In June 2012 I returned from a fantastic trip to Turkey and back on my Tiger 1050, I rode out with my friend Mark on his GS1200 Adventure and I rode
back on my own. Outbound we rode through England, Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Turkey. 2,400 miles
including the alps and the Grossglockner pass.
The return trip from Turkey started with a ferry to Kos, ferry to Greece, ferry to Italy, ferry to Corsica (and back to Italy), Austria, Germany, Holland,
Belgium, France and England. Taking in Olympia, Pompeii, the Amalfi coast, Corsican Mountains, Lake Garda, the Dolomites and many alpine passes in
including the Stelvio. On my way through Greece I also met my new friend named Trifonas who lives near Dimitsana in southern Greece, He rides a Tiger
and through these pages he offered to meet up with me and ride through the Greek Mountains together. I stayed at his place and had a superb time White

Tiger 1050 on Tour 2012
|My Tiger 1200 performed faultlessly, Triumph owners would expect nothing less.
|Crossing the Causeway to Shell Island in NW Wales on my 1050. The tide was in and only 4 of us were brave enough to attempt it.
Mark's GS 1200 Adventure conked out in the middle due to water getting into the wiring. The AA got it going a few hours later.
