What did you do to your Tiger today?

People have asked for this thread. If it turns out to be popular I'll change it to a Sticky to keep it up top. Now lets make it popular!

Mine sat in the garage while it poured Tigers and dogs.

Purchased LED headlights and turn signal bulbs for mine. They were supposed to be delivered today, but got delayed.

Nothing. I plowed the snow from around the door of the shed where it is stored for the winter (the winter that just won't quit). It started snowing Friday night and quit Monday AM. Now we are getting more light snow. Snow is forecast for Wednesday again. I rode it about 100' since last November. I have an intense motorcycle itch to scratch.

Rode it to work, just like everyday! I have been seeing a guy on a 1200 heading up the 5 from San Diego to Carlsbad most mornings now.

Removed the barn door sized Cee Bailey screen and put on the warm weather Palmer adjustable on the 06 Tiger.
Now if only the weather would cooperate I'd take some pics and be in business!

I walked around it and smiled.....the weather has really delayed spring, only two short rides so far. I’ve put on 100km since bringing it home....but some warmer weather appears to be on the way.

Took it to the dealership to have it looked it. On Saturday she decided to make getting into neutral difficult. Even the techie was confused as to what it could be and now I'm just waiting to get her back.

Hi ,

Over the last week I cleaned out the air filter, cleaned the spark plugs, checked the shims, balanced the throttle bodies, put a new rear tyre on, overhauled the brakes with new fluid and pads, changed the fork oil to a mixture of 10w and 15w to make a perfectly handling 12w, and changed the oil and filter.

Then, as it was a lovely sunny spring day, I went for a good long ride on some beautiful twistie A and B roads in rural Weardale to make sure all was well. Had some chocolate cake and a coffee in a cafe, and raced a Lotus Evora on the way home. He was crap in the corners but quick on the straights, where he got away from me a bit. Following him in a haze of petrol fumes I over took him coming into a small town and gave him a thumbs up and nod of approval for a good bit of fun and mutual appreciation - roll on summer !!

Safe riding.
Regards,
Graeme.
