     :401: Hey Neil, good to have you on board. It appears you have a plethora of knowledge about a lot of bikes.  It makes me feel good that I made the right decision in buying my TTSE.  I hope you got a great deal.
    My Best!
    Gary

    Thanks Gary - I'm always learning more all the time, but I did score a great deal - tons of bike for the money, and I absolutely love the Triple engine.  You definitely did well if you own a Trophy, that much I know already.

    Neil,


    Welcome. Good choice of bikes. Barrington, Vermont?

    Nice riding up your way. Enjoy
    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.

    Neil,

    Welcome  :401: there are a few of us in the Chicago Metro area, I am in Elmhurst.  I have put 20K miles on mine and love it.  I too have ridden a variety of bikes over the last 50 years, this being the one I enjoy the most.

    The best part of owning a Trophy is that you have this forum as a resource.  If you have a question, chances are more than one person has already had it, and had it answered here.

    Unfortunately for you and I, northern Illinois is one of the most boring places to ride.

    Again, welcome, and if you have any local questions that I can help, do not hesitate to PM me.

    Guess I wasn't paying attention. Ha!
