Hello from southern California
« on: August 31, 2015, 01:28:44 am »
Greetings to the forum. I just bought a 2013 silver Trophy SE a few weeks ago. It came with a Corbin saddle plus the stock heated seats, and a top case. It also has liners for the panniers. The Corbin was covered in their "carbon fiber" material, and I wear overpants when I ride, so I was sliding around like the puck on an air hockey table. I have sent the saddle back to Corbin to be recovered in something more grippy.

The bike is apart right now so I could replace the GPS mount. There was some kind of Zumo mount already on the bike but it only had two pins on the connector and was wrong for my new Zumo 660, so I am installing the mount that came with my 660.

I live in Long Beach and work at Jet Propulsion Lab, the place that sends the rovers to Mars. I have been riding a long time but sold my last bike in 2007 when I started at JPL. This bike is not being used for commuting to work, just weekend riding right now. I hope to do some long rides in the not-too-distant future.

I like the trophy. It fits me well and I think I'll be pretty happy with it. My last bike was a naked, so I am really enjoying having a fairing and windshield.

This forum seems great and I have already gotten some help from it in the way of instructions on removing the panels and changing out the GPS mount. Cheers!

-Dave
