Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Used Trophy values, or lack of
« on: June 02, 2016, 06:30:31 pm »
I am currently trying to sell a fine example of a 2013 in very good condition.  No issues (or have been resolved) of the known problems with the early Trophy.  My bike looks, handles, and runs like new even though it has 36,500 miles.  I believe with a lot of confidence my bike will treat the new owner very well and the new owner will not be disappointed.  I have been advertising at $10,500 with very little interest.  So I did some research of Trophy values on the West Coast.  There are currently three in the range $8,000 to $10,500 and all seem to be very nice examples. 

Are our bikes really worth so little?   :435:

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Highest miles vs forum posts
« on: May 25, 2016, 07:00:29 pm »
I thought of an interesting metric:

Miles on your Trophy vs. number of forum posts.  Who has the highest?
(sorry the kilometer people will have to convert)

I'll start:   36,500 miles divided by 216 posts =  168.98

Thanks for looking and have a nice day :002:,  Mark

I just finished a set of Michelin Pilot Road 4 GTs that replaced a set of Pirelli Angel GT A-specs.

My riding style:  I am an ex-racer, actually raced with Nicky Hayden in the late 90's.  BTW, Nicky is a very personable and respectful individual.  Even though I was a slow back marker, he spoke to me with genuine interest and respect.  The Trophy is my first non-sportbike, and I live to ride the twisties, only ride the straights to get to the curves.  And I love the Trophy, it is a "magic" bike.  :001:

Note:  Racing, and my street bikes, Michelin was always my preferred tire choice.  I really wanted the PR4GTs to outperform the Angel GTs.  But..........

Both tires lasted, eerily, the same amount of miles, 5000 front and 6000 rear.  Performance wise there was no noticeable difference between the tires.  Nevada doesn't get much rain, so I cannot comment on rain performance for either tire.

Conclusion:  Purchase either tire, ride fast, safe, and be happy. 

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Shorai Lithium Battery part number?
« on: March 13, 2015, 06:40:47 pm »
I appreciate it if some one knows the Shorai part number or model number for the Trophy SE?
I am trying to order a Shorai battery without taking out the OEM battery.

My research has not been successful.  :006:

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Trophy sighting near Houlton, ME, Aug 12
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:55:43 pm »
A relative of mine is on an RV trip to Nova Scotia/East Coast.  They shot this picture the morning of August 12 near Houlton, ME and Canadian border.  Is it any one on this forum?  No particular reason, just curious.


I have been looking for a pair of summer/hot weather gloves for a while.  I wanted gloves with protection and cooling, with an emphasis on protection (crashing sucks).  After a few rides I can recommend the Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon gloves.  They breathe well, and look like they would survive one crash.  And much more comfortable in the summer heat, than my full Sidi race gloves. 

UPDATE:  I have owned these slightly over a year and they literally fell apart.  I DO NOT RECOMMEND.
