    Possible new trophy owner

    Hello all  :821:. I currently ride a first Gen FZ1, and a Harley Dyna. I stopped at my local Triumph/BMW dealership to see the BMW RT1200, that's when I spotted the Trophy. I was able to test ride it twice and love everything about it. This particular dealer has two 2015 leftovers one Blue which I really like,and one Black. I'm looking to buy at the end of April, and this forum has given me a lot of great insight to the Trophy. I don't think I should have any trouble finding one in April, there seems to be a lot of 2015 leftovers, and dealers within 200 miles of me have really discounted the 2016's.

    Hello FZ1Mike and welcome to the forum.  I too owned a gen 1 FZ1 and had an RT.  I can tell you that the Trophy is far and away better than the RT regardless of price and as much fun as the FZ1.  You're going to have a blast with it!

    Thanks Donk, I also rode the BMW the same day, there's no comparison the TTSE seemed like a much nicer ride.

    Welcome FZ1MIke,

    You know it a done deal, you took a test ride!
    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.

    Welcome FZ1MIke,

    I agree, I can't believe the way it handles for a big bike.
