    2013 TT test ride

    Hi everyone,

    New to the forum today. The reason I joined is that next week I am going to test ride a 2013 Triumph Trophy with 16,000 miles on it. Anybody have any advice on what to look for on this specific bike .
    Any known issues or problems ? 
      Thank you and I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions

    Hi dvdsulli, and :400: to the Forum !  :028:

    First piece of advice is to take your wallet -
    You will probably need it after the Test Ride to pay the Deposit !  :169:

    Before going though, have a read of this Topic, but don't be put off by it -
    many of the "issues" noted have been compiled over several years
    and have only affected a relatively small number of the total production :

    O boy, another test ride.  You know it's going to cost you.  Welcome and enjoy your Trophy.  I'm that sure it's coming home with you.  Don't let the static weight fool you, when the wheels start to turn it loses a couple of hundred pounds.

    Thank you everybody for the warm welcome. If I do buy this bike I am very confident that you all will help me with any issues that might come up .
