    Hi From A New Member

    I have been riding since 1979.  My last seven motorcycles were Hondas and I never thought I would ride anything but Hondas, much less a Triumph. I am 6' tall and have very long legs so the height of the Triumph was not at all problematic for me.  I joked, if Honda lowered the Goldwing seat any more, I wouldn't be able to ride it.  I owned a 1991 ST 1100 and sitting on the Triumph Trophy SE brought back memories of that wonderful sport tour bike.  I immediately fell in love with the SE.  I didn't even need to test ride it. It fit so perfectly that I was certain riding it would be absolutely wonderful.  I was right.  I just returned form a 2200 mile trip to the 35th Anniversary Meeting of Women In The Wind International, held in Toledo, Ohio.  We have two meets per year all over the country and I try to ride to both of them unless it is snowing. 

    I rode back roads through the mountains with ease.  Very responsive motorcycle and very peppy! I live in Ocala, which is central Florida so I do not get to ride too many twisty roads.

    I am married to "Redneq" who has the silver Trophy.  I made him get his own so I could ride mine! I also noticed there are not too many "pink" map pins.  Come on ladies!  This is a fun bike.

    Welcome.
    Get out of Florida every now and then and put that bike through it's paces!
    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.

    Welcome to the Forum :400:   There are a few lady members, not all riders such as yourself.  Still I think the Forum would benefit from more "pink" pins, as you suggest
