Belly up............
« on: August 26, 2013, 01:23:24 am »
......... Guys and Gals, this round is on me! :821:
Yesterday I purchased a Trophy. I went to the local BMW/Triumph dealer to purchase a BMW 1200rt. Test rode it, liked it, was going to buy it. Then saw the Trophy across the show room. Long story short, they let me test ride it and the rest is history.
The bike I have been riding for a while is a 1982 Goldwing GL1100. All I can say is WOW! What a difference. I've put a few hundred mile on my new Trophy and am just amazed by it. Obviously you all know why.
So, raise your glasses and lets all toast me drag gin' my 2 wheels into the 21st century

Welcome to the Forum!

A joint BMW Triumph dealership eh! I wonder how many other people have gone in for an Rt and realised their mistake in time to come away with a TT?
