    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.

    Looks like fun but I have to go to my kids track day meet shortly after picking up the bike so can't make it.

    Would maybe have gone if I wasn't test riding the Explorer at my dealers but given what is likely going to be my bike is here I expect I would be pushing my luck.

    I confirmed my bike has the full SE kit on it so that is good news. My dealer has been great in getting me info and we agreed a deal in advance of the test ride. No major discount but a small token of generosity on his part which was unexpected. Thumbs up so far for Trebour Motorcycles NJ.

    You guy from NJ are all so adventurous I got you confused with the other guy, getting his bike from Martin. I forgot you were shopping some what locally.

    One rumor I heard (read) was Triumph was waiting to see how the reception was for the big Tigger, and based on that may come out with a Tiger Explorer Adventure (or Rally, or .....) that would have all the launch bike bits plus a larger tank and wire wheels. 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.... :lol3 :clap

    So . . . . it may be worth waiting a while to see which way the wind blows?

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

    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. :super.
