Oh, wait, did I say I'm not interested in the Explorer? I actually was very interested in the Explorer, but I think Triumph didn't do such a great job with it so far. I'm not "flogging" anybody, but I don't like the BS being put out all over the place. Might be my problem or your problem, I couldn't care less about that part - so please, filter me and be happy.

Given that's what you worked on...I think you are entirely qualified to comment on GS' engineering

Yeah, I take everything back. That's close enough.

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.

At some point that constant banter you bring is nothing more than a trollish approach to inject your garbage into this thread. You seem to relish in the constant little battles that arise every time you say something outlandish or what you are sure will get a response, pathetic. It is made even more comical when early in this thread you actually brought up Rema when in fact you seem to be acting alot like him...





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.
