Talking Tigers go round OZ.......

Gday all,

some of you already are aware but Philip and crew will be riding a couple of triumph tigers around OZ over 12 months....it wont be in a straight line, It wont be for charity, it will be to see big bikes punted around all sorts of places and see how they go!!

I will be posting photos as they get to me from phils mobile and phil will post picks as we go!!

The first leg is melbourne to bathurst with phil & Robin box (Aka Box head - in phils parlance) and I think they are in melbourne tonight??

Next leg in Janruary will be Great Dividing Ranges with rumours abounding that a certain inmate who rides a scrambler and lives in canberra will be partly reponsible for some of the leg along with Burren rider for the northern section. - I am also keen to revisit the racecourse (weerikembe NP and cells road in blistering australia day heat )

So hopefully tommorrow the photos will start flowing (I have a couple but I left them on my desktop @ work - so will post them up when I get back!)

looking at the "Tiger track record", there's not much to break...

maybe NOW they'll even get a scratch on them...? (the bikes I mean... not the record... I mean... who doesn't like rap music... )

The 2011 "poking hornets nest" award; for services to the sport of "shit stirring", special topic; "can of worms; the opening of"....

goes to...

SYDADVGS....

Did they ever end up doing anything meaningful/remotely interesting with those bikes?
