    Leeds Trophy Newbie

    Hi everyone,

    Thought I would jump in and say a big hello to you all!

    I live in Leeds, West Yorkshire and today have just purchased a '13 model Trophy! My first.

    I have been riding since 1998, and my bike history is

    Aprilia Leonardo
    Suzuki GSX705F
    BMW R1100S
    BMW R1150 GS Adv
    Triumph Tiger Explorer

    I like to think that my bike history has got better with age! And today, with the Trophy, maybe the best yet! It is replacing the Tiger that got written off due to the Boxing Day floods in Leeds.

    Am already planning my european trip for this summer....Slovenia, the Dolomites and Berchetsgarden beckon.....

    AM looking to get a Sat Nav. I have a Zumo 500 but would love it anyone knows how I can RAM mount this.

    Cheers gents, am a bit giddy, can't stop reading about how blinkin' good the bike is. :047:

    We lost a car and two motorbikes in the flood. I was looking at a Multistrada and even a Super Tenere, but I had been eyeing up a Trophy for about a year now. Maybe it's fate...

    Welcome to the forum.
    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.

    Hi rugbug and :400: to the Club !

    As well as searching through the numerous Topics on Sat Nav mounting,
    check out the "How To'sTechnical Guides" Section where you will find a Topic on Removing the Fairing......
    and another on Fitting the Triumph Sat Nav Mount and Zumo 660  :028:

    Cheers  :821:
