Not a wire wheel fan but would buy the larger tank if it would mount right up, guess we'll see what happens :)

Once that's in the market, the wire wheels would be available for the standard bike. But again, all just rumor....excellent-if-true rumor....

This is a pretty heavy bike. I can see graded and hard packed roads but think I will stay away from sand and mud with it. .

He's got his balls caught in the slide-forward-seat! That's what his face is telling me

Unfortunately I didn't get in a very long ride today. I had to go back to work shortly after picking it up and then do some crap around the house . I will definitely be putting on the miles tomorrow and Sunday (sorry Mom).

One initial impression... it is a BIG bike. Coming from a tiny little Bonneville this thing is a beast.

Has anyone Had a passenger form an opinion about comfort yet. I'm seriously considering the Explorer this year. I've ridden it and loved it, but the wife has not been with me. We ride a ST1300 now that she loves. She's not a big girl and doesn't need a lot of room.

Dig around Tiger-Explorer.com Several comments over there that it is very comfortable for a passenger.

Kinda like going from a tweed jacket with elbow patches, to a full on Mad Max escalation,
in a good way mind you...
