    Well it is second hand but in mint condition it is a 2014 Triumph Explorer 1200xc, I had a very trusted Mate Les @ozrider and his trusty side kick Tony @Mittzy check it out as,
    1 I can't ride yet ... bloody broken wing .. winge winge grrrrr
    2 it is way up in Qld about 1500km away
    They returned the verdict that if I wasn't buying it they would if fact Mittzy tried to tell me he had gazumped me and bought it himself, luckily for me and ...... him he was only kidding any way here is a couple of pictures IMG_0270.JPG IMG_0271.JPG IMG_1829.JPG Les IMG_1830.JPG and Tony

    All right I will be the first to say it---the bike looks good:D now all we have to do is get you a decent tune for it:roll: congrats on the bike I remember quite a few years back when the Explorer first came to America the Triumph crew showed up at Maggie Valley and we all got to touch and feel the bikes.

    My psychic powers are awesome just as well I got you that Tiger T-shirt from the Hahndorf RAT w/e. ;):D

    Great buy, good to see you have a focus to get mended for! i.e. Or as the T-shirt says - Getting lost deliberately!

    @HansO Are you going to fly up and ride back when recovered? I may ride up, see me mate Fletch and come back with you or would that be tempting fate? ;):(:unsure:
