New Guy from Anacortes,Wa
« on: July 17, 2014, 08:34:32 pm »
Saw the Trophy last Feb. at the motorcycle show in Seattle and it impressed me enough to want one.  Didn't  want to pay msrp so went looking on craigslist and found one w/ top box & heated grips in Madison,Wi., slightly broken in with under 2,000 miles.  Had a great trip back visiting friends and getting to know the Trophy(love the cruise control).  Thinking about lowering the bike a little(I'm 5'7'') and would like to have a little more leg room from the foot pegs, plus some highway pegs would be really nice on longer trips.   :002: Jim B.

Welcome!  I am also new to the trophy and this forum. I have often looked at used bikes in other areas and thought it would be fun to purchase and ride home. I once bought a Harley from a dealer in St Louis but a work conflict came up and I had to have the bike shipped. The crazy part of it is, in CA you have to have over 7500 miles on a non-CA emissions bike before you can register it in e state. The ride home would have been enough to put me over that. As it turned out I talked the dealer into writing the bill of sale with over 7500 miles and then rode it around for a month before registering the bike. That was 9 years ago.

Sounds like a great ride. Welcome.
