    Hello from San Diego!!

    Hi all,

    A true pleasure to be part of the club. My Dad and I have a 2015 Trophy SE, Pacific Blue. My favorite color, it matches my Subaru Outback's Lapis Blue. Coming from my 1100RT, it is one awesome upgrade! Love the heated grips, the power, the seat and pretty much everything about it. Our only gripe with it is coming from the BMWs, the JDM turn signals. But we adapt! Also, the storage platform on the rear we feel is lacking.

    Not sure if this is the right place for the question, but we wanted to ask the Trophy collective, have you ever put any of these Bungee Buddies on the rack? If so where would you recommend mounting them? We want to be able to clip items on and these allow us to do it. We have these on our BMW RT's, but we are not sure where to put them on the Trophy. Here is a link to what they are in case anyone is curious http://www.twistedthrottle.com/bungie-buddies.

    Thank you again.

    Hello f4rat and welcome... personally if I can't get my luggage in the top box and panniers and need to strap anything down I just use the pillion handles as tie down points. :400:

    Hi f4rat and :400: to the Club !

    If you're riding solo there are some useful short canvas type loop straps
    underneath the rear seat that can be used as tie down points
    for something attached to the pillion seat  :028:

    Welcome to the group.

    Never used the bungee buddies.  Good luck with the project and let us know how it works!
    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.

    Like the look of those Bunjiee Buddies but never having seen them before have no idea where to mount them.

    Love, light and kindness,

    Thank you everyone for your warm welcomes and thoughts. Hope to hang around this community and learn a lot. I'll let my Dad know what you guys suggested and see if we can figure something out!

    Glad to be a part of this amazing community.
