Recovering motorcycle addict falls victim to Triumph Trophy
« on: November 22, 2013, 04:30:45 am »
I have a problem.  Since 1979 I have been addicted to motorcycles of all shapes and sizes.  From my first dual sport: 1978 Honda 350XL, a 1982 Honda CB750, a 1986 Honda 600XL, a 1997 KLR650, a 2001 Goldwing GL1800, a 2004 KLR650, a 2004 DL1000, a 2003 Goldwing GL1800A, a 2007 FJR 1300, a 2008 DL1000, a 2006 Goldwing 1800, a 2009 Kawasaki C-1400, a 2006 DR650, a 2008 Goldwing 1800,  a 2011 DL650A, a WR250R and a few dirt bikes, scooters, mopeds etc... along the way.  All in search of the perfect motorcycle.

All this led me to my first Triumph...a 2012 Tiger Explorer 1200 last year.  While I love the Explorer and thought I had finally found the bike of my dreams, it was an illusion. 

Today I brought home the most beautiful blue bike ever...my 2013 Triumph Trophy 1200.

While the love affair has just begun, it is clearly connected to the many relationships that came before.  Happy to join this forum and share in the experience that brings such joy.

Hi Rob and  :400:

It does sound like you have what some would describe as a problem....

Although I doubt that any in here would agree!! :745: :745:

Enjoy the new ride
