Hi Spudley and  :400:  to the Club !

If you end up regretting your purchase I will be amazed !  :169:

There haven't been that many problems really, probably no more than any other new Model
from any pther Manufacturer, but you can rest assured that Triumph are very good
at tackling any problems which is why they redesigned some parts, and issued recalls where appropriate.

One thing you will definitely not regret on your ride home is the weather protection from the Fairing and Screen  :028:

Hi - I am picking mine up next week from Shipley ( assume yours is from there)  and have the same concerns. On e of the main raesons for buying new versus the excellent value available on year old bikes is that I hope that Triumph has sorted out its teething problems and incorporated all the fixes into models now being delivered. It also strikes me that despite all these problems most owners posting seem still to rate he bike and triumph highly which speaks volumes.

Welcome by a fellow newbie - be interesting to keep each other posted via the forum how we get on with the bike/dealer

Hi spudly.... Welcome to the club! Great people with plenty of experience and advice...

Don't let the threads on problems upset you, there have really been few and all on the whole dealt with by Triumph and the dealers. The ones with problems are always more vocal than the many hundreds who are very happy with their rides.

As you are in the UK there are a couple of meets on the horizon you might be interested in.

Firstly, Trophy,an12 is trying to arrange a meet at the Ponderosa cafe on the Horseshoe pass but dates not yet confirmed. See here

Also, I have arranged a VIP tour of the Vulcan at Robin Hood Airport, South Yorks with a photoshoot of our bikes in front of the aircraft on Friday, 20th June. Either or both would be a great way to meet up with a few of your fellow UK Trophy owners!

Hi Spudly, I had the exact same feelings when I was purchasing mine, but then I started researching other makes on other forums and the same sorts of things/problems were being discussed there as well.

I made the leap and have not looked back.  :152:
