Ciao from the Dolomites
« on: September 05, 2014, 08:19:43 am »
Hello everyone!

I am Gabriel, 40 years old, writing from the north of Italy, right in the middle of the Dolomites region  :016:

I am very often in the UK as well, where I lived for a few years. Not as much as I used to, but often around Europe by motorbike, therefore had a few touring bikes in the past 15 years.

Triumph always tempted me and this could be the time I step on a Trophy!  :016:

They sold only a few around here; tomorrow I will go and see a 2012 model, 2013 reg still at the dealer with 45 (yes 45!) km on the clock!  :156: Any issues I should pay attention to?

Looking forward to exchanging thoughts and impressions on this forum!  :002:

Hello Gabrilpa and welcome to the forum! :400:

A friendly bunch and we will do what we can to help you in your decision making!

As Verdun says if you go for it get the dealer to ensure any outstanding recall work is done!

Anything you want to know just ask!

Hi gabrilpa, and  :400:  to the Forum !

At the very top of the "New Members" section is a Post called
"Top Tips for New Forum Members" and within that message there are
links to some of the more useful posts within the forum, such as :

New Owner Checklist,
How to check the most common faults & issues,
List of Recalls and Service Bulletins,
.... plus lots more  :028:

The most important thing for tomorrow though, is not to just go and "look" at a Trophy,
but to take one out for a Test Ride - When you get back you WILL want to buy one,
so be prepared to open your wallet !   :169:

Cheers  :821:

Welcome. See if you can get a test ride. If you do you better bring some Euros along.
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.
