Hi Africajim and welcome to the site. I see you've already found your way to the forum, nice one. Five Africa Twins? I'm impressed. Out of interest... Tiger 955 or Varadero? What's your pref?

Hi Alun, horses for coures sir, the Tiger's a great one up ride but for all round two up touring, one up scratching and hard tracks the Varadero is the better bike. Build quality is around the same, suspension on the Honda's superior. I take Fiona with me most of the time, sometimes she takes her BMWF650GS but quite often we're two up so the Varadero's the bike for me.
