The rumours are true. Photographic evidence has been submitted to The Wollongong Daily that a big cat has been sighted in the Illawarra escarpment.

Adventure enthusiasts were quick to identify the beast as the all new Triumph Tiger and couldn’t contain their excitement:

“What a beauty. It is amazing to see such a majestic and rugged creature in the wild. It looked perfectly at home, traversing the dirt roads and soaking in the views,” said an undisclosed source.

Large numbers flocked to City Coast Motorcycles in Keira Street on Saturday on news they could experience the tiger in person.

Riders regroup at Wollongong’s first Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, hosted by City Coast Motorcycles.

On Sunday September 24, scores of dapper ladies and gents packed their manners aboard classic and vintage motorcycles and rode for the Movember Foundation.
