone wasn't cooperating so I couldn't grab any pics of the site itself. But it was a fairly technical doubletrack atv/dirtbike trail to get there, so I'm still recovering from wrestling the big Tiger through it all.

Rode across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to visit a buddy of mine. Got a chance to try out the 360°camera.

Brilliant footage - loved the soundtrack also.

I had watched another 360 clip a few days back - some guy doing part of the Stelvio - I couldn't watch it made me real nauseous!

Landed in Santander, Spain this morning. Will be touring northern Spain with my wife as pillion. It’s good to be able to do so.

As our lockdown ended on Tuesday I got a proper chance this weekend to go for a run with the new Delkavic exhaust.
I love the way it looks and sounds.
While cruising about yesterday I stood for a while, as you do, and noticed when I sat down that the wind noise dramatically increased just before my arse hit the seat.
I’ve been running a summer screen since I got the “Mistress” in December.
So on a whim this morning I took the short screen of and went for a ride, if it had been sh#t I’d have come back and replaced the screen and continued on my way.
But screenless was great,  no wind noise at all now.
There has been no buffeting but some wind noise, but now it is the same sitting or standing.
Very happy with the result.
I ended up at Das Kaffeehaus in Castlemaine.
Great weekends riding, sun out for both days.
