    Well my time on a Trophy is shortly coming to an end.

    Hi All,

    after 5 fantastic years of riding the Trophy, its time for me to move on. If the Trophy was still available, even better if Triumph had seen fit to do some updates I would have another Trophy, no question. But as they are no longer available, Triumph is losing me to the 'Dark Side' & I am returning to BMW.

    Shortly picking up a BMW K1600 GT Sport, managed to haggle a great deal that Im pleased with.

    So I will be popping in from time to time to see how everyone is doing and hopefully if Triumph come to their senses I might be back on a New Trophy in a few years, who knows. Take care all, enjoy your Trophies and look out for some postings I will make shortly for bits I have for sale.

    Keep it rubber side down,

    Kevin

    Well with Triumphs short sightedness when it comes to a proper touring bike I'm sure I won't be the first or the last.

    As I say when fashions change back and people start wanting a proper protected touring bike to go touring on roads rather than getting all cold and wet on exposed Explorer/Adventure bikes then I'm sure Triumph will launch another Trophy and then I may well be back.

    Manage to haggle them to an insanely good deal and my husband is getting one too to replace his K1300S so they couldn't believe their luck making a sales for 2 K1600s in one go

    I will certainly try to check in from time to time. There are just such great people in this forum, better than any forum I've ever belonged to. I hope the K1600 forum is at least half as good!

    Sorry to see you go CropBiker you have been a great asset to this Forum, thanks for all your contributions.

    Let us see a picture of your bike when you have it, a friend in Germany bought a black version and it looks awesome.

    Can you let us know how much you paid?  Was it new?  What colour did you go for?

    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave

    Soon as I pick it up I will get some pictures and post them.

    I have gone for the K1600 GT Sport in Lupin blue metallic & black. getting a colour matched top box plus ticked all the option boxes, a new navigator VI sat nav plus 5 years service package & 4 years gap insurance all in price touching £26k :005: :005:

    Haggled them down to my Trophy plus £18.5k which I think was pretty good!
