    Hello! Doing a bit of research into the Trophy as looking to buy one soon and came across the forum. Currently on a Yamaha Fazer 600 which is great but not really for long distance touring! I'll check the posts on what to look out for, but hints and tips from current owners warmly welcomed  :152:

    Thanks,

    Jus

    Hello there Sheriff

    Where to start, its just a great all round bike that does it all. Long tours, short dash, rain, cold you name it.

    Best thing is a test ride oh and take your wallet. You will need it once you ride a TT  :169:
    It wasn't me !!

    Thanks for the messages guys! Off to test ride tomorrow, and this has been sanctioned by the Long Haired Colonel, so fully expecting bank balance to take a hit... :001:

    I've scanned the common issues posts and all of it seems to be low level stuff, so no nasty scares. Looking forward to trying it out!

    Good day Sherrif and welcome. The Fazer is a fine machine, but the Trophy is an excellent tourer. There have been some issues with the bike, but most seem to have been resolved now. I would certainly have another

    Welcome to the group Sheriff!

    Great bike, great forum!
    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.
