What are the odds?
« on: July 05, 2015, 11:42:18 pm »
It was too cool to be tooling along hwy. 36 in Missouri on July 2nd, only to see a familiar front end come up from behind and pass me slowly.
Are you ready?
It was a blue Trophy! How cool is that?!

A shout out to the California plate from the Kansas silver plate.
Hope you'r a member here!

That would be cool. The only other times I've seen one in my area is at the dealerships. Seen a few Thunderbird Storms, Commanders, a Bonneville and a couple of Speed Triples though.

Yeah but it's sad that seeing another Trophy is newsworthy. We gotta get more of them out there!

Well there are two ways we can do that......

Firstly... Totally evangelise the Trophy every time we talk to anyone.... That's not a problem, I do that all the time!

The second is trade our Trophies in every year for a new one so we flood the market with used ones and build up the membership base that way!

That must've been what the PO of mine did.  :047:  I've been very interested in the TTSE ever since it came out, but never felt "ready" to get back into a full-on touring bike... until my '14 showed up and it was just a deal too good to pass up.

This is one time where I didn't mind blowing my wad (of cash) early.  :007:

MY local dealer only sells a few a year and that's hard to believe. What's not to like about the trophy it's an amazing motorcycle, it's a little pricey that's the only thing I can think of maybe that takes many buyers out of the market
