    Took possession of my new to me 2013 TTSE on January 19th, Blue with 11,500 miles on the clock. Previously owned Kawasaki ZRX1100, Yamaha V-Star 950, Honda ST1300, Honda VTX1800F and 2014 Honda Valkyrie. The ZRX1100 certainly had the highest horsepower to weight ratio but crosswind stability was not a strong point. Couldn't stand the heat on the ST1300 and the cruisers were just not me. The 2014 Valkyrie is the only one I purchased new, great motorcycle. I did look at the cycle-ergo website for my height and inseam measurements and the TTSE looked to be the best fit for me of all of the Sport Touring motorcycles.  Although I have to slide to the front of the seat to flat foot the bike the first 30 mile ride was a blast. Smooth, powerful and excellent handling. I have read all the comments about low speed, parking lot and garage maneuvers and having previously owned the ST1300 have great respect for the top heavy weight of this mototcycle.

     :400: on board "old fella". I'm sure you'll come to appreciate your Trophy more, as you get the miles on it. With over 70 thousand kilometres on mine I still get a buzz going for a ride. Cheers.  :821: :158:

    I believe Paw Paw, Michigan was the home of Charlie Maxwell a professional baseball player for the Detroit Tigers back in the 1960s. I grew up in Southeastern Michigan before retiring in Florida.

    Paw Paw is a great little town.  I have lived here for 32 years now.
    I'm new to the Triumph Trophy SE also.  I just bought mine after I was taken off from my Concours 14 by a deer in November.  I have only driven it about 65 miles so far...
