2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer First Ride (Another Review)


Make sure you watch the video…nice review…I am sure many more to come…I like this one! They mention 10,000 service intervals and 20,000 in between the major ones…same as BMW basically so not so new to the ADV bikes nowadays.  Most new engines are requiring less time being “serviced”.  Change your oil and all is […]

Would we have taken our BMW’s to Alaska!???


  Just a quick post after receiving many private messages and emails asking if we would have taken our 2010 BMW F650GS bikes on the same trip we did on the Triumph Tiger 800’s last summer.  Our answer is YES…totally.  Our Beemers would have easily made the trip through BC, the Yukon and Alaska.  We […]

Triumph Tiger Explorer review


Kevin Ash Paul Barshon, Alessio Barbanti, Patrick Gosling (click on images) HOW do you turn the ABS off on this bike?  Is there a switch or do you have to manually do it?  ANYONE KNOW? Some reviews are just too wordy and this one is no different.  But if you read it you will get […]

Best Adventure Motorcycle 2011: Triumph Tiger 800 XC


Do you agree?????????? By Motorcycle USA Staff Friday, December 30, 2011 Triumph manufactured a lot of hype for the Tiger 800, so it was a real treat to discover the British mount lived up to expectations. Not just a shrunken version of its big brother Tiger, the 800 was a purpose-built Adventure bike. Triumph even […]

2012 Triumph Scrambler | Preview


Really liking this bike!  Cheryl always loved the retro looks but not me.  Recently though they are growing on me and might have to take one out for a ride! Get rid of the dual seat, add a skid plate and some other Farkles and perhaps a very cool DS bike…..not expensive! Tom Wera 12/31/2011

OUR 2010 BEEMERS MEGA PIC POST


We have both owned 2010 BMW F650GS aka F798Gsa bikes since 2010. Check back here every so often for new pics! We have made this street version of the GS family more off-road worthy by adding some crash protection, better tires, added a beak to look more like its big brother the 800GS, have changed […]

2012 TRIUMPH TIGER EXPLORER SPECS


Comes in Sapphire Blue, Graphite (Like the Beemer) and Black…now what is the MSRP and will there be a XC version? Small Tank for a bike this size.  Maybe they are hoping that the weight might be a selling point but if this bike gets the gas mileage that the Tiger 800XC gets when you […]

Ducati, Moto Guzzi and KTM – Other ADV bikes in the line up


Yesterday I posted a poll asking what bike you would buy.  It was quickly brought to my attention I over looked 3 other contenders, maybe 4.  I mean there are more models out there than Triumph, BMW, Yamaha and Honda in the ADV market right?  I feel a bit embarrassed that I did not include […]

What Bike would you buy?


HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Even though I ask if $$ was no issue, is weight? Height an issue? Vote for the most realistic bike if you had the money…. 🙂  **Should have added the KTM 990 so if you choose that bike or the Multistrada and Moto Guzzi vote other and if you can leave a comment […]
