Title: Just upgraded to Explorer
Post by: alzar on December 26, 2018, 04:59:59 PM
Hello from Ireland,

Just traded my Tiger 800 which I owned for 6 years and 25k for a 2016 reg Tiger Explorer (last of the 2015's).

The bike has 3500 miles, had it for a few days and so far I'm really impressed.

Looking forward to doing a few mods and getting some advice here

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Irish biker. The 1200 is a great machine - think you will appreciate the comfort on the Donegal roads !!

Hi
I had a T800 (2011 plate) for about three years and 40,000 miles, low mileage SH, then a 1050 Sport, but I broke that and now a 2015 plate white Explorer, much like yours, but a lot dirtier, also a low mileage (about 5,000miles) ex-factory bike, it's at 19,000 miles and not looking forward to the big 20,000 miles service, but that's a long way off for you yet  :028:

Excellent to ride, a bit heavier to handle at low speed, but hey, who wants to go at low speeds  :008:

The only problems I've had are with disappointing suspension when fully loaded and with pillion, but I had much the same with the T800  :018:
