I actually use my BMW Navigator IV (made by Garmin) on my Trophy as well.
I had to dremel a small notch in the lower bracket to accommodate it, but it works well. Used BMW Navigator GPS’ are readily available.  :038:

I have this Trophy about 4 years and kept in Lithuania. I had a good trip this summer - Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, ferry, and first 700km in Iceland from port to my home in Reykjavik. I payed imports taxes (it's not cheap here - about 5000 pounds) and now I have Icelandic number plates.

Congratulations on finally getting your Trophy home!  :062:
I may try to visit you some day.  :233:

We are looking at Southern Arizona for places to meet and ride and hope we can meet others.
I hope we can get some local riders input for this  :440:

Am I considered a “local rider”?  :187:

It certainly looks like it, unless you can stir up some interest for a place and time. There's still 3 months left in the year, after all!  :169:

I am glad to know that you have returned and that everything has gone wonderfully.

Once again, those kilometers made with your Trophy. They show, without a doubt, that the Trophy is capable of doing thousands of kilometers without complaint.

The only trouble I had during the whole trip was I had to hit the starter button several times to get it started each time on the day we visited the Craters of the Moon National Monument. The problem went away completely after I refueled.

Probably a bad tank of gasoline.  :084:

We got to my house late yesterday afternoon, and Tony is in the process of flying home to Newfoundland as I type this.

Total mileage for the Trip was 5,035 (8157 km), which is pretty leisurely for my standards.  :153:
Amazingly, although we encountered some overnight Storms, we never really got wet while riding the whole Trip. That might be a first for me.  :015:

Thanks for following along!

Hey Steve!  Thanks for all the pics and the narrative.  I know from experience riding with you that when you ride, you always go big.

Showed me some places I definitely need to ride to some day.

I can't say I'm on as scenic ride as you just finished, but I am heading out this morning to Las Cruces and on to Phoenix tomorrow.  Got an appointment to get some service on my bike, don't ya know.

Cheers,

Hey Buddy!
I don't know if it's too late, but if you get the chance, exit I-10 at U.S.70 in Lordsburg, NM, and take that all the way until it runs into U.S.60 in Globe, for the run into Phoenix.

It's a much more enjoyable ride than the Interstate!  :180:
Either way, enjoy your Adventure, and I'm sure Chuck and James at GO AZ will make you happy.  :821:

We are having breakfast in Marshall, MN.
After that, it's a 350 mile ride back to the home base in little Park Falls, WI...
