Looking forward to when the WC Boxer comes out just to see how it compares. I think that, given that BMW has sooo much experience in this fiekd, they should produce a bike to easily beat the Tiger but that's a high bar for sure.

I'm happy as can be with my Explorer so not looking to go German but I love the way competition breeds improvement.
Me too. Not enough to wait for it, mind you. Anxious, nonetheless.

The Explorer is an incredibly fantastic machine and one to be proud to own. I contemplated between the two for several weeks. Had I been satisfied with a standard GS and not smitten by the GSA, I'd have chosen the Explorer pretty quickly I think.

I'm surprised at it's Viagra-esque staying power, to be honest...old design that somehow has stayed quite relevant. But the article didn't put the Explorer as a clear winner...just an extremely solid contender that certainly isn't taking a backseat to some Deutch motorrad.

Good luck with the Explorer's...I think they are on their way to a long and bright future with the 1200.
