I've been having a blast tearing up the highways and interstates on my Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 XC since I got it about a month ago. I've got a little over 1500 miles on it as I was taking my time to break her in properly, but I expect that number will start climbing pretty quickly now.

I'm hoping to use her on some mild dirt roads here and there, so I took her up the backside of Mt. Lemmon today to try it out.







I was actually pretty impressed with how well she did for a 570 lb touring bike, but as expected it was pretty hard work through the rougher patches near the summit.

Nice to know that I don't have to be afraid to take the TEX on dirt roads, but no doubt it's a lot easier and more fun on the TW!

My KLR is similar, does good on the pavement, dirt roads, and easy trails, but the TW is the best DP bike for the low speed gnarly stuff.

Nice bike, man! I really want the 800XC to use as an adventure/commuter bike!
