Trophy sighting near Houlton, ME, Aug 12
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:55:43 pm »
A relative of mine is on an RV trip to Nova Scotia/East Coast.  They shot this picture the morning of August 12 near Houlton, ME and Canadian border.  Is it any one on this forum?  No particular reason, just curious.

I don't think he is on the forum but I know who it is.

It's my good buddy Duane Scheppelgruber. (Last name modified to protect the innocent.) I ride with him all the time. In fact I was on the same trip and shared a cottage in Nova Scotia. A dead battery in my Trophy rendered it useless (temporarily) and we took the wife's Cooper MINI to Cape Breton Island to ride the Cabot Trail.

I'll alert Duane to his notoriety.
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.

This is awesome. Not often I am in the passing lane😉  That was a great trip to Cape Breton.

Yeah, we have a winner.
The person who took the photo is an avid motorcyclist, so they know what my blue Trophy looks like.  Therefore, the reason for the photo.

That's pretty cool!  Just another reason to be riding a Trophy instead of a Gold Wing, H-D, BMW, or any other 'common' bike.  People notice us!

Triumph have had to discontinue the Lunar Silver on the Trophy SE model,
mainly because they still have so much Blue paint in stock  :153:
