Thinking about the Trophy for my next bike. Thought I would join and get some detailed inside scoop. I thank you all in advance. This is my 1st post ever anywhere not sure how this goes. Last 2 bikes Concours 1994, 2012 V-strom 650a . This Trophy looks like a awesome value. Can I get a quick summary from a owner? Thank you. Biffy.

Welcome Biffy... don't just think about it... test ride one but then be prepared to buy one.... because you will stop thinking at that point and just hand over the money! :008:

Hi Biffy and welcome. The test ride will get you, first you get the smile as you ride. Then the grin as you get off. Then you get your wallet out  :745:

Biffy,

Welcome! 

Look around the forum a bit and you'll find reviews. A few people have had problems but most of us are quite happy with the TTSE. Take your wallet to the test ride.

All the best!
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.

 :400: to the forum.  The Trophy is indeed the "best bang for the buck".  I found it to have almost everything the BMW K1600GTL has, less about 110 lbs and about 5-6K dollars with less maintenance and cheaper parts to boot.  Test ride it - you'll buy it!
