Put deposit on 2013 Explorer today

Went down to dealer in Sarasota today and put a deposit down on 2013 Graphite Explorer. They had just taken it out of the shipping crate so will next saturday before I can get back down to pick it up. Has been rather sad to take all the add-on's off of 2006 Girlie before I trade it in. However, really looking forward to my new ride. Time to start shopping on Twisted Throttle for bags, etc. Hope the wife doesn't yell to much.

Congrats RT! It didn't take long for you to make the decision between the BMW and the Explorer.

Congratulations RT! I just traded my 2006 Girlie (with 77,000 miles) for a new Tiger 800 at Haps last week! I was going to ask you if you were interested in buying the Russell Day Long saddle from my 955i. Guess you'll need to get one for the Explorer now!

I need new bags for my Tiger 800 too. Trax or Trekker look to be the cheapest choice but a set of the more expensive Jesse Bags would fit better and not be as wide! Haven't decided which way to go yet.

Say hi to David, Steve and Bob down at Haps for me next Saturday.

Good timing. Call Twisted and ask for Jim Hamlin. He's the new guy who runs the store and shop there after a long stint at Bridgeport, CT Triumph shop.

This guy is a master Triumph tech and the RaceTech suspention guru for Triumph bikes. He KNOWS his stuff inside and out. Have him put together a package for you-and do it today as they have a great sale going on NOW. FWIW-I use the CooCast top case on my Tiger and am 100% happy and they have a great price on it now. 48 or 50 litre size.

I have used Twisted Throttle quite a bit. I have had nothing but good luck with them. Most of the time I have the stuff at my doorstep the next day but I am only one state away from them.
