Hey Guys,




I just acquired a new-to-me 2015 TTSE. I first test rode a Trophy I'm 2015 at a dealer, but ended up with a Honda CTX1300. Since then I've also had a 19' K1600GTL and a 05' R1150RT. I also have an Indian Challenger. I guess I suffer from some kind of disorder…  :745:

The other day I was browsing around Craigslist and saw this baby.  :169: She has 4300 miles and is in super condition. Included were a set of panniers and liner bags. It didn't come with a top box, which I would like to acquire.

I guess I am late to the party, but glad to have finally arrived!  :046:

magnavra,  :400: A good looking Trophy you've got yourself there. Might be a bit hard to find a topbox. Accessories are getting pretty thin on the ground. Enjoy "farkling" your "new" toy. Cheers.  :821: :028:

 :400: to the forum.

It's like a Flashforward and when it comes to the Trophy, it's never too late to get to the party.

Get comfortable with your new pick.  :821:

 :400: to the forum.  As a former R1200RT (2010) and K1600GTL owner I find the Trophy better overall.

Thanks for the welcome guys.

I took it out last night for an hour ride.  :062: Love it!

I activated the SiriusXM radio before I left -- wow, it actually works well. Nothing like the staticky piece of crap in the K1600GTL!

I've already ordered the parts for top box. It didn't come with heated grips, so I need to make a decision on that…

Re the heated grips. It might be timely to mention one of my wife's favourite sayings.

Welcome! Guess most of us have some type of disorder, as well! Enjoy! :020:
