    Introduction

    Good day, my name is Eddie Boaventura, I live 90km north of Durban in Blythedale Beach, Kwazulu Natal in South Africa.
    I recently up graded from a Triumph ST1050ABS to a 2014 Triumph Trophy 1200 SE ABS with a mere 14000km on the clock.
    I am a superintendent in the Traffic Police with 35 years service, I have driven various motorcycles from the SUZUKI TLS 1000,
    Honda ST1300 Pan European, Yamaha Dragstar, Aprillia Mille and now this machine and I cannot see how it could get any better.

    As Triumph agents in this part of the world is very scarce I have to resort to the internet for guidance and information. I just
    need some assistance in that I need to know if the topbox sliding plate has a slight play or movement in it when the topbox is
    attached to it.

    Thanks for allowing me to join, I hope to see and hear a lot more from the forum.

    Regards
    Eddie

    This forum will be a great help to you, most things can be found here by using the search facility.
    The top box (along with the panniers) do have lateral movement, it's part of a system that is fitted to reduce wind buffeting.

    Hi Eddie ( Sir ! ) and :400: to the Forum !

    You've definitely come to the right place for any questions you have
    about your Triumph Trophy !

    There's no need to worry - the Top Box Sliding Carriage IS designed that way,
    ( if you were to dis-assemble it you would see the elongated mounting holes
    enabling it to move ), and is part of what Triumph calls their
    "Dynamic Luggage System", which is also included on the Panniers.

    They are designed to move like that to reduce the vibration
    that can occur, and make the ride more stable.

    There's an interesting video clip demonstrating how it works,
    in another Forum Topic here :

    Triumph Dynamic Luggage System ( TDLS )

    Cheers  :821:

     :401: Congrats on the Trophy. I'm loving mine. The more you ride it the more passionate you get about it! And this is a good group to share the experience with. Ride on.  :017:
