Triumph Trophy demo ride
« on: December 11, 2015, 11:00:36 pm »
My wife and I travelled from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, to Jack Lilley's Triumph Dealership Ashford in Middlesex, London to test ride a Trophy today "friday", I have brought three bikes from them in the past, I lived down there until 12 months ago, and always got first class service.
 
I took the bike out on my own as I've never ridden one before, just to get use to the handling, then back to the showroom where they set the bike up for "two" up, I have to say it was the SE model, I was told by others on here that I would not find fault with it, and I have to say i can't.

So the end of this little post is................My wife wants one in Black, she game me the thumbs up, so, after Christmas we may just buy one  :001: :153:

Good for you.   :028: the test ride does seem to be the clincher for most people.

Hi there Wilko and welcome! :400:

Glad your experience with the test ride was as positive as it was for all of us.... It truly is a great bike.... This bike is just going to go from strength to strength and I can see it being a true challenge to the others out there... as more of us ride it and get the message out to others the numbers are going to go up... we might lose some exclusivity, but thats not a problem..

Welcome Wilko!
Taking the wife on a test ride. Very good strategy!! Smart man!
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
