Future/New Trophy owner

How do Chaps and Chapasses

Let me tell you a story

So being an owner of a fantastic Triumph Explorer, today was it's day for the 20k service along with the addition of a few bits and pieces under warranty @ Staffordshire Triumph. The request was made to use the demo Trophy just to see what it's like as I don't/didn't  :008: get on with the seat which I had to un-numb my ass every 100 miles.
From Staffs Triumph I decided and a trip down to the National Memorial Arboretum with the good lady wife/bank manager riding pillion.
We were astounded, so much so I was grinning from ear to ear and the boss saying how comfy it is on the back.
Now this demo is fully loaded with every farkle you could shake a stick at. We arrived back at Staffs Triumph and stated how impressed I was with it "did you know it's for sale" OMG I was interested but go on, how much? Well you give us your TEx and £3k and it's yours. Show me that dotted line, wife get ya purse out.....

& that ladies and gentlemen is why I have just registered on this site where hopefully I will get some good ideas from you guys

Cheers Keith (ska-Oggy)

I may too get one in 2015, still the last on my list I haven' taken around the block - but as I sit here just walking again in the last few weeks; closed my pool today - and my Achilles tendon is throbbing, let me pass on a little TT experience and advice.

When using the center-stand, maybe put your foot in the peg so it is under your heel, and downward pressure is directed straight down through the lenght of the leg bones. I'm just saying!  I know what can happen if you put your foot on it closer to the toes and leverage your foot!  Something just might give...

...and tht my friend is why I must wait.

Enjoy

Now: the Black would be cool if there was also a kill switch for all the lights, and night vision goggles on the helmet!  Works when flying helicopters!  Now you see me, now you don't!
Don't pick a fight with an old guy, because if he can't fight - he'll just kill you!
