Fabulous pics of the mighty Tigers. If Triumph were wise, they would use these photos in their advertising copy.

There's just something about this picture, it captures the feeling of really being "out there" to me. I love it!

What's a Tiger 800XC look like in the wild? Check out Cheryl & Leslie recently posted a whole suite of photos from their trip through Alaska and Canada's Northwest Territory. Great photos, ladies!

Why is it too late?
Going on 68 yrs. old now but I just spent the past two days re-reading everything and I'm not kidding, I think I spent at least 15 hrs. doing that. So, thanks once more for a great ride, we sure had fun didn't we?

Good advertising

Those mega Tiger pics are great. Send the link to Triumph with an invoice, they provide mega advertising opportunities...

Thumb Thank you!

Cheryl and Leslie,

I have enjoyed following the two of your on your journey through your pictures and ride reports. Phenomenal scenery, and reading of your adventures makes me start believing that a cross country trek by bike is not such a far off reality for me. It helped me quite a bit as a complete rookie rider to read your discussions about your gear and issues with the bikes and how you resolved them. I have always thought I wanted a Beamer, but with your report, I am thinking maybe a Triumph Tiger is the way to go.

Good deal!

JIll
