Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Triumphs in Taos pics
« on: September 07, 2013, 09:13:39 pm »
Weather is perfect, roads are awesome. Just finished the morning ride with lots more riding to go. Bike on the left with Florida plates is Don Moe, mine in the middle from Washington, and on the end someone Don and I met who isn't on the TT forum yet from Texas.

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Broke down in Boulder

Front wheel bearing smoked, and I'm thinking the thermostat as the fan isn't coming on. Just spoke to a dealer in Denver that actually has 2 wheel bearings in stock, waiting on my tow. Looks like I'll be late to arrive in Taos.

Audio, Sat Nav, and Intercom / Trophy stereo

Apparently, I am one of the few who loves their stereo, and am happy it came on the bike.  Primarily, I run bluetooth via Sena SMH10 and only shift to speakers after my Sena dies.  Other than that, the stereo from my Trophy has become my garage stereo, and is basically on whenever I am in my garage.  I highly suggest using a battery tender/optimizer if you go this route though.  I have to admit, it puts out some pretty decent sound for a 2x20w system (when stopped, of course).

I haven't looked into the major differences between the North America/UK bikes, but I really like having weather radio built in to the NA versions- that is HUGE IMO, and would have really helped me out on a trip to Alaska 2 years ago.

Audio, Sat Nav, and Intercom / XM Satellite trial

Got a letter in the mail today telling me I had a 90 day trial.  Called and had it turned on, so I guess there was a free trial, it just took XM a while to get it set up.

Accessories and Products / Tank bag

This thing is absolutely brilliant.  The first tank bag I've ever owned that doesn't make me feel like I have to disassemble my motorcycle when filling the tank. Literally one snap, and the thing folds back out of the way.
The single buckle that holds the bag in place.
How it hinges back when adding fuel.

When removed, this is what you see.
I also like the map reader, the fact that it's just 3 quick clips to attach it, and the fact that the seam is actually on the bottom, out of the weather.

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Triumphs in Taos, NM meet up

Anyone on here planning on attending?  I'm going for sure this year, even if I have to ride my Tiger vs my Trophy.

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Those with heated grips/seats
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:27:16 pm »
Can you tell me if the graphics for the grips and seats are always there on your screen, or only there when you power the grips seats?  It's a bit of a grey area, and the manual is a bit nebulous.

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Misc pics from the shop

Original problem- bike died on side of highway.  Solution- replaced battery, then alternator.
Second problem- lost fuel gauge.  Turned on cruise control, fuel gauge came back.  Turned off CC, lost fuel gauge. Triumphs solution- replace battery- didn't work.  Replaced fuel sending unit, didn't work.
In the mean time, various issues with radio working/not working, screen getting stuck, heated seats/grips indicators not working.

Currently in the shop to try and resolve electrical issues, they have swapped out the following without any luck:

Yet another battery.

Updating the ECU has made the radio/windscreen function reliably, just down to fuel gauge and indicators.

Here is a comparison of the 2 wind screens.
