Tiger 1200 Explorer - Wheels Painted Silver
At 20,000 miles while the tyres were off the rims I had the wheels painted silver, I decided to have the wheels
painted silver because the standard stain grey finish is dull and a magnet for dirt and brake dust. To my eyes
the Explorer never looks clean for long. I am hoping Silver will look better for longer.
My Tiger Explorer at 20,000 miles with Silver wheels and (below) 1 week earlier with standard wheels
|My rear wheel cleaned and polished (again!)
|Same day, same wheel after 25 miles on damp roads, no rain.
All the shine has gone leaving the usual dull & dirty look
It is February in the UK and ironically
the sun was too bright to get the true
colour of the new silver wheels. To
the eye they closely match the silver
I rode a further 5,000 miles with the
silver wheels, I think they really
improved the look of the bike. They
always looked cleaner and brighter
than standard. They never looked
dull and dirty for long because rain
would wash the worst of the dirt away,
even on my 3,800 mile trip round
Norway & Sweden.
