You are right about not rushing It.
 May 2nd was the event May 11th had some steel put in May 30th bought my Trophy.

So 2slow it is four months working on and cleaning up my new Trophy and the last four weekends small rides.
Last year in September I did a Bun Burner Gold 1500 in less than 24 hours so this year to be setting out is hard.
I was cleaning inside the fender wells  :112: as I was running out of things to check.

How many layers of Wax can a Trophy use before its to much??  :183:

I have rode the last four weekends just a few miles on Either Saturday or Sunday but not both days this last Saturday And went to the dealer up here in the Dallas area and had a new set of Michelin 5 GTís is put on.
They told me I needed brakes so I ordered the brakes and Iíll put them on this weekend!

I just wanted to say I Like the Triumph Trophy and and that an accident is not going to keep me from my new Trophy!

Thank you for your well wishes.
My saying is ď Never Slow Down Never Grow OldĒ
Well I donít use my Whitewater kayak anymore, And I quit climbing mountains.

The  coronavirus is now the officially long lasting thing the Chinese have ever made.

Iím not going to buy a copy of any bike from China or anything else.

 Economic warfare does not equal good product. 

An English bike copied China is still not a English product ,, corners cut to make it cheaper is only good if you donít care about the exploited people that made it. 

A copy is a copy how many people do you think would buy a bmw copy from China

Well I had a little accident in May I broke my left ankle &  wrist and Totaled my 2014 Trophy with 40821 miles.

I put all but 7 miles on it.

My Trophy was a Great Bike so much so two weeks after my surgery I was at the Dealer in Fort Worth TX to see the Trophy they had.
I think they knew they had a sale, I was on crutches looking at a Slow Blue Trophy😎

Iím a Traveler ďmainly to the eastĒ and just donít see how I could do without another Trophy!

Thought Iím not up to my jump on and go for a 1000 mile easy ride Iím counting the days to just that.

Iím not sure why the Trophy appeals to me so much, but Iím sure I will find people that never got to know their Trophy and I will have to buy them till Triumph finds a way to  promote their product..

A 1600 SE to kick the bmw that the Trophy was always  compared to as the 1200 baby was not up to the task. 

All I want to do is ride and see the road,, 24 states and counting.
