    Hello from Amelia Island, Florida

     I'm the proud new owner of a 14 TTSE in silver.  It has 690 miles on it!  I also have a TEX 1200 so I'm familiar with the engine, and I love it!  I'll be going out west this summer so thought I'd try out a Trophy and see which one I like better for touring and sell the other one.  I like the site and looking forward to absorbing some info and others' experiences here.  Are the R&G bars the only way to get some kind of highway pegs?  Thanks!

    Welcome.
    Here in beautiful Wayne County, Ohio the large fairing on the TTSE is only a negative on those rare hot days where the T exceeds 85. With Florida temperatures it could be a negative on hot days.

    It's a great touring machine and really fun on tight curves on twisty roads. I can't predict which you will prefer but I'm sure you'll like the TTSE.

    Congrats on the acquisition and enjoy!

    Hi Davisman. I too am a Trophy Junior and so far loving it. I took my brand new machine for her first 500mile service yesterday and enjoyed a very long and twisty ride home being allowed to take her to over 60mph  :152:
