    I have been a part of the Triumph family for almost a week now and so far I love my Trophy SE. I am a high school/college science teacher in a really small school in northern Iowa, USA who likes to run marathons and travel the country by motorcycle. For the last several years I have been riding Yamaha Ventures dating from 1983-1991 models. I still have a 1987 Venture but am trying to sell it. I am so excited to have a Triumph finally. When I was 18 and still in USAF Tech school in Illinois I wanted to buy a newly repossessed Triumph Bonneville but I didn't have any money. It has been a long time but I now have my Triumph. Look forward to many years with it.

    This summer I rode my 1991 Yamaha to all of the lower 48 states on a quest for the best barb-b-Que in the country. 13,000+ miles but it was time to trade her off for a Trophy.

    That's a long wait for you first Triumph, but I hope you enjoy it as much as you deserve too after such patience!  :001:

    This is my Smoke Chasing 2013 map riding my not so always dependable '91 Yamaha Venture. I can't wait to do some long distance riding on my Trophy.
