    Said Goodbye to my Trophy

    It is with great sadness that I sold my 2013 Trophy today.  As I approach 67 in a couple weeks, it just got a little too heavy to move around when stopped.  One aftermarket knee and another one that does not work that well, limited my ability to move it easily.

    I had more fun on this bike than any other I have ever ridden.  It saw many great sites in our wonderful country (USA) and never gave me a lick of trouble.

    I sold it to a gentleman from the Detroit area and as I watched him ride off, I hoped he will get as much enjoyment out of it as I did.

    As for this Forum, you have been the greatest resource a person could ask for.  Always willing to answer a question, and always posting "how to" just about anything you would want to do to this bike.

    Thank you for your help and friendly communication.

    You may see me on a Bonneville or maybe in the near future a Tiger 800 or 900.  I will wave with a little bit of envy knowing you are on the superior steed.   :821:

    Ride Safe

    ZShyster, if I was to see your wave you can be assured you'd see my return wave. Stay safe what ever you ride. I'll be thinking of you. Cheers.  :821: :158:

    This must have been a tough call. We all will be there at some point. I'll be 60 soon and let me tell you, I cherish every ride. But I have a long ways to go, and I have a feeling you aint done yet either! Your next bike is out there somewhere. Go find it. And Cherish every ride.

    Peace and joy to you. And thank you for your service.

    I know it would have been hard to make that decision. Each of us must take the most appropriate path and for his health I understand that he needs to ride low weight motorcycles. Although, to tell the truth, to be 67 years old, I see that you are in good shape.

    We hope to see you here, even if it is to greet us and show us a photo of your new bike.

    I wish you luck and stay safe.

    As a good boat captain, do not abandon the motorcycle team that still has a lot to roll.

    Sorry to see your Trophy go before I was able to meet up with you in my old home town, but if you stay active on this site, I will still pm you the next time I plan to be there, regardless of what you are riding at the time. For all I know, I might be on my GS instead of the Trophy anyway!  :745:

    In the meantime time, ride whatever allows you to keep enjoying riding, and stay safe in the process!  :028:

    A sad day for sure.  But the Trophy's heart is still beating albeit for someone else to enjoy.  Stay in touch.
