    Evening all

    just bought a second hand trophy here in the UK, for both commuting and pleasure (i am really looking forward to the pleasure bit)
    been riding since i was 17 and had several different bikes (all Japanese) so this is my first British bike

    i can say its certainly comfortable and does what i need it to do (even if they have discontinued it) - although i understand that the ACTUAL!!!! reason for its demise is the same as the Honda Pan European as neither bike meet the Euro emission requirements now

    seriously looking forward the the leisure bit lol

    cheers (thats a glass raising cheers) :821:

    Hi Rincy,

    Welcome aboard, I'm not the best placed to talk about the TT as I'm still looking for buying one (still on Pan Euro !) :400:

    Its nothing to do with emissions. Its just fashion, everyone wants adventure style rather than big tourers. its same engine as Tiger 1200 after all and thats just been updated!

    Anyway, welcome and enjoy from a fellow individual rather than a fashion follower!

    Whatever the reason I have a soft spot in my heart for this bike.  A juicy pear the right cheese and a good whisky, nirvana.

    Hi Rincy and :400: to the Cliub !

    I think the lack of sales was the main reason for it being discontinued,
    not Emissions Standards, as Triumph failed to Market / Advertise the bike very well.

    The Explorer ( with basically the same engine ) has been modified to comply with the lateest standards.

    Cheers  :821:
