Newbie here
« on: October 08, 2014, 10:51:36 am »
Hi all , was browsing the forum and was impressed by the knowledge,friendliness  and advice on here so signed up.
I have just purchased a bike after almost 20 years away from the saddle(you know how it is , real life issues force you to take a break from riding and the years fly by.)
I have bought a 1999 Trophy 900

It is currently SORN ,as there are a few minor jobs that need doing and i intend using the winter period to get everything sorted so that i can get it in tip top shape and experience the thrill of two wheeled travel once again next year.

I am a bit of a technical dunce(my best mate used to do all my maintenance but he is no longer around) so hope to avail myself of the useful advice on here.

I live in Norfolk (Dereham) and hope to meet up with fellow Triumph lovers in the future.

Booder.

Hey up Booder

 :401: to the board but I believe this is mainly for owners of the new version of the Trophy, the 1215cc one.

Dont quote me but I think there may be another site that will suite you better for the 900c version ( http://triumph-trophy.10955.n7.nabble.com/mailing_list/MailingListOptions.jtp?forum=2 

Anyway whilst your here 1st ones on me  :821: & have fun

Cheers

Hi booder and  :400: to the Forum !

As bigog7470 rightly points out, this Forum is dedicated to the "new" Trophy model ( 2012 onwards ),
although everyone is welcome here,  and discussions on Triumph Models other than the "new" Trophy can

( and should - to avoid any confusion )  be held in this Section :"On Two Wheels - Bikers Chat"

There is also another Forum dedicated to the previous Trophy Model,
that you might find interesting here : Triumph Trophy 3 & 4 forum  :028:
