    afternoon folks, im new, ive just registered,im seriously considering trading up to the big lass, ive currently got a 2004 pan with approx 45000 ( proud to say ,mostly mine and mostly done twos up in this country and europe over the last six years or so.
    honestly, in that time the honda has never once let me down, so changing is giving me a proper head "flip",,,,,,
    any thoughts? or advice greaty welcome, im approx 6' 1" so the size of the new girl shoudnt be an issue,
    really liking the look of the black one, although the blue is also "smarrrrt" !!!!!!

    welcome aboard  :821: as you have probably read hundreds of times: book a test ride and you should be convinced the Trophy will be right for you!
    ps: when so doing, do  not forget your wallet, you might be hooked!

    I had a 1300 pan for 8 years and changed to a trophy 2 years ago. The trophy is a better more comfortable bike for 2 up touring. It handles better and is more economical.  On the pan I had a flip screen and specially made gel seats but the trophy is more comfortable than I ever got the pan to be. I am about 6ft 2in and bought the touring screen which works well for me, I also got the comfort seats now four to five hundred miles is no problem.

    Hi Dave, welcome to the forum,  :400:   I rode a `pan' for  a couple of years,  as already mentioned the Trophy is far more comfortable and is better suited for touring.   Don't `Ponder' to long  - go for it,  if going for a `test ride',  take you wallet..... :821:
