Dang I had another one follow me home
« on: August 18, 2014, 11:28:44 PM »
Another bike that is, my first British bike. I have to say this ride fits me so well, It already has an aftermarket seat and wind screen. it's a 08 with 15k on the clock. Showroom condition

Beautiful bike Jim!!

<threadjack>

Whatever happened to the TransAlp you bought awhile back?

Very nice!  I enjoyed many of mile on my blue tiger, even did my first track day on it.  Probably the best all around bike I've had through the garage.  I see it has the center stand as well, looks like you are set to go.  I don't know how tall you are, but I do have lowering plates you are welcome to if needed.  They are Mic's links from tiger1050.com, 25mm if I recall.  Enjoy the new to you ride.

Nice bike, Explorer, I forsee much exploring being done with it. :bigok:
It's always nice to bond quickly with a new bike.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Be careful there my friend!  The Japanese and Brits have fought many a war against each other!   ;D

Lovely bike, may it serve you well!

If you are not happy with what followed you home just leave it at my place, I'll give it a good home


Great ride, and love the sound of the exhaust (ever figure out what muffler it was?)
