Howdy from Spain!
on: 23 June, 2021, 08:11:47 PM
Hi everyone!  I just bought a soon-to-be-delivered 2020 Tigger Sport in Silver--my 3rd Tiger after a '95 885 in red, then a '06 955i in black.  Just waiting on the factory luggage to be installed, and for the bike to be sent from Barcelona to me here in Valencia. (I moved here 3 years ago from California for retirement).  Already ordered HEED crashbars, and will soon add more farkles like heated grips, centerstand, etc.

I'm a long-time rider, having owned many bikes over 40+ years on 2 wheels (street, track, and some dirt).  I'm hoping to learn from the collective wisdom, and share my own if able.

Thanks for letting me join the club!
Erica

Yeah, my wife and i are burned out intellectual property lawyers, who escaped to Spain for the lower cost of living. Coz Spain is basically the California of Europe, right? Both have lots of Spanish-speakers and beaches and sun and wildfires...

While I'm still waiting on my Tiger to be delivered (nothing happens quickly in Spain), just a few pics of some of my other bikes from days gone by.

Yeah, I'm about 6'1 (185cm) with a 34" (86cm) inseam so tall bikes fit me well.   :001:
