    Hello everyone

    Hello everyone,
    briefly about myself - I'm from Lithuania, 49, currently living and working in Iceland. I started riding a motorcycle from the age of 14, there were Minsk, Voshod, Ural, Jawa (Soviet Union Motorcycles). Later it was a 20 year break. When I was 40 I bought the first used Japanese motorcycle - it was a Yamaha Drag Star 1100. The first impressions were very good - a lot of chrome, a lot of noise, a lot of power. But after a few months I decided that the motorcycle was not traveling well - the noise of travel is bad, inconvenient for me and my wife on long trips. The next was Yamaha FJR - a very good motorcycle for long journeys on good roads, with this motorcycle traveling a lot in Europe and never disappointing, my wife liked it too. After a few years I wanted to try a different brand - I bought the Honda Varadero 1000. It's a good motorcycle, suitable for long journeys not only on good roads. A few years have passed and you want something new again. I am 6'5, and I need a big motorcycle. I loooked at the BMW R1200RT, R1200GS - good motorcycles, but I do not like the BMW brand - the opinion that if you do not have a BMW, it does not have a motorcycle trip, especially if you do not have the R1200GS. I started looking for analogues and I discovered Triumph - this brand is not popular in our countries, we do not even have dealers. It was very difficult to decide which motorcycle to choose - Explorer or Trophy. I do not have the opportunity to test them, I read both forums and compared them. The opinions of both motorcycles are very good, it is clear that sometimes there are problems - it's a technique.
     Finally, after a lot of words, why am I writing to this forum - I made a bank transfer today, my choice for the silver Trophy SE 2014. I buy this motorcycle with trust in the seller, without a test. If everything goes well, I hope that the motorcycle will be in Lithuania for 2 two weeks and I will be the happy owner of the Trophy.
    P.S. I am sorry for my English

    Hi dvarson and :400: to the Cliub !
    Your English is WAY better than my Lithuanian ! !

    With no Dealer in your Country, you have come to the right place for any help and advice
    that you may need with your Trophy, though of course we all hope you don't need any !

    Cheers  :821:

    Welcome.

    I predict that you will enjoy the motorcycle very much!

    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.
