Way back in March 2013 I was looking to replace Baloo (my 1150GS) and had two thoughts. The Triumph Rocket 3 Touring, and the Explorer.
As I considered that I would be commuting in the summer (at least) I opted for the more sensible choice of the Explorer rather than the more emotional option of the Rocket.
I am thinking of another change and replacing Dora with a Rocket. Plenty of thinking to be done.
