    Thanks Digital. Looks like the tram isn't anywhere near full.  :164: :164:

    Thanks to all of you for being there day by day and from time to time enjoying the photos that the owners of this great motorcycle such as the Trophy are reporting.

    Traveling to Turkey with my lady has been one of the best motorcycle trips of our life.

    What a great bike !!! He never tires of doing lilometers and kiometers, at the beginning of gathering information to buy this motorcycle I read that they said it was the jewel in the English crown and they called it the "debora kilometers".

    It has not given a single fault, it behaves with heat of 41 degrees that we have been in some country, as if such a thing, it throws the heat through the air diffusers towards the asphalt and you do not know the heat it gives off.

    HACKLE, I assure you that this photo of the tram is nothing compared to what we have come to see, for a city like Istanbul with approximately 18 million inhabitants, you do not get the idea until you see it with your own eyes. From 10 am onwards it was not possible to circulate. We leave the motorcycle parked for 4 days without touching it and we move by taxi that at the exchange of euro to lira you travel half the city for less than 2 euros, we get to pay for gasoline at 62 euro cents. All very cheap.

    This is the route we did:

    Hola digital .....I like the look of the route you took, a bit of ferry always makes it more exciting.
    I don't see/read about many bikers riding into Turkey (any other Trophies done it?), it must have been so exciting crossing the Bosphorus from Europe to Asia on one of Istanbuls' many bridges, and not just because of the traffic! 
    Well done.  :046:

    Life isn't a dress rehearsal so enjoy it.

    We have wanted to do that trip for years and we never see the time to make the trip. After seeing what happened with the pandemic, it has been when we have thrown in the towel and made that trip.

    I have read several chronicles of people who have ridden with large displacement motorcycles, but I do not know of any case that they have gone with any Trophy.
