    whilst me self ... well ... am a nuts an bolts fella

    Yep - Got that  :028:   :745:

    Plenty of info in here - probably everything you would want to know !

    Just have a "play" with the SEARCH Button ( up there on the Menu Bar top left ),
    then if there's something specific you can't find, post a New Topic in a relevant Section  :169:

    In the meantime, you could do worse than starting with this Message :
    TOP TIPS for New Forum Members !
    and trawling through some of the Links in there  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    17k miles on a new 2014. Brake disc warped and tyre pressure batteries only warranty claims in 2 years. Very happy. Pillion loves leg room, seat height. Some helmet buffeting.

    For pillion no issues as said perhaps a bit of buffeting but she did not even notice.  I held the intercom open and adjusted the screen until I heard the noise decrease and then she said OH that noise???  Loads of luggage space (well for her not me of course as it all seemed full suddenly).  I got the internal bags so it was easy to just take the bags out at hotels. 

    As for nuts and bolts mine is a launch model with about 30K miles and I have had a clutch problem (fixed by Triumph) all the recalls done (should not be applicable to later models) and fitted a LiFePo battery (just recently but am very impressed with cranking speed).

    Most people go for a test drive and get the cheque book out and some have been 'bullied' into buying by the pillion experience.

    As said lots on this forum (another reason to buy a Trophy is the information and people on this forum)

    2014 that just ticked over 40,000 miles. I had to find some mini floorboards for my pillion (wife) and I use an Airhawk cushion on my seat. Other than that, no issues here.
