Hi,

I picked up my 2008 tiger 1050 on Thursday and am thrilled with it so far. There are a few niggles I need to sort, mainly an issue with the fuel gauge, but for now I'm just enjoying getting to know the bike! Looking forward to reading and contributing.

Whereabouts in Ireland you live? Been over for a couple of holidays in the liquid sunshine, great atmosphere everywhere we stopped. Why is the Guinness so much better?

They were probably Cork imports if they were into Murphys or Beamish, but you never know....Beamish is cheap so some lads will drink anything to save 30p a pint :D

Oh,  they drank everything and anything. Thursday nights (Pay Day) over Islington was always fun :087:  Now you mention it Cork also rings a bell, but then there were thousands, biggest construction site in Europe at the time
