Bought my TTSE about a month ago - loving it.  Came from a 2012 Ducati Diavel - I miss the speed/performance but it had a limited range, no storage - therefore, limited use.  Road tested numerous bikes:  k1600, r1200rt, used k1300gt, Connie, FJR, used k1200gt.  Last test ride was the TTSE - bought it.  The k1600 was a killer ride - but felt very large.  Came close to buying a 2014 leftover until the dealer told me to get the extended warranty - upon asking why - he gave me a list of things going wrong in addition to the recalls  - at least he was honest.  Did a little more research and talked to a few owners and the k1600 problems are extensive along with the pricing. 

Happy with the TTSE and have been reading the posts here on the board which has helped quite a bit.

Hi TTE and :400: to the Club !

Congratulations on making the right choice !

There were a few teething problems with some of the first Trophy's,
as you might expect with any new model from any Manufacturer,
but these have been dealt byTriumph in a pro-active manner.

Cheers  :821:

Welcome to the forum, TTE!  You've joined the best forum on the internet!  Now, curious, which Orange County are you in?  California or Florida?  Or maybe there are others I'm not aware of...  Anyways, congrats on the bike, and ride safe!

Hello TTE,

Welcome from Paris.

A decision is always a challenge, I had to do the same, balancing between the K16 and The Lady.

Guess what...
