    Hello to all members,
    I've ridden a Yamaha XVS 1100 for the past 10 years which I love but, due to the chrome work I only ride it in fair weather.

    As the Yamaha only has a speedo and nothing else, I decided I wanted a second bike, one with all the bells and whistles. Due to this I had the Honda pan-European in mind so, went to a large motorbike hyperstore, whilst there I saw the Triumph Trophy for the first time and loved it and more importantly so, did the wife! A short time later I bought one from a private seller with only 18K on the clock, a year later I am still in love with the bike even with the odd gremlin with the TES system, not wanting to fully calibrate.

    P.S - to all members who live in the midlands (UK), I went for a bite to eat at the Hinckley Triumph Factory last weekend, the guy there told me that they are starting a bike meet on Wednesday night's starting on 13th April, with live bands and food available.

    Thanks
    Peaky Biker

     :400: to the forum.  The suspension system only calibrates every 50 cycles of the ignition switch as I understand, and it should be sitting still until it completes it's calibration before riding off.  If I put mine in gear while it's calibrating it stops the procedure.

    Hi Peaky biker, and :400: to the Club !

    I used to live in Tamworth, but moved to South Birmingham in 2015.
    I still visit friends there regularly so will keep an eye out for you on the road !

    Back then Sutton Motorcycles were not a Triumph Dealer or I might have stayed !  :008:

    ( Those I know who have used them say they are very reliable.  :169: )

    The Triumph Factory Visitor Centre "Bike Nights" are from 6pm to 8pm,
    and their intention is to hold them on the second Wednesday of evey month.


    Cheers  :821:

    Thank you all for the warm welcome   :763:

    As for the gremlins with the TES system calibrating some times it works some times i get the hand book message.

    (A)When i bought the bike it has been lowered with lust racing components (dont know what they are called) could this cause a problem.

    (B)When i took the bike in to my(new) local Dealer for the ignition wire recall i explained the problem to them and they thought it was probably the battery. But i have the battery on a trickle charger when not in use and the lowest it reads is 12.6 volts.

    (C)When i start the bike it is on the kickstand and i dont even look at the bike let alone touch it. Also i asked the dealer am i surposed  to be sat on the bike when its calibrating or not, some said yes some said no (They had not seen a Trophy se before)

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :002:
