    Hello From the Garden of England

    Just dropping in to say hello to everyone. I've very recently bought a 14-plate Trophy with just 1,250 miles on the clock (at least, before I took it for a test ride!). Had a great ride out last weekend - a 450-mile round trip to Dorset and Somerset, taking in Lawrence of Arabia's retreat at Clouds Hill, the Tank Museum and Fleet Air Arm Museum.

    I'm very impressed with the bike. I had a Moto Guzzi Stelvio for three years and, before that, a Honda ST1300.

    All the best,

    John

     :401:    Also had the ST1300 , kept it for 9 years it was a great bike but had fallen behind in technology. The TTSE for me is a bit like it , I feel its the result Honda should have come up with had they updated the ST1300 !!

    Thanks, Steve. Yep, got it from Laguna in town. Sourcing a few add-ons seemed difficult for them with the bike no longer in production but I was pleased overall.
