Thinking of getting a Trophy
« on: April 24, 2014, 07:24:46 pm »
Hey guys, I come from the land of the Thunderbird.  I test rode a Trophy, and I loved it.  Only problem is, I'm tall.  I have a 34 inch inseam.  Is there a peg lowering kit that would help with the problem?  Thanks guys.

Hi Speedshaker,

There's a thread running about lowered footpegs here : Lowered foot pegs,
although I think these are "home made" - I'm not sure if there are any commercially made ones just yet....

Have you also considered the European version of the riders seat ?

For some reason the European seat, which is adjustable between approx 805 and 825cm high,
is described ( over here in the UK ), as the "Standard" seat,
and we describe the US version of the seat as the "low" seat !

The "Low" Rider seat is adjustable between 775 and 795 cm,
which equates to the European Standard seat being 30 mm higher  :028:

There's another discussion on this going on here : Comfort Seat from Triumph
where you will find some other US Forum members that are considering the same option  :169:

G'day SpeedShaker,

Welcome to the Forum. Forgive the Numptey question was the rider seat on the high setting? Nevertheless, you'll really enjoy the TT SE  :062:

Welcome. What did you think of the ride?
How long did you ride?
Was there a problem?
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
