    New member with a new (used) Trophy SE. I've just ridden the 200 miles home with the TES warning light flashing and now I've actually read the manual I'll remember the let the electrical gubbins do their stuff before I set off! I'm sure I'll have some questions that I can't find answers to in the manual, like how do I switch the lights on? Oh, they appear to come on automatically!
    I liked the Trophy to look at and after 200 miles I like it to ride, the gadgets and gizmos will take a little adjustment and will probably dent the wallet at some point, but its part of what appealed. The Triumph joins a few others in my shed, a 99 VN1500 Nomad, a 98 XL1000 Varadero and an 06 FJS400 Silverwing. The others may be relegated to menial duties for a little while!

    Thanks Wilko.
    I'm used to letting a bike run for a minute or two on a cold morning but when did bikes need time to get ready before going anywhere? This is a new concept to me!
    I've had an 1100 pan euro, a K1200GT and a T312 Trophy in the past. Fondest memories are of the Trophy and I think I'll enjoy this new incarnation as much, if not more.

    Hi Cornish, and :400: to the Club !

    Pretty well everything you might want to know about your Trophy is probably contained
    somewhere within the Forum, so make good use of the SEARCH facility from the Top Menu Bar,
    but if you cant find something you need to know, just start a New Topic in a relevant Section
    and you'll soon have the answer   :028:

    e.g. "How do I turn the Lights On ?"

    YES - the main headlights do come on automatically when the engine is started,
    but you can also turn them on without starting the engine ( for a quick check etc ),
    by simply holding the Clutch Lever IN, while turning the Ignition to ON.  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

     :400: to the forum.  Now you have to start figuring out how to get DAB to work for you.  Coconut has that figured out, so if you need help you can search the forum for his posts.

    Cornish, with the SE model, the ecu takes a few seconds to set up the suspension, the none SE model doesnít have this facility, the suspension has to be adjusted manually, my bike is an SE, Just dial in comfort, normal or sport and the ecu / onboard computer sorts it out for you.
