    Big Problem With New Trophy!!

    Finally took delivery of my new Trophy SE on Friday. Had to wait for the dealer installation of the heated grips and top case for the wife. Had a great weekend learning how to operate all the bells and whistles and breaking in the motor with care and tenderness! But I found one HUGE problem today - it's Monday and I can't seem to stay off the bike and go to work!! I think the owners manual must have had some kind of subliminal messages coded into the seemingly harmless pages. Or perhaps a pheromone additive in the break in oil? Well I'm hear to tell you folks that this obvious British plot to control my mind through Triumph Motorcycles WILL NOT WORK. Anyway, I gotta go - wife says the bangers and mash should be ready by the time I finish my Guinness. Lets Ride Mates!!

    Ah yes, such a common ailment that the American Medical Association has just declared it a new disease.  Problem is that insurance companies won't cover it and the EEOC won't recognize it as a disability

    And its only the beginning. Just wait till you get past the break-in period. and then 1,000 miles, and a 1,000 more, and more, and more. More is better than less. We want more.

    Hi Bryan, and  :400: to the Club !

    That's one fault that all Trophy owners have to endure !

    Did you notice how the fuel filler has been ingeniously designed
    to be the perfect size and shape to accept a Guinness Beer mat  :169:
    Try not to drip Gravy on the tank though :156:
