Discussion in 'Australia' started by lentil, Nov 7, 2011.

?

The Tigers leave Melbourne on the 8th of Nov will they make it all the way round

  1. Yes they will blitz it in and look good doing it

  2. The tigers will make it but only just (assuming they can find enough lattes)

  3. Nah they wont make the border

  4. They aren't a "insert favorite bike" here so there is no way they can make it

  5. Who cares just show me photos of the carnage

    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!)

    I must be missing something here.
    Did they ever end up doing anything meaningful/remotely interesting with those bikes?
