    Hello,

    Just joined, looking at buying a second bike, for Blood Delivery biking when not using a marked bike. Looking at an RT, K1600 or my current favourite the Trophy. Haven't test rode either yet, although a mate of mine test rode a Trophy yesterday, he currently owns a new RT, bet you can't guess which he liked best, yup his RT.

    My current bike is  Harley CVO Road King, haven't owned a Triumph since 1978. Clue there to my age :-) Been lurking on the forum for a while, enjoying reading about the Trophy.

    I test rode the TT and RT back to back. Preferred and bought the TT  :169: The RT felt a bit vague on the front where the TT was planted. With longer service intervals and cheaper spare parts and avoiding the BMW dealers who always tell you that you need more work  doing (Revenue generation) that was my choice.
    It wasn't me !!

    Hi casbar,   :400:  saw a posting somewhere, possibly on this forum of a `TT'  all signed and marked up as a `Blood' courier bike,  looked really good  ( maybe based in Sussex ? ). 
    Enjoy the forum.... :821:

    Hi casbar and :400: to the Forum !

    Your mate is only saying he likes his RT best,
    because after the Trophy Test Ride he's realised
    he could have got a better bike for a lot less money
    and has to justify his mistake to himself   :745:

    Cheers  :821:
