    Hi all...

    So I have been riding for about 7 yrs now and currently ride a 2010 Suzuki Gladius. I've found that I need a new bike due to the fact that I seem to be doing "trips" all the time..the Gladius is NOT comfortable long distance.  :110:

    Test rode a 2013 Trophy yesterday and decided that a trophy is my new bike!!  :152: I gotta say I was amazed and excited.. amazed at the balance and handling..so smooth .....and excited because I could touch the ground  :046: ..I'm a whopping 5'zero and I gotta say it's a HUGE disadvantage when trying to find a bike that suits my riding style. It seems to me that most dealers look at a short girl and they want to throw you on a cruiser  :157:  So ... I am waiting to hear what Triumph is offering for Octobers' promotion on the 2016 and then I guess I'll decide between blue or black.

    So damn excited  :007: and looking forward to reading about my new bike on this forum

    Welcome aboard  :821:
    The Gladius is a very libvely and pleasant mid size bike, my son has one and I enjoy stealing it from him at times, I agree this is not the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden, by far, even with a customized seat!
    Moving from the Gladius to the Trophy will be a quantum leap! You took the test ride, so you know what I mean...
    Attached is a picture of my son's Gladius next to our Trophy

     :400: to the forum.  The Trophy is by far the most bike for the money in it's category.

    Welcome. Let us know if you make the purchase.
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
