New Trophy Rider in BC Canada
« on: November 26, 2015, 12:51:55 am »
Hello All,

Just found the site after I got home from Dealer and put my deposit down.. Will be signing paperwork Friday and I'll be on my first ride...

About me, 20+ years on bikes, I've ridden Japanese / German / Italian / Austrian (current)... I love to ride.... I caught the Iron Butt Bug 2 years ago, and put on 24,000km on my RT in under 4 months when I started - I was hooked, but the big Bimmer was a bit on the boring side - I felt like I rode across the country the two times by Civic,, it was plush and easy but I decided a Big Adv bike was needed in the stable... picked up an 1190R - and sold the BMW.... well I fell in love with the big Kato and will be keeping it for my multi Province/State dirt riding,, but since the fall hit I've been feeling I was missing something without a cross continental filly in the garage...

Embarrassed to say after only maybe a month of research - and finding zero decent ST1300s / and not willing to pull the plug on the FJR (it just doesn't do anything for me), and the new RT was too expensive - I ran across a new past model Trophy loaded + some and after only a few days of research and drooling I knew it was for me - love the look, the appointments - just the whole feel of it...  :034: I didn't even fire her up yet and I'm almost done pulling the trigger...

With a few years under my belt on 2 wheels,, I just knew this was the one and the deal was unheard of.... so I am trusting the folks around hear will lay to rest I made the right choice....

Well now I have to wait for Friday... already have two monster IB Challenges planned for '16 !!!

Cheers brbo.

You won't be sorry.  The Trophy is a mighty fine machine.  It does everything well and it sounds like you are getting a great deal.

Hi brbo and :400: to the Club !

There can't be that many Trophy owners that bought one without riding it first ...

You are going to be seriously impressed tomorrow !   :152:

Cheers  :821:

Perhaps that should be a poll. I did NOT test ride mine before signing the papers.

But  terms such as  "most people"  usually does mean that I am left out.  :008:

Oh, I almost 4-got,  :401: to brbo.
