    Hi from the Garden Isle, also known as the Isle of Wight

    Hi to everyone and thanks for letting me join. I'm not much of a forum user so not sure how much I will contribute, but you have to start somewhere.

    Last year I decided to move away from naked bikes and took a TTSE for a test ride. The biggest surprise wasn't that my wife actually wanted to get on the bike with me, but just how good it is. Bought it in my mind after 5 minutes but had to take it out again the next day just to be sure, OK just because I could  :001:

    We spent a week last September riding around the Arden forest in Belgium. We never felt uncomfortable even after 300 miles in the saddle. Such a shame they no longer make them.

    If you can park your bike and walk away without looking back, you bought the wrong bike. Me, I have to look at mine every day  :002: :002: :002:
    If you can park and walk away without looking back,

    You bought the wrong bike !!!

     :400: MJ. To both the forum and Trophy ownership. Love your comment re looking back at your bike. The same as a pretty woman, you just have to have that second look. I still go out into the shed just to look at my Trophy. I'm sure your wife, like mine enjoys the pillion seat for touring. This weekend [Friday midday till Saturday midday] I have a FarRide to do [approximatel 1,043 kms.] all up about 2,200 kms. from home back to home early 1.30am. Sunday morning. I just love the longer distance touring capabilities of the Trophy.

    Hello and Welcome to the Forum!  Since getting my TTSE and joining the forum, I have seen many express the same sentiment.  It is a great 2up bike and my wife has increased interest in riding given our experience to date.

    I was not much of a forum user before either, in fact never a forum user.  However, this site is populated with a lot of very knowledgeable and friendly folks from both sides of the Atlantic, not to mention, there are several guys in particular that spend a lot of time and effort driving traffic and providing information.  It's been fun and I'm just a newbie!  Take care and ride safe with the wifey!!! :028:

     :400: MJ and  :821:

    You live in a lovely place, I guess the only issue being a ferry everytime you want to seriously play.

    Enjoy your new ride.

    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave
