    New member here from Pennsylvania.  I pick up a NEW (left over) Blue 2015 TTSE in about two weeks.  I am having heated grips/seats and Top box ordered and installed prior to pick up.

    Last bike, which I sold about 5 years ago, was a Triumph Sprint ST.  That bike was also blue...hmm - guess I like blue.  My wife put me up to buying the bike as she loves to ride.  So now that I am getting up in years and only about 8 years out from retirement I figured might as well step up into the TOURING category.  I was looking at the BMW 1600GTL but just could not see spending the extra $ as the Trophy seems like a great bike with many of the same features.

    Need to do some research on GPS and integrated mounting and communications systems for the pillion and I.  Will probably be stepping up my gear also as I would like to get some 4 season gear for the wife and I.

    Well let the spending begin!

    Looking forward to many safe and enjoyable rides!

     :400: Papaduke, maple farkles has a simple  but good GPS mount.   We use the Sena 10s for communication, works well,  but probably a better version out there by now.   Enjoy the Trophy

    Hi Papaduke and :400: to the Club !

    Triumph have a purpose designed mounting bracket that sits at the bottom of the Wind Screen.

    You can see it on the Triumph Web Site and order it from any authorised Triumph Dealer.

    It's designed to hold the cradle for the Garmin Zumo 660LM,
    but many of our Members have fitted other Models such as the Garmin 590LM -
    there's plenty of information in here about that, but for fitting the main bracket see here :
    HOW TO: Fitting Triumph Sat Nav Mount & Zumo 660

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks all! 

    Coconut, thanks for the info.   I recently found the triumph bracket you suggested.  Will be ordering one for sure.  May want to do the install myself so will dig into the thread you attached.
