Hi all!  I ride a '13 SE which I own since Nov. -13.  I recently sold my Rocket 3 that was getting a little heavy for me.  I've been riding for most of my life (long).  Started with Puch 125, then Puch 250, then BSA Gold Star, then having kids (no riding for a few years.  Then Honda CB450, CB750 for a long time.  From there to Triumph Rocket III Classic and now the Trophy SE.  That's it!    NOTE: Do not drink and ride!  Not even a little.

Welcome to the forum Austrian.  Honda CB450 and 750 were both very memorable bikes.  I rode a CB750 - one of my favorites - for a few years back in the early 70s, when I was in my 20s.  But, as far as riding comfort, now that I'm in the mid 60s, my 2014 TTSE wins hands down.    :152:

Thanks,  you got that right as far as comfort is concerned.  Handling and reliability as well.  I suspect the reason for not having any children earlier was the vibration of the BSA Gold start.  It's amazing what a 500cc single can do to the family jewels!  Scrambled eggs anyone?  :)

 :400: to the forum.  Had an unfulfilled love affair with a Gold Star that a friendly dirt tracker had and built into a beast that I couldn't even turn over with the kick starter as a skinny small teenager.  The guy was about 6' 2" and 200 lbs and could ride it like a maniac.  Good thing I couldn't own it, I may not be here right now.  :745:
