Harley out....Triumph in....
« on: August 31, 2014, 11:30:53 pm »
I've been riding Harley's for a little over 20 years. Loved the Springer and Ultra Classic but it was time for a change. I bought a new 2013 Trophy last week and put on 600 miles. Now I'm asking myself why I didn't do this sooner. I'm not a Harley hater but this Trophy is a blast to drive.

I had a 2003 FLHT that I rode for the last 2 years, I had always ridden Hondas but as a real true blue American, I had to own a Harley once in my life.  Bought a 2013 Trophy SE about 5 weeks ago and asked myself the same question you did.  I sold the Harley to someone who was as excited to buy it as I was 2 years ago.  I have put 1300 miles on it in 5 weeks and love it except for the audio system which is driving me nuts.  That is for another conversation.  Ride safe. :821:

Welcome. It's not Harley per se but the difference between cruisers and sport tourers. They are as different as night and day.
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 group!  I've never been a Harley fan, but I'm not a Harley hater either.  You ride what makes you happy.  I just feel sorry for those who will never open their eyes and look at what else is out there!  Glad you joined us!
