Congrats Voluhzia, I'm sure it'll feel like two decades worth of advancement, compared to the Vee.

Too true, my wife buys more bikes than I do. Complaining... hardly.

Dealer called me to tell that 2 triumph Explorers arrived... 1 already sold.

So, dealer called me to tell me that the Explorers arrived, but one is sold, guy put 3K down and the other is out for grabs but not test drive alowed unless you put cash down ! :(
They say that they don't want to add miles to this bike, since they are not getting any more till the end of the year...
So much for filling up Triumph Paper work for Test drive

You should get his email address and send him a link to all these Americans who are lying about actually owning one!

Can't believe they would all lie just to make me and you feel bad, Luke.

What kind of people hang out on these fora? One's with excellent photoshop skills if you ask me

Do we need to get a few of these "imaginary" bikes together and pay a visit to your local rep and the dealer??

Bummer. Maybe they meant they haven't got to the east coast? Wait, they should be there FIRST if anything.

The rep is either misinformed or telling a white lie. My blue X12 was scheduled for May 12th but hit the dealer & was ready for me with all launch addition accessories installed on April 24th.

Here's one of those imaginary Explorers with a local landmark in the background. I picked it up last Saturday.



Sorry about the quality. It's a cell phone photo on my way home from work after reading your post.

So my dealer says his guy is in Georgia doing the tech course and he is 'hopeful' that the bike may arrive late next week.

I am not pinning my hopes on it because I don't want to get my hopes up but it is a step in the right direction.

Fingers crossed for good news for you too Luke.
