    Crowbar needed

    I need to borrow a crowbar to pry my foot out of my mouth after stating I wouldn't buy a British bike made in Thailand.  A little over a month ago I traded my K1600gt in on a 2021 Thaiumph GT Pro.  I just couldn't help myself.  I needed to get something lighter (getting older) so  I took a test ride and was hooked.  Just returned from a 12 day 3500 or so mile ride from Florida to the western portion of Virginia.  The bike performed flawlessly.   It really is a likable motorcycle.   Had thought about a Yamaha Tracer 9GT but just couldn't get away from Triumph.  So I have posted my 13 TTSE for sale.  Sad day, thought I would never sell it, but just don't need two bikes.  I have enjoyed and learned a lot from this forum and its great members.  If the Trophy doesn't sell I guess I won't be too disappointed.    I'll just be forced to ride once and awhile.  Terrific bunch of people here and thanks to all.

    It's a great looking scoot!  I'm sure you'll have many, many fun miles on the new ride.  :152:

    Thanks Yaga, I ordered and mounted the side cases,  stood back and thought I may need a "wide load sign "

    As you get older, putting your foot in your mouth gets harder. If I achieve it, getting my foot back out again often needs help  :192: having said that, you'll certainly have fun doing it  :007:

    You could get some of that reflective black and yellow striped tape - that should help.   :745:

    I do like how the LH case is wider than the RH to account for the exhaust.  Looks like the case designer did their best to maximize available storage, which is a good thing.  And with cases like those, you shouldn't need any crash bars in the back, especially since if you did add some, you wouldn't need a kickstand anymore.   :001:

    Paint them black and they won't make it's butt look so wide.  Ooops, they're already black, so it's butt must really be that wide! :745:
