    Been on the forum for a while learning all I can about the Trophy before pulling the trigger.  The trigger has been pulled!  Doing a fly and ride this week and will be bringing a '15 Trophy home.  She will be introduced to an R1200GS, R1200R (my wife's bike) and a Ducati Scrambler.  Slowly building a United Nations garage.  Eager to test the Trophy one outstanding roads in Western North Carolina and the flatter, straighter roads beyond that.

    Looking forward to learning more and creating relationships with you folks. 

    Ride safe.

    DR Steve,

    Welcome to the forum. Enjoy the ride.
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    Welcome aboard  :821: and congrats on your endeavour to build a United Nations stable, though I suspect you'll have difficulties to add a French component, at least a current one except if you can afford to buy one of these:

    Hi DrSteve, and :400: to the Club !

    Does that mean you haven't ridden a Trophy yet ?

    If so then you will be pleasantly surprised -
    even when compared to your existing collection !  :169:

    Cheers  :821:

    Test road a Triumph Trophy and was impressed - very impressed.  I'll report again after a ride it home - 700 miles.

    Welcome DrSteve.  Another lucky Trophy in the land of the Cherohala Skyway!  The forum is terrific with lot of info and support form fellow Trophy enthusiasts.  That French bike looks like the Swiss army knife of roadsters though, Hmmm,   :401:
