Hello from Surrey UK
« on: November 18, 2013, 01:45:54 PM »
Hi everyone, new(ish) owner here  :046:
Picked it up on the 5th October after a test ride
(note to self: never bring your wallet when going for a test ride!!)
I can't get enough of riding the damn thing and definitely the best bike I've ever owned
Had few issues, most of them sorted under warranty,  but I'll post the list somewhere else on the forum
For now I just wanted to say HI  :002:

Welcome!  I didn't expect to buy mine at the time either...  It seems to be a common problem!

Truth is, I had been thinking about buying a TT since the launch last year, but just couldn't justify it.
I've been considering the BMW RT1200 for a few years, but the cost for the extras and servicing put me off, without mentioning all the engine and electric  problems I read about and the fact that after a couple of test rides I still wasn't convinced.
I had a ST1300 for 6 years and moved to a GTR1400 (great bike), mainly because there was nothing else in this class worth considering at the time.
Until now that is  :017:
After just one test ride on the Trophy I thought I'd find any excuse to justify it. And I did  :153:
I still miss the power of the GTR14, and the larger paniers and top box, but the TT is just pure pleasure to ride.

Hello Mordiglio and  :401: to the forum.

No worries about the (relative) lack of power compared to a GTR1400 - you'll find yourself coming home after a ride with the TT with a much broader smile on your face. And this feeling won't go away  :156:
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
