    Hello all, I bought my 2016 Trophy around two weeks ago and I love it. So smooth, so powerful, so comfortable, and shockingly efficient! My previous bike was a 2018 Indian Springfield in steel-gray metallic over burgundy metallic. It eased a wonderful machine foot the most part but, because of the type riding i primarily do, the bike was becoming expensive. Not to mention,  I couldn't be on the bike more than 45 minutes before getting really uncomfortable. So, for those two reasons, I traded my Indian for a new Trophy. Im far more comfortable than i was before and the cost of ownership is dramatically lower. In less than a year, I put 10,500 miles on that Indian. I suspect that I will need to change the oil twice this year given that this bike is so much more comfortable. I guess i just opened the flood gates for more of "you traded your Indian for THAT" type of comments. Haha. I'm not going back!

    Welcome. I cannot understand a bike which makes you uncomfortable after 45 minutes riding! You have a range of around 300 miles on the Trophy, less if you go fast, more if... well you get the picture. I regularly do 3 to 4 hours without discomfort, fill up and continue if need be. Hope you love your new ride.

    Flux_Capctr.  :400: to the Forum and of course new Trophy ownership. I use an Airhawk on my heated [don't use as I have heated clothing] and have no trouble riding over 1,600 kilometres in a 24 hour period. My with doesn't use her Airhawk anymore, she says her heated seat is more than comfortable as is. I trust you will come to love your Trophy the more you get used to it. Cheers.  :821: :158:
