Hi from UK
« on: July 28, 2021, 01:14:36 pm »
Hi All,

I bought (for my 1st bike) a Triumph Trophy SE 1215 (2014 plate).  As I only passed my test literally 2 months ago, I was repeatedly told that this bike is waaaaay too big for my first bike.   Now I'm not new to riding bikes, it's just been a while, and I'm not new to driving either (30+ yrs)......

....... This bike is awesome!!  I bought it cheap due to high mileage from a riding instructor (66k), this way should I drop it (it does have crash bars  :028:) it would be ok to live with.

Anyway, I'm glad I made the choice I did...... Just need to buy some better clothing now.

Welcome to the Forum!  You picked up a pretty clean looking scoot - it looks like it was well taken care of.  Enjoy and be safe!

 :400: ArfurD. Enjoy your new toy. Slowly, slowly is the message to get used to the weight [ top heaviness] of the Trophy. Cheers.  :821: :028:

One of the reasons I've chosen to ride alone for first year and not in a group playing catch-up.
