    Considering Trophy, not new to lovely Triumph triples

    Seriously looking to trade my Nice Tiger 800 well setup for what now are crazy affordable Trophys. Had a Sprint 07 1050 I put about 30 k miles on, loved it but the missus didn't. Tiger is nice compromise, I like I can do dirtroads but would like to be able to ride with missus on long trips occasionally and commute comfortably. So looking to learn more before I take the hit on my Tiger with only 10 k and many accessories.

    Any advice is welcome. Was at TT on Isle of Man this year, rented a Speed triple 1050 had a great time, been riding legally since 1974. My other favorite triple was a Yamaha 750 with drive shaft while in the Coast Guard. Gobs of miles on that bike with the heavy Vetter windjammer 3!  :017:

    Hello and welcome.

    The TTSE is a magnificent machine and is perfect for two up travel.

    Take one out for a test ride and do some reading on this forum. We tend to be very content with our Trophy's.
    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.

     :401: I think you will enjoy the ride.  The weather protection is very good even in some nasty weather.  :821:

    Hi Northwet Neil ! and :400: to the Forum ! - Is it raining up there ?  :745:

    Any question you may have about the Trophy has probably already been covered
    somewhere in the Forum, so make goood use of trhe "Search" button,
    but if there's something you need to know and can't find it,
    just post a question ( "New Topic" ) into the most relevant Section,
    and you'll soon have the answer !

    Cheers  :821:
