    Greetings all!  Just bought a 2013 Triumph Trophy SE a couple of months ago.  Ive been away from riding for about 30 years or so while raising my family.  Kids raised, wife passed away, and its time to ride again.  Looking forward to enjoying this bike!  I salute you all with my beverage of choice (Dr. Pepper)!

     :400: Sunburst and :821:

    Sorry to hear about your wife.

    The first bike in 30 years then my advice would be to brush up on your riding skills, it's a jungle out there.  There is a good guy from Texas on MCRider.  He does YouTube videos and offers sound advice.

    I have ridden around Sugarland many times as I have a good friend there.

    Enjoy your Trophy, I'm sure you will.

    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave

     :400: Sunburst I have a buddy in PA who just started riding again after 33 years same as you, raising family, running construction biz, etc.  He is doing very well and sure you will also.  Just need some gentle seat time to get re-acclimated.  The Trophy is great bike, but can be a handful if pressed hard.
