    TTSE moved on...

    So, I sold my 2014 TTSE - it had almost 87,000 miles on it, all good miles.  Unfortunately that meant that there wasn't much financial value left.  Looking to trade it in, some dealers were not interested in it at all, or, if they were, they only offered a nominal value.  It was taking too long to get parts, 5-10 business days, for the most part and it seemed that the cost of inspections were increasing.  Hopefully, the new owner will get enjoyment out of it...

    I replaced it with a 2021 Honda Gold Wing Tour - it's about 142 lbs heavier than the Trophy but the weight is carried a lot lower, so to me, it doesn't feel any heavier.  It's also a little narrower than the Trophy.  It's more like a sport tourer than a touring bike like the older Gold Wings.  Oddly, for a touring bike, it has no DC power outlets, other than a USB connector in the front storage.  I've ordered the Trophy left side, hinged hella plug to install in a similar position on my GW.

    In any case, I plan on sticking around here for the foreseeable future mostly because this is a good forum.

    Not too many of us sell our Trophy to get a heavier bike.  :020:

    Yeah, I know...  Sometimes you just have to go against the grain.  It handles light...   :156:
