Collected new trophy on Sunday from a1 motor at York and said goodbye to the st1300 after 8 years faithful service - looking forward to the same from the trophy.
There was a second trophy waiting to be collected  It was a SE with all the extras.
l decided on the "basic" as the radio would not get used a lot and there is a decent bit more storage storage under the seat.
Both the bikes were the beautiful silver colour. Must be stuck on this colour the Honda was silver and so is my car.
I was disappointed with the size of the triumph top box although it says it is 55 Ltrs it looked a lot smaller inside so I stuck with my givi e55 which looks pretty good on the bike.
Looking forward to lots of trips round Yorkshire.

Good choice and welcome. I was a bit worried when I looked inside my topbox, but it is surprising what you can get in there.

Have fun on your new bike.

John, all the best with your new Trophy. I too traded in my faithful ST 1300 which I had for some 9 years for a new Trophy.    :401:

Howdy John, from another John  :046:  Seems like there will be a lot of ex pan owners here, as Honda has not offered anything the wait for.  I currently have a 1996 ST1100 police model, and at 207,000kms I have needed to think about the next bike.
