Hello all - From NC, USA

Hey fellow riders, I have joined this forum to research the Tiger 1050 as a possible replacement for my very much loved 98 Honda VFR 800. I am a college student at East Carolina and am from a small mountain town in western North Carolina. I've been riding a little over two years, and about 7,000 miles on my VFR in the last year+. I am an active member over at VFRDiscussion forums if any of you are familiar you may recognize my screen name. I hope to learn as much as possible about Triumphs from this forum!


Live to ride, ride to live.

Welcome and as "crazy city" is close to the good hills, you have a great back yard to play in. I am down the road from you but wander thru all the time heading to the mountains....if you see a BRG streak flying along I40 carefully watching for HP types and Burke co. Deputies, that will be me.
