Hello from Warrington UK
« on: December 01, 2014, 07:58:53 pm »
Just picked up my 14 TTSE with 3,000 only on the clock for £10,700 which I thought was a pretty good deal  :002: Also came with Zumo 660 mount installed but no top box

Embarassingly it fell over  (foot in pothole) on my test drive and badly scratched screen which is being replaced - OH I DID FEEL A FOOL. But I just traded in my Sprint ST and this is one HEAVY bike in comparison. Strange that my feet seem higher than on the ST even though the seat height specs are similar  :112:

(Dealer said "you aren't the first and you wont be the last"  :047: :047:

With the benefit of my test drive experience spent all Sunday installing R&G Adventure Bars (long job to fit)
 and figuring out how to pair my Midland headset.

Jobs to do:-

1) Fit a Givi universal adapter and monokey box (dont want to leave panniers on for day to day)
2) Try the Tune ECU bluetooth version with the ELM327 connector
3) Maybe think about an R&G exhaust protector in case it falls the other eay next time!!

Welcome to the forum.  I came from a Sprint GT but now prefer the size of the TT in comparison.  I can certainly ride it quicker than the Sprint. Just hope you managed to get the faster blue one.  :008:

Welcome to the Forum :400: I have a Sprint ST as well and you're right the Trophy is heavier. 180 pounds heavier.

Welcome to the forum!  The weight takes a little getting used to, but you will in short time.  Enjoy!

Welcome paulbaker, and I wish you many happy miles and years of enjoyment. I was also supposed to trade my Sprint ST in for the Trophy, but changed my mind at the last minute - much to my wife's disgust. The added weight and bulk certainly takes some getting used to - not least, I now only stop in an absolutely vertical straight line (especially on diesel covered forecourts). But the comfort and lack of a chain to clean makes up for any additional weight.
