    Thanks, I'm 75 years old!  I'm sure young folks can beat those miles. I purchased the Triumph new in 2013, so it's taken this old fart a while!

    Well done Wingjack, good effort.

    I'm 72 and have a 2016 Black Trophy from new, got about 97,000 miles on mine.  Would have topped the 100K but just had some heart surgery and the medics won't let me ride yet.  But I'm hopeful to join the elite 100,000 Trophy Mile Club soon.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave

    I'm 76 and way out of touch of 100K. :110:  I've only got 44+K between the '13 I had and the '17 model I have now.  Looks like I've got a lot of catching up to do!

     Because of living in Australia my 2016 Black [the fastest colour], has just ticked over 110,000 kilometres. And I'm of similar age at 75 years young. :028: :028:

    Congrats wingjack.

    Please tell us how reliable your TTSE has been over the +100K miles.  Looks like the engine is still in pretty good condition with those mpg figures shown in the pic.

    So, it looks like there are a few old f*rts riding TTSE's on this Forum.  I'm not about to give my exact age except to say I'm north of 70.

     STJIM, have a read of my latest post on Ride Reports and Touring for my last Saddlesore 1600 kilometre IBA ride. My Trophy has been excellent .......apart from a flat battery, easily fixed. It has never let me down. Saying that Murphy's Law will rear it's ugly head now I suppose. It better not as I'm attempting my first Coast to Coast in under 50 hours next Friday. Melbourne to Darwin, 3,738 kilometres. Cheers.  :821: :028:
