    Hi
    Just ordered my new trophy after 3 years racking up miles on a 2013 zzr1400.
    Really impressed with the test ride. I was expecting to find it a bit gutless after the zzr but it really impressed... Roll on the next 10days til delivery... :)
    VFR750 (fantastic bike), Z650, ZX9r (late night shopping on ebay!), VFR1200 (never again), ZZR1400 (hang on tight!), Trophy SE (I'm getting older, this is comfy :)  )

    Hello there and welcome! :400:

    Like you I came from something with much more power, a BMW K1200S. It really isn't a problem though The power delivery and transmission are so good you don't notice it!

    Last time I was in Abingdon was September 1988... I remember it very well as I was at RAF Abingdon when the Phantom from 228 OCU squadron crashed practising for its display at the Airshow... I was starting with 228 OCU just a few weeks later...
