I think the body of the family rabbit in a box at the dealership door got my guy to rush things along.

Hey, desperate times, right

A good bike is worth the wait, for a new model release, the Explorers are arriving comparatively early in the riding season.

Such a nice alternative for those seeking a high powered big bore adv tourer, basically a "wash and wear" bike that isn't Japanese, not as frighteningly service complex as Ducati's MS1200, nor detuned to 05 GS1200 levels ala Yamaha's Tenere and for many, an extremely viable alternative to BMW's uber successful GS range, without perhaps worrying about trading in the moment the extended warranty expires.

For myself, one of the most enjoyable bike threads in a long time,
what with following the early reports, of new owners feedback !

Mark and Brad really do an exceptional job running that place. I bought my 05 Tiger from them and they are some of the best i've ever dealt with.

Please tell them Constantinos sends his regards when you go by.

Hi Constantinos,
Mark and Brad said to say "hello" and wished you well. They remembered you well and spoke highly of you.

Spoke Wheels for the 1200 Tiger?

Has anyone heard if there will be a spoke wheel option for the 1200 Tiger?
