Almost a new owner from Finland
« on: January 04, 2014, 09:42:34 pm »
Hi!

I'm going to get my new Trophy SE on next tuesday. There are no Triumph shops in my home town, Jyväskylä. So my Trophy will travel a bit more than 200 km in a van to me and the van will take my curent bike - Yamaha Midnightstar/Stratoliner - away.  :152:

It is very unusual winter here in the center part of finland. There is no snow but quite a wet roads and temperature now between +2...-1 celcius. So let's hope I can take a little test ride now in January.  :018:

 :400: and I hope the weather stays nice enough to ride before it snows (although that's still a little cold for me!).  You've picked a great forum; enjoy & ride safe!

Yeah, it's too cold for me too. I only have heated grips, seats are without heating. And it's dangerous to ride without spikes anyway when roads are wet and temperature is nearby zero. The test ride I am planning is just to check out that the bike is ok and after that I will wait for dry spring weathers.  :006:

Hello and  :401: to the forum. Enjoy the (non-) winter, while it lasts. Snow will come, for sure  :190:
