New Horse in the Stable
« on: February 02, 2014, 07:57:01 am »
I picked up my Trophy in late October so, considering the winter weather in Canada, it has only a few km before it went into winter storage.  Accessories all installed waiting for April.
Thanks for welcoming me to this forum.

Hi Theo and  :400: to the Club !

At least in the Winter there's plenty of time for reading up ( lots to read about in here ),
and planing trips, tinkering with the bike, adding new accessories etc.

Spring will soon be here  :028:

I recall reading somewhere that Triumph owners don't understand what the term "riding season" means. IAC, the TTSE is a great cold weather bike with the heated seat and heated grips and adjustable windscreen and such, which means you will be riding earlier than most with other types of bikes!

In a few hours, I am going on a ride on my TTSE and it will be around  +20F / -7C when I leave the house here. But I guess that would be considered a warm day up there anyway!

Welcome to the forum, Theo!  I'm with Don; what's a riding season?  I'm going to brave the mid-50s (F) weather in the morning and get a ride in before the Super Bowl starts.  Yep, it's finally cooling off here...  :017:

Welcome  :046:  A bit of cold weather would be great. Just got back from a 2000kms weekend ride in temperatures up to 42c.  The Trophy handles cold and hot weather it seems, as the bike did not notice nearly as much as the rider!  10,000kms up now.

 :400: riding year round is all good but when you have to 4x4 to get out of the neighborhood then the bike stay in the garage for me...

Hopefully we will all be riding soon.
