Probably biased but I think that is a really fair and honest write up!

I would also say it is a pretty fair evaluation. I don't understand the comment about the seat height though... My Trophy is noticeably lower than my RT was. Also, if he thinks the Trophy's speedo numbers are small, check out a K1600...

 A very reasonable review. Switchgear will come up again and again on test rides but after a few weeks is second nature. Can change from comfort to normal tes without looking down by now. Agree about the seat height I notice a significant difference hopping between my st1100 pan and the triumph but I have 31 inch leg size and it has never been a real problem and way better than my gs adventure which was one of the key reasons to swap. The article focussed on the riding dynamic which is the key distinctive feature of the trophy. The engine and control inputs are significantly more responsive than my pan which make for a more engaging, 2015 state of the art touring motorcycle ride.

Pretty fair except for the seat comment, perhaps he has thicker thighs than I do  :082:

I had a wander through a BMW dealership a couple of days ago while the wife's car was in for service across the road. The casual wander turned into an outright sprint between rows of K16's to avoid the four salesmen who were bearing down on me at a great rate of knots  :179:

It's a good review, probably the most accurate I've read for the Trophy.

I like the last line,  he traded in his VFR for the TTSE !

Well he doesn't seem to be being paid by BMW like a lot of other reports we have read.  Biased I know but good report.
