    I currently ride a 2011 Sprint GT. For long distances, my hips and legs are not happy, so I'm looking for a good Trophy. I sat on one in a dealers showroom today, and it felt like I belonged!
    Nothing but a Triumph Triple will do for me, and I'm here to see what the experts have to say about the Trophy.

    Hope to have one soon!

    Hi.  I'm new also, and my Trophy SE is sitting in my garage on the charger, waiting for some riding weather.
    This place has the most helpful people, and lots of fantastic information.
    Welcome!

    Have a Great Day!

    Hi ArkyInNY and :400: to the Forum !

    Have a look at this Topic : TOP TIPS for New Forum Members !

    There you will find Links to some of the more useful Topics for New Members / Owners.

    PLEASE don't be put off by the Topic discussing "Common Faults and Issues" !
    Many of the items in that Topic aren't "Common" at all, or may just be an issue to be aware of,
    or have been already been addressed and resolved.

    If you can, see if the Dealer will let you take the Trophy you sat on for a Test Ride,
    but if they agree make sure you take your Check Book as it's likely you'll want to
    put down a Deposit as soon as the ride is over  !

    Cheers  :821:

    Welcome to the forum.
    As Coconut says, dont be put off by some posts regarding reliability etc.
    In my opinion, it is a very good machine, ideal for the purpose for which it was designed.

    Hi ArkyInNY,  :400: and a virtual  :821:.

    I've had a Trophy since 2014 and now on my second 2016 model with 72,000 miles on it (did about 40,000 on my first one).

    This forum is awesome and if you can't find the answer on here then you ain't looking right!  There is no such thing as a daft question so ask away and your issues regarding this awesome bike will be answered.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave
