Hi guys, from what I'm reading it looks like these are the next big thing!  :notworthy
I haven't got round to taking a rest ride as yet, but i'm hoping to soon.  :icon_lol:
One thing I'm not too keen on is the paintwork!   :icon_cry: Does anyone know if Triumph have any plans to produce the Explorer in any other colours? (Especially Lucifer Orange!) :thumbsup
All the best,
Mat-tiger1.

 :love10 Ooooooh Yes. If that had been available last year I would probably have ordered it rather than the Trophy but would probably have gotten  :violent1 from the pillion.

Power to you for having the commitment to do that, it really looks great.

Haha I can imagine most pillions preferring the trophy. Thankfully I've got a tiger girl :-)

That bike looks fabulous, but you forgot the black stripes on the tank!!     

Seeing this makes me think I could get one of those ugly green beasts and make it look like a tigger!

Pay attention to how your knees are positioned,  admiring yourself in shop windows works  :hat10

The 800 felt better to me and there is a bit more scope for lowering than on the Dora, end of the day it's very personal.

Go easy with the Dora throttle until you get the feel of it,   :wheel is to easy.

Hi Matt, As mentioned be careful with the throttle on the Tex. It,s  very light until you get used to it. The engineis brilliant and you may find yourself going 15-20mph faster than you think you are :augie. Only a test ride will let you decide one way or another but it was enough for me to buy my Explorer. And don,t forget to enjoy yourself on both of them :wheel
