Hello from a future (hopefully) Trophy owner
« on: April 16, 2015, 12:09:55 am »
Hello fellow members. I just joined and am looking forward to reading and learning all I can about the Trophy. I have read several magazine articles and all speak very favorably of this cycle. I currently have a Yamaha Tenere and if I can beg, borrow, or steal (LOL) the $$$, I would love to own the Trophy. Never having ridden one, that is next on my list.....if I can find a dealer who will cooperate. As we all know, that can be difficult. I'm older, retired and I live near Lexington, Ky., USA. Have owned several bikes over the course of a lifetime but never a Triumph.
So, on with my investigation of this site and thanks for having me.

What year Tenere?  I looked at one of those along with several others before I DOWNSIZED to the Trophy from a K1600.  My intent after I got retired was to get lighter, smaller, simpler, less maintenance, and except for the simpler I got it.  I have to say after an R1200RT, K1600 GTL, that I was addicted to creature comforts so that weighed heavily in my decision.  I'm not sure I would get on well with the likes of an adventure type machine now, since I've gotten used to satellite radio (like in the car), bluetooth, electronic suspension, wind and weather protection, etc..  If you go to the Trophy you will find a quiet calm world to ride in that will handle very well and feel lighter than it is in motion. A lot of people here can give you even more information than I.  As an aside, if you decide on the Trophy, by all means get the heated seat and grips (or for around $100 US you can buy the factory individual parts for the grips as a cheaper option and install them yourself as detailed on this forum).  Go take a test ride, then WE WILL WELCOME YOU AS A NEW OWNER, just like most of the rest of us that were sold on the test ride.
