So long everyone
« on: January 18, 2014, 06:10:28 PM »
We'll today I went to a Honda dealership and am trading the Trophy in for an 8 month old, Red and White, CB1300 with 1100 miles on the clock. I have simply had enough with all the problems. I shall hang around here if that is okay though.

That's a real shame. Although, I've seen pictures of the CB1300 and it looks like a great bike.

Understand.  That's what happened with the R1150RT.  I loved it, but couldn't depend on it.. Very disappointing... Good luck with the Honda!

I went back to the Honda because in spite of the thousands of miles we travelled on it, it never, ever let us down. I shall miss the weather protection of the Trophy though.

Sorry to hear the news.

I'll enjoy the ride now, now that it's running great.
I was a bit disheartened, well very angry with mine with it's couple of little faults.

Only time and Kms will tell.
