Agree with open question from prior post: what say you about returning to the tiger after a go on the 2 bikes that are usual attractions for many adventure riders?

My guess would be that both of those are so dull, they'd make you wonder why you didn't take the car

Had an r1200r for a bit as well and an explorer.
I had problems with all the beemers including multiple breakdowns. My r1200r was 2013 and 15k miles and had no end of problems . The explorer was the best of the bunch but ran very hot and the gears would be difficult to shift if it was very hot and in town going through the box. It was a 2012 though so first batch.
Dropped off the r1200r yesterday and picked up the xcx. Bloody lovely and feels much nicer than my previous 800xc. The Africa twin was really nice but the suspension was extremely soft , it has the start switch issue which Honda wouldn’t sort and rusty spokes, After ordering new wheels twice and the never turning up I gave up. I tried the DCT because the fuelling on the manual was pretty snatchy.
