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.

STOP PRESS: I sold my 2015 Tiger 800XCx after 3 great years. So what I bought to replace it???? What this space.
STOP PRESS: Still loving my new MV Agusta Brutale 990R. See MV pages
STOP PRESS: In Jan 2017 I bought a 1995 Aprilia Pegaso 650 as a winter hack so I have a new Pegaso sub domain.
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 far too 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 13 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 750
emails from all over the world which I enjoy responding to.
I still use Yahoo Sitebuilder (Now sold on to Aabaco) but for the last 10 years there has been a bug in my site . If I make a change to the Toolbar Sitebuilder will randomly delete text from
site pages. I split my site into sub domains and I have more or less eradicated the bug which I now know is caused by the Advanced Navigation Bar Editor. If a text box contains gibberish it
is not my fault. I would not recommend Sitebuilder, unfortunately I am stuck with it. Yahoo have a history of pioneering great ideas, not developing them properly and them selling them off
when rival products overtake them e.g Yahoo Groups was the fore runner to Facebook, Yahoo Photos was the fore runner to all the Photo sites/Apps and is now Flickr

Wow! I had over 1,150,000 page views on this site up to May 2017 then Yahoo Web Hosting
annoyingly took the page hit counters away. Thanks for visiting
