Maybe made a new future convert tonight !
« on: October 29, 2013, 12:15:29 AM »
My cousin called me at work today and wondered what I was up to afterwards....I knew what he really wanted ! He drives a BMW K1200 LT and has driven BMW's for years and was just wanting to give my Trophy a go ! So with a smile we traded bikes for a little bit.... I warned him to go easy on the throttle... he was total amazed by the sheer power and response and then by the glass smooth ride and the lack of wind buffeting. I don't know who had the bigger smile when we traded back...during the whole ride he was on the intercom praising the Trophy !

I'm gonna keep working on him ....

Tell him to come to this forum. There is a whole bunch of us out there, having gone the same path...  :008:

quite right but there is still some distance to cover before we match the number of BMWs on the road, at least on this side of the pond :002:
