G'day from Australia
« on: March 18, 2014, 05:04:22 am »
G'day
My name is Paul Wilton 56 yrs old with a wife of 30+yrs and a 28 yr old daughter. Maryanne (the wife) and I are the proud owners of a Silver Trophy bought from Brisans Motorcycles in Newcastle NSW. This is my 3rd triumph,(94 sprint still got her)+( a 2000 model sprint st, traded her for the trophy) bought the silver beast back in sept 13 with 12.000 klms on the clock. just had the recall work done recently (ECU). need to get a few bling things for her as the year goes on, sheepskin seat covers very soon....already have a radiator guard in place. want to get the RG engine guards(anyone got them yet?) Am on long service leave for 3mths so lots of riding coming up.....this is our Fall(autumn) time of yr, so still warm weather.
Cheers
Paul Wilton

Hi and  :400: to the forum. I have the silver trophy too, IMO both colours are great. I've had the heated seat fitted and noticed it feels slightly higher but also a little more comfortable. I've also ordered a rear mudguard extender because lots of road dirt gets thrown up on the rear of the bike.
Enjoy your bike and this forum mate.  :028:
Cheer up they said, things could be worse. So I cheered up and sure enough things DID get worse!
