    Hello from Sunny South Carolina

    I just purchased my first Triumph (Trophy) last week.  A 2013 with just over 9k miles.  It had the 10k service and new tires before I purchased. 

    This is a second bike for me.  I wanted something very different from what I currently have which is a Harley RoadGlide. 

    I hope to get it setup enough to do long distance riding with it.  I have not had the opportunity to spend a bunch of time with it yet, but have put on about 100 miles so far.  Already looking to upgrade the seat.  Maybe put the "crash" bars on.  Hope to find some good tips tricks and general information here.  Thanks!

     :400: to the forum.  The more you ride it, the more you'll like it!  Keep an eye on the forum and also ebay for a Russell Day Long that may fit your height and weight.  The do come up occasionally, and Russell charges $175 to rebuild one of theirs to your specs if they reinstall the existing cover.

    I am in the Greenville, SC area (where all the nice riding is). I take a day trip through the mountains just about every month. We should get together sometime. Best part of the Trophy is the ability to ride all year round. I can count the times I have driven a car to work on two hands in the last 5 years with a few fingers left over. The large fairing and windscreen is a blessing during the February rides (aka 3-weeks of "not-summer"). :062:

    I need to ride up and ride with you one of these weekend days.  We just got back from my "Iron Butt Mount Loop" on Saturday.  I rode the Harley this time but I want to get the new bike setup right so I can start having fun on it too!  We rode up from Lexington.  Took us about 11 hours to complete.  Love riding up there.

    I am in Lexington area.   Maybe one day I can get over to the coast and we can meet up for a ride. Takes me about 3 hours to get to Myrtle
