Yes, this is combat maintenance truck, has welder, drill press, lathe and what not... Would perfectly work as support vehicle for the next Charlie/Ewan trip on their trusty Be-aM-doubleUs ;)

You were right, my statement was a complete BS... But this six-wheel drive truck is just as a GSA... If it gets stuck in mud, you'll never get it out... Too top heavy...

Naw, that's why they ride with Teneres and Stroms. Someone has to pull them out.

Good, now move on

Hey Ken, just noticed the caption under your avatar. " Captain Crash" Love it... Should say "Captain Crash; Deer Slayer" It's good to see your spirits are up enough to joke about.

LOL, sad but true. I earned that nickname back in my younger years of 80cc and 125cc dirt bikes. I was never very fearful and was always willing to find out the limit of my bike and myself. This of course led to some spectacular crashes that earned me that nickname from my friends.

The most frustrating thing is owning a two week old, in my eyes from the amount of time I had to ride it, Explorer that I can not ride teasing me. Surgery next Wednesday, praying this new orthopedic surgeon gets the job done and I can get back to walking and riding.

Can someone point my browser to a Tenere v EXPLORE thread? I tried doing a search but came up with jack crap.

Camparo here on the site, something in the mags, etc??

Thanks.

Tenere is Japanese bike, Explorer is Britain bike... What else do you need to know? Tenere has 2 cylinders, Triumph has 3 cylinders... Oh... You need 2 people to lift Tenere, 3 for Explorer :)

Another good site for Explorer specific information can be had at-


http://www.tiger-explorer.com/

It is a bit more active than the forum here for the big Tiger.

I like TT and sent them bunch of money in the past, but... Hanging every item in inventory on the bike makes it look like Christmas Tree with no style...

LOL, we think alike as that is the first that crossed my mind too. The other, I really can not stand the look of a topbox on a motorcycle. I definitely get the need to have one to lock your helmet into, especially in light of my newest helmet costing an arm and a leg. I could live with most of that stuff minus the topbox and the mirror extenders. One thing I loved on my explorer is the view afforded by the stock mirrors, I thought they rocked. I still need to address the hand guards and I am thinking of going with the Barkbuster brand as they seem well made and fit the bike nicely.
