Greetings from Jockistan
« on: February 05, 2014, 01:02:47 PM »
Having been a Tiger man for many years, the idea of "Luxury Touring" is a relatively new concept to me. In the interests of maintaining marital bliss  :192: with my very infrequent pillion, I have recently traded in my 09 Roadie (Tiger 1050) for an SE after a conjugal test ride and getting the directorial  :152: So if all goes to plan I will be taking ownership of an ex demo SE at the end of June.

Although the Roadie has gone, I believe some fortunate person has already taken it and I hope it gives them as much reliable fun as it did me, I still have other options  :164: so I won't be totally bikeless until I get the SE. I've only recently relocated to Scotland as my operational base but only spend a bit less than 50% of the time there and I'm currently overseas for work, which will explain the following.

Other bikes:-
1995 Tiger 885 (Steamer) in Caspian (Scotland), this bike was originally sold in Singapore where I picked it up (after it had been molested) and it made such sad eyes at me I just couldn't leave her behind.
1995 Tiger 885 (Steamer) in Caspian (Scotland), this was a runner I bought at a good price, intending to keep it for spares as they become harder to find, but it was too good for that and she seemed perfect for a sidecar project.
2011 Thruxton in Red (Scotland), this was my second (hooligan) bike in Singapore that I picked up for a good price (by Singapore standards that is) and after a few mods, that just had to go in the container as well  :112:
2012 Tiger 800 XC in Irn Bru Orange (Singapore), This one I have left in the care of a mate who is still in Singapore, so that I can go for a blast when I'm there and he gets to use it when I'm not there -  :028: sorted.

I'm looking forward to reading up on the Trophy, they are all different (that's why I need a few dear  :164: ) hope to catch up with some others one day  :821:
