The old 990 would do that, the Tiger is only 95 hp & that's at stupid rpm.
No, the Tiger is an old man's bike for those who have lost the will to live.........

I know you can turn off the sports bike mode when on the dirt on these new 1190's to dial back some of that 148 HP. But shit, it would be tempting to leave it on and go for a blast through the gorges. I think Emuooz is the man to give that a try

Yes Kipo I would be delighted to give one of those things a right flogging up Brachina gorge.

Why do the new adventures look like the old Tigers? More rounded fairings even gone to a 19" front wheel as a compromise for road / off road handling ability.

Flinders in August

We've got a few of us heading to the Flinders for Friday 16th August, staying at the Angorichina Village dormitory until Monday morning...$24 per head, per night. Have about six attending and would like to make it around 10. Some are riding up Thursday and staying at Quorn enroute, whilst others are riding the whole way Friday and some are driving with trailers.

All other arrangements, food or refreshments are your own problem.


First in, best dressed.
Plans are firming up.

Thursday 15th August....PBee, Concorde, myself and possibly another member of the QSC riding from metro Adelaide to Quorn. Chance that Phil S (mate of mine) and Kipo might also attend and Mayor of Flinders will hopefully conduct an official ceremony at the Austral Hotel. Accommodation at the Austral.

Friday 16th August.....Bernie will be riding or driving up to Ango with DR, whilst Paul L and Paul B will be riding up. Barneyrubble will be driving up and towing his Yammie.....has offered to carry supplies for attendees. It'sGotToBeYellow and his pillion (with tea towels) are contemplating riding up to Ango on Friday as is Kipo.

Saturday 17th - Sunday 18th. Various riding options. Some will head back Sunday afternoon.

Monday 19th....Pbee, self and anyone remaining will ride/drive back to metro.

Still some seats/beds available.

PS. Dave at Ango has run out of the tonnes of railway sleepers that PBee, Bikerbilly and Emu left there in April, so we might have to find our own firewood if we want a warming fire - to that end, I can send up a chainsaw with Barney Rubble and/or we can gather some sleepers from the same spot that PBee went to.
