    New owner from South Africa

    Hi Guys & Gals, my name is Steve and I am a member of the WSSA (Widows Sons of South Africa) I got my 2014 Trophy SE last Friday,  :046: bit of a rush decision but I was so angry that my VN1700 could not keep up with the rest of the bikes on a 400 km ride from Bloemfontein Sunday 25th back home to Randburg where I live. (couldn't handle the wind at 140 KMH and just would not GO!)
    I always wanted a Triumph but was always caught up in the Cruiser bunch as I did a lot of custom work on my own and for others. Anyway I LOVE my Trophy, what a bike, one thing I did today however was to purchase 2 Explorer mirrors ($197) and fit them as I nearly rear ended a car Saturday looking down at the factory mirrors :005: I can tell you this bike is now beyond perfect and its a dream to ride, in fact my wife has made a sticker for it and called it the "Silver Dream Machine"! She rides her own V-Strom 1000 but I see the envy at the moment (may be another Trophy on the way!)
    Anyway greetings from Sunny SA and I look forward to chatting to you all as we enjoy the best bike ever made for touring :152:
