Picked up my new Trophy Fri
« on: May 03, 2014, 10:32:44 pm »
 :001: Did 250 miles today loving it. I have the faster lighter none SE version not listed on the Triumph web site but still available for those of use who can turn a knob on the rare occasion we need to alter the suspension also I dont listen to the radio in the car let alone on the bike I am to busy concentrating on having fun and staying alive and the 5lt  waterproof container under the seat were the radio should be is very handy. My previous bike was a Tiger sport fantastic bike I think the 1050 engine is better than the 1200 smother faster much more refined the 1200 feels like a diesel compared to the 1050 more laid back. That is why I changed more luxury shaft drive better mpg and to slow me down. I am geting 57mpg! that is 12mpg more than the Tiger. I tried the Explorer but I couldn't get on with the light throttle and poor screen also I think the Trophy handles better which surprised me on the test ride its just so flickable.  :821: have a virtual drink on me and I hope I haven't offended anybody who paid £2k extra fore all those confusing buttons. You guest it Im a bit of a luddite

Welcome to the world of Trophy ownership.........we here in Australia don't get the choice Triumph Australia don't import the non SE model..........must admit to liking the ease of the suspension adjustment :028: ..........

 :400: to the forum. I got the all singing and dancing SE version. Triumphs ex launch model with all the bells and whistles attatched and ready to go. Love the radio and sticking my Ipod on. Heated seats were brilliant in the cold weather too. Glad your enjoying yours. I always have a big grin after Ive been out on mine. Stay safe.  :152:

Welcome.

Only the SE is available here in the States.
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.

 :400: to the forum.  Guess I'm also addicted to the buttons, but the stable handling is where it shines for me.
