Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: it's a keeper

I almost bought a Vision several years ago - it really "fit" me well.  It's hard for me to find a bike that "fits" me well.
The FJR is a great bike, but a bit too small for me.

I have a Russell Day Long seat on my ST1100 and Trophy and I also had a RDL seat on my Concours which I sold this year.

I have a 31 inch inseam and be advised, the RDL seat is a bit higher than the stock seat.  I added a set of lowering links and raised  the front forks 1/2 inch and that helped a lot.

Yea, that makes total sense. Thats why I recomended Durango as a starting point or meeting spot. Good roads and sights close as you head into Utah. Million dollar highway, Mesa Verde, Four corners, Monument Valley etc.
Normally we have a meeting point because some riders come for a distance with limited time.

That way we can have the whole group at once.

So not all people will ride the same route to meet up.

Well, it was 60 degrees today so having my bike back together and it being the only clear day that was not raining or spitting snow and the roads dry, I am amazed. I took it out to see what difference the throttle body cleaning did if anything.I am amazed at the difference. The low end snatchiness is gone, the idle is better and smoothness in the acceleration is better especially at low rpm's. The bodies were quite dirty around the butterflys, caked on pretty good and I think it was catching a little at low rpm.  I also lubed the linkage around the butterflies and their shafts, that might of helped also. I had wondered if all that work involved in doing the job was worth it. I can tell you it was! :001:

Woooo, good, cause not knowing everybody, or how they ride, and how they usually like to travel etc, I was thinking, wow, this is not my place to be. But, I have been around the area in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico from trips in the past that I can help with good roads to go to. Not having a lot of vacation time they were states we could go to and ride and be back in a week.  I never take the straight roads except to get out of my home state.Used to have a guy in the riding group that i was in that rode a Harley and if you let him lead he never took a curvy road even though they were there so you can understand that we did not let him lead hardly at all, even though he wanted to. I'm basically a loner rider nowdays not because I want to be but because almost all my old riding buddies are passed away.My wife rode her own Kawi Vulcan and we took a lot of trips together but because of a couple car accidents(not her fault, both the other people were on cell phones) she has a hard time riding anymore. Like I said, if I can make it, I'd love to. I wish I would have been a member earlier cause we have a friend that lives in Harrison Arkansas. Could have visited them and rode with you guys at the same time. Also have a friend in Missoula Montana if anyone would ever want to go that way.
was on the million dollar hwy in July in my truck; crazy stuff!  12 in Utah is excellent, but other than that, I'll have to refresh my memory a little.  My brother from Flagstaff has spent a lot of time in S Utah/Aquarius plateau and can offer some ideas as well. Kudos to Gonzo, but I was kidding about ride leader, not meaning to put you on the spot. I'm sure one of our fearless members will step up at some point :152:

You will probably be better off by checking another Forum
as this one is dedicated to the LATEST model of Trophy from 2012 onwards,
and the ability of our Members to help may therefore be quite limited.

Having said that, I just did a quick search using the Triumph listed battery part number ( T2500196 )
for your Trophy, and found this on eBay in the U.S. with a CCA of 220, as a "start" :

AGM Battery for Triumph T2500196 2500008-T0301

Cheers  :821:
