    Greetings all,

    Currently have 3 bikes: a 2006 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic I've had for 11 years, a 2000 Triumph Trophy 1200 I've only had for a year, and finally, a project 1980 Yamaha XS850 - just something to tinker on. Wasn't really in the market for anything else, but I have stumbled across a used 2013 Trophy SE with ridiculously low miles (<5500) and decent price that has me seriously wondering. Finances are NOT where they need to be (all my play money plus some goes to kid's college), so it would likely require thinning the herd (I really don't ride the Harley much anymore), but I've already been considering that lately.

    Anyway, sorry for the long intro. Back to reading about the SE.

    Welcome aboard Darrell,  :400:, yep `ditch the HD', and go for that low mileage Trophy, just ensure any `recalls'  have been completed...... :821:

    Thanks for the welcome, gents, and yes, it's the blue one on Market Street. I'm actually closer to Southport, NC and was hoping to go by and see it in person soon (maybe today).
