Hello from the Great White North, eh
« on: January 04, 2014, 07:19:36 am »
 :002: Just introducing myself here.  Live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada.
Have a Tiger 800 and have had numerous bikes over the years, starting with my first - a Harley 350 sprint in 1975 in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Have just put $ down for the Trophy SE to be delivered in March, when the snow melts I guess.
Saw my first Trophy SE last year - 4 of them when boarding a ferry in New Zealand last February when on a 6 week vacation motorcycle tour - very spiffy bunch of motorcycle magazine writers group from Australia on a Triumph sponsored sports writers promotion tour.  There were also 4 new Tigers and more - quite a sight.
FYI, I did a motorcycle swap deal with a Kiwi cyclist I met on a forum - I flew to Kiwiland and used his bike for 6 weeks during their summer and he came to Western Canada US and borrowed mine for 6 weeks.  Worked out great for both of us and we are great friends now with future trips planned together in Tasmania, Australia and Southwestern US.  At least we say we will be.  Food for thought for us folks on the forum.
Cheers and glad to meet you all.
Rich
Attached is photo i took during my NZ trip. NZ is probably the best place in the world for road cycling - great winding roads everywhere.

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

I bet you can't wait for the snow to go.
