Welcome TriumphTwo - I can feel your excitement! I too kept my Sprint ST for shorter distances (and the sound of the engine!). We toured your country before Covid, down to Munich for Oktoberfest, and absolutely loved the roads, scenery, beer, food, and civil drivers. Would love to do it again. Enjoy the new ride!

Ich will auch so ein T-Shirt!!

Where did you get that from?
I am surprised to hear the TTSE is so rare in my birthland. I drooled over it many years and after having one now: It feels phantastic.

Hi Cecilt,
 thanks for the warm welcome. Depending on Covid, the plan is to visit international Triumph meetings with the Trophy. And I will go to see scotland as well one day.
As soon,  as I have the Trophy, traveling will start.
Best regards
Michael

Hi Fluxxcomp,

*die gibt es zu kaufen*  :008:
Where are you originally from, if I may ask?
I got the shirt from eBay UK. Shipping and tax made it expensive, but we
Only live once, don't we?

I haven't checked if the number of 78 TTSE in Germany is true, but on
Parking lots in front of biker-friendly events I have only seen one since June last year.
Even on the TMOC meeting 2 weeks ago, only one TTSE was present.
It definitely is a rare bird over here.
Interestingly enough, when I entered my location on the members map, the next TTSE is only
20mls away from here, it's owned by a gentleman from UK.

Best regards
Michael

I was born in East Germany and moved to Nuremberg in 1990- since 2012 in Sunny California (well foggy Bay Area in the summer). I "measured" the curves north of Nuremberg on some rentals, Sprint ST and GT amongst them. Let me know if you need touring tips.

I rented a TTSE in Las Vegas 2018 and got fully infected, needed to have one... Now I do!
