    Ridden all three of them. A Trophy is more comparable with the engine of a Pan European in terms of always having torque on tap. Ease of turning is like a R1200RT but without the side to side shaking and costs of a BMW dealer.
    Combine that with more comfort, a very smooth 3-cilinder mill and a 16k km service interval and the extremely nimble steering... I know I'm biased, but it's a golden combination.
    There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.

    As a bit of a hint, there's one for sale in Grave at Brabant motors.
