MCN Review

Triumph has built a bike with more power, better handling, more agility and arguably better styling than R1200GS. It weighs in on the heavier side and never feels quite as exciting and as pure as the relatively lightweight GS, but in every other way it has the BMW knocked.

"I had a great experience with Superbike Rentals.  The hire process was straight forward, made all the easier by friendly (if not a little love sic) staff.

The bike was as new, equipped exactly as required.  The big Triumph 1200 Explorer is a real road burner, ran strong and handled exceptionally even with all my gear aboard.   Which definitely contributed to my coming to grips with riding it on the wrong side of the road!  The place is well hidden so take along a GPS to find it."

"I'm only to pleased to recognise and promote good service when I come across it (which, let's face it, is a rare thing these days, maybe you and your colleagues could run a training course for the alleged "customer services" at BT as I've been dealing with them this pm and it's been as grim as the weather was last week!!!).

Incidentally since you asked then yes I did dodge the weather most of the time although I had what is best described as an "interesting" time travelling fully loaded across the M62 last Thursday in driving rain and howling gales. However the Tiger took it all in its stride and just like you guys it was faultless and never felt like it would let me down.

So once again many thanks and hopefully the next time I get a bike from yourselves (not if but when) I will get to meet you in person.

I will be in touch again soon as I've got another free week at the end of September so maybe we can get something arranged for then."
