    Hello Trophy Forum members.  I'm considering purchasing a 2015  Trophy  and would appreciate feedback from members regarding your experiences. What do you like most and what (if anything) do you dislike. Thanks in advance. seeg05

    It is best for you to take a test ride on a Trophy if you can.
    What fits me like a glove, might send you to the chiropractor!  :156:

    seeg05,

    I have had mine for over 4 years, I road Hondas most of my life and a Harley for a few years.  The Trophy is fast, fun to ride, and comfortable for me.  As Saddle Tramp said, only you can tell if it "fits"  you.

    One caution, it is a very technically complex piece of equipment.  I am fortunate to live less than two miles from a great Triumph dealer with excellent mechanics.  Although most with rudimentary skills can do oil changes and small maintenance, anything more requires more than I am competent to handle.  I would be reluctant to own one if I was not within a reasonable distance of a dealer who had competent staff.

    One last thing, it is a bike that Triumph  has given up on, so although you may find some great deals, the flip side is resale is tough.

    That said, I really enjoy riding mine, and although I also have a Triumph Explorer (love the motor), my preference is to ride the Trophy.

    Ride Safe and Good Luck with any decisions you make.

    ZShyster

    Hi seeg05, and :400: to the Forum.

    There's plenty of information in here so have a Browse around,
    make good use of the SEARCH Button, and ask away
    if there's something specific you need to know.

    Taking a Test Ride is a "Must" but BE WARNED - Take your wallet -
    You are likley to want to leave a downpayment afterwards!  :169:

    Cheers  :821:
