    Tomorrow is the day!

    Good evening from Ontario, forum!

    After months and months of waiting, I am finally able to pick up my new (to me) Trophy tomorrow!  It has sat waiting for me at the dealer for four long months due to our horrendous winter.

    We are going to have an unseasonably warm day here tomorrow (a high of 16c) - albeit quite windy. 

    I have ridden in plenty of far worse conditions, including terrible winds, and on various bikes. I don’t anticipate too many problems.

    Super excited to pick her up!  It is about a 200km ride home - all on nicely paved back roads, so I should have plenty of time to enjoy it on its maiden voyage.  :046:

    New Hein Gericke cold weather jacket - check!  New motorcycle boots - check.  New full face Helmet - check.  Also did g out my old (still like brand new) cold weather riding gloves and rain gear - just in case.

    I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, lying in bed in anticipation of my gift tomorrow.   Not sure this one would fit under the tree though!  :001:

    Wish me luck!

    If you happen to have an old Ipod laying around plug into the usb port in the glove box, fire up some Bob Seeger (or your equivalent) and rock on down the road!  Great that your finally getting to ride!  If you have a communication headset that can use earbuds it's even better.  Some have had pairing issues, but I found that pairing the Trophy as the phone and pairing my phone as "second mobile phone" worked very well.  I haven't had to re-pair the headset in a year.

    Enjoy your maiden voyage on the Trophy, MotorMatt!
    Make sure your Dealer checks your tire pressures before you leave, given how long its been sitting.  :084:

    What an amazing ride!!!  200kms of windy bliss!  Very happy with the performance….

    I am coming from a 900lb beast of a bike - a full dress V-twin 1700cc  tourer.  It was like riding a sofa down the road, and handled like one too.  Comfy as could be, but heavy and not meant for “spirited” riding.  The owner of the dealership laughed and couldn’t believe when I told him I was “downsizing” :008: The trophy is still a big bike!

    The trophy handles as well as I have read.  Torque on demand in all gears at all RPMs.  Stereo works well at speeds up to 120km/hr or so. 

    Gonna take some time to get used to the controls of course.

    All in all, big smiles today.

    I can’t figure out how to see the tire pressures anywhere on the display though.  I guess I have some reading to do.  Good thing it came with the manual!

    MotorMatt, It's good to see that you've found out that "good things come in small packages".  :164: :164: :821:

    Try pressing the "i" button to switch between the two available Profile displays,
    and in each try using the Scroll Up and Down buttons to see if the TPS display appears.

    If you have Microsoft PowerPoint, there's a Link in this Topic to a PowerPoint file
    that can be downloaded, which allows you to have a "Play" with the Menus
    on your PC, with no risk of flattening the Trophy Battery ! :

    HOW TO: Navigate the Trophy Menu !

    It is possible that the TPMS system has been disabled,
    either by a Dealer, or previous Owner using their own after
    market equipment such as DealerTool or TigerTool.

    This usually happens when the individual Wheel sensor batteries drain
    after a few years, resulting in Warning messages on the Instrument Panel,
    and the owner doesn't want the cost of replacing the Sensors, or the hassle
    of replacing the batteries ( which can be done, but not designed that way ! ),
    and just wants to get rid of the repetive Warnings.

    If the system HAS been disabled, see what the Seller has to say, depending on how the bike was advertised.  :169:

    Cheers  :821:
