What the Trophy does Really really well...
« on: January 15, 2014, 12:59:42 AM »
As a counterpoint to gripes about batteries, heads, and panniers.....
Today I clocked out at 3:00. Walked out to the parking lot. Threw my lunchbox in the top box. And took the scenic route home. The sun was out, the road was dry, and the Clackamas river Dr. was just calling my name. Twistys at 60's!
THATS the way you end the work day my friends. And now Im tipping one back in front of the fire.
The End!
Brian
I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about.

I know what you're saying...sometimes reading the forum makes me think of selling the Trophy. But once I'm out on a back road riding through the turns, usually way over the speed limit, with the Sirius radio playing in my helmet there's no other bike I want to be on.

Someone on this site has already said that bad news travels fast, but we never hear of the good things about our Trophies.  I am sure the good far outweighs the bad. I just came off of a 2004 BMW 1150RT. If you go to the BMW forums you will see all sorts of nastiness about that bike. Brake failures, spline failures, rear drive failures, etc. It is enough to make you stay far away from BMW's. In reality I put in 10 years and just shy of 100,000 miles and the only issue I had was a bad stick coil. Kind of proves the point I am trying to make.

Nice one Brian - here - have another ! :030:

Made me think "Triumph recalled my bike to fit a Centre Stand bracket,
which will prevent future problems, and I not only thank them for that,
but also for the opportunity to ride my Trophy a few more miles taking it
to the Dealer to have the work done !"  :152:

More good news I say.

Separate issue with QueenslandKen's bike, although annoying, brought two like minded riders together to solve a problem, share the solution, and get back into riding.

Out of something bad comes something good.

Please keep bringing the good news stories as life is too short to spend it complaining (Whinging) and blaming.
