Hello from Rik in the South of France
« on: September 29, 2015, 08:31:15 am »
 :821:
Hello everyone.
The Trophy SE is my fourth Hinkley Triumph.
Still UK registered, but this will have to change as I have moved to France.
I must say the cruise control was a real help on the ride down.

OK, a little about me.
I am 57 years young, married to Nicola.
We have 5 children between us, me 3 girls, Nicola one of each.
One grandson, and one on the way (November).

We have moved to France to get some better weather and a better life style.
I am learning French by using it!

Rik.

Welcome to the Forum. :400:  I'm sure you will love it in France. I lived in France for 5 years and most days I wish I had never moved back to the States.
