Nice review but I disagree with the author's initial premise.  The Trophy IS a full on tourer.  Just because it handles so well doesn't mean it is a sport touring bike. It does everything a full tourer should do.  More importantly I have kept my 955 Sprint ST.  Now THAT is a sport touring bike.  Much as I like my Trophy it cannot handle as well as my ST.

I found that whilst he was generally positive he was dissing a few unnecessary things, he said it is top heavy and tricking to push around, i'm a sort arse not particularly strong and I find it is easier to shunt around than my old RT, also he said that there was too many switches and he was adjusting the screen instead of putting the grips on, well you get used to were the switches are just like you would in a car you shouldn't need to look down to find them, and the screen ! that's why its electric bloomin adjust it ! don't have it too low ! you wait till I see him.

I spose we are biast though.

He is right about one thing. It doesn't talk to me and hasn't the fun factor other bikes have. Don't get me wrong, it does exactly what it says on the tin and for my 100 mile commute each day and touring it is virtually perfect. I don't sit there in the evening though and say 'sod it - time for a burn' which I used to with my CB1300.
