Hello everyone!
I would just like to introduce myself. My name is Greg and I am a 37yr old married with 5 (4 legged) kids - 3 dogs, 2 cats.

I have wanted a bike my whole life but while I was living at home or in college my dad wouldnt allow it. Then I met my now wife and she wouldnt let me get a bike either. So now here I am getting a Brand new dealer left over 2013 Trophy SE...

Had you going that this was my first bike right? LOL that story is almost true. This is the start of my 4th year riding. I started out with a Brand new Yamaha FZ6R. I purchased the bike with no demo rides since I didnt know how to ride yet and took the MSF then. Been in love with that bike since and am keeping it as my daily commuter since it was my first bike, I dont want to let it go.
 
Then this year I finally finished working over my wife to an extent that she caved saying she would be willing to be a passenger. So I was interested in the FJR but wasnt happy with the load capacity. Started researching the Trophy and liked everything I read. My dealer gave me a test ride and offered me 20% off the tail trunk and heated grip option.

Now I am the proud/anxious pending owner of a 2013 New Trophy SE -blue. The dealer still has the bike as I will take delivery once the heated grips get delivered for them to put on as well as a louder horn I gave them.

SO Excited to get this bike. The test ride was awesome!
