« on: February 04, 2014, 12:39:18 PM »

welcome Terry. To be honest it depends what you want your bike to do. As a tourer, the TT is great.

Welcome to the forum  :400: Have you taken a ride test with the Trophy? if not, I suggest you do, that would undoubtly help you in making the decision  :002:

Test rode a 6 month old blue SE - loved it, I was going to take out the Explorer but after the Trophy told them not to bother as it would be a disappointment.

Ah the agony of choice.
I rode a 1200 rt, a gsa, the k1600, an explorer and a trophy, not the worst day i had, tbh, the main reason i took the trophy over the explorer, the fuel tank size, apart from that, the explorer was a damn damn good bike.
But love my trophy

 :400: fellow newbie. I. like you have the same problem. Trying to find a bike that meets both mine and my wife's needs (pillion) is a huge problem. The new FJR was one option but who thought a tourer could only have side cases or a top box and not both! The TT is the only bike that ticks all the boxes.
Your always in the .... it's just the depth that varies
