Howdy from Texas!
on: April 14, 2021, 03:01:06 PM
"Howdy Y'all" I'm new to the Triumph c̶u̶l̶t̶ group, I picked up my first Triumph (2014 explorer XC) this month, and I've loved every ride! going from a snappy 600cc sports bike in my younger days to a large cruiser/bagger the last 6 years I was ready for something that mixed the 2... So that lead me to an adventure bike. and after reviewing the Triumph/BMW/Honda/Ducati/Moto Guzzi I pinned it down to the Moto Guzzi (mostly for the looks) and the Triumph (for the overall look/feel) and obviously After feeling the power and snappiness of the 1200 TEXC it would have been foolish not to get it.

But here is the new (to me) bike! (the last owner installed handlebar risers, powder coated the stump-guard and auxiliary light covers and reupholster the seats brown)



And you can see my first "Mod" here (Other than modifying a garage door opener switch on the battery box)
