    Good evening. Isaac here. Just got my Lunar Silver Trophy SE. I will be at Jury's Inn Hinckly next week,  and they have a bar dedicated to Triumph! Came with panniers, so have ordered bags. Also bought a 2nd hand top box ( with key, without cover) and a silver cover from the States.

    A friend who owns a Trophy (and about to sell it) gave me some tips including backing onto a piece of chipboard to get it on the centre stand after I almost gave myself a hernia the other night. He's also offered me his tank bag.

    Any reason why you ordered the silver top box lid from the USA?  They are available from a number of UK suppliers. I think you'll be paying cross ocean charges plus tax...

    Isaac-f. Firstly  :400: to the forum and of course Trophy ownership. As you so rightly point out, nothing is free. Enjoy your new toy, you'll get to appreciate it more as the kilometres increase. Cheers.  :821: :158:
