Hello from hot, sweaty Florida.
« on: April 15, 2013, 01:56:56 PM »
Hello all,

I'm currently riding an '11 Tiger 800XC.  It's a good bike, but I long for something more comfortable and better handling.  I recently test rode a new Trophy and was amazed at how well the bike fit me.  Everything about the bike impressed me.  I really want to sell my Tiger and get the Trophy, but finances aren't always easy to deal with.  Maybe in a year, maybe sooner, I don't know.  I will have a Trophy.

Also you are on the right site.  I am sure you will get your arm twisted? 

I am sure the weather is very conducive to having a nice Trophy in Florida.  Might need a cooled seat though rather than heated.

I used to work for a company in fort Lauderdale and the first time I went I could not beleive that if you kept the windows of the car closed or you cooked!  It was a long time ago and of course in the UK there were not many airconditioned cars so was quite a novelty.

Hello and welcome Crazyman. I also suspect you are on the road to Trophy ownership.

Hi Crazyman  :401:

The Trophy is a great bike, but so is the Tiger. They'll still be around when your ready  :062:  :821:

Cheers everyone for the welcome replies.
I'm finding the only really difficult thing is the waiting.  My next bike will be a Trophy.  It's just a question of when.

Crazyman, yes they are not cheap but, like you I haven't got the Trophy yet, I have book a test ride for when I get back to the UK, the end of April and I can't wait.
Hope it is not too long before you get what seems to be the greatest tourer on the market, I haven't read a bad comment about it,  and this is the site to get to know everything there is, I have only just joined and was amazed at the replies I got to my post. We all need help and advise at times and this is the pace to give and receive.
Fave fun and take care.
Dave

I'm going to the Triumph shop tomorrow and come home on a new Trophy SE.  That's the plan anyway  :125:
