I'm Andy from Leeds and I've been lurking around here for a while. After 8 years on a Tiger 1050 I was looking to change two years ago. I tested the Explorer 1200 and a Crosstourer DCT. I went with my head rather than my heart and decided on the Triumph. BIG mistake! I never really gelled with it at all. It would flop into corners and I could never get on with Triumph's programming of the fly by wire throttle, which gave the feeling of having a massively loose throttle cable with lots of free play (if you see what I mean!). Also it seemed flat as a fart below 3000 compared to my old 1050.
Anyway here I am now with the bike I should have bought in the first place Its a 2019 DCT.
