Merry Christmas & happy New Year

Well its certainly a nice calm, bright but cool day here in the Cherente South West France.  I will be getting set to ride my current bike shortly which is a Tiger 800XC which is my third Triumph in 6yrs.  I had the Tiger 1050, ran out of money renovating then sold it.  Did a contract in London and bought a GSR600 great little commuter bike, but unfortunately had a big smash and wrote the bike off.  Bought my second Tiger 800 (roadie) 14500 miles in little over a year a truly great bike, sold due to mileage.  Bought the XC not as friendly as the roadie.

Just started my new contract on the Suffolk coast so promised myself the Trophy no plans on purchase until the UK weather changes so will ride the XC until i am ready, maybe Triumph will do some changes if they are needed, don't think there are many if any? as far as I have read.

As I said getting ready to think about a nice motorcycle ride and give my bum a rest from riding my road bike (Giant carbon push bike) trying to burn several months of fat off after doing a 9 month piling contract in London.

Regards

Hi Spencer and   :400:

If there is anything you need to know to aid your decision there is a fantastic search function and also another user, Coco
nut has compiled an EXCELLENT A-Z of most common issues and solutions which you can find in the HOW TO forum pages I believe.

Other than that, just ask away! Someone will have an answer!
