    Went to the Triumph Dealer and nearly fell over!

    Yesterday I went to the Triumph dealership
    To get new tires the Michelin GT 6ís
    I did ask when I was there I asked about the new Trophy and had it come out yet and one of the sales guy said yes!   :821:

    I nearly fell over, Iíve been busy at work. Iíve been riding when I can and I havenít been spending a lot of time here on the forum.
    But I thought for sure, one of the Twisted Trophies would have sent me a message letting me know. :005:

    So I said, yeah, let me go look at it, so the sales guy walked me over to the new Trophy ,,,,, unfortunately, it had a GS in front of the word trophy. It was one of those. BMWUís.
    At that I just hung my head and walked away.
    I knew BMW was using the word Trophy so in case Triumph came back out with our beloved Trophy.
    I mean, after all, the Trophy couldnít be allowed to exist in the name because it was too much competition for the RT.

    So I have the new Michelin GT 6ís on a real Trophy!

     :046: for your new 6's.  I find them to turn very easily, making the Trophy extremely nimble in changing directions compared to other tires I've had.  It almost feels like a different motorcycle.  Too bad our choices in motorcycles of this nature are so limited now, that is unless you find a great late model with very low miles like I did! :821:

    Let's see, had a Blue one, almost got a black one, just couldn't bring myself to be that camouflaged, so ended up with another Blue one really just because it was a better buy.

     Several months ago, I too saw a GS in an Arizona BMW/Triumph dealership marked with "Trophy".  I thought it was just some competitive marketing scheme, until someone explained that BMW has been sponsoring an off-road rally called the Trophy race for years.  This GS model is just a tribute to that race and actually has nothing to do with Triumph's use of the name.

    On the plus side it has a really nice brushed metallic blue paint scheme.  Probably quite appealing for someone looking to change rides.
