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.

Return leg over 3,000 miles from Turkey to

then Austria, Germany, Holland, Belgium

After buying and riding new Triumph Tigers for 15 years 955i, 1050, 1200 Explorer & 800 XCx I fancied a change so I have purchased a 3 year old KTM 1190R with less
than 3,000 miles on the clock. I have ridden 17,000 miles on the KTM so far but I do miss owning a Triumph. I have also purchased a Husqvarna TR650 Strada as my
winter hack to replace my aging Pegaso I have added new sub-domains for my latest bikes. When COVID is over I want to try the Tiger 900 Rally Pro which seems to
have everything I need, the KTM 890 Adventure is another possibility. It is good to have great new bikes to chose from.
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 (the name was changed to Aabaco now back to Yahoo) but for the last 17 years there has been a bug in my site . If I make a change to the "Navigation Bar"
Yahoo Sitebuilder will randomly delete text from site pages. I have had to 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, Yahoo Sitebuilder has just cut text from my page in a random fashion, this is infuriating.
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

I have now completed the
process to increase the size of all
the pages on my website to 1366
wide, this will bring this website
in-line with the current format.
Yahoo have announced that SiteBuilder will not be supported after 31 March 2021, I have no idea if I can keep
updating this website after that date.
