    New guy, not an owner (yet?)

    Hey all,

    Figured I'd jump in and do the courteous thing and introduce myself -

    I'm Dan, I live in southern Maine, and currently am riding a 2011 Harley Electraglide Ultra Limited. 

    I joined the forum in an attempt to learn more about the Trophy, as I'm considering trading in the Harley for a new '17 Trophy. 

    At any rate, so far the welcome I've gotten from Trophy owners (both here, and from one TT owner on the Harley forums I'm on) has been warm and inviting.  It's awesome to know a good community surrounds this bike, like it does over on the HD side...

    Thanks folks,

    Dan
    2015 TTSE.  It's blue.

    Hi Dan,

    I'm Dan. I used to live up north of you in Bangor, but I'm out in Ohio now. There are a bunch of things I miss about Maine but November, December, January, February, March and April are not among them!

    I've never been on an HD machine but I did ride a couple of other feet forward cruisers. I think you'll find the Trophy a very different ride. I much prefer the standard seating of the Trophy to cruiser seating. The TTSE is a magnificent machine and the prices on them are fantastic not that it has been discontinued. Don't test ride one unless you are willing and ready to buy.

    Are you looking at Blouin's? If so, tell Paul Fisher I said hi.
    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.

    My rides have tended to be standards and sport.  Buy a Trophy for a long term thing or don't.  As in don't buy one if you are not sure.  I love mine and know I made the right choice.  This is your bike if you want something with a lot of power that can dance.

     :400: to the forum.  If you enjoy great handling and test ride the Trophy, a check will self deploy and come flying out of hiding and land directly on the dealer's desk.  :008:
