    Farewell ......

    Hi All  Having had a Trophy SE since 2013 and completed 30000 miles all over England and Europe an Artic lorry decided to take me out at a junction 5 miles from home .HE WON !!!! .Luckily it was the bike which was written off and not me despite being unconscious for several hours ,and a spell in hospital .As a result the Trophy has gone to the great Trophy hall in the sky and I am now bike less and  not intending to go back on two wheels .

    As  such  I have a few New or as new items for the Trophy for sale on this site ,which you may like to look at ( I live in Welwyn Garden city Hertfordshire ).

    I have to say I have been riding m/cycles since for the past 43 years and the Trophy without doubt has given me the most fun and  smiles .
    Take care out there fellow bikers ......

    Loads of miles .....singing out .

    Hi loads of miles,

    I know EXACTLY how you must feel !
    ( except I walked away with no Hospital visit ).

    Glad to hear you were relatively unharmed too  :169:

    Don't be surprised if you get the urge
    to buy another Trophy at some point in the future !

    Stay Safe, Cheers  :821:

    "(A)n Artic lorry decided to take me out..."    :431:

    Ah, the old "lug nut rule"--the vehicle with the most lug nuts usually wins the crash!   :087:

    Sorry to hear your riding days are done, but glad you're still in one piece, and able to tell us about it.         :169:

    Enjoy your quest for your next hobby/addiction/past time.         :186:

    Sorry to hear about your crash but glad you have survived relatively unscathed... I can certainly understand the feeling of enough enough for biking!

    I hope the urge comes back for you... but whatever, good to still have you here

    Sorry for the loss of your Trophy and grateful you came through it alright.  Hate to hear your hanging up your gloves, but I certainly understand.  Best of luck in all you do.

    Really sorry to hear about your accident, hopefully you are on the mend and well on the way to a full recovery.  Its always upsetting to hear that a fellow rider has been involved in a serious accident and reminds us all of the dangers bike riders face.

    Best wishes to you and your family.

    A sad way to end your motorcycling days, but never say never.

    Hope to have you back on a Trophy one day.

    Love, light and kindness,
