Amazing what you can buy in a can these days! Just hope she ain't too pissed off when she comes out...




I'm pretty OK with the fastest, and maybe even the strongest, but paste..?

any suggestions on tire sources? Thinking of the Heidy K60's for a change. Replacing TKC's too often.

Good deal and fast/free shipping from chaparral.com- not sure if they sell the hiedies but it'd. Be worth a look.

Hi,

My name is John Grabe and I live in Eugene. I am planning to purchase a 2001 or 2 Tiger. As soon as I come across one nicely farkeled and within striking distance I'll be in. Any alerts on good buys will be appreciated.

How can I get on an alert list for when you all have a meet-up? Would love to look at bikes and get to know some folks.

Have fun,


John

You can subscribe to this thread I suppose as an alert, but the normal weekly meetup is @ 5:00 at The Old Pad (34th ish & Amazon).

You should be okay. It says "Klean Strip!". I bet it would.

Wednesday, yup, Old Pad. 4:55 ish to around 5:05 seems like most nights- busy folks with extracurricular stuff...

couple Tiger owners there, past, present and future (I'd buy another'n) just show up early and don't blink; it's a no nonsense speed date kinda meetup.

Oh, and Dakez (Simian over at the Latus Hog shop) is a Triumph guy with connections- good egg too.

I'll post a more complete ride report, complete with pictures, soon. However, here's a preview.

Had a great ride, especially the Blue Mountains!


Somewhere along Howland Hill Road...




That's the nephew with, yes, an R1200RTP that he bought just for this trip. He's quite the wheelerdealer, says he'll sell it for a profit when he gets home. My brother rides an ST1100.




Somewhere along 395...



Still grinning...

Lets get the young man a KLR. He'll be cursing the brakes, hating the suspension and wondering why the thing won't wheelie......

.... but it'll be running!

It was nice to have met a few of you tonight at the meet-up. (I'm a first-timer). Good folks with stories and thoughts worth listening to. It reaffirms my faith in humanity, as in... If I'm ever in trouble, I know that there's someone here that will say,"Yep, you're in trouble." Then, go about helping to find a way out.

Cheers!

Chris
