In May 2013 I made my second 6,000 mile
round trip to Turkey on my Tiger Explorer
In May 2012 I rode my Tiger 1050 from the
UK to Turkey and back. 2,800 miles
outbound through England, Holland,
Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia,
Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Turkey.

After 3 years and 26,000 miles I sold my Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200. In July 2015 I part exchanged it for a shiny new Tiger 800 XRX. I have now owned 70
motorcycles starting with my BSA Bantam D7 when aged 15.

A message from the founder
I created this site in 2004 using Yahoo Site Builder, I had no intention of naming this site after me, I was on a slow connection (256k remember those days), my screen was not refreshing
so I must have pressed the OK button too early (I apologise to the other Adrian Molloy's, what is done is done). At the time I had been making good use of other biking sites run by
enthusiasts like me. There was an excellent site for the Honda Africa Twin run by Raymond Fels from Holland and the BigBlueCat site for the early Triumph Tigers, the latter closed
unexpectedly so I started to develop my own site to focus on the Tiger 955i. There are some good Triumph Tiger User Forums on the WWW and I have followed a number of excellent
threads but they tend to get hijacked and go off topic so quickly. Some posts are completely inaccurate and for my taste too many posts are negative. I like my bikes, in fact I like any bike
and I prefer to be positive about them so I try to make this site positive and upbeat.
Over the last 12 years adrianmolloy.com has grown much quicker than I thought possible. Initially I concentrated on my Tiger 955i which I replaced with a Tiger 1050. Tiger 1200 Explorer
and now a Tiger 800 XCx. My site has had over 1,100,000 page hits and I have received over 700 emails from all over the world which I enjoy responding to. Unfortunately there is some
sort of gremlin which causes chunks of text to go missing, for example I publish changes to 2 pages and text goes missing from other pages that I have not touched. Unfortunately I may not
discover the missing text for months. To get round this I have split the site into smaller sub domains, now the gremlin seems to be restricted to Explorer 1200, Tiger 800 and
Miscellaneous Bike Pages.
