Just bought my first Triumph - Hello
« on: October 29, 2019, 01:23:09 PM »
Hi,

Just purchased my first Triumph bike this past weekend.  I live in the UK, and commute everyday from deepest darkest Kent into Central London.  I had a Honda CB500x that was okay; however my wife got a job very close to my work, so we started commuting together.  We quickly found the Honda to be not quite up to the task...

Lots of research later, I ended up with a 2015 Explorer 1200.  I love it, and it's only been a few days!  My wife loves it too - so much more comfortable as a pillion.

Hope to learn lots about these bikes and maybe join a ride one day!

Welcome from across the Big pond.
Great bikes and my wife prefers the TEX as a pillion as well over my last bike.
Smile, your on camera. Somewhere.
