    Hi everyone, I'm new to the Forum and see that I'm supposed to leave a message on the newbie section. I'm trying to find my way around so I'm hoping iv got this right. Had my 1050 sport for a year now. I love it! Bought it from a guy in Dundee and took it home further north.

    Hope you find the forum helpful. Didn't say if you had been lurking for the year.  Top each section check the sticky's out.  New to you tiger would have helped a while back.

    Look forward to pictures, especially with a trip report.
    Great to see the world with a locals eye and the great food.

    I'd never heard of the Isle of Lewis, had to enlist Google. Still not much luck with Soval Bends, but found Soval Lodge. I'm guessing you have rain once in a while and winter needs some wrapping up to keep toasty. Interesting part of the world to be a biker so I look forward to comments about where you ride and what you see. Welcome.

    Just found an interesting snippet: You have abundant carnivorous plants due to the many insects. And, temperatures are constant year-round. Amazing. If you don't have a loch-monster over there, then there truly isn't one!  :031:

    Apologies friends,
    I'm not coming to grips with the site format been trying to reply for ages then realised I had somehow logged out 🤷‍♂️...
    I've not been lurking I just decided to join this forum yesterday to see if folk can recomend a front paddock stand for my model.
    The Isle of lewis is a stunning place to live! And to ride, it's most definitely a bit damp generally but when the sun gets out it's fantastic. (Usually 3 days per year)🤣
    The soval bends are a couple of miles of twisty's that are very handy for scrubbing your tyres in 😜.
    This is my first triumph and like I said, I love it!
    We have lots of interesting things to see on Lewis & Harris including the Callanish stones and the Carloway broch. I'm not involved in the annual bike rally (midge biters rally) as I've stopped drinking but I do join them on the bike run on the saturday afternoon. If you ever get a chance to visit the isle of Lewis then take it...
    If you know you know!
