Cheers Trophy
« on: November 18, 2013, 01:51:14 PM »
Have decided to change my Trophy as my wife has decided not to tour anymore since our Black Forest tour in June with sweltering temperatures, 41degrees C peak and riding for the best part of four days at 35+ C!!!!!! :159: So not much point in keeping it just to pop out for lunch on, have traded it for a Speed Triple with an 8 ball (company) paint job, after test riding a demonstrator two up for 2-3 hrs she was quite happy :152:

Cheers all.

Sorry to lose you - there can't be many who have "downgraded"  from a a Trophy to a Street Triple :153:

... and fancy trying to pass the blame on to the wife  :015:

Good luck and safe riding  :028:

Changing bike should not prevent you from participating to this Forum, at least I hope  :017:
An old biker must be a good rider

Certainly shouldn't prevent participation but I gathered from Triplemania's language that it was a farewell post.   We always want our members to stay

I got my Trophy specifically for two-up touring. I had a bike that we perfectly suitable for me alone or a brief ride with the wife.
Can't say as I blame you for choosing a bike more specific to your needs.
Best of luck!
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Changing to a Speed Triple, have had the Street but a bit too small for two-up.

Thanks for your kind comments, will pop in now and then.  :821: :152:

I couldn't contemplate changing from a TT to anything else.  Surely when you hop on the Triple the first thing that would hit you is the lack of, well, everything?  During a recent trip I had the opportunity to swap bikes with a friend of mine and as soon as I sat on his Kawasaki 2013 ZX10R I was appalled. To think I used to ride these little things.  The Seat on the ZX10 felt like sitting on a Mouse Pad and I felt like I was lying down on the damn thing.  Great power of course but that is about all I can say about it.
