    Farewell to the Trophy

    In just over a weeks time, I'll be exchanging my 2013 Trophy SE for a T120 Bonneville. The Trophy has been a good bike but with increasing years I'm finding the weight too much for me. My back and arms will be happy.

    I test rode the T120 a few days ago and found it to be just exactly what I wanted, light, easy to manoeuvre, nice sounding engine and powerful enough for me. Mind you I will miss the shaft drive, the electric screen and awesome fuel range.

    So farewell all

    Farewell and a great choice of new bike. I test rode a T120 recently and I was impressed with ii. Happy and safe riding for the future.

    Farewell and happy riding, mine is in for 40,000 service and an oil leak. Have had a Tiger 800 and a Tiger Sport out of them so far. I'm impressed with the Tiger Sport, much lighter and easier to filter with but miss sitting in the bike rather than on it.

    good luck with the new bike.
    I hear you clearly on the heft and girth of Big Girl...  I'm 68 and sometimes the TTSE is a handful.   I'll decide on her fate next year when my '13's extended warranty expires...  I do love the bike!!!
