    Hello from TN

    Hi Everyone!

    Just traded my Tiger 800 for a new Trophy SE.  The discounted price was compelling.  So far, I am really enjoying the bike.  It is so much more comfortable than my Tiger or the FJR I had before that.

    This forum helped me decide to buy my Trophy over an RT or FJR.

    I am hoping to take my first trip over the Memorial Day weekend, but Hurricane Harvey may cause me to postpone for a while.

    My only farkles so far are a Cal-sci windshield and the heated seat.  From what I understand the comfort seat is no longer available.  The as-deliverd low seat was too low and put my knees in an uncomfortable bend.

    I am amazed at the gas mileage I am getting:  48-50 mpg!

    I look forward being a member of this forum.

    Hi bnajack and welcome.    :062:

    My bike has the low seat.  I have 32" inseam and am tip toeing the bike!  Low miles at present due to the heat (recently broken) and health issues.  Have family in Memphis and Erwin.  Seeing that you're not new to Triumph; always good.  This board has been a good resource to me; hoping you'll use it.

    Welcome. Did you mean Labor Day???

    On a recent trip to TN to see the total eclipse I got 51 mpg.

    Enjoy that new ride.
    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.
