    Third Time's a Charm...

    Or something like that.
    Greetings all. The name is Darrell and up until 2 days ago, I was mostly just browsing the forum trying to learn all i could about the Trophy. Two previous failed attempts at getting one didn't discourage me and as of 9/20, I now own a new-to-me 2016 Trophy SE with only 15074 miles. I switched to the Triumph from a BMW R1200RT literally by accident - tagged a deer really hard recently and the BMW lost.
    Nothing against the BMW, but after just one short introductory ride on the Trophy, I think I'm going to like it better.
    First on the to-do list is to check the ignition switch wiring then maybe the pesky shifter bolt. I'm also planning to check the rear shock wishbone bearings.
    Of course, it doesn't really need anything else.

     :400: to the forum.  Hope you weren't injured in the process.  Those pesky cervids are everywhere in Texas, and it pays to stay off the back roads early in the morning and late in the evening.  Now there are even Axis deer in the wild in the Hill Country that escaped from game ranches and they're bigger than the resident white tails.

    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.
