    Having owned my TT from new in 2013 I have rarely seen other examples except in dealerships, I travel quite a bit, including on ferries to Europe and have only seen other TT's on the road probably less than four or five times in nine years. Last week I saw two in three days, one, a black model, parked on the grass by the roadside on Dartmoor, then, "stripe me pink!" another blue one as we were travelling from Portreath towards Hayle in Cornwall.
    It certainly made my holiday. :001: :001:

    It can also be a challenge to identify a Trophy travelling in the opposite direction,
    and differentiate it from some other motorcycles with similar designs.

    Take a look at the Members Map which shows
    the location of Members that have opted in to share their location on the map.

    Cheers  :821:

    It is indeed a great resource, but how many are still on the map which are no longer in the ownership of the member that placed the pin?

    So far the only Trophy SE I've seen in person is the one I own.

    I find that most Trophies are a little bit faster and are hard to spot.

    I have never seen a Trophy in the Wild other than when we are meeting at a ride.

    I often get “Is that a BMWU?” My response is I didn’t know they made Motorcycles !

    I believe that Triumph missed the boat!
    To have a Great Motorcycle like the Trophy and never advertise it was sad.

    “Hardly” Davidson needs to make better motorcycles but has great advertising!
    People that have never even been on motorcycles have their gear.

    All I know is that I will ride till I have to Visit the UK and get the hidden Trophy that is in their warehouse “Triumph”
    Or wait till the new Trophy is ready!

    I have some news that it is true that there is a Trophy prototype hidden in the warehouse at the factory.  :745:
