    Hi All,
    15 years and many tours with the last Trophy 1200 model.
    Wouldn't have traded except for the MPG!
    Now 3 years with my SE and I'm very glad I did.
    Precious little distance covered in the last two years unfortunately, but here's to lots of mile munching in 2022.

    That's what I remember about my 1998 4 cylinder Trophy.   The thirst for fuel !!

    The Trophy 1215 is far more frugal.

    558  :400: from a long way down under. Cheers. If your very careful [use cruise control] and slow your speed down to about 90 kilometres per hour you'll get 500 kilometres out of the tank. I know, I had to, to get to the next fuel availability.  :152: :152:

     :763: 'Hackle' for the economic riding tip.

    I discovered that zero miles remaining on the instruments means exactly that!
