You should try the trail thing at least once. Once is all it will take. Some 800 pounds of top heavy bike and riders on dual purpose tires. Should be interesting!

The Uly always came with 17-inch wheels...

You are the expert, but I could have sworn there was a major re-do of the bike about 2 years ago to make it more street and less trail. But I'm old now, and easily confused... Would you like an orange?

Upon further review, you really are the expert on the topic:

Your memory is accurate but flawed. The suspension was lowered about 1.5 inches on the XB12XT Uly that Pete reviewed here: Triumph 2.3 Cruiser

The XT is different than the X. It also comes with a taller windscreen and saddlebags as standard equipement.

Thanks, tho, for reminding me about that old story I wrote for that other website. Brought back some memories, and it even entertained me!

That's exactly what I was thinking. I was on my DRZ400 with a case of Yeungling strapped on the back at the time.
