Hello from a new member
« on: July 27, 2015, 12:03:04 pm »
 Hello every one I have just took  delivery of my Trophy after a false start due to a coolant leak? [radiator cap not on properly apparently]
on my previous bike a Honda ST 1100 I toured most of central Europe with my wife as pillion and hope to do the same with the Trophy.
regards
Digby.

Welcome to the group!
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Welcome!  I did a tour of Western France with the wife where the Trophy behaved pretty well.  I also came from an ST1100 which I initially missed, but now find it hard to remember the old beast..

welcome aboard  :821: I, too, came from a ST 1100 and must confess the Trophy gives me more pleasure than my beloved Pan

Hi Digby and welcome to the gang!

You will find the Trophy a real mile muncher that will happily take you and your pillion everywhere you want to go!

Welcome to the forum. While a V4 has its charms, so does a triple!  :821:

Coolant Leak: Yep, some numbnut on the production line left a TON of these bikes with a partially torqued hose clamp at the exit of the radiator back into the motor....a real PITA to get to once the bike is finally assembled :138:. Needs about three more twists to tighten it down and no more problems!!  :028: Mine now has nearly 10 K miles on it and the bike is FLAWLESS!!  :821: Enjoy it! -Dr Ron
