Can we stop talking about meds, how well we used to ride when we were in nappies (diapers for you across the pond), fussing in shops etc. I still have the picture in my ind of OP walking around the shop in his new shoes and with helmet on in the lingerie section .

This has turned out be yet another pissing contest...

Tiger Explorer is the topic and I'm getting mine this week

Awwww, come on! You can try on a pair of shoes in the store and maybe walk around in them right there but the shoe sales person is not going to let you take off with them for a 1/2 hour. Let me get this right, you try on a new pair of shoes and tell the sales person, yeah, I just need to go for a little walk to make sure these shoes are just perfect for my feet, I need to feel that special connection. I'm just going to go around the block here and make sure they will make me feel special while I'm sitting atr Starbucks enjoying my latte. Yeah right! Listen, you can sit on any bike in any showroom to see how it feels the same way that you can try on any pair of shoes at a shoe store to see how they feel. Your comparisson is bogus.

Princess and the pea.
It was a great comparision and like another poster stated,,,,, many places will let you buy, try and return if you don't like em. You wrong on this un ole sport and it seems your manners are what's bogus.

Back on track

Now taking deposits for the Explorer... The first ones should arrive in 3 weeks and most of the first arrivals will have the "Launch Pack".

Still trying to get a straight answer as to just what the launch pack includes.

Over here the launch pack consists of the following

Alloy sump guard
hand guards
Engine bars
Taller touring screen

THREE WEEKS!

That's three weeks too long. Hope they hit the East Coast earlier (nothing personal West Coasters).

First post, just put my deposit down on the Explorer, it is set to arrive the first week of May. The launch kit here consists of the above mentioned as well as the Tire pressure monitoring sensors, rubber tank pad and fog lights.
