    These are the Jesse Odyssey bags and I think the ones in the last pic are the new Safari model....

    We have the Safari bags on our Beemers but we got to use the Jesse Bags on our summer trip as you can on the Tigers. These are 10 inch bags and a 45L top box.

    Hi Xcountry-Rider. I'm looking for a large volume tank bag for my 800 XC. Question though, can you see the instrument panel okay with this bag?

    That is a custom xc that Triumph used for the EICMA show I believe. Don't think they will sell em like that however with another 6-7k you could build one from a stocker .......

    Since the wheels alone are almost $4k I've a feeling it would cost a good bit more than that, but if it were offered as a factory setup, the price difference would be less than what it cost you to build it yourself not only because Triumph can source the parts cheaper, but also because there wouldn't be the waste of the take-off bits from the current stock bike, i.e. exhaust, wheels, etc...

    Agreed if the wheels are that much.....most likely closer to $9-$10K then to build yourself. I would think you are still looking at 4-5K more even if it is a factory set-up. This Ohlins are not cheap either. It is a sweet bike though.......

    Yep. You're in for $6k+ for just the wheels and the forks. Add in the rear shock and the Brembos (note that the master cylinder and res. are new as well), the lights, engine guard, bash plate and exhaust and I'd say $9k is the minimum.

    I'm fine with my XC and the bevy of non-Triumph parts bolted on it for now. Some time down the road I might mess with the suspension and you would think that someone would have tackled the damn tubeless tire thing at a semi reasonable price by now. I'll blame that on the Beemer, KTM and Ducati guys and their free flowing bottomless wallets.:D

    I would buy this set up and for us no real dire need for the Ohlins suspension...but that is pretty nice though...I love the wheels...just had to plug my rear and not a problem and took all of 10 mins. Having tubes I know are better off road but in reality we are on the road more for work. Tubeless spoke wheels they have on the BMW 1200GSA...very nice set up. As for all the triumph Farkles, we had them on our "demo" bikes this summer and to be honest I really liked the Triumph aux lights, skid plate did it's job and we never had to test the engine guards but they are substantial.

    It for nothing else this is a good ad for what can be done to the bike.

    You hit the nail on the head with that statement. This is the bike Triumph wants to show you to make you salivate and think, hey I can do that with mine too.......and damn if it doesn't work huh......:clap

    I'm a fan of the OEM parts as well besides the panniers which are cheap plastic.

    OEM pannniers bracket/mounting system = crap! Plastic and has no place on a ADV bike. As a matter of fact Triumph just used the same set up they have on the Sprint...bad bad decision.

    I saw that as well and was disappointed. I thought they would design new panniers for the explorer that maybe i could use on the Tiger but no they went with the same crap.
