    Hello fron South East Cornwall!

    Looks like I'm the second Cornish resident to join this weekend! I went into my local bike shop to get a tyre repaired for my V-Strom, and emerged having just bought a Trophy! The V-strom never suited me anyway...altogether too frantic...

    Looking forward to getting to know my Trophy, and this site looks like a superb place to find knowledge.

    All the best everyone, keep the shiny side uppermost...

    Good choice for your new motorcycle.

    Hello from SE Cornwall as well  :001:

    A friend from Saltash brought his Trophy over to St Cleer to work on our Trophies today, so there are a few of us about 👍

    Where abouts are you?

    Hi, I'm all the way over the hill in Harrowbarrow, the other side of Callington from you...I bought the bike from Colin Flashman's fine motorcycle emporium, perhaps you know it/him?

    Very nearby then!

    Colin Flashman’s is handy for you in Harrowbarrow. I’d no idea there was a Trophy in there. How are you finding it?

    Potential for a meet up and a coffee, restrictions allowing?

    Any photos of your new steed?

    Hi I’m the other fella from Saltash😀 Was only up flashmans a couple weeks back to drop a bloodbike in for a tyre replacement, nice to have you onboard and I hope you will enjoy your new purchase as much as I feel I’m going to enjoy mine moving forward.

    Hi chaps, I do not have the Trophy yet as Colin F. is going to service it (mainly, a bleddy good blast down the road and back I suspect) and do an MOT before I pick it up. I only went in there to get a repair done to a tyre from my V-Strom...but I had been thinking for a while that Japanese frantic-ness is not my style (I've mostly had BMW Boxer twins and K-series bikes) and when I saw the Trophy in his shop I thought I'd ask about it. To my surprise, on a brief test ride it wasn't too tall for me - and so I got a low-mileage, if slightly elderly (2001), bike for a good price. I'm looking forward to making its acquaintance properly quite soon.  :002:
