There's White Tigers in Crete
on: 24 June, 2022, 09:50:43 PM
While on holiday in Crete this past week I saw a 2012 white tiger parked by the harbour in Agios Nicholaos.
About 20 mins later i met the owner in another side street. I spoke to him about his bike and he said he had owned it 4 years and it was the best bike he had owned.
I told him about the forum and he said he would look us up  :028:



Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE, 2019 Tiger Sport .... got there in the end.

Hi Tigermike

Did you rent a motorbike while in Crete?

Just prior to enlisting to the IDF, age 18 (iím now 56) a friend and myself sailed from Haifa to Crete

We hired, 2 Brand new Yamaha XT250 and had an amazing week!

We then sailed to Cyprus and hired 2 Suzuki 750 katanas and had another great week!

Itís a beautiful little island as I recall

RV90, XL250, XL500, GSX750ES, CB750SC, VT750, ST1300A...took a while...2012 Tiger 1050SE

No, unfortunately not as i was was with my family, yes its a beautiful island.
There are mostly mopeds and scooters on the island but i did see quite s few other bikes, honda transalps and africa twins etc. You definitely need a middle weight adventure bike for a lot of the roads. :001:

Ref Cyprus, i learned to ride there, i had a suzuki moped when i was 16 and then a DT125 yamaha for a short period before we went back to the UK. Roads are much better too.  :031:
