What was your last ride?

Mine was my lovely blue Fazer. Bought it before I even passed my test and ran it for 9 years. Great bike but the Trophy is streets ahead in every department.

This is my "old" Trophy outside the house where I was born.

Loved that bike, but the "new" Trophy is just SO much better  :169:

Alan, Great bike indeed :028:
These are my two bikes before the Trophy: a 2000 ST 1100 Pan European (dead on the battefield); a 1993 Suzuki VX 800 bought in Canada in 1996 with 593kms on the clock, still own it.

An old biker must be a good rider

Well, I still ride the other three bikes listed below. Before the 71 BMW R75/5, I had a 1968 Honda CL350. Before that, a Honda Trail 90. That was almost 50 years ago!

Well I still ride my Triumph 955 ST but I did have to sell my Thruxton to buy the Trophy. Before that many years of Triumphs, BSAs and Nortons. And a couple of Honda 750s

All four of these bikes I still ride, but not often enough:

My 1971 BMW R75/5 at the Plugas Water Temple   parking lot in Redwood City, CA:



My 2002 Suzuki DR200 SE on the way up to 8,740'  Babbitt Peak, CA:



My 1984 Yamaha Venture and me at Virgina City, NV:



And my 2013 TTSE the day I took delivery less than a month ago (in front of my Reno, NV home):
