Hi all, I just joined the forum. I just retired and bought myself a 2014 explorer with no miles at all on it.
Good to meet you all

You bought... a 2014 Explorer with 0 miles!?

There has to be a story behind this. Please share! Also, any pictures?

Although that is very cool, motorcycles are not meant to sit around for 8 years without being driven, so you may want to change the tires and at least inspect the coolant/brake hoses. The brake and clutch fluid will need to be flushed, and I would change the engine and differential oil. I'm sure members will chime in who have more experience resurrecting vehicles that have sat for extended periods of time.

Welcome to the forum and to Tiger ownership though; I am excited to hear more about your bike!

I should have read that before I posted, it should say low miles not no miles. It has 15000 on it. It’s my first explorer.
I guess I learned a lesson on my first post there

That makes a lot more sense haha! 15,000 miles is quite low for a 2014. Best of luck with the bike!
