Big Problem With New Trophy!!
« on: August 12, 2013, 11:47:00 PM »
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.

It is a conspiracy soon you will be driving on the road and walking on the pavement.  And as for Fanny pack! 

Have fun and as you say got to go now.  :001:

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:
