Future Trophy owner
« on: March 24, 2013, 08:31:21 PM »
Just sold my Yamaha Raider and in discussions with the Triumph dealer for a new Trophy, looking at a BMW R1200RT, but leaning hard toward the Trophy.

Looking forward to many hours of fun on the site, but more on the bike.

Hi Richards.

My suggestion is to ride both then make you mind up. The Trophy is a great bike.

Road both, leaning very hard toward the Trophy, question? Has anyone purchased the comfort seats that Triumph has for the Trophy?
If so, are they worth switching?

Thanks

By comfort seats I assume you mean the heated ones. I bought the lowered, heated ones (i am only 5' 9" with a 29" inner leg). They are great and well worth the money. I commute to work here when it is below freezing (but with dry roads) and the seat makes (along with the heated grips) makes all the difference between going to work on the bike or going in the car. I also purchased and rear heated seat and my gf says that it makes a lot of difference to the ride in cold weather for her.

Berber, I believe the comfort seats have a gell insert and are non heated only. I too wonder what they're like though I must say that I've found the standard seat very comfortable, even on 400k days, and this weather I'm glad of the heat!
