Any Trophy owners in the Austin area?
« on: January 17, 2021, 02:41:38 pm »
Are there any Trophy owners in the Austin/SA area that would be open to a day ride/bike swap?  After running through four bikes (2009 V-Strom 650, 2008 Yamaha FJR1300, 2014 V-Strom 1000, 2014 HD Police Electra) in a year of my return to motorcycle ownership, I've now got my eyes on a Trophy.  I'm looking for someone in the hill country area who would be open to going for a couple hour ride with swapped bikes.  My current ride is the 2014 V-Strom 1000, which I really enjoy, but can't get the Trophy off of my brain!  If you're interested, let me know!

I'm in New Braunfels and I wouldn't mind, but mine has been lowered due to my, ahem, vertically challenged stature and I most likely wouldn't do well with the height of the V-Strom.  That's one of the reasons I ended up on the Trophy there was the possibility to lower an already lower than most sport touring bike.  My K1600 was low enough, but much heavier, more frequent maintenance, and I was retiring so downsizing everywhere.
