    Hello from Calgary!

    Just purchased a new to me 2016 TTSE with 6400 kms on it.  Looking forward to learning about the bike and riding it next year.  If I'm lucky, maybe next week.  This is my first road bike.  My other bike is a Kawasaki KLR 650. :030:

    Cheers, Duane

    Merritt64, Duane  :400:. How's the old saying go, "from the sublime to the ridiculous". Well there's nothing ridiculous about the Trophy, in fact I'm sure your going to find it the most sublime bike to ride, especially if your interested in long distance touring. I might advise that to get the best out of your tyres [kilometre wise] that you don't run as the tyres as per the recommended by Triumph. I get better life by having 38-39 psi front and 44-45 psi rear. The Trophy's a heavy bike, especially on the front and I get better kms. with the increased pressures. I'm sure you'll sort it out. Above all, get out and enjoy your bike. Cheers.  :821: :158:

    Welcome to the gang, Duane!  Hopefully you'll be able to ride it before it's too late for the year.  Then again, maybe you should wait.  'Cause after riding it for a day or two, and realizing what a great bike it is, it's gonna kill you having to wait until spring to ride it again!
