Why don't you just connect a pin-type charge lead direct to your battery? So much simpler that way. Use the powerlett for accessories.

I'm wanting one of those double usb port adapters and a standard cigar-lighter adapter.

Went thru it today, everything is at full-boat list.

If I was to buy something there I think I'd go back to my dealer and ask for at least 20% off.
There are a couple pants there I might look closer at. I tried some of it on at Berts and it was all pretty nice stuff. The adventure jackets are real nice and a couple of the leather ones are worth a look. Even their adventure boot looks decent. With a discount they are a relative bargain.

Triumph Explorer XC ?

Hello to everyone, I'm currently looking to buy a Triumph Explorer for next spring. I've found a remaining Launch Pack 2012 which I really liked ( brand new ). I also really like the color and look of the announced XC and was wondering if anyone had information about what to expect for this particular model regarding equipment and price ?

Thank you

Check your brake pads. At 12k my rear pads were toast.

Yep. Mine were the same. Curious how long folks are getting out of front?

Think it might have something to do with all that mud, sand and other shit you ride in?

I have been told that excessive chain lube is the culprit for reduced pad life, especially on the single sided swing arms like my Sprint ST 1050. I will put up with the reduced pad life for a well lubed chain. I have been happy with my 06 Tiger and 06 Sprint. Wife has told me I should sell my XR650L and buy a Tiger 800XC. I have a very smart wife.
