    Hello Boys and Girls, and anyone else,
    My name is Paul. I joined this site sometime last year, I think, becuz I was looking for a replacement for my warhorse, a 1987 Yami Venture Royale. This beast has been in the family since new. I just love this bike but is it old and really heavy. Hence the Trophy Forum.
    My choices were RT1200 or the Trophy. The Trophy won. It is really a nice bike. Unfortunately it is sitting in in the garage nekked. No bodywork, being painted, no wheels, being powder coated. She looks sad, but not for long.
    I have owned;
    1981 Katana 1100(maybe 1982?)
    1984 Honda VF1000
    1985 Suzuki RG500 Gamma
    1993 Honda 600cc F2 track day bike
    And still own;
    1987 Yami Venture Royale
    1972 Yami R5 (still in pieces awaiting assembly)
    150cc Chinese Scooter. This is the most fun I have ever had on 2 wheels.
    Yep, I love motorsicles.....

    I am looking forward to meeting new friends and picking y'all's brains about the SE scooter.

    Thanks,
    Paul in Chicago

           Welcome aboard, you find out like I did , that we have a lot of members who are more than willing and able to share their knowledge with you about various problems that show up from time to time with our Trophy’s. Just letting you know that in my 50 plus years of riding I have owned just about all of the Major brands , and my favorite was the old warhorse Yamaha Venture Royale, a first year 1983, my favorite ride a 1986, that I owned for 13 years & put on 136K , 2 cross country trips, 2 up and pulling a camping trailer behind, and never left me stranded on the side of the road. It took me a while to get friendly with the Trophy TT , I got a lot of help from forum members and I know will to.
