Hello from Yorkshire!

Hi all,

I've joined the forum as I've recently (Saturday, picking up today) a new Triumph Tiger 800 XCX. I previously owned a Triumph Speed Four, having passed my test earlier this year and unfortunately due to an (expensive) issue with the Speed Four, I've chosen to part-ex that bike for a new one.

Long and short of it was I had my eyes on a Speed Twin and was set on that but then thought about how I use my motorbike and what I'm interested in. My bike is my main/only source of transport and I use it to visit friends all over the country as well as locally and while the Speed Four was amazing fun, it was hard work over long distances and I thought the same would probably be for the Speed Twin. So started looking at other bikes, the Tiger sprung up and opened up a world of possibilities! So after a few days of sleepless nights of mulling which bike to get over and over, I took a Tiger out for a test ride, absolutely loved it and decided that was the one. I'm hoping to get up to Scotland, the Lakes, Wales over the next few months and do some riding on firetracks and some entry level off road. Really looking forward to it!

Cheers all!
