    Nice video beautiful farm land, but roads a little to straight level for me. What kind of after market is that windshield?

    For this video, I am actually riding a 2019 Kaw Concours.  Of course, I also own a Triumph Trophy SE too

    As always magnificent! I love these videos.

    I'm with Digital in agreeing that I always enjoy your rides in the country. I couldn't help noticing that in your ride video through Ledges State Park that you have a Trophy being ridden behind you. Obviously another discerning rider.  :821: :158:

    Yes, we had another fella riding a Trophy.  They are super comfortable and highly maneuverable machines.  I've got approximately 32,000 on mine and have enjoyed riding it to Maine, Florida, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon and other parts of the U.S. and it never missed a beat

    How does the Concours stack up against the Trophy, as to ride, handling, and power?

    While the Concours is quicker, faster, and a little smoother while the Trophy is a much more comfortable bike, especially on long trips.  It has a superior windshield and fairing that protects against wind and rain much better than the Kawasaki.  Also, I can fill the Triumph with any kind of unleaded fuel and it runs fine.  The Kawasaki must take 90 grade fuel.   Another noticeable thing is that the Triumph is quicker to turn more easily into curves and corners.
