In the new Icon catalog they explain the purpose of the bike and the rides they did with it, sand, mountain and snow. Also, they have an adventure jacket and pants that match that look good.

2399 EUR ... $3150 (USD). Ouch. German price likely includes 19% VAT, but that doesn't make it more appealing ...
I've seen bicycle wheels that cost more, so that price doesn't seem too out of line.

Why not? Seems Woody's could lace any rim you want onto XC hubs.

Today, for the first time ever, my 14,000 mile old 2012 XC started stalling. It started doing it after I was stopped on the side of the road with one of NY states finest. He was nice, but still gave me the ticket (74 in a 55).

When I went to start the bike, it stalled. Wouldn't idle. Wouldn't run unless giving it gas. I wasn't smart enough to turn the key off. I proceeded to ride the bike on some of the nicest damn roads I've ever been on in the Adirondacks. Since i was moving at speed, the bike ran totally normal. ie: awesome! Come to a stop and it dies. Start it back up with lots of throttle and speed off. Now, I'm frustrated. Disappointed, and my goal was to continue riding the bike until I got back to civilization just in case... well, 2 espressos later, I started the bike and it ran fine for the rest of the 275 miles home this evening.

Long story short, turning the power off at the key reset something, but now I'm wondering just what happened. What will happen and if I'm gonna get stranded someday. It seemed to behave exactly how others bikes were acting before the tune came out to solve. My bike never had any of these issues, but I did get the tune awhile back. I had another update several weeks ago. As far as I know, it has the latest tune. It's run perfect since that tune. I probably put about 3,000 miles on the bike since I got it. I did about 2,000 miles over the last 5 days and it started doing it this morning. Not sure if any of that is related?

Thoughts?

That and use the device that is designed for turning off the bike: the key. The kill switch is for emergencies and the side stand for dummies.

Yes, the stepper idle motor resets. If there's dirt in the mechanism it can't reset to the correct position so you get idle problems. BUT, if you turn it on and off a few times, it seems to knock the dirt off and gets to where it should get to. Problem solved.

that generally works for me, unless I'm on a trip and use a tank bag that gets in the way of the key

I can't believe they didn't put the tubeless rear on the 2013 800 XC. That is two major complaints with the 800 that Triumph addressed on the Explorer but they decided not to correct on the 800. Nonintegrated pillion pegs and a tubeless rear.

I am sure most 800XC owners would be fine with the tubed front with a tubeless rear. Yes you can make it so yourself but why not bring the 2013 rim from the Explorer XC over to the new 800's?

Probably due to cost. Tubeless spoke wheels are not cheap, even compared to the Excel wheels that are already on the 800XC.

Jesus, how many times do we have to go over the same shit

Some of us don't see tubed wheels as an issue and nor do some of us think the pillion pegs as that big an issue as some think.
