Hi Doug,

Tatty is good, specially when its a Tiger cub.

My first distance ride was on the back of my friends Honda CB 400 when I was 17. I had a Yamaha 90cc which definatly was not up to the trip. We traveled from Cardiff down to Plymouth, in January, in the freezing cold to visit his brother who was in college there. Had to stop before the Severn Bridge and take out all my clothes from the panniers and put them on, even that didn't help much. We had a great w/e in Plymouth. But I prefer it in the summer.

Happy riding in your beautiful part of the world.

Thanks. The great thing about getting older is that you can afford all the better riding gear....and tools....and spares. Stuff you could only dream about at 17.
