    Hello from sunny but snowy East Yorkshire

    Hi Guys another newbie here...treated myself to a TTSE for Christmas..its a 2014 model, black with 5,500 miles on the clock.

    This is my fifth triumph which includes two speed triple 1050s, a sprint 1050 and  a 1050 tiger sport which I chopped in for the Trophy shortly after deciding to keep it and fitting new tyres and a chain and sprocket set!!!

    I'd been looking for a trophy for best part of a year and had pretty much given up hope of finding a low miler which fitted my budget when I chanced upon my subsequent purchase...

    First move was to junk the OE angels and have Avon Storms fitted...its made a huge difference and thanks to everyone who posted recommendations.

     So far delighted with the bike although its  a bit like riding a supercharged Morris Minor!!

    Weather protection is astonishing....took it on a 70 mile blast to Scarborough and back last weekend..  temperatures with the windchill must have been well below freezing but the only time I felt the cold was when I parked up and took off my helmet and gloves off!

    Looking forward to summer .....happy riding!
