    I am in the middle of a lifetime pursuit of the perfect motorcycle.(37 and counting) Most of my focus has been spent on Dual Sports, Adventure Bikes, Sport Tourers and Long Distance Touring Bikes.  I started in college with a 1978 Honda 350XL and have not stopped searching. Along the way I fell in love with Triumph and this week I bought my 5th Triumph, a 2015 Trophy SE with 2100 miles, purchased from a forum member and great guy from here in Atlanta.  It has some tasteful modifications and there is very little I will need to do to do to it other than ride.  I would like some help on quieting the exhaust a bit (Trident Slip On)

    To make sure I can afford this mission I traditionally buy used bikes that have been well cared for, ride them for a year or two, then try to pass them on to someone else for close to what I paid for them. When I fall in love with a bike, I try to keep it.  My favorite bike of the entire list has been the Tiger 800, but the Trophy may give it some competition.  In the garage now is a 2015 Tiger 800XCx, my wife's 2017 T-100, the 2015 TTSE and a 2017 Husky 701 for off road. 

    Thanks for including me in the forum and I look forward to learning and participating.

     :400: wisdom, glad you signed up.  The Trident is too loud for me as well.  Waiting to get back to PA from FL to get the oem.  Did the oem not come with your purchase?  Anyhow enjoy the Trophy for a couple of years.  I'm wondering if the handle wisdom goes with owning 37 bikes, Lol.

     :400: Wisdom. I'm sure you'll show plenty of it [wisdom that is] when considering the long term ownership of your "new" Trophy.  :821: :158:
