    Returning from an organised tour through France down over the Pyrenees to the Costa Brava. Last day we went to the Pegasus bridge in Caen before catching the ferry home, just about to  order lunch when surprise another TT arrived in the car park, a highly unusual sight as I have only seen two on all my continental travels.
    super chap and his wife from Le Mans on a non SE model in the beautiful and faster Lunar Silver ( Same as mine).
    Nice end to a wonderful tour.

    It would be nice to seridiptiously meet up with  another Trophy owner but unfortunately in 20000 on the bike I have yet to see another Trophy at rest.

    At rest meaning I've seen a trophy or two on the road but never had occasion to see one parked so that I could talk with the rider

    I was recently on a trip out in Colorado and made a stop and another rider pulled up beside me and said who in their right mind would buy a Triumph, I looked over and he was driving a Triumph , but not a Trophy.  After chatting it turned out he was a police officer from Ontario Canada !

    Spending a few well earned days on the South Coast with Family,
    on the way down I spotted a blue Trophy on the M40 ( Northbound ),
    and then a lovely Silver one on the road near Hastings yesterday,
    plus a BRG Trophy 3 parked up at the same Holiday Park - Camber Sands  :028:

    Well on my outings to date I haven't seen another Trophy either moving or at rest. But from your posts it appears more and more are being spotted in the wild. Maybe time to review it's endangered status. I would love to know how many Triumph are selling each year both in total and country by country. 
    Life isn't a dress rehearsal so enjoy it.
