It's not a bad idea to clean the bike before riding it to a dealer to test ride one of their bikes.....which is exactly where I rode right after taking that pic...then I got their bike dirty on the test ride....

Loved the 1200cc triple, and growl from the stock pipe in the upper register.

Loved the handling, shaft drive, traction/cruise controls, and brakes/ABS.

The computer isn't intuitive at all, I'd need to read up on how to use it, turn stuff off, on, and reset as well.

The seat...SUCKS!

Ergos fit my 6'4" 330lb azz quite nicely, although it was weird feeling at first with the Rox risers, and taller windscreen I actually felt like I was sitting down inside of it.

How cool is it to actually get to go on an unescorted test ride, and be told to try it off pavement too. That Explorer is a demo bike that's ridden most every day by Glen at Hattiesburg Cycles.......http://www.hattiesburgcycles.com/

It'll be a little while before I spend that kinda money for a bike again, but one thing is certain, the Explorer is going to be hard to beat out when I do...

Sounds like a great bike. Wait a few years and let someone else wear off the depreciation....then snag a good deal on a used one

2tall, there is a another shop with that kind of customer service. El Dorado Cycles in the El Dorado Springs, MO. He put TKCs on the his roadie. Let me ride both Roadie and XC back to back. Then since my Tiger was needed all week and I lived 100 miles away, told me to take his Sprint GT demo home. No need to trade your Sprint ST 1050 on a GT. Nearly the same bike. But I digress. It is so nice to live shops like these.

+1 on El Dorado Cycles! I stopped in there one day while I was on vacation and Randy bent over backwards trying to get me on a test ride on just about anything in the shop. Will be retiring to that area in a couple of years and am looking forward to it.

Sounds like Triumph might have kicked some US dealer butt because that's the sort of service we get in the UK.

Also, interesting to see that the TEX has been fitted with a Madstad screen.
