    Time for a Change

    I have been thinking of changing my bike for some time.
    Changing to another model has proved to be something that I did not want as the none of the alternatives quite "did it" for me. Some (very few) were a bit more powerful, but the TTSE has enough oomph for me. Some had a few more gizmos, but the TTSE (with my Garmin) has everything I seem to need.
    Recently though on a visit to the dealer for a chat I spied a Black TTSE 2nd hand that was particularly attractive: it already had the Satnav bracket in place - the wiring is fairly easy; it already had Adventure bars, it had the improved switchgear on the right handle bar.
    The Price to change was also attractive

    So bye bye Silver Trophy, hello Black Trophy

    Here she is after a bit of prettying up, and a full treatment with XPC Rustblocker



    Now got Black TTSE
    Used to have Pre-Launch Trophy - lowest recorded Trophy VIN
    Why Threeup? Me, SWMBO and her bear (Fredbear)

    Looks good.  I do like the black.

    Like the idea of the uprated switch gear and bars.  Might think about fitting them to the silver one I have.

    76K miles on my '13.  Been considering trading/selling and getting a '17.  Perhaps new, prices as astronomically low in some areas...   Working through some back issues so depends on that outcome...  As Rocky Balboa said about time: "Time always wins.  It's undefeated..."...

    threeup, what could be better. A new toy, new colour and most of all, already farkled.......to a point. I'm sure you'll find more items to lavish on your new love. :821: :158:

    FYI
    The green trim is my doing.

    I bit at a time - sometimes less is more

    I'm after some reflective tape next for the back of the panniers
