    Hi from Trophy newbie

    After a few years on a Tiger 800 (favourite bike so far) I was encouraged by the other half to change for greater comfort. She had suffered numb bum on way home from Isle of Man for Southern 100. First impressions are good although she fell asleep on our first proper ride out last weekend! Perhaps it's too comfie ?  :821:

    Welcome from Europe :745:

    I figure the Throphy is one of the best bikes to fall asleep on. My wife used to do do this on the old 1150GS.

    Welcome aboard  :821: if your better half falls asleep on the Trophy it's because:
    1) she's total confidence in your driving talents
    2) the Trophy is one of the most comfortable bikes, if not THE most comfortable one, and as Kevin put it: especially for pillions!  :047:
