The first 1000 miles
« on: May 27, 2013, 12:37:06 PM »
I've had my Trophy SE for one week. I've ridden for three and a half days in that week. When I got home from riding last evening I had 1122 miles on the clock.

I've had the first service done. Break in riding is over with, so I had a chance to ride at my normal. WOW, this bike has a lot of power across the power band. 

I am adapting to the upright riding position. I did feel it in my lower back. That's just something I have to train myself to adjust to. Other than that, this bike fits me very very well.

The more I ride this bike, the more I love it !

Airhawk seat / cushion.  It has a number of air pockets that you can inflate / deflate to suit your comfort.  Expensive, but worth it.

It's interesting you mention the upright position. I've been riding a 955ST for years and am quite used to riding leaning forward.  When I ride the Trophy I, of course, sit upright and after a relatively short time my back and legs begin to hurt a bit.  Yet intuitively one would think that riding upright would be more comfortable.  I thought I was the only one whose back hurt. Has anyone else had this experience?

I put a thread up about it previously. In essence, I get back ache intermittently. Something I never had on the CB1300.

I think the strain comes from not leaning forward a little.  I had similar issues when I rode cruisers.  I just have to condition myself to lean forward a bit and keep my back straight.
