What a great motorcycle!
« on: May 31, 2013, 04:27:37 pm »
Folks I have been riding for 42 years, I've owned 20 motorcycles, 14 in the last 12 years. In another post someone used the word "amazing" to describe the Trophy, I can not disagree. I am so impressed with the bike, how can a company hit a home-run with a first year model?

The only complaints I have are speaker quality/peak volume and the seat. I am having my seat reworked next month and am investigating speaker and amp. options.

Tuesday is the initial service, can't wait to twist that throttle wide open.

Ride safely people!

Agreed! Wish you (GPL95928) and all other Forum Members long and Happy Riding with this Beauty.
Like anyone else I've a few things I wish Triumph would have made different, but still it's the best bike I've been riding for many, many years (started in1972)! :152: :046: :047: :821:

I too been riding a myriad of bikes throughout the years, and the Trophy is out of this world. These guys really did their homework on the design.

I am really really hoping this models catches on as a LE solo bike. Then you will see even more energy and aftermarket engineers trying to get in the profits. Should this ever happen, you will see in the LE models even better cooling system/fans, tougher electronic wiring with more battery power, great engine guards, assorted lightings options. At this point, I am hoping they are willing to sell the LE model to the general public minus the blue lights.

I personally think its is a more pragmatic cycle than the BMW for LE work.
