That has worked very well for me on the last three bikes I've owned. Certainly not in any rush, the Girlie is still a hoot to ride in the meantime ....

Sounds like a great place to business with. Wish I would have got there sooner for my test ride on the Explorer. May ride it again when I get back from work in January back to back with a Tenere...

Wish they sold Hondas too, still want to try out the NC700X as well. Maybe I can shame one of the local Honda dealers into a test ride...

It's done

I bought myself a Triumph Explorer yesterday ready for delivery March 16th 2013. Can't wait to ride it. It's a 2012 with launch pack. I also added to it heating grips and radiator protector. It's gonna be a looooooonnnnnngggggg winter.

Congrats on the new bike & chill out! Remember, winters in Canada are usually only 6 months long. Just kidding. It will be worth the wait!

Or as they say, "Nine months of winter and three months of really poor sledding"

Actually right now is still nice weather to ride, but considering that we are on borrowed time, I'd rather wait 'till I take it out. And last year, we had a false start at summer in march, so I'm kind of hopping for a repeat on last year...

Thanks guys

Pilot Road 3, super tire

Okay, I think I posted in the wrong thread, oops, I posted same report over in 955 opinions, sorry to avid Tiger riders.

I went for a ride with some more off road worthy beasts and had a blast. I had fresh Pilot Road 3 tires which handled the gravel and hard pack with okay performance. I would not want to do this all the time, but for a day ride it worked out okay.
On the road, these tires inspire pure confidence.
Tigers are incredible machines, no matter what the year!
