Ride Magazine need your views chaps
« on: January 07, 2016, 01:47:10 pm »
Ladies and gentlemen, hello  - and Happy New Year! - from RiDE Magazine.
Please excuse the impersonal group email, but it's the easiest way of getting the message out.

And the message is.... please help!
I'm emailing you because you're on our books as being a current or former owner of a Triumph Trophy 1200 and I'm hoping you can help us out with a big feature on this model for a forthcoming issue. It's a detailed buying guide - good points and bad points, running costs etc. Basically what it's like to live with one on a daily basis.

Which is where you, the owners, come in, because you know these bikes better than anyone else.

So I'd like to invite you to tell me all about it. Ideally I can send you a questionnaire to fill in (just reply to this email and I'll send it back by return), but otherwise please feel free to just waffle on in as much detail as you like about what it is/was like to live with your Trophy - running costs, problems, likes, dislikes, how many miles you covered, favourite tyres, servicing etc - every scrap of detail helps to make up the big picture.

Speaking of pictures, please feel free to send a few (.jpg format is best), along with some background info if applicable - we love to see your photos. If you could include the exact model/year of the bike and the current mileage, that would help a lot. A bit of background on yourself - age, occupation etc - and your riding experience is always interesting too.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Any questions, fire away.

Cheers,

Kev Raymond
Features Writer

PS: Please feel free to forward this on to any other owners you know, and/or to post it on forums etc if you think it'll help ­ - the more responses we get, the more accurate and representative the final feature will be. We've got surprisingly few Trophy owners on the database so the more you can spread the word to other owners, the better! Thank you.

Thanks Glen.... I think I will drop him an e-mail and offer my sage council and some pics! Depending on how imminent the article is will hopefully have some great ones with the Vulcan to show him!

No problem Kevin, hopefully the more who write in, the more praises we can bestow our great machines!

I have dropped him a line and asked for a questionnaire. I have also mentioned we are having a meet at the Vulcan on the 27th of Feb if he wanted to come along and talk face to face to a group of owners.... not to mention get a chance for some great photos!
