triumph explorer

looking forward to the ride of the new explorer just to see how it compares to the gs, had the 1150gs 70000 miles loved it struggled to come to terms with the 1200. Looks good but a bit too gsish ?

Had a test ride last Friday and enjoyed it so much came back and did a deal for one in black. Doesn't feel as big as it looks, handles really well and the engine is all torque. It is my first adventure style bike after sports and sports/tourers, presently ride a Sprint 1050, looking forward to picking it up later in April.

but can someone explain why the rider is attacking right hand bends while way over the right, and left handers by being way over to the left?
