Hi, I have a Tiger 800 ABS Road and enjoy the roads of Scotland and also the roads of Europe, especially the Alps.

Hi it takes 1 day to Newcastle or Hull overnight ferry then another two days on way to Alps. I could do it quicker but it is better to enjoy the scenery on way there as opposed to a motorway dash!

Awright big mon!

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

Hello Red Tiger, I have an 800 Tiger also and live in South Carolina USA. I have lived in the UK and look forward to a road trip in the British Isles in the next couple of years. You mentioned riding in the Alps. Are you planning to go to the reunion in Austria later this year?

No I won't be going to Austria this year. Do you mean the Tridays in June? I would like to go to the Spanish Picos and/or Pyrenees this year hopefully :-)
