    Now I have two Trophies!

    Just bought this one.
    1991 model , full power version, officially 125 PS.
    Only 12,853 miles from new, with dealer receipts & MOTs to prove it. It looks like a new bike, barely any wear on anything.
    This one is to replace the 1993 model I misguidedly sold in 1999...
    I am looking forward to riding it next year, once I have serviced it thoroughly. :002

    1 x Trophy SE ( my Third Trophy ).

    I don't have room in my garage for any more bikes,
    I can't afford to buy any more bikes,
    I can't ride more than one bike at a time, and,
    I can't think of any reason I would want to ride another bike,
    unless the Trophy is in for Service and they give me a Loaner !  :156:

    Coconut, I have to agree you have a good point!

    In my defence, I only have one modern bike, the TTSE.  I don't want or need another modern bike.
    The others are all between 26 and 44 years old. When I came across them, they were unused, neglected, rotting away.
    I have restored them to good running order, and hopefully saved them for future generations. 
    It took a lot of effort, spread across several years, to do this. But I kind of enjoy it.
    They get ridden in rotation, to keep them in good shape.
    And if you really want to appreciate how good a TTSE is, go ride a Lavereda Jota for a couple of hundred miles!

    So I don't feel too bad about it.
