I think everyone needs to look at the diversity of Trophy ownership on this forum and appreciate the talents of every single member.  We have expertise on this forum that can solve almost any mystery on this bike, or furnish riding expertise/advise due to years of experience, or add viewpoints from newer riders that us old timers never thought of.  A big  :821: to all  the members of this forum, and thanks for all your input!

In my sixth year of retirement, and loving every minute of it.  :152:

Started cleaning high school classrooms at 14 years old, and worked myself through college doing it. After college, I started in Sales, shifted to Operations Mgmt, then on to Fleet Mgmt, and finally ended up in Heavy Equipment Sales for the last 25 years of my career.

Now that I am retired, I really enjoy learning how to maintain my motorcycles almost as much as I enjoy riding them, now that I have the time. And there are plenty of days up here that are more conducive to wrenching than riding!  :190:

Materials quality control for a large-ish aggregate production and paving company.  Posting this from work while cooking rocks and dirt to make sure we're making good asphalt for a night paving project!

Since, as far as the company is concerned, I figure out how to turn rocks and tar into money, I might also be considered an alchemist?

Been a deputy sheriff for over 28 years and became eligible for retirement this last January when I hit 50 years old.  Planning to retire in 2-5 as I have one offspring starting junior year of high school next month.  Or, 3 bad days in a row...

I have been an EVOC (Pursuit driving- Emergency Vehicle Operator) instructor since 2001 with my department and am pretty sure I am still the only officially certified EVOC instructor assigned to corrections.  Not bragging, just a quirk of what I do as moderately unique.
