Gday from Sydney Australia
« on: 06 December, 2018, 12:21:37 AM »
Glad to join in to learn more about this model.

Going to get my secondhand 2012 Tiger 1050 SE ABS today.
Looking to use it for 95% road and 5% gravel/fire trails .
Perhaps going to change the tyres to something a bit knobbly if available.
I hope the bike can handle it.

 :401: You will love the beast....ask me how I know  :015: although even with enduro tyres it will not be much good on fire trails, good gravel is not an issue. Take a look at the Tiger Streak 2019 thread, maybe you can make it in March....a lot of fun  :031:

Oh come on Paul, got to be some downsides for living in a national park! At least you're not surrounded this time of year by bloody southerners complaining about the lack of tea shops ....  :002:

If it's any consolation I saw the sun once this week (think it was the day before yesterday) where I am. At least it's not raining today ....

Ha, started raining Tuesday afternoon, stopped at 10am today. It's only a lull.

We had a run out in car couple of weeks ago, pulled into the big car park in Castleton, full of bleddy townies weren't it. Not one space left. I worked there many years ago, lovely trip to work & back, but not in winter, one evening I went up a snow covered Winnats pass sideways slithering in me Ford Capri, what a relief when I got to the top. If I'd stopped I'd have slid all the way back down.
