OK, first free bank holiday weekend with the bike, and the first long trip since getting her. A perfect opportunity!
In the original planning stages, I was thinking of going camping in Wales, but I’ve already ridden up there twice in the past few years, so why not try a new direction. East seemed a logical choice, my brother lives near Salisbury and my brother-in-law (to be) lives in London, with a camping spot along the way back, I’ve got a perfect round trip.
So the Tiger is familiar territory to me. I had the exact same model two years ago, so I don’t quite consider this a new toy. That being said, I do have some new things to try out, chief among them being a proper camera (Nikon something-or-other). See, up until now, I’ve never taken more than a smartphone with me to take photographs on my trip, and I feel as though I’m missing out on some great opportunities. I am a total novice when it comes to photography though, so who knows how it will turn out!
Other new kit I’ll be trying out:
- Triumph Tiger Tank Bag
- Interphone Tour Headset
- Ultimateaddons Phone case, mount and charger
Yes it’s not a lot, but it’s enough to get me started…
