    Another Newbie Topic

    Instead of starting another newbie thread, I thought I'd recycle this one.
    Waiting to pick up my Trophy this Friday.. Trading in my 2012 Explorer and my cherished 2010 Sprint ST 1050, I reckon the Trophy will easily replace the both of  them. Also have a Storm, as some of my mates own Harleys and the Storm fits better when riding to the tea bar with them. lol
    The long haired gruppenfuhrer has decreed that my bike collection was overdue a cull, ( I also have a 1979 250N Superdream,) so very happy to oblige.
    Chose the TT standard and having read this thread am happy that I won't miss the extra bells and whistles of the SE, I use ACS moulded ear pieces for music and have Bluetooth in the hat so that takes care of the radio issue, electric suspension. hmmmm might have been nice, but wtf, I'll get by.
    It's the blue one, as obviously they are the fastest, and the dealer has added, heated grips, seats, top box and sat nav, so I reckon that'll do.
    Booked in for 500 mile service on the Monday, as Friday after collection it's off to the RTTW, so if you see someone on a new shiny T, with a grin that doesn't fit inside the helmet...that's me !

    I picked up my bike on a Thursday morning and had the 500 mile service done that Saturday as soon as they opened at 0900.  :001: It was too easy to put the miles on it, harder to maintain the breaking guidelines.

    How much were you charged for the 500 mile service?  Other than changing the oil and filter, did they take off the fairing and check all nuts and bolts for proper tightness?
