Smile I've gone and bought a Triumph!

Hi all,

After having had a load of Japanese bikes and an Italian mistress... a Guzzi.

I have gone and bought a low mileage 2007 Triumph Tiger 1050. Really pleased with the bike as it has plenty of power, stable, comfortable and clean.... Well it was because since I picked it up there has been pretty much non-stop rain. Especially irritating as I have stopped commuting to work on the train to use the bike all-weathers... great!

This is my first experience of a british bike, sorry but I cut my teeth on RD350LC's and the like. However so far I am really impressed. The Guzzi was a deliberate move to get away from sports bikes, mainly due to age and a persitent neck problem... Now I have the Tiger I have the best of both worlds.

I am keen to get a bit more involved in the bike than just jumping on and riding to work or doing a bit of touring. All though so far I seem to be opening my wallet far too frequently, adding accesories and updating my kit...

Any hoo. That's me.



Who said it could rain?
