I wasn't very clear, I meant more scope for lowering the pegs to get more leg room.

I see the new 800's are fly by wire anyway and to be fair if it's anything like how they ironed it out on the Trophy you may not even notice. They will both :wheel without much provocation  :augie
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

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

Will do!  :thumbsup  :iagree
So have you retired the 955i  :icon_scratch: will we be seeing you astride the Explorer in Wales next year? (If not before) :icon_eek:
All the best, Mat-tiger1. 👍

As if I would say Bear tells porkies  :ImaPoser I know people who know him and say he is a nice guy but I take a lot of what he says with a pinch of salt a bit like the top gear team  :augie

Now the bike looks the DOGS I hope you find the one you love and I'm really interested in which one you like best and why  :thumbsup

Yes the 955 has gone. Iv,e had the explorer for 18 months now and love it. It was a tossup between that and a KTM 990 but after a test ride I just didn,t gel with the vtwin, if you know what I mean and I love the triple motor. Don,t know about Wales, the last couple of meets have overlapped with other things already booked.
