Comrades, I really fancy an Africa Twin, who wouldnt. However, I've been beguided by Triumph Tigers, I suspect its a mid life crisis thing.

I have the BMW R80RT for sale and will sell the 600 Transalp soon, I want to remain faithful but the Tiger has me in its power, in fact I'm besotted.

If I start to ride a tiger can I still play with my playmates on this site, or would I be persona non grata. I'm sure other members sometimes get these urges, am I 'on the turn'?

Comments please.

Hadn't realised "beastiality" was quite as rife on this site as it appears to be.........:D

Go on, Geoff, you know you want to.

They seemed to accept me before I had the Twin.

I have a Tiger and absolutely love it! It's up in the for sale section now, not for lack of fun though. I just couldn't pass up the chance to own Wee Jack's KTM, and two bikes is a bit much (for me). I've never experienced any bad spirit from forum members. In fact, I'm pretty sure that DC gets more of a ribbing now he's got the AT then he did when he had the Triumph (although that might be because he keeps falling off :D)

Every time I roll on the throttle it brings a smile to my face! It's a great tourer, does twisties with ease (helped by the fact it doesn't really care what gear it's in, it'll just go) and even does some single track.

Some people even take the bike off-road, but that's always been a bit much for me...

If you're near London, give me a shout and come have a look.

Forgive him, Geoff, he isn't from these parts. He didn't mean to insult you.

Buggles - Geoff followed me for a week round France earlier this year. I even let him sit on my Tiger. That was the start of the rot.

Having looked up Hartlepool on Google maps (I'm geographically challenged), I see your point Jacques! My humble apologies :D

That said, I have a stunning Tiger waiting for a new owner :D:D:D

And it's well worth travelling all the way from British West Hartlepool to see!

Buggles,

Nice bike just what I'm looking for, finance needs to be sorted first. If the BM goes this weekend I'll be in touch.

I especially like to proper TIGER colours.

Could be worse. I've taken a bit of a shine to a 1200 Trophy. Oof!

I got a Tiger about 5 weeks ago, we have bonded, it is like startiing to ride all over again. Loads of smiles even when I just look at in the garage, which I do every hour.
