    Hello from Dallas Texas!
    I have a 2014 Tiger 800XC....love the triple motor so, the girlfriend and I went to RPM Cycles sat on a 2013 Trophy...and bought it. It's a fantastic ride.
    I can't understand why Triumph has not put the word out on this motorcycle on how fantastic it is. I hate that they're not making this motorcycle next year. I would see sometime in the near future upgrading to a brand new motorcycle. Try it makes a fantastic motorcycle very reliable. What I would like to know from the community is how people have mounted their GPS and cell phones on the handlebars I'm wondering if there is a RAM mount ball available for the left hand mirror Mount hole on the handle bar itself I don't know what size the bolt needs to be but if anybody has a part number I would surely appreciate it.

    Welcome to the group and to the TTSE family.   :821:

    It is a great bike with a few issues that are easily addressed if they come up.  I would spend some time reading through here as I have learned more than I could have imagined.  I also have a 2013.  I have a Garmin 660 which mounts conveniently to the Triumph mount.  However, if you want to use a RAM system the parts you need to screw into the covered holes are:

     RAM-B-349U RAM M10 X 1.25 Pitch Male Thread 1" Ball   

    I have two of them installed and mount my phone on one, mainly for GoPro control, and a back up GPS on the other side when I am in the middle of nowhere and can't risk a navigation failure.

    Again this is a great site and the search function works well.  If you can't find an answer, do not be afraid to post a question.

    Hope to cross paths on the road.

    Nice to see another local on the boards!  I'm in Allen.  Have only seen one other Trophy pilot at the dealer in Plano.  And he was from Arkansas!  There is one other guy on this forum from Dallas I know of but there should be a couple more lurking about.

    I agree, how can Triumph let a bike as good as this slip away!?!  They did not advertise it at all, it's their own fault.  I hope they come out with a bigger better Trophy to replace it, like merge the Trophy & Rocket platforms.  Could be something to dethrone the Gold Wing!

    Hi there and welcome. Triumph only have themselves to blame for poor sales of the Trophy. They have done so little to advertise such a great bike.  :400:
