     :159:  Well, that's my Trophy on her way to a new owner.  Didn't think I would feel a bit sad, but then the memories of the places we visited on her came flooding back....oh well, I'm sure the new owner will be just as happy and cover happy miles





    Not to fear, though.....I still have a Phantom Black trophy  :001: :001:

    The New Owner will have a fantastic time on it !

    They will need a new Registration Plate though !  :745:

    Yes, I replaced my 1998 4 cylinder Trophy with a 2012 launch model two years ago and liked the Trophy so much that I bought a newer 2016 model.  I had both for about 10 months but only because it wasn't really the right time to sell.  The 2012 Trophy has now been sold.

    Could you tell much difference between them other than a few cruise control features and things of that nature? Did one ride better than the other?

    Not really. The later bike has bar risers but I can't really tell the difference and may take them off.  The later bike has Avon tyres but roadholding doesn't feel as good as the Michelins on the earlier bike, but that is often just a psychological thing.  I normally like Avon tyres.

    I rode the earlier bike just before I sold her and that bike just felt a bit more comfortable to ride, but it's all subjective.
