Welcome to the Club! Wish I could be riding like you can in FL, but I'm too young yet to retire so the frozen tundra is still my home. Days are getting longer though.....

Just got back from a 70 mile ride in the country north of Pensacola, Fl. When I purchased the bike it came with three seats, LowRider, Comfort and Corbin. The Corbin was installed so I started with that. Seemed very comfortable but I did develop a bit of an ache (almost cramp) in the upper left thigh region. No problems on the right side and overall enjoyable ride. The Cruise Control, Windshield, Electronic Suspension, TPMS, and self-cancelling turn signals are all operating properly. I did check tire pressures ahead of time and both read right around 40 psi. I did run into one ill-timed yellow light at an oddly canted intersection and the aggressive braking required surely tested my skills handling the weight of the bike. All went well but I think I will be installing the Comfort seat as the reach to the ground seems to be a bit less. I do have a call in to the local Triumph dealer in Pensacola to see about the ignition switch wire routing recall.

Sounds like you are enjoying getting to know your new Trophy  :152:

You might want to consider lowering the ride height a little
by fitting Lowering Links to the rear Suspension Unit,
which is a relatively easy task to perform - plenty of Topics
within the Forum to guide you that can be found
by use of the Search feature.

The cold tire pressures are specified to be
36 PSI in the front and 42 in the rear,
not 40 each, so I recommend you attend to that.
Some Members prefer to run the front a little higher,
but make sure the pressures are set when the tires are cold.

The pressures will rise by 2 or 3 PSI when being ridden.

Definitely get that Ignition Switch Wiring inspection
attended to as soon as possible !  :169:

Cheers  :821:

When I contacted the local Triumph dealership in Pensacola, Fl they requested the last six digits of the VIN number. After providing that information they told me that according to the Triumph database there were no open recalls for that VIN number. So either the Ignition switch wiring inspection already had been completed or my VIN number was not among those affected by the recall. I did check the tire pressures before I set out yesterday and the ambient temperature was 58 degrees F. During the ride the display was indicating 43 F and 44 R

You can check for any outstanding Recalls yourself on the Triumph website here :

Triumph Motorcycles / Owners / Recalls

As far as I am aware, ALL Trophy motorcycles ( 2012 model onwards )
were affected by the Recall, so if it is not shown as outstanding on their
Web Site, I think it is safe to assume it has been done.

It's a shame that they haven't configured the Web Site to show the Recalls
that HAVE been completed, for that extra peace of mind, instead of relying
on the Dealership to complete an entry on Page 5 of the Owners Service
Record Booklet -  which many ( it seems most ) Dealers neglect to do !

Cheers  :821:
