Since you asked about Adventure bikes generically, I'll answer even though mine isn't a Triumph, although I'm looking with lust at the 1200. I was living in Utah and riding my Harley, and many of my riding buddies had ADV bikes, mostly BMWs but a couple of KTMs and a Tiger or two. They were able to go off on the hundreds of miles of gravel roads that I would not attempt on the Hog, so I pulled the trigger on the Buell Ulysses. I came very close to a 955i but for reasons having nothing to do with the bike and everything to do with the Salt Lake City dealer, went a different direction. It was a great choice allowing me to greatly expand my riding, including two epic rides on the Pony Express trail. The egos are nice too.
