    Some improvements this weekend

    Hi guys,

    this weekend I made some improvements to the Trophy.
    First   - the speakers:


    Second - The warning lights button



    And finally the third: I added some red color









    Farewell Throphy



    5 nice years, added 50.000 km, some trouble, but a nice bike.
    Unfortunatly I dropped it one time to often.

    The 'new' one is a 2015 40 Anniversary model in a special twin-tone coloring.

    And I had a big grin in my face during the 400 km journey back to Berlin.
    The Flat 6 engine is unbelievable.

    Cheers
    Klaus

    Good luck and enjoy your new ride - it should be great on your smooth roads. I hope you won't miss your ex "light-weight" Trophy too much!

    I suppose it will have reverse gear. That must be a joy.

    Enjoy!  A friend traded his K1600 GTL last year and is enjoying his Gold Wing with the DCT since he has arthritis in his hands.  From riding back roads with him it seems to handle very well.

    Thank you all.
    @Digital: reverse gear is fine :-)

    But: The Trophy is the more modern bike. The Goldwing didn't have the improvement the Trophy has. A modern computer, or Bluetooth or a TPMS.
    Maybe like the difference between a brandnew BMW and an elder Jaguar.
    Have a nice day

    Thank you Mr. B.

    It wouldn't have been as complicated as it seems to add reverse to the Trophy.
