    New Owner Oxfordshire UK

    Thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself. Joined the forum a few weeks back after the temptation of a 'new' Trophy reached a critical level and likely purchase became imminent! Did quite a bit of reading up and learned a lot about what to look for.

    The really good news is that I've now bought a Trophy SE (secondhand but in good, well cared for condition) and I'm delighted with it!

    In addition to the SE, the current two-wheel fleet includes a 1998 Laverda 750S Formula, 1995 Triumph Trophy 900 and a 2003 Triumph Trophy 1200. Add to that a 1998 air-cooled Ducati Supersport 900 that I've owned from new but is currently off the road enjoying a very steady (slow!) refurb.

    The SE is like nothing I've ridden before but then again, I haven't ridden anything anywhere near as 'modern', so I'm doing some 're-learning' at the moment. But so far so good! Am ignoring most of the toys for now and just concentrating on getting to know the machine as a machine.

    I'll be reading the 'Top Tips for Forum Newbies' and am looking forward to participating in the sharing of knowledge, making ownership that much more empowered!

    Happy riding folks!  :152:

    Hi Zirynx and :400: to the Club !

    That's a nice addition to your collection -
    I don't think those other Trophy's
    ( impressive though they are in their own right )
    will get ridden too often now though !

    Cheers  :821:

    Welcome. Keep us posted as you get to know the beast!
    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.
