I ride the orange one. I don't know of another orange one around. A guy from Urbandale rides the blue Dakar 30th Anniversary one. Cool bike.

I can't answer any questions on the Explorer,
I can tell you that Hicklans Yamaha has a demo Super Tenere if you want to test a real bike.

most of the pics i have seen of the explorer include the fog lights. pretty sure they are a triumph accessory option that works plenty of coin from your pocket.
