    I think there also needs to be an Option to allow you to Input the "Age you feel" after riding a Trophy...

    Riding mine takes years off me. THE most comfortable bike I've ever ridden.

    At the other end of the scale however is the Speedmaster.
    I had been asked by my Local Dealer to help Run-In a new fleet of Demonstrators before the prospective Customers got to wring their necks and the Speedie needed some careful but testing mileage.
    True, it was the first Cruiser I have ever ridden but after 50 miles I wanted to get off. 66 miles later I was in AGONY.

    Interesting . . . so far, a rather large concentration of us in our 60s.  That suggests the TT(SE) has a greater emphasis on "touring" than on "sport", but I think it is really the best of both.   :152:

    Maybe we are at that age where we forgot that we had already voted, and vote again? Or do the older members have more time to spend on the Forum?

    Much as I like my Trophy I wouldn't agree it is the best of both.  I can make my Triumph Sprint ST out handle and out run my Trophy.  The Trophy is certainly a better touring bike.  Rather than the "best of both"  I would say it was the best bike combining both Sport and Touring features.

    The results so far makes me feel like a youngun.   :001:  No surprise it makes my riding more mature.  Not a bad thing.

    Perhaps we should vote 3 times???  Actual age, normal mind set age and then age we feel when riding Trophy?

    You can't be young forever but you can be immature!!
