Quick poll... Just wondering, since the TT SE release in 2013,  who out there has racked up some impressive miles.  I would like to know how long you have owned the bike, total distance travelled and in general, how has the bike performed.  Any major issues?  I have had my 2014 TT SE for about 2 months and am coming up on 4000km.... No issues so far.

I purchased in Feb 2013. I did 14,000 miles until Oct that year when I got rid of it.

The faults are too numerous to mention but are well documented on here.

All that was left to change was the fairing, loom, bars, seats, drive shaft and wheels.

I had a bit of a lemon. To be fair to Triumph everything was replaced.

I got my 2013 TTSE at the end of September last year. I rode it for about 6 weeks before winter hibernation. The Beast came out of hibernation in April and since then I've split riding time between it and the Bonneville. To date almost 6000 miles on the TTSE and I'll soon be doing a trip around the Gaspe Bay peninsula, Quebec and a trip to the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia.

The only issue I've has was that the battery failed within about 3 weeks of getting the bike. Once that was changed out all of the miles have been trouble free and fun.
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.

Bought April 2013 12000 miles becasue I split the riding between Sprint and Tiger as well as TT.  Apart from recalls no problems.  apart from new tyres front and back cos I keep riding it especially if the weather looks bad (or good) or I have along way to go (or short) or if I have lots of luggage (or just the laptop)  :156: in other words I would pick it every time apart from keeping the miles down. 

I ride all year round so done similar miles on the other two in the time and only a few hundred on the MV.

I took delivery of my silver 2013 Trophy SE on January 5, 2013 as one of the "launch kit" bikes ordered through my dealer in October 2012. Since then I have made two lengthy tours around the US and Canada and thereby put just over 61K miles on the clock. The bike has performed well with only minor problems that were quickly resolved under warranty. Although the various recalls and service bulletins were executed, I never had any problems with the items referenced in those notices.
