    Hello everyone and beers all round!
    After a 3 years of suffering with the most unreliable bike I have ever owned in 41 years of riding, (last year it spent 10 months in the garage getting repaired and still came back with faults) I have traded in my BMW K1200GT for a 2017 Triumph Trophy 1200SE one owner and less than 10K miles on it.
    I won't get to holiday on the Trophy until next year but the few ride outs I've had on it so far are very impressive. The K1200GT was quicker and I'll miss the way you brake in the corners without it standing up but none of that is any use when its almost always broken and getting fixed.
