    just started thinking about a replacement (or compliment) for my 09 Bonnie.  Always liked the look of the Trophy SE...with that said, I'll look forward to future conversation.

    Welcome to the forum, dolph!  You'll find almost everything you need to know about the Trophy right here; use the 'Search' feature liberally.  There a few issues with some of the bikes, as you will read, but by and large a whole lot of very happy owners.  A very helpful group as well!  Hopefully your local Triumph dealer will allow you a test ride.  Have your checkbook in hand; you won't likely leave the dealer without being an owner!

    Hi Dolph, welcome aboard  :821:, I guess the Trophy is more to be seen as a complement to the Bonnie than as a replacement

    An old biker must be a good rider

    Welcome Dolph,
    What up?
    I for one can confirm that my '11 Bonneville makes a wonderful complement to the TTSE.
    I have had minor issues with my TTSE and I'm a happy owner.
    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.
