    Hello all.

    I have just bought a new Triumph Tiger 1200 GT Explorer. I traded a 2020 Goldwing tour for it.

    I have to say, the finish looks far better on the Triumph!

    Anyhow, a bit about me. I have been riding since I was 16, so that's 48 years (work that one out).

    I also have a Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom which I have found to be incredibly good.

    My history of bikes owned goes from Norton Commando via BMW and Honda (usually big tourers such as K1100/1200/1600, Pan Europeans etc) with a few odd balls such as MZ/CZ thrown in for interest.

     The Suzuki is what turned me towards the Triumph. It is such a good bike but I am not a great fan of chain drive, so I'm hoping the Triumph has it all.

     Looking forward to perusing the forum and if I've done it right here is a pic of the new steed.
