    Thinking about taking the Tiger for a ride out to Truro in the morning. Anyone interested?

    My GPS tells me where the nearest bakeries are.....:evil


    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    and the thought of fast flowing roads to a new bakery, :wings I set off before day break in freezing conditions on the 50km trek north to meet up and follow the potentially rewarding narrow line on his GPS.

    Walla!!! :clap

    The Sunrise Bakery Truro was found without effort :dg and as we waited to be served, I strangely had a flashback of how the early morning chill had effected me :lol3

    It turns out that Trev was wanting to better his skills on his new Tiger and what better way than have a fellow "opportunist" photographer along for added pressure :evil :rofl

    Ha! ha! ha! ......................... I made it this far :lol3

    Obviously the pressure of being caught on camera clearly works. :lol3

    Trev's bike & riding gear was spotless when we gone home.

    Thanks mate for a nice, easy for some, fun morning. :thumb

    Good to catch up with Trev & MB for a chat, check out the cat & it's a nice bit of gear.

    Cheers Terry

    Ha,ha,ha. Very funny MB. Yes, what was supposed to be all dirt ended up including a lot of mud. Great training for me and so far the Tiger is behaving itself and tracking well in all terrains...couple of heart in mouth moments later in the day, but knowing you we're nearby with a camera at hand kept me upright.......:lol3

    Great fun, easy miles and a delicious pastie and double shot coffee as well. Good to catch up with the old blokes on road bikes at Truro too. Liked the look of Tel's red chariot as well.

    The Tiger and I are getting along very well, but I suspect that conditions have to be good for the relationship to flourish.

    Photos to follow.....

    Thanks for a great day out.:clap

    As Kym said, neither of us wanted to stuff it up with the other there waiting with camera at the ready. We had a clean run because of that pressure!!!!:wink:

    Looks like a glorious day. Would have been freezing in the morning however.

    Never a good sign when a pilot chooses moist green grass as a higher traction option than the track. Well done keeping those big beasts upright the whole day...

    Let me know if your keen for a ride next Monday.....

    I'm trying to remember what I was thinking ........

    .......... "is that the Molly's Track nymph I can see" :sweeti

    .......... "if I don't look at it , it will go away" :dic

    .......... I'll wait here just in case he can't get through & catch the Kodak moments on the way back" :clap

    .........."I think from memory, Trev can read lips" :ken

    Actually Matt, it was Antarctic conditions first thing. I was trying my new Dririder jacket and pants and made a bad decision and left the thermal/waterproof liner out, thinking it would warm up quickly.......wrong!!

    Maybe I should have gone Klim goretex like you suggested??

    The pictures were only of the slow times, the other tracks were fast (old man speed) and dry in the main. We even did some single track - true!

    Next Monday is still iffy for me, it was late Saturday night when yesterday's ride became a possibility. I'll let you guys know.
