Hello, Collect my Trophy SE on the 1st of march, Took out a demo and had to buy one, simple as that.  Take my advice, Don't ride a Trophy, unless you are Seriously in the market. That way lies madness. Great forum by the way.

Hi vanthal, and  :400: to the Club !

Did you get it from Stratstone's ?

If so you should be OK - I have them fairly well trained now !  :028:

I fell for that, went to the dealer just for a look around and they organised a test ride on the Trophy and the Explorer, took out the Trophy first and when I went back they had the Explorer ready for me to take out. Told them not to bother with the Explorer and did the deal for the Trophy there and then, pick up on the 1st March  :046:

Thank you all for the replies. Brought the bike from Pidcock Triumph  in  Long Eaton, who have been very efficient and helpful. Having owned more bikes over the years than I care to remember, for the first time in ages I am really excited about the Trophy. It's a good feeling.

Welcome Vanthal from sunny blackpool  :017:
  I bought my trophy after dropping my mother off at train station and called in dealer to look round , no intention or money to swap my loved st1300 Honda in for but a deal was put
to me and the rest is history ,
   P.S that was the easy part going home and telling the wife our account was considerably lighter was a bit more tricky :192: :192: :164: :020:
