Greetings from Mechanicsburg, PA
« on: May 12, 2014, 08:17:36 pm »
Just joined the forum and picked up a new 2013 Trophy SE this past Saturday from Yamaha/Triumph/KTM of Camp Hill where I traded in my 2012 Tiger Explorer.  I had traded a 2007 BMW R1200RT for the Explorer two years ago and missed the ergos and weather protection of the BMW, but love the Triumph 1215cc engine, so the Trophy seems to be the best of both worlds.  The many gadgets and features of the Trophy are just icing on the cake.

I'm a long time Triumph fan and currently have a restored 1966 TR6SC Trophy Special, a fully-farkled 2012 Tiger 800XC and a 2004 Bonneville T100 that I have extensively customized to resemble a 1961 Bonneville T120R.  I have previously owned four Speed Triples, three Sprint STs, a Tiger 1050, a Scrambler and a couple of old and new Bonnevilles.  Looking forward to some touring on the Trophy.

If you're in the area, look me up.

Welcome to the Forum :400:    Can't count the number of times I've been through Mechanicsburg on my way to and from Lexington, VA to Canandaigua, NY.  Must be well over 50 times.  You live in a great area.

Welcome to the forum.
Good choice. I'm sure you'll lover the bike.
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.

Thanks!  Small world, I was just skiing at Bristol Mountain about 5 weeks ago.  Beautiful area.

It sure is but even smaller than we think  :114:  You can see the lights of Bristol Mountain from my brother's house.  And I was there in mid March!  Next to time I ride up to see him I'll stop in Mechanicsburg.
